It’s often been said, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” This statement could not be more true. There is nothing more exhilarating than finding a piece of furniture on the side of the road or at your local Salvation Army! It’s the hunt and the unknown behind someone else’s trash that makes it my treasure.
It was a challenge a year ago when I moved into my apartment on a shoe-string budget with no furniture. How was I going to afford the trendy nightstands that you see in magazines? Oh and that cute accent chair with the perfect throw draped over it? That’s when I started scavenging local flea markets, tag sales, and thrift shops to find the perfect pieces that were budget friendly.
