We did our usual treasure hunting on Friday, but came home empty handed. I think the season is over. Buddy, however, managed to find a few treasures while I was at work on Saturday. Good job Buddy!

So now my focus is on free stuff, and working my way through the shed. The free stuff collection has started already. The first piece I received was from my new friend Denniel, from Good One Den. It’s a little rough, but it has some great details and will be a fun and challenging project to repurpose. And it came with the magic price of “free”.

Driving down the road this morning, I spotted a lady putting furniture on the sidewalk. My brakes will need to be repaired, but I managed to get the truck stopped and loaded up before anyone else could snag them. What caught my eye first was this beautiful child’s wardrobe. I can’t believe what people throw away, this is actually solid wood. This would be fantastic for a kid’s bedroom.

I’m not sure yet what I am going to do with these next two pieces, but the fun of free pieces is the challenge of recreating and updating.

The project for this week will be transforming this mancave bar into a custom painted Seattle Seahawks bar. It will be repainted in Seahawks colors with a Seahawk handpainted on the top. Then it will be for sale, so if you know of anybody in need of a Seahawk bar for their mancave, I will be posting pictures of the finished project soon.
