Dove tail drawers there are 4 of them. Seems pretty old and pretty heavy. I am going to repaint it and use it for my crafts. Usually don't find anything and I know I have read some of you find some really nice things! It's a good project for a rainy cool day!
what a lucky find! Do you have a picture of it?
Lucky you! I miss curb shopping - some of my best furniture pieces came from curb picks!
Several years ago, when I was seriously into chair make-overs, was out with SIL. All of a sudden she SCREAMS... CHAIRS!! Pulls a quick... but SAFE u-turn and we were running up the shoulder of the road where someone was putting 2-3 little kid's chairs out for the TRASH!!
Another time was junking with a friend when she spotted a load of OLD 4-6 pane windows at the curb! Luckily, she had a big van so we had room to haul them home for me to paint.
I sometimes shake my head at what people throw away in our area. My DH has threatened to kill me if I bring home any curbside finds. I don't because they are awkward to carry on my bike. We have people out here speeding around from Monday until trash day on Wed. looking for metal junk.
havent been on this board in a long time i have to say thats my whole house all my vintage hutches dressers tv armoire buffet it was all found curbside in one area i am amazed always by what people throw out but i am thankful they do! yesterday i got a cute wrought iron cast iron more like patio set wioth the little table and 2 chairs this thing was so nice nothing wrong except it needs sanded and repainted white from the dark brown first thing i did when i moved was to find out the garbage nights for all the areas around me and go curb shopping!!!! my daughter when she was little would call it night time garage sailing!!! soo cute thats what she thought of it as!!!!

I even had to stop curb shopping because I got too much stuff. In fact currently I'm selling off all that I don't use or need at flee markets. And that is just like that without having to do any t2t to the stuff, all is in perfect condition.
Sometimes when it's nearby and I think I can use it I still pick up stuff. Most recent finds are a perfectly working turntable and a gorgeous really old kitchen table. That has one plank missing at the side, but it's facing the wall so doesn't disturb me.
