Trashy Tuesday, The Dumpster Giveth, The Dumpster Taketh Away.
Happy Trashy Tuesday!!! It was red banner week of Junque for me. I netted quite the stash from only 3 visits to 3 dumpsters!!! In return for my haul my back gave me some serious problems last week. I like to pride myself on being a strong girl. I think I wrestled the dumpster for one particular item too hard. I won in the end and my back is fine now 🙂
There was so much goodness, I had to make a collage
I found most of these items behind an old Sports Authority that moved. It was raining, but I braved it anyhow. Da junk don’t wait for sunshine!
These awesome solid wood drawers.
Someone must have chopped a solid wood dresser. With a little alterations, these two pieces would make lovely chalkboards.
Here is a lovely mirror from the same set I presume….
Now for some truly remarkable finds from a bonafide Dumpster Dive:
A film reel? I managed to fill a basket with a ton of stuff. Some of it I already gave to the Salvation Army, but look what I kept! A funky little tea pot wire lamp, a box of candles, surge protector, extension cord, scissors, a brand new sponge and someone’s keys. Why would someone throw out their keys too? Unless someone else was doing the dumping of another’s items without their permission. Sad actually. But not to worry, I was there to rescue the scorned lover’s things and keep them from a landfill. If you are looking for a set of keys with Miller Reserve Beer on them, contact me. I can let you back into your apartment.
Here is what I hurt my back for. This thing is heavy!!! I think it is a telescope tripod? Whatever it is, it is so cool!! I am planning on making a lamp from it. There are a lot of cool versions on Pinterest.
This morning I found this metal star!! It looks like one I painted and sold last year. You can see it HERE.
On my way home from the gym, I did a quick drive by and this Trunk was just sitting there on the curb near a dumpster.
This morning I found this basket and this container. Not too remarkable, but the container is helpful. My dog chews my sprinkler system. We have to put a container over it to deter her. The last one cracked apart from weather exposure. I knew I would find one instead of buying one!
This week, the Dumpster definitely giveth. Hope your Dumpster giveth to you generously as well.
