Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

Today's Thrifty Treasure

Manuela over at The Pleasures of Homemaking blog, which I adore, has a feature called "Thrifty Tresures." called "Today's Thrifty Treasures."

The picture above is one of my "thrifty treasures." My friend Nancy spotted this bottom of a Hoosier cabinet left out for the trash a few weeks ago. I wish I had taken a "before" pic, but I'm always so excited to finish the project that I forget.
We hauled it across the street and up on to my porch. The counter top was gone, you you looked directly into the drawers. It was paint splattered and had some "plastic wood" repairs. Two cans of white spray paint later, I think it looks pretty good!

Oh! That looks SO great!

People in my town seem to be discarding plaid recliners at the side of the road. Blocks and blocks of only old wet plaid recliners.

One must remain hopeful that SOMEDAY a treasure will appear...

You certainly found one!

Judy and Debra:

Kudo's go to my friend Nancy, the trashed treaure magnet who was with me. No plaid recliners for her! All she has to do is THINK about a treasure needed and it appears!
