Trashy Tuesday Diary of a Dumpster Diver
Every Monday morning I can hardly wait to get my kids to school so I can go Dumpster Diving. The diving seems to be especially wonderful Monday morning. People have moved, cleaned out their unwanted junk, or just threw out something because it was slightly damaged.
Then every Tuesday I must share with the world at Trashy Tuesday what treasures I found.
I need to buy two twin beds for twins. They both seem to need the same things at the same time, even though they are 12! Diary, it is amazing, if I think about what I need for a few weeks, I always seem to find what I need in or around a Dumpster.
Guess what Diary!? I have wanted/needed a small stool for my workshop for some time now. Diary, I am a cheap Dumpster Diver and I don’t like spending money on things I think I can find. Today I found the perfect sized stool. Oh diary, I truly had to Dive into a Dumpster for this one.
Oh Diary, the top is not in good shape on my Dumpster Dove stool. I am in LOVE with the new CeCe Caldwell’s Stains. Once I get it cleaned up, one of them will look gorgeous on this stool.
I also found this funky little stool/side work bench thingy? It was tucked in a corner near the Dumpster I frequent. Maybe someone was saving it for later, but couldn’t pick it up just then. Diary, you have to get up Early in the Morning to find the good Junk!
Diary, last week I told you I found this awesome shelving/cabinet unit behind Target through my Junk Network.
I was so excited to start work on it. Diary, you won’t believe what I did. I used the bottoms of big Drawers I found in a Dumpster a while ago. Turned them over and spray painted them with Chalkboard Paint. Then Diary, I cut down the drawer fronts and placed them in between the gap where the drawer fronts didn’t cover. Diary, I can’t wait to finish this project. I know exactly what color of my favorite CeCe Caldwell’s Paints I am going to use to.
Diary, the Dumpster has been so good to me. Thank you for letting me share all my dirty Dumpster Diving secrets here at Trashy Tuesday.
