Trashy Tuesday One Stop Shopping in a Dumpster
Happy Trashy Tuesday! Did you know your local Dumpster can be as good as a one stop shopping store? Target? Walmart? Dollar Store? They have nothing a good on an overflowing Dumpster.
Just recently I resumed my Dumpster Diving ways after taking a bit of a break. One can actually have too much junk…..Lucky for me, the Dumpsters in my area always being restocked with fresh new junk. Like this very cute, SOLID WOOD bookshelf someone placed right next to one of my favorite dumpsters.
My finds these past few weeks? A plethora of goodness. How about a nice rug? This rug now resides at our Studio/Warehouse at Oui Redoux in Livermore. The complete junk tour will be shown next Trashy Tuesday, so stay tuned!
Taking down a fence? No need to dump all that wood. Just throw it in my van please. I got lucky enough to get a lead on a pile of barn wood this week too.
We are offering DIY classes once a month at Oui Redoux. Tomorrow night we are making Reclaimed Wood Chalkboards using CeCe Caldwell’s paints, CeCe’s 100% natural metallic wax and my free reclaimed wood!
How about some dressers missing drawers. Two of them this week, with a possible third in the works. These are nice solid wood dressers. I can whip up some cute trays and boxes to go in those areas where the drawers used to reside.
Golf anyone? Well sorry, no clubs this time. This can make a nice planter though. Saw some cute pics on Pinterest for ideas.
The information may be a bit dated….
But the facts are still the same. Did you know that the Hatfields and McCoys really was America’s biggest Family Feud, excluding the long standing popularity of the American Game Show with the same name 😉
I also was not aware that Edgar Allen Poe and Charles Dickens actually met in real life. It was fun to read how that meeting went down. Two eccentrics getting together for a chat. Wish I could have listened in on that conversation! Good to know what each of them wore too!
Going out for a night on the town? Don’t forget your little black purse! I thought I mighy gussy it up a bit with some of my favorite CeCe Caldwell’s Metallic Wax!
