As I've mentioned before, you can get a lot of stuff from the streets in Barcelona. In fact, the majority of our apartment is furnished from the streets*. We found this old chest of drawers which had woodworm, which I had to eradicate immediately. Last week, we were walking and found this volume of books that have the perfect amount of wear and tear. Our friend Manuela found a shoot of this plant laying in the street and she gave it to us with the instructions to put it in water. We found this vase in the back of one of our cabinets when we moved in. It's amazing what can be done with the stuff that no one else wants.
