    You could make the mirror into a necklace/bracelet holder by filling the center hole with recycled wood and hammering in a few (decorative) nails, but I’m sure you already have an idea or two. Good grabs!

    Great finds! That dresser is wonderful and will look especially great when you put your special touch on it! The sleigh bed and frame…winners!!

    Oh, good for you! I get so happy seeing your treasures!
    Several years ago we were dropping things off at the nearest Goodwill 50 miles away and out by their dumpster was a complete, antique sleigh bed. Gorgeous finish. But we had no way to get it home in our small, stuffed with people, car. I still think about that bed……
    And there must be a regular supply of furniture left at that dumpster, that Goodwill doesn’t take big items, so people just leave their big donations at the dumpster.
    Man, I wish I had a truck and a couple of guys to haul stuff……

      Susie you need to borrow someone’s truck and make another trip to your Goodwill! I definitely cannot find things like that at any Thrift Store here. They think they are Antique stores with prices to match!

    You kill me with the incredible-cOOl stuff you find in and about your dumpsters. . .
    -I want that dresser-

  6. you lucked out again! I had a furniture fairy drop off a twin bed and a huge piece of tempered glass the other day on my front porch. My suffering husband said, “Really?!?!?, now we have people delivering their junk to you???” I found out it was a woman I work with and it was a great bed!

    You CAN decorate with trash!

    fill the open area of the frame with screen or chicken wire (I used screen) & hang your French hook earrings & made little hooks from wire to hang hoops & other jewelry from.
