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.
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.
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.
