I have a friend like that too. They are the best. That door looks awesome.
yeah, I have a friend like that too! The door is an awesome find.
I don't mind going through garbage in other neighborhoods… currently there are some awesome wood pieces in my neighbors trash. I think I'll check it out after dark. 😉
I love that, I need a buddy like that! My sister would but she is in California and I am in Iowa! No such luck! I can dream though!
That door was worth rescuing!
how fun 🙂 it would be totally worth it to find great treasures 😉 Now I just need to find a friend who would do that for me…I mean WITH me 😉
Girl you know I am all about the dumpster diving. I wish I could find a cute door like that. The other day the foreclosed home next to mine was being cleaned out. So of course I walked over there and asked what they do with the stuff. They said they just throw it away and I could have what I want. There was this entertainment center that needs some serious tlc but girl when it's done watch out. Now I just need to figure out where to put it. I think I am going to turn it into a bookshelf kind of thing.
Man! I need to know how to choose the right dumpster to find something that great! I want to come dumpster diving!
Found your blog a few weeks ago- now you're a daily check for me! My grandfather was the king of dumpster diving- everytime we would visit him he would have a new treasure to show us like a little pedal tractor or golf clubs! Dumper diving is in my blood! You're blog is so cute and full of great ideas- thanks for putting it out there!
Amazing Door!! I am lucky to have a couple friends like that 😀 A few months back I was driving through and doubled back to pull a full set of white plantation shutters in perfect condition and not even dirty out of someones garbage can. I felt wierd but it was SO worth it (well, it will be as soon as I get the lightning bolt inspiration of where to use them!! LOL)
I love it! What's she going to do with it?
For that door, I'd climb in after it too! I'd love to have a partner in crime. If you need a third wheel, I'm available! Camille 🙂
This made me laugh out loud! I just "saved" two solid wood patio chairs (from the 70's) during our city wide cleanup week. I don't have a van or truck, so I hauled them home on my bike rack, one at a time!!!
I just told my husband that they were free, but not where they came from! And I wanted to hide them also, but they were too big!
Good for you to "recycle" stuff!
I totally would have jumped in for that. I have plans to make a headboard out of an old door just like that one. Now just convincing my hubby to help.
That door is absolutely beautiful! I would've gladdy dived (dove/diven haha jk) into that dumpster for that. those doors are a hot commodity and don't usually come cheap let alone free in a dumpster! Good friend indeed!
