A new table for my retro living room – and it was free!

6 Comments

As you probably already know about me, I’m quite thrifty and I like to get a bargain but this one takes the biscuit – I got this lovely retro table completely free!

I was pretty lucky with this one, as it was sat outside a house nearby (I was just walking past back from the pub – something that I rarely do – honest!) and it had a sign on it ‘free to a good home’. And I don’t think I’m being cheeky when I say that I could definitely give it a good home – it is absolutely perfect for my retro-theme living room that I’m currently working on, it’s just the right size for my tiny home and the fact that the two sides fold down to make it even more space-saving is a bonus!

I love it and if I’d seen it in a shop I may have even paid for it, but to be fair I’m not really in a position to spend a lot on anything and would have had to walk away, so I’m delighted that one of my lovely neighbours offered it to someone who may need it (and would love it!). The way I see it, I’m being helpful clearing out something that someone else no longer wants; its being recycled and won’t end up at the dump – I’ve often been at the household recycling site and seen things in the skips that are perfectly lovely and that I could make use of, but the regulations at the tip say that nothing can be taken out of the waste containers (probably too dangerous) so I’m often saddened to see things being dumped unnecessarily.

I am so happy with it, In fact I’m sat at it now while writing my blog post 🙂 What do you think of it? Would you take something that was being given away? Have you seen anything at the dump that you wish you could have taken & made use of? Leave me a comment below:

  5. What an awesome find! I love freebies! Have you ever been on freecycle? My boyfriend and I have been using it as we’ve just moved in together and have no money to spend on nice furniture, or even nice things at all. It’s been so useful for us!

    So far we’ve got a nice cupboard/counter for our kitchen and a desk chair. We are looking for some drawers now as we need some more storage space.

Please leave me a comment, I'd love to hear from you!
