I'd go the extra mile(s) for a fun piece of junk!

Look what I spied on someone's curb this morning on my trip into town!...... 

I HAD to have it! Unfortunately, I didn't have my minivan, I was driving my son's car.  So..... 

this is how I had to transport it home!  No rope or bungee cord, no red flag, just one leg caught on the inside of the truck.  OH, BOY.  So I decided to go for it.  I took back roads all the way home.  Much longer route, and dirt roads and potholes (which only increased my anxiety of it flying out), but I could go as slow as I wanted, pick it up if need be, and avoid others on the road -- ;). 

So I got it home safe and sound.  YAY!  Here's the view from the back.  I think it's a section of bowling alley seating.  I love the retroness of it.

However, it is going to need a little love.  Not sure if I'll repaint or unpaint, but underneath the end pieces is a salmon pinkish color.  I do have a few fun pieces to compliment it.  So I think it was worth the extra miles and worry. 

So how about you?  Are there any items you're willing to take any extra crazy ride for?

Too funny. Done that too. One time it was an aqua naugahide armchair sticking out the back! Enjoy.

Oh yes, we have left the back door open, even in the middle of winter.

This is sooooo cool. I love a bit of soft industrial and this fits the bill perfectly. What will you do with it? What an awesome find!
