For 3 days I begged my husband to dig this suitcase out of the dumpster in the alley behind our house. Once he finally did, I cleaned it up and he added some legs. It makes a cute little table in our dining room. I would like to find some sturdier legs eventually because it is a little wobbly, but everyone who comes through seems to like it. Last night he dug an old blue radio flyer wagon out of another Dumpster for me. I'm going to use it in the garden...more to come!

Take Care,
