Are you throwing that away?

I took Riley for a walk after dark last night and noticed a great baker's rack out at the curb with my neighbor's trash.  I couldn't see very well, but could tell it had wicker-type shelves that were ruined.  That was okay because I didn't care about the shelves anyway -  I wanted to disassemble it.  So I felt where the shelves attached and knew I could get it apart.  It is nice, heavy duty metal y'all - check out it's second life:

The back piece will soon hold a flowering vine.

The side pieces add interest to my hydrangea section.

One man's trash is another's treasure. I would have never thought to do that. Looks awesome! And best of all, you saved space in a landfill!

Curbside shopping! I love it when I find something cool that someone is throwing away. Nice score!

I love FREE! No risk and it's always cool stuff!

That was quick and smart thinking! I like the way you reused the pieces.
