Another (wo)man's Treasure

We have all heard the saying, "one man's trash is another man's treasure". I just never took this phrase seriously. That was until this weekend. Someone was throwing out a child's art desk. I couldn't help but stop and take a look at it. The dry erase board on it was covered in stickers and markers, but the rest of it was in perfect condition. I decided to bring the desk back home and clean it. With a little bit of Goo Gone, a few Clorox wipes, and a lot of elbow grease the desk now looks really nice. I have been wanting to get Landon one for some time, but haven't been able to spend the $90 price tag on one. I am so happy that he now has a place for his art work. Landon loves to color and draw and now he has a proper place to do it at. Landon had the biggest smile on his face and let out the most excited laugh when he saw it. I also had a new large coloring book on top of it for him. I am not going to make dumpster diver into a career, but I will pay closer attention to what is sitting on the side of the dumpster for now on. Who knows what we will find next. While I am waiting for people to drop off more treasures at the dumpster, I will watch Landon enjoy his new coloring desk.
