Hello, my name is Danika...

and I pick my neighbor's trash.  
I was gonna get all romantic about it, and try to put a pretty spin on it by naming this post "Roadside Attraction" or something cute- but lets be real. 
This is what I found today.  Check out the amazing lines on this baby:
I couldn't resist.  
She just needs new upholstery. I really like the cream pleather and I might just replace it with a faux cream ostrich.  There was also a great bergere chair across the street in need of some love, but I made a pact with myself and my husband that I will only hoard what I will use and love.
 In other news, its gonna be another unreal 80 degree day here. I am determined to get out later and finish cleaning these up...

 The porch floor is getting power washed, mosquito netting curtains getting washed ...
 as is all the furniture...
Also, Cheryle gets mad at me for always sneaking peeks (as do many of you because I sneak them a bit too far in advance and make you wait)- but whatever. I'm impatient.

This prototype came back. There are two more that are way cooler arriving tomorrow...
and these quatrefoils will be on the O'verlays site today or tomorrow.
Depends on if I actually blow off work and get sucked into the 80 degree vortex.
Please forgive me if I do.
Happy heatwave Northeast!

Oh I love the quatrefoil! I love sneak peeks. I need to clean my flower beds too, ugh! I can't believe its going to be warmer there today than it will be in Texas! Crazy weather!

I love that you rescued that chair! It's beautiful and most definitely did not belong in the trash. :)

Yes! I most definitely would have grabbed that chair too! What a find!

Great find on the chair! There are so many possibilities with that thing! Oh the things people throw away...

Love the chair and I LOVE the new overlays! Seriously I need to buy more pieces of furniture so I can use these somewhere else- I am obsessed!

That is a great find! You know, for the time being, Magic Erasers by Mr. Clean work wonders on pleather/vinyls!

Isn't it amazing what people will throw out? Kills me. At least take it to the Goodwill! Love the chair--SCORE!!

I just live north of you can you tell me when trash day is so I can perhaps find something this lovely?

That chair is a MAJOR find! Look forward to seeing how you transform it.
