My sibling reupholstered a sofa she found in the dumpster

Ever since I can remember, my father and sibling have been obsessed with dumpster diving; Over the years, they have found so various things inside these dumpsters; As a child, I got clothes, shoes, toys, and so much more, and at the time, I didn’t know where this stuff was coming from… It was literally Christmas every day in my house, and as long as I got a current surprise, I was always cheerful; Well, it has been well over 20 years since they have been dumpster diving and though my dad is no longer doing it as much as me sometimes, she would join him especially if my sibling needed help with something, and that happened last weekend when my sibling found a sofa on the side of the road; She called my dad because she wanted this sofa so badly.

It was a brown leather couch that was surprisingly in fantastic condition. Aside from a few blemishes and some small cracks in the leather, the sofa was sturdy and perfectly fine, and so, I understand why my sibling wanted it so badly. She planned on reupholstering the sofa and keeping it for himself… Luckily, she has a neighbor who owns a reupholstering and weather repair business in town, so she was able to get the sofa over to her shop. Within a couple of afternoons after the sofa was reupholstered, it looked like a brand current sofa. In fact, if I didn’t know that it was from a dumpster, I would have never guessed it! My sibling got a brand current sofa and all she had to do was pay the cost for it to be reupholstered. I consider that a win for dumpster diving.
