Dumpster Diving Find
If it weren't for my husband, I would probably spend my free time dumpster diving. He tends to frown down on that one curious past time of mine. People throw away such great stuff! I just see the potential, sometimes it just needs a little love.
Yesterday, my kids and I took our recycling to our local recycling center. While we were there, I saw a man getting ready to dispose of an old Foosball table. I finished what I was there to do, then I spotted something. No, I didn't come home with the table. It was just beyond repair, but I did get the rods from the table.
I was excited because they were Star Wars. In our family, anything Star Wars is golden. I called my husband all excited, because we actually had considered buying one of these tables in 2005. My thought was to use the figures in some way to make something for my son's bedroom. But I think my husband is interested building our own foosball table for the Man Cave.
