My New trash to treasure find

When I lived in St. Louis there was unbelievable things set out to the trash.
Where I live now. Nothing is thrown away unless it is unusable by any one.
This shelf is savable though.

It has one bar on the back side that is rusted through. I will clean it up paint it and put a piece if pvc plumbing pipe over it to hide and secure the bar. Then I have a bakers rack for free. As I have left over paint and pvc.

We will be having our Thanks giving gathering Saturday.
As my youngest has to work on Thanks giving day.
She just finished CNA classes last month. Now she is working at a nursing home. And she has already saved the lives of 2 people in the last 3 months. I am so proud of her.
Blessings to all.
Have a wonderful day!

Cool find! No one ever throws anything good away here, either.

How thrilling is it to see your seeds sprout into little plants? That's one of my favorite parts of gardening!
