Welcome to Trashy Tuesday! Sorry we missed each other last week. I am back with plenty of Junque to share. I have everything from true trash to amazing freebies. Be amazed and astounded, and maybe a little jealous……
You know how hard it is to find a free dresser, with all the drawers, and the hardware, and it is cute too? I got an email from a very sweet local reader, asking if I would like this dresser. WOULD I LIKE THE DRESSER??? How soon can I be over???
She also threw in a few very cute little decorative pieces. I didn’t get a chance to photograph them all. Here is a little decorative chair, (no before photo). In a hurry to fill my space at Paris Flea Market, I put one quick coat of CeCe Caldwell’s Traverse City Cherry, sealed with Endurance, and it was ready to go!
I also found a free lamp while cruising the streets near my husband’s office. Ummm, I forgot to take the before pic here too. It was your basic brass lamp. Two shades of CeCe Caldwell’s Vintage White, one coat Endurance. DONE! I had the lamp shade I had purchased from a garage sale. It sold at PFM after only being there for about 5 minutes!
Can you spare a chair? Apparently I can. I love my little red office chair from Ikea, but I don’t love the hard plastic. I am ready for a grown up, important person, office chair. I know it is in sad, but when I get around to it, a new upholstery job and it will be fab. I checked, the chair came cootie free.
Can you believe this? Me neither. I found this last Friday night when I was supposed to be getting our take out of Burritos. Just a detour to see if there was anything good in a nearby dumpster. Believe it or not. I waded in. There was nothing. NOTHING!
But….next to it was a large box of rotting pumpkins and on the top was this box of ornaments. What, this is not what you do on Friday Night?
Isn’t this is a cute little frame? It was actually yanked off of a falling apart bathroom cabinet. I will lose the Palm Tree, but it has potential.
Trash talking taking it out of you? Have a seat. Actually, don’t have a seat. The bottom of the seat is cracked, but the stool is good. Easy to cut a new one, cute fabric, it will be good as new. Then you can have a seat. I won’t crack any more bad jokes.
That wraps it up for this week. Hope you have a totally trashy week full of junque!
