    What a great pile of junk…………………….. treasures for repurposing.
    Girl, you need to go back and get them sewing tables. Yes the wood is beyond repair but remove all that old wood and save the bottom to repaint and put a whole new top on it. A friend done one for me and repainted the iron petal etc. all black and put a cedar top on it and I use it as a bedside table stand. It is absolutely gorgeous.
    If I had been there I would had snapped them up in a heart beat.
    All and all tho you done pretty darn good

  2. Wow, what a haul, your husband must be a sweetheart! I love the old doorknobs, the wooden boxes, frames, fencing and of course the chair parts! I really can’t believe you got all of the in your van either. I would’ve been right there digging alongside you as well. I’m sure you’ll think of something awesome to make with each one of your junky finds!

    WOWZA! You weren’t kidding about the chairs! Nice! I think I would have had to have that sewing machine base though. I just adore those! A great haul for you, Karen. I bet you could have made two or three trips, huh ? What great friends to have.

    Wow! Lucky duck! All that wood, in all its forms. Awesome. I really really like the clip boards. You could add a bunch of 8×10 pictures or make a home for all of the keys tho clip onto; our a place tho keep children’s artwork, adding the next creation on top. Gorgeous doorknobs too!

  5. Oh, how much rubbish! I think this is too much when the yard is littered with things that in theory may be needed

    I love it. Just my type of trashure. Our garage is so full that there is no room for the car so I really need to start chipping away at my collection. It’s so sad when things are just left outside to rot when they could be given a new life by someone like yourself. I see so many things rusting away to nothing, but the owners won’t part with them.

    Great stuff-looks like you need some of my stash to complement your pickings! I would be more than happy to bring you some. Or better yet, you could bring your vehicle and fill it up from mine, as it looks like you’re “back in the saddle again”… Let me know, anytime! Judy Montague

  8. […] AND they happen to have bought a ranch that had a ton of Old Furniture and JUNK on it.   When they first moved in, they did an initial junk purge and I ended up with a ton of stuff.  In fact, look at how packed my van was!  […]
