Score...for Free

Yesterday as I was going to the swimming pool for water aerobics I passed a house with a big dumpster in the yard.  I went back later and asked if they were moving.  They said no they were just cleaning out the basement as they had water in it.  I asked if they minded if I took anything.  They said go ahead take anything you want as it is going to all be thrown out.  So here is what I got for free.

Two red wooden folding chairs

 An exercise bike,  2 painted crates, a crate with graphics and a wooden stool

I also got a movie real, a black tray and an old muffin tin.

 I power washed them and left them in the sun to dry and then went back and got a few more things.

An old wooden ladder that is a pale, pale aqua and more wooden crates.

I think I am going to have to have a sale!

Linking up with Debbiedoo's Newbie Party

How did you get all that home? Two trips? At the first of your post, I thought it was just going to be that you got two chairs and brought them home and painted them or something...but you surprized me by ALL the things you just kept on listing! I'm glad you rescued those things...someone will enjoy them.
