New Roadside Find for My Balcony

I am still amazed at the things people get rid of when they move. This nice little table is perfect between my two deck chairs on the balcony.

It weighs a ton and has very nice stone mosaic squares set in concrete. I'll have coffee there in the morning. Enjoy your evening. xo

What a beautiful find!

Mama Pea said...

Very attractive and, yes, heavy was the first thing I thought of. Hope you had help getting it up the stairs!

Amazing how the mosaic tiles match the color you painted your new chairs.
I hope you rolled it home. I'm with Mama Pea---hoping you had help getting it up those stairs.

I was talking with a friend just yesterday telling her I hesitate to buy a large pot to transplant a root-bound rhododendron. Selecting and buying isn't the problem. It's getting the pot home, and up the stairs to that corner of the deck. I refuse to risk my back.

Gail and Mama Pea --

I have a mover's dolly which I use all the time. My deck is off the first floor so I didn't have to worry about stairs. My house is on a slope with a walk out basement. That's why I have a balcony.
Yes, it is truly amazing how well the table goes with my newly painted chairs.

Wow, you find the best stuff on the side of the road. Love the mosaic top, wonderful colors of tile. It looks perfect on your deck...obviously meant to be.

The Queen Vee -- Victoria, It's that time of year again when the local fire department has an auction and an outdoor flea market and people are actively donating. Some people have already started putting things out for the annual trash pickup after the auction at the end of September. Most things aren't trash at all, just unwanted stuff. The good things get picked up right away and it saves the town the expense of pickup and disposal. I always find something amazing!
