~New JUNK... Some came from the Curb!~

Well... I had to come back and add this Old Chicken wire Cupboard to the blog before I start with the Saturday Junk Finds. Me and my hubby just got this done up tonight. I am tickled with how it has turned out. I got this from one of my girlfriends on a trade. It was minus a broken door which has now been fixed. Chicken wire in place of the busted out glass and lastly a Heavy Iron brown gate pull. Just a coat of stain is needed and it is ready to go to the Sleepy Poet FOR SALE!!!
Now back to the Junk....Saturday was here and the Junk was GOOOOD!! This Creamy White crazed Pitcher and Water bowl is my LOVE of the day! I just wish you could see the colors and the little cracks!!

I came across this old framed print, dated Fall 1890, I don't have a clue about it but I got it, it's a cutie!

Here is the load all together looking oh so pretty!! 1st stop of the day was at one of my favorite junk shops, shhh I will never tell!! Then it was onto Yard Sales, Thrift Stores and last but not least The Side of the Road!! The road side trash side pick ups made the trip worth wild!!

Oh how we love our JUNK!

Little Barbers Cabinet, I really liked the colors. Neat glass over wood top, just gotta get some glass knobs and it will be complete, oh yeah maybe a little wash job!
Stairway, Open Room , Weave Room anyone??? Little metal signs I just love them! Old wood tool box and spice cabinet looking like some good makeover candidates.

I will tell you the stuff I found that people put out for trash today about sent me into excitement overload..... Old Screen Door- TRASH, Two Chippy Old Windows-TRASH, what is the world thinking?? That old screen door really got me excited... all I could think was, "We'll I gotta get this." I was so excited, I know I even said that out loud, I guess to confirm it to myself. And I had to fit all 8 feet of it into my Murrano.... it was going in the car one way or the other....it went from the front windshield to the rear glass, it slapped the side of my face the entire trip home. But I got it home and that's all that matters. The stuff I left behind there would make your mouth water!!

Oh yeah this was another freebie waiting right on the curb, Old concrete Cherub two piece old chippy planter..... LOVE... heavy as sin. How could someone trash such a treasure??
Scraps... I found alot of them today, including this little two drawer cabinet, which I dropped the name plates in, a little more work and it will be done!

Ms Concrete Shabby Head, loved her too!

Thanks for taking a look at my New Fresh Junk, for more peeks of todays goods head on over to my other Junkin Sale blog . There are a few more pieces of eye candy over there too. Now, I gotta get to work on tweaking some of my finds. Blessings for a great Junkin weekend! I can't wait to see all the finds from all you Junkers weekend hunts!! I am waiting for all the posts to begin!!

Gretchen said...

Great finds and fun blog posts to read. Especially enjoyed the one about your husband going junking with you. I have a dh that "doesn't get it", and I'm not sure he ever will. As long as he sees the stuff leaving the house, but doesn't see the stuff coming back in, he's good to go. lol
Thanks for visiting my blog and your sweet comment.

Janna, I love all of your finds! I think I might have to travel on down the road to a neighboring country town on their trash day to see this type of stuff! Would be worth the time, that's for sure.
