If you are a regular at Trashy Tuesday, then you may have noticed a peculiarity. Sometimes my Junk has a theme! This week, it was all about chairs. FREE CHAIRS. And you know, FREE is my love language.
I have said it before, it is worth repeating. When you need something, think about it constantly. Eventually it will show up in a Dumpster, on the Side Walk, or your friend will call and give it to you. You can read all about how to manifest a bunch of junk into your life HERE, “If You Think It You Will Find It. This isn’t just a bunch of rubbish. It works!
Case in point. We are having a graduation party here in less than 2 weeks. We needed more out door seating, STAT. Problem, patio furniture is expensive. When you are used to getting things for free for your furniture needs, paying for something can be painful. I have decorated my entire yard on zero budget (and much of my house too). Check out my Patio Made of Junk HERE.
Saturday, got a text from a friend in my Junk Network. Her friend had 4 free chairs, HURRY! No adress was given! In a panic, I scanned the picture. With my highly developed powers of junk detection, I was quickly able to hone in and locate exactly where the chairs were. I am like a divining rod when it comes to good junk. Just put something out of the curb, throw a FREE sign on it, and I will find it.
Sunday, got a text from a friend who is moving two states away. They have lived on the water for the past few years and were ready to leave their California lifestyle. Would I like some free chairs? Yes please! My generous friend gave me four VERY nice patio chairs/rockers. (just ordered cushions for them)
And! 2 Nice wood chairs that would definitely benefit from some of my favorite CeCe Caldwell’s Paints.
If that isn’t enough junk for you, I found this in a Dumpster a couple of years ago. Finally got around to removing all the 1970’s era stickers. Smiley Face anyone?
That’s it for this week’s Trashy Tuesday. Hope you find a chair to sit in. If not, come over to my junk pile, I have got a seat for you. I hope you have the trashiest, junk filled week. Speaking of Trash and upcycling….Congratulations to Ashley Cronin! Winner of the Upcycled Barn Wood Coat Rack from Micano Home and Garden! See, I have so much junk around here I have even recruited my friends to join in.
