I Love Bulk Trash

This weekend was bulk trash pick up in our neighborhood.  A friend of mine once told me that she rents a truck and prowls the fancy Dallas neighborhoods during bulk trash weekend.  I've heard of people scoring entire Restoration Hardware patio sets, beautiful Midcentry sofas in mint condition, pairs of Victorian wingback chairs, lucite console tables and more!

This weekend I scored two wooden rocking chairs from the bulk trash.  They needed a paint job, some new screws and a little wood glue.  I also found a door with little square windows.  It was damaged around the edges, but not so badly that it couldn't be repurposed.  I painted the name of our home on the glass panes and hung it from some rings and an "S" hook.  The weight of the door (this mother is heavy!) rests on the ground and the hooks keep it upright.  So, thank you bulk trash for the free spring update!

There's... ...no snow or ice. There are flowers... ... no howling north wind...

Nice scores, too. Congrats. I love garbage day, too.

Never knew such a thing existed, but now I'm so jealous of bulk trash day!

We are kindred spirits.. 90% of my backyard furnishings are from bulk trash! I am a sucker for broken flower pots, old chairs, scrap fence boards, and crates!
