Trashy Tuesday, Trash Free, but Full of Junque

Happy Trashy Tuesday 2014!!  I hope you all had the trashiest, junque filled holidays.  I slowed up a bit on the Dumpster Diving, but I did find a few goodies.  Mostly after Christmas decor.  Why go buy it when you can find it for free!

Enough holiday talk, let’s trash talk.  I had a spectacular Free To Me week.  I was given these swivel stools from a sweet friend who knows how much I love broken, worn out furniture.  Just think how cute these will be when they receive a total makeover!

I got my hair cut, colored and Pinked today!  Guess what else I received?  This Adorable Tea Cart from my Hairapist, Nancy.  She has had it for a long time and was ready to see it move on.  Another fab makeover on the DIY list…..

And…..this Trashy post would not be complete if I did not do some sort of trash picking.  I scored a bunch of smaller items at a huge garage sale Friday.  The sale went through Saturday, and I knew they would most likely not sell everything.  What did I do?  AGSS.  After Garage Sale Shopping!   I found pillows!   These are great for recovering.

Pillows

This is the best way to score freebies that were passed over.  In the Spring, when Garage Sale season is in high gear, I make it a point to drive around every  Saturday afternoon.  Most weekends I will find at least one good item that no one wanted because they couldn’t see the potential in it.  Like these frames I found last Spring.  I painted and sold every one of those frames.

Frames

As part of my New Years resolutions, I am resolving to be far pickier about what I drag home, and continue to clear out my garage/work space. I hope I can hold strong on my New Years resolution.  Unfortunately, free furniture for me is like a bargain shopper at a discount store when everything is 70% off.  I just gotta have it!

Hope you have a totally Trashy Week.

    I am trying to be a little more picky too! The older I get, the less stuff I want! … But yes, free is pretty hard to turn down!

  3. Hi Karen…. love everything as usual…. lol I’m curious; what do repainted frames go for these days (price)? I picked up a box full but have no idea what to price them for.
