I hope you are having a fabulously Trashy week. Thanks for stopping by here to totally talk trash with me. No, NOT that kind of trash! We keep things positive around here. And I am positively excited about the trash I found this week. And!!!! A sneak peek of my new workspace. I will share the whole thing Thursday, you will be awed and amazed!
First up, another ironing board. You may be wondering why, but I will straighten this out for you. I love the idea of making a memo board out of an old ironing board, it comes with a cool frame, a great way to hang it, and a unique shape!
On a recent business park dumpster dive, I found all of these heavy duty parts to a desk. They were all pretty solid, and I can always use solid tops for many of my frankenfurniture creations. These are perfect.
While Emma and I completely cleaned and organized the garage, we took pictures of just about every single piece of furniture I have. When I get back from my trip, my next task will be creating a new furniture cue. I had done this last year and managed to get through most of it. Wish me luck, this part is hard. They all want to be the star of the next sale!
Impressive huh? There are few more headboards, doors and misc. items we didn’t quite get to yet. I can tell you that out of all of these photos, I probably only paid for three things. THREE THINGS!!! With a total of about $50. Everything else was either found in or around a dumpster, the side of the road, or was given to me. The only cost I had to collecting all these items was a about an 45 minutes per week and some gas. Truly, if you are wanting to cut back on the endless garage sales hunts, thrift store hunts, etc. You can pretty much find whatever it is you are looking for.

And….as promised, here is my sneak peek for my garage!!!! And by the way, my new work bench, the top on it, the shelves, etc. were all dumpster finds. All of it!
