Trash? (part 2)

Our first "Trash?" post was actually quite a teaser because we both have a lot of "trash" in our houses.  I (Jeannine) decided to show off two of my pieces today.  Hopefully, between Erin and myself, we can post some of our trashy gems every few weeks or so.  It would be really great if we were able to inspire a wanna be trash picker into an actual trash picker.  But trash picking definitely comes with a warning - be sure to inspect the items carefully for bugs, mold, rot etc.  Clean everything off before you bring it into your home.  Once you deem something acceptable, the sky is the limit!  As you saw from our last post, Erin transformed that book shelf into a dreamy vintage masterpiece.  You can get as creative as you want or leave things in their original form (which is the route I usually take).  No matter what form your trash picking takes just remember that the old saying is true (cliche or not): one man's trash is another man's treasure.

What: A 1960s Claritone Hi Fi AM/FM Phonograph Cabinet with Garrard Auto Turntable.
Found: In our neighborhood right around the corner.  It was just sitting on the curb ready to be picked up as trash.
Condition: Working!  We have a tube tester and we found that it has a  few leaks so the quality isn't what it used to be.  But it works, nonetheless...not to mention that it looks amazing.
Misc.: If you look up this brand of cabinet and turntable combo, you'll be blown away by some of the mid century modern designs that the company put out. AND the insane prices that it goes for.  But, again, our was free!!

What: A 1960s (or early 70s) H.T. Cushman "Colonial Creations" drop-in chair.  The great lime green cushion lays over steel bands hung by springs.   
Found: About 10 minutes north of our house in Manahawkin, NJ.
Condition: Overall good shape.  The wood, steel and springs are all undamaged but the cushion is a bit sun stained and worn.  It's hard to tell though and we like to think it adds a bit of character.  Maybe I'll commission Erin to reupholster it someday.  I have a list of things she needs to work on for me :).  
Misc.: My fiance found this with the matching couch (it was off the hook amazing) but we didn't have any room to store it at our house or in the School of Vintage storage garage.  Chris and I put it on the curb with a "free" sign and it was gone within the hour of putting it out.  I don't want to say that I regret doing that, but I am also not ready to talk about it.
