Welcome to Trashy Tuesday, and oo la la, are we talking Trash today, but only the best kind of trash!
I have been trying to curb my junque addiction. It is getting pretty warm here in the SF Bay Area, and I really would like my car to live in the garage this summer. It is not just a dream, it can sometimes be a reality! Remember this?
I have managed to stay (mostly) on task with the system Emma helped me set up.
But the Junque just follows me home sometimes! It literally leaps into my car (well not exactly). This last week I went out for my ONCE a week hunt. (See how much better I am???). I found the Grand Daddy of awesome Dumpster Furniture Dives. I did not have to even make contact with a Dumpster. This was sitting next to one, all parts were intact, even some hardware!
The top and the drawers need a bit of work, but the desk is SOLID wood. The drawers are Dove Tail construction. Sacre Blu! Who could pass this up?
School is out for summer here. On a drive one morning, this locker was just sitting on the curb! It is smallish, not as cool as it cousins, the “heavy metal types”. Some paint, some new hardware. It can hang out in my garage for extra storage.
I am so excited about my trash finds, I need to sit down. Good thing I found these grimy, but hip retro chairs. I am not sure they have been cleaned since the 60’s, when they were probably made. (Btw, if my friend Dana is reading this, I haven ‘t painted those cute stools you gave me, like two years ago! But I am this week!)
I really could use some more chairs. All the ones I have are in complete disrepair, or holding a lot of other stuff….
In case you are wondering, there are 6 cane back chairs in there with pads that I purchased for $5 each! The two orange chairs are Dumpster Finds from last year. I paid Mr. Red good money to start pulling the fabric off and staples out. He has a problem with finishing tasks. Cannot imagine where he gets this trait……
Excusez-moi, I have some Junque to attend to.
