My husband, the dumpster diver....


I am always reading blogs about people who find these great deals for free furniture on the side of the road, or in peoples garbage, and when I read it, I have to be honest, it kind of grosses me out!!! But then they show what they do with the furniture that they find, and I always love the end result. The other day, we pulled up to our condo, and I looked over near the dumpsters, and I saw this changing table. I had Mike go over to the garbage and see what kind of condition it was in, it was in perfect condition, so he hauled it home!!! I called Britnee to tell her about the treasure we pulled from the garbage, and her reaction was the same that I usually have when I hear something was from the garbage or side of the street!!! All we have to do is paint it pink!! My husband is an official dumpster diver!!!

It looks like it's in perfect condition. I have a shark steam cleaner that I use to clean my kids used baby stuff. It blows gunk out of crevices and then I wipe them down with a sanitizer.
