If you follow me on instagram..
You have an idea of what I have been up to lately.
Oh.. just a typical Sunday cutting grass watching your neighbor throw out a bedroom set.
WAIT. STOP THE BUS!!!
I tried not to look.
Focus Susie Focus..
I made it through finishing the yard, cooking supper and climbing into bed.
I thought I could just put it out of my mind.
Did I really need someones thrown out "loved on" furniture?
Did I really need to add another project to my list?
It's 9:30 and wayyy to late to call my neighbor anyway.
I know she's my good friend and would just laugh and let me have it if I asked.
Ughhhhh just call her already!!!
She laughed and graciously said yes!
I thanked her and tried to get some sleep that night.
Of course it started storming that night and there was no way my husband would make a furniture pick up at 3 am.. even if it was just across the street. nope. didn't happen. the nerve of him. LOL
As soon as the school bus passed and I was " in the clear " not to embarrass the socks off my child,
I made my move!
Still raining, I slipped on my rubber boots and headed next door.
Funny how someones trash can rock your world....LOL.
Although much loved by two young boys,
the headboard and dresser were solid wood and made well.
After a some wood glue fun and hole filling...
I knew just the color for the headboard.
Valspar's "Cool Pool"
And of course the new bed needed a new sign!
I wanted something retro and fun!
I played around and mixed some colors together for the sign.
I wanted it to play well with the bed but not too matchy matchy..you know
(If you are interested in this sign, email me. I would be happy to paint another)
I found the cute spread on sale at Target.
I'm playing around with some ideas for the dresser.
As of right now, it's plain white.
So that's my trash talk for today.
Do you have any good trashy stories to share?
We would love to hear em ..
