Trashy Tuesday Dumpster Diving Delights
Welcome to Trashy Tuesday! There are lots of Dumpster Diving delights to be found here. I have so much good trash to share with you. Where to begin?
I am a trash magnet. Can I help it if I drive down the street and my eyes immediately zero in on anything Free left by someone who moved, had a garage sale, or just did a deep clean? Sometimes I think people things put FREE stuff out, just for me.
These past few weeks I have been amassing frames. Frames! Large and Small. On a recent shopping expedition in a Dumpster behind a large home decor store that shall remain anonymous, I found all kinds of frames, a candle holder and some misc stuff.
Some of the frames will be turned into nice painted with CeCe Caldwell’s 100% Chalk and Clay Based Frames, some will be cut up and used for trim when I do a new CeCe Caldwell’s retailer training. Which, by the way I have coming up next week with an adorable shop called Jimmy Girl in Santa Rosa, CA.
I found a nice Candle holder on that same shopping expedition. Still deciding which CeCe Caldwell’s Color to paint it. Suggestions?
I also found the most amazing Moldings. BEHIND a Dumpster, right by another favorite retailer of mine, here in my hometown of Brentwood, CA. Big Al’s Heavy Metal Furniture. Al and I actually met several years ago when I would frequent the Dumpster in his mixed use industrial strip. If there was anything too heavy to load in the car, Al would help, or help himself to the good junk before I got there too!
Yesterday was one of those “this was meant for me” moments when Dumpster Diving. At one of my favorite Apartment Dumpster’s, read all about that here in my Dumpster Diving Series. I found this! Hung up on the wall of the Dumpster cage. Just waiting to greet me. Sweet huh?
Sometimes Trashy Tuesday and Dumpster Diving goes in trends. Trending right now? Chairs! Stay tuned, next week I will share all the chairs that have suddenly made their way to my house. Free to me’s, garage sale left overs and just today, left behind after someone moved. Score!
