The Save a Chair Foundation

November 12, 2007 at 5:59 pm 1 comment

I have a thing for chairs–old, lonely woebegone chairs, sitting on the curb wondering what fate awaits then when the garbage truck rounds the corner. I don’t really need any more chairs, but I keep rescuing them. I see them sitting next to the old mattresses, broken lamps and pizza boxes, full of promise, each with something special about it that its former owner failed to notice or forgot all about when the new dining set arrived from Bernie and Phyl’s.

All I have to share today is a picture of my latest find. This is the “before” photo– I’ll post the “after” photo when it’s finished. In the meantime, you can see another chair I rescued in my last post. This one is a little rougher-looking than the picture reveals, but it will get a fresh coat of paint, a softer cushion, and some snazzy new upholstery. It too will find its place at my table of adopted chairs. The next time you take a walk on garbage day, won’t you save a chair too?
