Hard rubbish looting

For months my husband and I complained that we needed a stool for the outside benches. I couldn't justify buying new ones because I'm just too tight to buy new ones for a work area.
And there it was
one stool for my husband.
Tube steel legs and a broken wood seat that I can fix in a blink or make a new one. Being a woody comes in handy

and then as I was briskly walking home at 12am with stool in hand there it was
my stool
rust and all
its mine
I remember these when I was a kid
wow its old
And its a step ladder too.
I'm so rapt
Ill clean off the surface rust easy, clean off paint splats, find a rubber stopper for the leg and voila, a perfect stool/stepladder for my wood cutting bench:)
Going back out tonight to collect a few more items that I spied.

LOl the step ladder stool - I havent seen one of those in a longer time than I could bear to admitt to! LOL Great finds both and WAY TO GO!!!!
Why do people insist on buying more crap made in crap factories, instead of making little effort go a long way...WHY??!!

Ooops, getting silly again, sorry!

BTW - your new header makes me want to get productive :)
