Trashy Tuesday MidCentury Madness and Market CartsThere are trashy weeks, and then there are really, really trashy weeks. This past week was a really, really trashy week. I mean this in the best use of the word “trashy”.
Interesting fact: Your garbage can when pulled to the curb is considered public property. If I might be driving by and see something of interest sticking out of it, I am completely within my legal rights to pull it out and take it. And this past week, that is just what I did with this Market Cart!!
Not sure what they were using it for before with the funny rags and PVC pipe tied on, but I am in love with the chippy Patina. It is in solid condition too! How is that for some good garbage?
I see a mixture of CeCe Caldwell’s 100% Natural Chalk + Clay Based Paints in Spring Hill Green and Emerald Isle. Some all natural CeCe Caldwell’s stain in Savannah Prailine to tone down the color and then some dabs of CeCe Caldwell’s 100% Natural Metallic waxes in El Dorado Gold and Bingham Copper. Wouldn’t that be cool? Now I need to find a source for those metal boxes too…..
Someone had a wall papering party with this, it was covering the top too, but I couldn’t resist the urge to pull it off as it peeled back in long strips. You could definitely say this dresser was outstanding in its field. Or maybe it was an Outlier…..Malcolm Gladwell reference here, outstanding book if you haven’t read it. Hello, 10,000 hours? I have spent this on Dumpster Diving and Trash Picking. That would make me an expert according to Malcolm Gladwell’s book and current expert research….
Running out of time to finish this post! Good thing I found this super sized clock next to a Dumpster. Really, people don’t even have time to properly heave-ho their trash into the Dumpsters these days. PS That lamp shade was found in the trash this week too.
