We’re still having wonderful weather here; the girls are swimming in the pool and having a great time playing with some neighbors. The water is cold for me, so what would be better that sitting under a palm tree watching them play and writing some posts? Well, I can think of several things that could be much better but this is what we have right now, and I’m thankful for all.
Before I show you my post today I want to warn you all there’s an image that could be quite awful and I can understand if you decide to never come back to read my posts.
You’ve been warned.
It was Saturday evening, around 8 pm when I realized I hadn’t gone to the supermarket to buy some things I needed for the next day. I took the van and decided to change my usual route and take another road. And there it was, standing beside the dumpster. I stopped the car, looked right and left, front and back, there was nobody. I opened the rear door and look again around me. Nobody. It seemed it was in a good shape but it was so dark and I didn’t want anyone to see me that I didn’t open the doors. It was really heavy so I cursed just a bit while trying to lift it and put in on the van. Done. A little more looking around me and nobody again, phew!!
Now, can you imagine my husband’s face when I said, “honey, I have something in the car, I need you help” and he saw that inside of the car?
But now you have to imagine MY face when we had the thing in the middle of our living room and I opened the doors.
I had warned you. You have to thank seeing it in a picture, a bad quality & night light picture. Also, while I was in the road trying to get it inside the car I broke the marble, so any thoughts I had about using it disappeared. Now a had a filthy broken thing in my living room with no idea what to do with it, but for sure I was going to do something!
I started to take it all apart, I kept the doors for any future project and the drawers had possibilities too.
When they were all ripped off they were so cute I thought adding some plants inside would be a great idea. I painted them white and add a little transfer at the front. You can read a full tutorial on how to make a transfer.
I really love these crates!! They are worth all the effort to take the monster home with me.
What about you? Do you collect things from the dumpster?
