Welcome to Trashy Tuesday. The trashiest day of the week. Would you like to redecorate your house without spending a fortune, or how about nothing at all? I can help you! I love to see a Uhaul pulling away as I embark on a dumpster dive. YES, someone moved and I am sure they left some things for me!
Now to be fair, I received this lovely tufted bench from a sweet friend who decided she was not so into refurbishing it. It has a bum leg, but I will love it like one of my own, maybe even more. Isn’t it gorgeous!
I lover Survivor and Amazing Race. I never seem to have the time to watch the episodes I recorded. Now my family and I can eat all our meals on these fun REAL WOOD TV trays, stand included! I can’t wait to make something fun out of this set. I almost bought a set to repurpose at Goodwill recently. (Not for me, I would never eat in front of the TV or allow my children too……….) ahem. I love to bake and I love displaying dishes and cute kitchen things. I wish had room for a cute Bakers Rack like this one I found.
And after I bake some home made bread, I would love to have a place to store the bread. Maybe this Bread Box! Think of how fun it will be in one of my favorite DIY Paint Colors.
I’ve been waiting, for a dresser like you, to come into my life. I’ve been waiting, for a dresser like you, to make me feel alright. (Bad Foreigner song) I am pretty sure they were not singing about a dresser). I was SO feeling alright when I found this HUGE dresser. Now, mind you it is a bit countryfied, but my goal is to completely transform it. Let’s hope what is in my brain actually translates to a furniture makeover.
You can see on the right side of the picture I sort of jumped the gun and was eager to start….
Guess what else?!! The original dresser owners left me two birthday cards, this is my birthday month after all. How did they know?
Except I don’t remember having children named Gordon, Jenn and Brandon, and maybe Jonny?
Last Saturday, one of my neighborhood communities was having a garage sale. This frame didn’t get the memo that it was for sale. It was leaning against a street sign by itself. So sad. Maybe someone had buyers remorse and ditched in on the long walk home.
This last dresser is very close to my heart. My husband (aka suffering husband) found this one night last week and stayed with it until I could get to it with my van. Then he loaded and unloaded the whole things for me. And it has all its drawers. Now that is true Junk Love.
I hope your week is springing up good junque every where!
