Got this retro wagon wheel rocker in the TRASHPILE! Can you believe somebody was throwing this beauty out??? Burgundy naugahyde upholstery is completely intact. It only needs the nailheads reattached on the top of the back and one of the arms tightened! I dont know what to do with it yet...probably sell it after I fix it. But I LOVE it.

I shook it to see if it would fall apart. I pulled it away from the other trash and it was in one piece! So I actually dragged it to my house 3 doors away and while dragging it, my neighbor came out and said," its a nice chair, huh?" I was a little embarassed that I was "stealing" his trash but I lied and said it was for my sister! There is a certain thrill in trash pickin, eh?? :) Posted: 7:37 pm on January 18th
