Someone was remodeling a building in my sweet friend Lora's neighborhood. She snooped in the dumpster and
And so in her trunk it went, then into mine!
This may look like trash to some...
Sure, it's not pristine, and it's weird shaped. It probably was just used to store tools or something. But I really dig the shape and color for some reason. Plus, it kind of reminded me of a rougher version of the Garrity Modular Cubby from good old Pottery Barn:
Maybe the PB Cubby's ugly step cousin?
Don't get upset with his replacement. I think you will approve. I replaced the bun with booze.
Although I really love my $25 estate sale china cabinet. It's not as tall as I would like. Someday I plan to replace her with the perfect estate sale find. Or if I can talk Adam into it, a DIY build.
This new salvaged wine cubby brings a little height to the cabinet, and doubles as storage.
I added old books from sales and thrift stores, a little chalkboard frame, and the wine. Needs more wine I think. Never enough wine.
In the top corner I added my collection of driftwood I picked up on the beach at Gulf Shores this year. I decided on driftwood instead of seashells this beach vacation! Something different.
This mint pitcher was my Great Aunt Katie's. The little blue jar was in a mystery box of stuff from an estate auction.
I think the weathered look on the side is my favorite part! The piece also looked good turned the other side for a different look. I may try that for a change sometime.
Would you add something on top or will it look to cluttered?
Are you a dumpster diver?
Anyone else find something you just LOVE in someone else's trash?
