Junky Monday Roundup

Welcome to Junky Monday Roundup. Here is where I dish on the best junky finds after a trip to my favorite shopping place. The curb. One man’s trash is this chic’s treasure and I’m bringing it to you every week. Stick around until Transformation Tuesday to see how I glam the stuff up.

This past weekend was Easter.  The whole family was off for a nice long weekend and we took complete advantage!  We hit Texas Antique Week in Warrenton which was a bust.  It took five hours as opposed to one and a half to get there.  We got stuck in the traffic coming and going from the big shows like Marburger Farm.  Personally, my favorite spot is around Zapp Hall which took almost three hours in stand still traffic to get there.  When we did finally make it, we had a little over an hour to shop before sundown.  Boo.

We strolled, ate, and enjoyed ourselves anyway.  There were a few places open after dark and I scored one of the items on my short list.  These cute little eggs baskets.  I thought they made lovely Easter baskets, but the kids protested saying they were much too small.  Suits me just fine.  I get to selfishly find something to use them for and I’m ok with that.antique week baskets ohmygluestick.comWe had contemplated finding a place to stay around Warrenton and hitting the scene early the next day, but I was done and didn’t want to waste an entire weekend in our vehicles.  Especially, since we took the van and the truck just in case we hit it big with the loot.

Salvage Warehouse ohmygluestick.comWe drove back home and hit our local architectural salvage spot early the next morning.  That place is a gold mine for all things window, door, reclaimed wood, shutters, fixtures, and pretty much anything else you can salvage from a home before it’s demolished.  I was a kid in a candy store.

Cupcake could have cared less. Look at that face.

Salvaged barn door ohmygluestick.comHubbs and I fell in love with this reclaimed barn door, but left it there, but sadly left it there.  We have no place to hang it right now.

Watching cranes and trains ohmygluestick.comA train rolled by every ten minutes and in the back of the warehouse was some real life salvage and scrap action going on, so the kids were more than entertained and felt right at home taking a prime seat to enjoy the free show.

I found the cutest little mirror for Princess’ room the minute I walked in.  I also couldn’t live without a pair of hanging metal and glass lanterns and an iron planter/sconce that Princess and I agreed will make a great outdoor chandelier with lights.

Dumpster Diving Junky Monday ohmygluestick.com

After, we headed to the Betz Art gallery which was closed, but their dumpster wasn’t!  We found a few goodies and were on our way to the next spot.

Wingback Chairs Junky Monday ohmygluestick.comBetween Houston and my ‘hood, the junk really flowed again this week.  I found a pair of gorgeous wingback chairs, but still haven’t recovered the one I snagged months and months ago, so Hubbs put the kibosh on them not that I can blame him.

Junky Monday Roundup ohmygluestick.comHere’s the junk we drug home.  The good and free stuff.  Just like I like it.

Wooden Chair Junky Monday ohmygluestick.com1. Wooden Chair:  This guy was pulled out of a dumpster by my smoking hot Hubbs.  He was determined to get it down for me and that made him even hotter in my eyes.  It needs some TLC, but I love a good project.Old Wooden Door Frame Junky Monday ohmhygluestick.com

2.  Wooden Screen Door Frame:  I LOVE this little find.  I love the shape, the color, and the fact that it’s wood.  Such a great little piece to upcycle into about a million things.Junky Monday dollhouse ohmygluestick.com

3.  Dollhouse:  Not that we need another dollhouse, but Soyjoy gets so excited at the sight of one.  I wonder where he gets it.  I drug it home and will let him play out on the deck with it until it’s no longer fun.  It’s cracked plastic and covered in child graffiti.  Eek.Cabinet Doors Junky Monday ohmygluestick.com

4.  Cabinet Doors:  These are a great size and I love the hardware.  Such versatile pieces and in great shape.  Endless possibilities.Fan Junky Monday ohmygluestick.com

5.  Ceiling Fan:  I grabbed this for parts.  I want to make a cool garden sculpture with the kids out of the blades and those glass fixtures would make great votives for the deck.Chest Junky Monday ohmygluestick.com

6.  Brass Trunk:  We pulled this from a pile next to a dumpster while on our adventures this weekend.  It needs paint, but otherwise is in good shape.Fire pit Junky Monday ohmygluestick.com

7.  Fire Pit:  Again, this was pulled for parts.  Not sure where to go yet, but the wheels are already turning.

That’s it for this week’s roundup.  It just goes to show, one man’s trash, is this chic’s treasure and today I am a rich girl.
