Halloween Ladder Addition and New CURB ALERT!

Buttercup begged and begged for daddy to buy her a tiny painted pumpkin at Home Depot this weekend.  Of course he gave in.  As soon as she got home she ran onto the front porch and proudly said, “see Mommy, I helped the ladder look cute!”  I couldn’t resist that big smile on her face and kept the pumpkin there.  It gave it just the right touch, don’t you think?

 I am sure she will re-organize it a few hundred more times before Halloween!  That’s okay, it’s all in fun!
I mentioned there probably would not be much out on trash day  (*ahem!) Monday but I was surprised at some things that people had out there with the torrential rainfall we had all day on Sunday.  (I am not complaining – WE NEEDED IT BAD!)  but I was just preparing myself for nothing!
There was this couch – I’ll Pass!:
Ummm, how WET is that couch!? dont’ think I care to find out!
And a desk – I’ll Pass!:
I also saw some wood pallets and would love to try a new project w/them but passed them up simply because I am not ready to tackle this anytime soon (and I always see people posting them on Freecycle):
I cannot find the link to this pic so sorry if I am an image thief!

And then I almost peed in my pants when I drove by this cute little chair.  I swerved over  pulled over and scooped up this pretty little WET chair and took it home quick.  *Note to self, in the future put wet things in the back of the SUV and not on the upholstered seats!*  Now I probably need to get out that Little Mean Green Machine that i borrowed from Mom and Dad last weekend!  Back to the chairs… As soon as I got home I took some quick pictures and tore off and threw away all of the wet mess.   I then went out to the store and lo and behold the same household put out the matching chair!


Here they are with my little sidekick who insisted I take her picture with them!


Awwwww, she’s so cute! MUAH!  I have my work cut out for me, these chairs are pretty chippy and shabby!


Any ideas on what I should do with them?  How I should paint or stain them?
Would love some ideas.

I have really enjoyed linking up to parties this past week and meeting new blogger friends!
Happy Treasure Hunting!
