One Man’s Trash

Today brought a surprise with it.

My husband ordered an entirely new entertainment set-up; our TV has been dying over the last few months—randomly turning off, being unable to turn on, etc.—and our ancient sound system wouldn’t be compatible with the new TV that’s on it’s way, so everything is being updated.  The first of the deliveries arrived this morning and my husband was really excited; I was less excited, because it showed up at 6 a.m., and I’m not a morning person.

A monstrous subwoofer has invaded our living room, like some giant monolith from “2001 a Space Odyssey”.  It’s impressive, but what caught my eye was the packing material:

You know what they say about one man’s trash being another man’s treasure.

While my hubby only sees packing material, I see play scale potential for some great furniture.  After the preliminary cut, I’m convinced this will work out nicely as a couch.

There are three other, similar pieces and I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to do with them just yet.  I’ll be sure to upload photos once I’m done transforming this into a comfy couch for Eve and Cole.
