Trashy Tuesday, The Furniture Pile
Hello, welcome to a longggggg…..overdue edition of Trashy Tuesday. As life happens, life took over my life. But! It did not slow down my Dumpster diving, Trash snooping, Roadkill rescue, junking ways.
I still brake for junk.
I have however, set some serious limits for myself. I have a big garage. BIG. There is room enough for plenty of trash in there, some power tools, some garden equipment and my van. I have a rule that I am proud to say, have kept to for almost a year now.
If my Van does not fit in the garage, and by fit, I mean we have to be able to open the doors and actually get out, then I can’t add anything more to the garage.
Back to that junk. Since I haven’t posted in some time, I thought I wouldn’t do the whole junk furniture pile at once. It might be too overwhelming.
Here are some of the highlights, would love your feed back on what YOU would do with some of this stuff!
How awesome is this wood tote? It has a teeny chip in it, I could touch it up with DIY Paints Dark and Decrepit Patina, which also doubles as a fantastic stain, or I could paint the whole thing in a fun pop of color from 100% Natural DIY Paints. (By the way, have you seen the new website, it’s SO FUN).
Why, why, why do I continue to pick up old crib parts. I just can’t help myself. Found next to a Dumpster a few weeks ago, I actually had to break it apart to get the parts I wanted…..for what exactly, I do not yet know.
And here we are with the crib parts again. I have a thing for spindles. I have loads of spindles. I cannot part with my spindles. I know they will rise to live another life again, but I just haven’t figured out exactly how yet. Here is where you can tell me what you would do with them 🙂
Perhaps we should table this discussion about my junk. Oh whoops. This table is broken and our discussion would just fall right off into another pile of junk. I did manage to save the parts.
And speaking of FREE and Broken Tables. How about this cool little table. Found, where else but in a Dumpster. It needs that hole filled in on the top and some loving make over with DIY Paints, but after a little TLC, it will be as good as new.
And notice there is a theme going here? Those chairs were free too. Found them a few years ago and had them reupholstered. Those are honest to goodness real Danish Antiques that someone THREW AWAY. The piano in this front room was also free. I think we could say my Living Room is very liberating and allows one to feel “free”……
Coffee Table anyone? Don’t set anything down on it, it will fall through those holes. I received a GIGANTIC load of free wood, which I will reveal next week. I am thinking about making planks for those spots and giving it an urban Farm House look.
Thanks for stopping by Trashy Tuesday to see the Furniture Pile.
I hope you share with me what you would do with my junk (besides return it to the Dumpster). Hope you all have the trashiest day.
