Trashy Tuesday Free Stuff
Who doesn’t LOVE free stuff? I do, as long as it is good Free Stuff. The last week was filled with Free Stuff coming my way. Most of it pretty darn good.
Suffering Husband’s Partner was going to give these solid Oak chairs away, but donated them to my cause instead. (The cause of filling up my garage with other people’s old things and Dumpster Diving Finds, feel free to donate).
(and by the way, that chair is sitting next to my Bench Made Entirely of Junk!)
We also got a Free Swiveling Bar Stool!
A while back I did a Hometalk Live segment on Hometalk Facebook. I made an entire mudroom out of an old door and a dresser cut down. Everything was 100% upcycled.
And! Last week I had 5 minutes to actually paint something. I painted this Free To Me table in DIY Paints Bead Board, the base is in DIY Paints in Weathered Wood as are the polka dots. It isn’t finished yet, will share the beauty shots when I get there….
Sometimes you better be careful what you wish for. I wished I could find more things to paint (sort of, I just think about it, and POOF, it arrives). I think I have honed this strange skill from years of Dumpster Diving.
I also wished for HUGE success with my new adventure with 100# Natural Clay Based DIY Paints as their retail director. Can I just say, I LOVE what I am doing? Working with one of my dearest friends, Debi Beard, owner and founder of DIY Paints is like working with the perfect other half of my brain. I think I over wished! We are growing like gang busters. New retailers and new applications, and paint flying out the door. It is so much fun getting to know retailers across the U.S. and becoming inspired by their never ending creativity and amazing business ideas. It has been so rewarding to see new people trying our paint and retailers beyond excited because DIY paint is selling so well.
However, it leaves me with a little less time to paint. Life is always a balancing act, and there are always seasons. Tis the season for my Garage to Runneth Over and for my heart to runneth over with joy from all the amazing people I have had the opportunity to work with and who are discovering 100% Natural Clay Based DIY Paint every day. There is so much good Mojo going around here, I do feel like every day is full of FREE STUFF full of treasures of people, opportunities and joy (and even some junk mixed in).

In the meantime, hope you have the Trashiest week and find plenty of your own good Free Stuff.
That’s all my Junk for today.
