I often look when I drive by the dumpster corrals to see what people at my condo complex leave out because sometimes there is some cool stuff. I got a lovely Dumpster Chair about a year ago.
I now have some lamps for my guest bedroom:
Woo hoo! Free lamps! I did have to get some adhesive to close the split lampshade. I would replace the lampshades entirely, but they are attached below the socket, and would require a little work to replace.
For now, they’ll do very nicely. Now I just need to get that spare room cleaned up. I have some visitors coming soon.
