What WAS I Thinking?

Okay I think I have officially lost my mind. I saw this settee sitting alongside the road to be picked up by the garbage collector and thought, "How can anyone throw away this lovely piece of furniture"? Well several miles later, hoisting it out of our truck (it weighs a ton) and with it now sitting in my garage, I think I know why. It is in much worse shape than I originally thought so at this point I am planning to tear it apart and use the lovely wood for something. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. I love old things, but I think even this has outlived its usefullness as it is... but it sure makes a pretty picture doesn't it?

Oh how I wish you lived closer - if you were close to San Diego, I'd buy it from you.

You could put it on Craigs List and sell it.

Don't tear it apart - it's has tremendous potential to be brought back to its splendor.

Just putting my two cents' worth in.

Well, my name is Sandi also and I have one just like it. I paid $20 for mine, I not sure what to do with it either. Craig's list not a bad idea. Have a nice week and I live in CA if someone would like to pick mine up. Sandi
