Happy Trashy Tuesday!! If this is your first time here, welcome to trash talk. Not THAT kind of trash talk. This is a discussion of what Trash I found the past week. Around here, it is referred to as “Junque”. When you add “que” to a word, it automatically makes it seem more exotic and sophisticated. See, “Junk” or “Junque”!
If you like messes, then come to my home. We spent the weekend ripping out all the carpet in our upstairs hall. The stair carpet was supposed to ripped up next. In a burst of DIY craziness, we decided to do the whole schmeil.
I will probably burn through my brand new belt sander, but so far, so good! Lots, and lots, and lots of sanding. Filling, Priming, and then paint. Stay tuned (like until my kids go back to school) for the “after”. Here is some “during”.
We believe in making our kids do the heavy lifting:
Lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, and lots of staples were harmed in this process
Let’s get to the Junque.
I literally picked this up on the sidewalk. Free as a bird she was, waiting for someone to pick her up. I think she is pretty good all on her own. What do you think?
It is a close cousin of the rusty retro chairs I found last week.
I discovered a NEW hot spot for furniture. I would tell, but you all might realize I have finally crossed the proverbial line of decency when it comes to Dumpster Diving. Let’s just say, the previous owner of this headboard will most definitely not be taking it with them where they went. I liked the details of it, it would look great cut apart for individual coat racks, signs, etc. (By the way, can you see my Dave Matthews Band “Fire Dancer”) on my van? We go see them in September. Not that I am counting or anything…..
That’s a wrap here. If you can guess where I got that headboard, you get 10 bonus points . (I don’t know what 10 bonus points will buy you around here, but it sounds good doesn’t it?)
