From Trash to Turquoise Treasure

Pin It!
OK - I'm just going to admit it . . .
I LOVE GARBAGE!
There's a special thrill I get when I see 
value in something someone else threw away.
Here's my latest victim find . . . 
This little baby was destined for the dump!
Travesty!
This is what it looked like when I rescued it . . . 
It had lots of dust, silly string, & holes,
but it was really sturdy!
So whipped out the sander & the wood filler {again}.

{Holes filled in - much better!}

After a spray coat of primer, I used Valspar "Mediterranean" paint.
All it needed was a little love & a good home.
I also made this little "Scrabble" sign for the guest room.
It reminds me of my Uncle Bill - who used to say,
"Good night, sleep tight, 
don't let the bed bugs bite!".
{The tiles are glued on.}

The darling lamp is from "Home Goods" {$29.99}.

Are there any other 
DUMPSTER DIVING DIVAS
out there?  ;D
