  3. I am glad you won the dumpster fight! Keep up the good fight!

  4. The chair seat looks like Swiss cheese because those are ventilation holes to keep it cooler when it’s hot out. You might look underneath the seat to see if there are holes around the edge of the opening. Those wood “lids” were often used to cover a worn-out caned seat on chairs.

    Great finds! Can’t wait to see what you do with the sewing cabinet. I rescued one from a thrift store years ago. They weren’t selling it they were going to throw it into the dumpster! I said ‘oh no, I’ll put that into my car if you don’t mind’ … alas, the cute sewing cabinet which has great potential has been in my garage ever since. I love the idea of adding wheels and making it a rolling island.
    I hope to ‘redoux’ it soon!
    Love your website….thanks for sharing all these great ideas with us
    Happy Earth Day!!
