I LOVE the dump

The other day I had to go to the dump. Who would have thought I would come home with so many treaures. First, when I pulled up, there was a pick up truck loaded with furniture. The majority was wet and moldy looking, but I did spot a couple of things. I asked them if I could have them, and was pleased when the answer was yes.

This will need a bit of work, but for free, who's complaning!!

There was also this totally awesome rusted shabby chic plant stand.

This lonely little chair was hanging off to the side....

The girl who runs the dump knows that I LOVE junk and to paint furniture. She told me she had put a window aside for another girl, but said "first come first serve", and that if I wanted it I could have it. Here is what she showed me...

You can imageine I accepted this ever so graciously!

Now to tackle everything!

Have a great day!


  1. What a haul! I had to look at the first picture for a while but I now see lots of potential and cannot wait to see how you transform it. I love the plant stand and window.

  6. WOW!!!! SO awesome!! I actually have never been to a dump. In fact, I don't even know where one is. Maybe I need to do some research :) I love that plant stand, and the window is dreamy! The other stuff definitely needs some work, but I know you'll make it shine!

  7. Lucky girl! I want all of that too--love the cabinet--who could throw any of these treasures away.
