Smaller furniture pieces, such as the table, chair and bench seen here, are often seen in the trash pile. Be brave and rescue pieces from the curb before they end up in the dump. Mismatched furnishings work nicely when the finishes are similiar. In this photo, the pieces all have a similiar worn, grayish patina. If you find disparate pieces, give them a coat of paint to make the grouping look more intentional.
