  4. We see that a lot here too. Often someone comes by and takes whatever is there. Sometimes the pile just gets bigger and then their yard turns into a dump.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ☺

    I would grab them - free furniture! And I bet Pinterest has tons of ideas of what could be done with spare drawers.
