Dumpster Dive!

A few days ago, while on my way to pick up some fabulous end tables I found on Craigslist for $25, I drove by our Walgreens and saw this Ugly Betty sitting in the parking lot by the dumpster.

I covered her as best I could with some of the mattresses that had been dumped with her, hoping no one else would see her while I went to get my end tables.  It worked!

Hubby came to help me load her up, even with his skepticism due the obvious amount of love she's gotten over the years.

She is very rough around the edges, but has a strong, solid frame.

I. Am. So. Excited!

I can't wait for the weather to cool down again so I can get to work on her!

Doesn't get better than free!

Pin It Now!


  1. That's amazing! I wish I had an eye like that.

  2. I can't wait to see the after pics of this! Do you have a color in mind?

  3. I cant decide...I usually always go with the basic colors (black, white, brown, etc.) but since this is kind of a retro type piece, I'm thinking of venturing out and trying more of a vintage type color. What do you think? I'm totally open to all suggestions! :)

  4. Shenan has done like a teal/turqoise with the furniture she's done. Adds a lot of color to her house and doesn't look wierd. She adds accent pillows and stuff in coral and yellow... Makes it so not everything is brown and white. Looks awesome.
