Trashy Tuesday Another Day at the Office Dumpster 

Happy  Trashy Tuesday! Hope your week is off to a good start.  My week is just another day at the Office Dumpster, so to speak….

I found an old Stereo Cabinet on someone’s driveway and got to work right away (not) making it over.  I had hoped to have it ready for its debut this week.

Again, NOT.  Here is a sneak peek, if you don’t follow me on Instagram, @redouxinteriors, you should!  I have more sneak peeks and more in depth looks at my trashy life there. 

What I can share with you is some of the most awesome stuff I found this week!  And mostly, I didn’t even have to go looking for it.

Actually, it all came from one place. Or from one driveway I should say.

There I was, minding my own business, driving home from the gym, doing my usual “scan both sides of the road Saturday in case there is anything free”…..and I saw this!

At first I thought it was a bust, maybe 1 or 2 picture frames, but as I dug deeper, I discovered the jack pot of old picture frames.  

Most of these will look just lovely with a new coat of paint.  I did a little searching for ideas of what to do with old picture frames and I found this awesome post by Saved By Scottie that features 50 ideas of what to do with old picture frames.  

And trust me, at this point.  I have at least 50 old picture frames in my stash.

I also found this very unique, shall I say, Blanket?  How cool would this be as a new lamp shade, or some other unique wall decor for a teen?  

And last but not least, who turns their nose up at free sand paper, pliers and a pair of scissors!  Not me!

That wraps up this week’s Trashy Tuesday.  I hope you have the trashiest week filled with all kinds of good junk.  As for me?  It will just be another day at the Office Dumpster.

    Kool, Karen! Hey… can I see Instagram from a laptop? Can you tell me what I need to do ? I don’t have a smart phone to do things with, so no tweeting from this junker!
