I could think of better things to do in the month of August than clean out my garage.
This is normal. Old timers might say; “awh heck! that ain’t noth’n, why back in…”
For real the hottest summer in Texas was last year. So this looks like a cool front!
Back to my initial statement; “why clean out the garage now?”
Probably because of the World’s Longest Yard Sale going on this weekend and I would love to be one of those yards.
Maybe they will eventually snake over to the west. Wouldn’t that be a blast to be a part of that?
But the real reason is because when the mood strikes, you get on it before it leaves.
So I pushed my way in, way back into the farthest corner and began moving junk and uncovering the good stuff.
In fact it was so hidden, my kids kept asking me; “where did that come from?”
Now you know….I am a hoarder of junk. Shocking!
Want to know what I found?
a rattan scroll screen, which was sold yesterday when I plastered all of this treasure hunt all over my facebook page. Riley and I will be hand delivering this to it’s new owner on our way out of town next Monday.
One of my favorite perks about blogging and selling my products, is meeting my customers and friends from my blog and facebook friends.
I think they would look awesome painted turquoise and made into a daybed…or not.
That’s just it, I don’t want to do anything with them, so they gotta go.
See I’m even offering suggestions on what to do with it!
And are you ready for this…
an ironing board!
I don’t want it…
but guess what else?
there are a lot of really awesome things one could do with this, two ideas come to mind immediately…
Donna at Funky Junk Interiors used hers for a light on her fabulous desk made out of pallets.
If you haven’t seen it I would be shocked, but you can see it by going HERE.
I’m pretty sure there are a ton of ideas for vintage wooden ironing boards out there in bloggy land and on Pinterest.
That is just a bit of what I dug out. Sad to say there is so much more. But what I’ve shared with you here is good junk, the other stuff is crap and that just gets taken to the curb…and who knows, maybe somebody will love it more than me.
That’s called the “circle of JUNK” or would that be the “cycle of JUNK”
So if you live near Dallas/Ft.Worth and you see something you can live without, send me a message.
This is all going on Craig’s list and hopefully into the loving homes.
