trash or treasure

Monday, April 19th, 2010


Every year a very fancy neighborhood in Chevy Chase, MD has a “trash or treasure” weekend where residents can do a little spring cleaning to get rid of the items they no longer need or want and the town offers a bulk trash pickup. Since I found out about this event I’ve made sure to make my rounds each year to see what treasures I can find. It seems that this year the event was a little more well known by outsiders which was a little discouraging. But I was able to come away with one treasure for the weekend—this cute little turquoise ottoman which is in really good condition; just needed a little cleaning to whip it into shape. I love the color and mid-century modern style of this piece—yay for free furniture!
