Did you know that Urban Dictionary defines “What The Junk” as the following?
Quite possibly the coolest non-profane exclamation there is.
To know me, is to know that I love Junk and Junk is my love language. So what have I been doing with all my junk? Well that’s a complicated answer….
Back to real life. Our refrigerator broke down and died while we are on vacation. Yippee! It’s covered under warranty. What? You don’t know how to fix it and have to bring in a specialist? WHAT? That specialist isn’t available for a month? We have been living large out of our Garage extra not great fridge and a cooler! I wanted to go pick up a larger cooler at Target, it looks like this may be our life for a while. No need to buy one, I found this Cooler in the Garbage!
Actually I did not take it home with me. I just couldn’t find the energy to scrub and disinfect that grody thing. Instead we bought a mini fridge from Walmart.com!
I did recently find a really nice rolling platform to paint furniture on. It’s long and just about the right width for a dresser, Seriously, it’s PERFECT! I also found another chair, because you can always use more chairs to paint!
So about that old junk. I found this plant like 3 or 4 months ago. I had every intention of digging up the succulent and replanting in some pots of succulents I have outside. That poor thing has been put to the test. It has been baking in my hot garage for at least 90 days now, with no water. I think I decided I am running a scientific experiment to see how long that plant can go without sunlight or water. I think I have pushed it to close the breaking point and probably should give it a new home.
Speaking of plants…..I made 2 really cute planters out of these completely falling apart chairs I got on my huge Junk Dig to my friend’s property last June. I still need to get some beauty pics of them finished, but will share how to do make your own chair planters from chairs that are completely falling apart and should be put in the garbage can.
And do you remember from way back when I found this table all in pieces? You don’t? Well I don’t really remember when I found it either, but I have had it for so long that I am too far in and can’t bring myself to throw it away. It still needs to be put back together again, I already ask All the King’s Horses and All the King’s Men. It’s up to just me now….
Both the bookshelf and the door will become part of my new display where I will be selling my DIY Paint in Brentwood, California! I have had a LOT of requests to bring DIY Local, so who better to sell it than moi! (if you are looking for someone humble, you came to the wrong place). My space and DIY Paint will be at Consignment Envy in Brentwood. You can check them out here. If you live local, it’s by Ace Hardware in Brentwood. Beautiful store, inventory always changing and tons of really neat things to see.
In other news, we are growing like crazy at DIY Paint. My life is a fine tuned, delicate balance of a strict schedule of work. Actually, it’s super crazy, but I love it. This is where you can find me MOST of the time. In my hidey hole home office. When I am not in a Dumpster, or in my garage, most likely I am right here helping out all our new DIY Paint retailers. Interested in finding out how to become a DIY Paint retailer? You can check that out HERE.
If you live in the Bay Area, my space opens up September 1st. I hope you will come out to check it out! Local workshops will soon follow as will special events from time to time.
OH and more piece of Junk! Because I don’t have enough Junk going on around here, I decided to put myself on a 30 Day SUPER DUPER crazy growth FB Business Page plan. I am learning as I am going. Do me a solid, and you if you haven’t LIKE my FB page REDOUX, hop over and like it now. Do you have a FB page you would more likes on? Please leave a link in the comments, then like everyone else’s (if it is the kind of FB page you like).
