Sidewalk Boutique

My new favourite store is this amazing local place called Sidewalk Boutique. I tend to find the cutest things there when I am not even looking...

Like this side table:

OK OK OK.... Sidewalk Boutique is also probably called "garbage day" for most people. You got me.
But come on people, sometimes you just have to keep your eyes open and see the possibilities.

A little paint... a little fabric... some elbow grease.... and you have your own very unique, solid wood, clean and shiny, and (minus beautification supplies) free piece of furniture.

Like so...

Curbside.... is now side table.

Saw you on One Pretty Thing. You are FUNNY. My boyfriend crinkles up his nose when I point out something I found by someone's garbage bin. I'm gonna start referring to it as "from the Sidewalk Boutique" and see if he notices. Great job on the table - great vision for someone ele's trash!

The mister in my house has also raised an eyebrow over the things I've rescued (and recuperated!)curbside.
