Happy Trashy Tuesday! I am so excited to share my finds this week. I had a BANNER of a week with Junque. I almost (well maybe I did) do a little dance when I found this item. It is a jalopy of a Pie Safe, but it is the coolest thing, and I think it is still salvageable. It was in a Dumpster area I haven’t checked before. I felt a little sad, like maybe it has been there for LONG TIME and was just getting worse with each passing month. I think one more rainfall and it would have crumbled apart.
I think I will have to do some major modifications and make it into two pieces. The drawers were all intact, the body of the drawers are metal! I can save the wood panels in the cupboard doors too, just have to pull off all the veneer. Look at all the cool stuff inside!
Check out that hardware!!
It is such a bummer when I drive behind my local Kirklands and they are destroying these huge mirrors and such because they can’t just throw them out if they are cracked (or people like myself will pick them up and I guess this leaves them open to problems, I promise, I don’t cause problems!)
Someone didn’t finish their job, or maybe they took a potty break and thought the frame would be safe. I grabbed it fast! I thought it would make such a cool chalkboard and the frame all painted out. Woowee.
It says $109. I got it for FREE
I found this chair just waiting for me at my first stop this morning. Basically it was saying “Good Morning, nice you stopped by to pick me up, now I don’t have sit here all day feeling so undignified”.
Last but definitely not least. I found this massive pile of books with a giant FREE sign on my way home. They were almost all the same little girl horse book series, but there was a complete Mark Twain in there and some other sort of interesting books. I see some cool book page crafts in my future. Let’s hope my future actually doesn’t get all tangled up with my cosmic Karma of complete backloggedness on EVERYTHING. Oh Summer, you have made me into a Sloth. I.E. Who keeps their car like this. (me)
Hopefully this week will find me working diligently with a master plan of efficiency. I have Paris Flea again in two weeks! Sometimes I think pressure is the best motivator.
Hope your week is totally trashy and full of JUNQUE!
