I am sort of a "drive by" shopper. I will cruise slowly by yard sales to eyeball the merchandise before stopping--I tend to do the same thing to trash piles. Last Saturday I saw a bookcase, books, and a table base--unfortunately, my vehicle was packed with 2 coffee tables, an end table, and 4 chairs. After I unloaded at the antique shop, I made a mad dash back to the "trash" I had seen--bookcase and books were already claimed and the table base was beyond repair.
But down another street I saw this------->
Yes, it looks rough and you wonder why I could possibly want, or need, chair legs. To be honest, I didn't know when I picked them up but I do see possibility in them. They would make a great primitive/rustic plant stand--just sit your potted plant in the middle and the legs will "frame" the pot; remove the horizontal spindles and the others make great architectural salvage; or use the "legs" as a great photo prop. And this is what I did!
