Welcome to another edition of Trashy Tuesday, where we talk trash, literally!
How was your week, full or trash? Did you just feel like you couldn’t take any more garbage? I did! But in the best way. Believe it or not, I DID get my car into my garage for about three days, before it filled up again with some amazing finds.
Here is my round up:
Let’s start with what I didn’t pick up……Suffering husband was happy I passed this by. No resale value here. Really, someone else’s easy chair. Even I have my standards. Le Yuk!
You may be wondering what these are. I am too. On Saturday I was playing a little Tennis with my kids at our local High School. Of course I had to walk behind the courts on the way back to the car, the dumpsters were here! I found these things laying in the ground. They had some kind of puffy thing in them that I skillfully removed with my foot (they were pretty dirty). I had the idea they would make cool shelves. Just stick some salvaged wood through there. I instantly have some shelves!
How often do you find a dresser with all it’s parts intact. Mainly, the drawers. I found the dresser, AND it’s drawers at an Apartment Dumpster Dive (one drawer was camera shy)
Just when I was ready to give up looking Saturday morning, (it was a quick trip, only two dumpsters). I had the feeling to cruise past a parking lot to check one more dumpster. As I was pulling out, I noticed the side of the building, the gate was open and something caught my eye. Of course I had to go investigate…..down a path, I first found this chair laying on a pallet.
I ventured down the path and followed the trail of rubbish, and came upon the rest of it’s sad family. One member didn’t make it. It had succumbed to the elements:
Now I just have to find some time to give all this trash a good Redoux. Hope your week is full of junque of the best kind.
