Thrift stores are full of undiscovered treasures but people's garbage can yield some wonderful finds. What some people consider garbage can be perceived by others to be useful artwork. Consider the item below. Someone threw this cabinet away.
My friends husband found this in the garbage. This beautiful little cabinet would have made it's way into a landfill. Instead it has found a home in the corner of their den.
Below is an old umbrella/coat rack that was also found in the garbage. My friend's hubby was kind enough to give it to me!! Thanks Joe!
It's made of solid Oak and has carved pieces on the face. It also has a small box on the front for hidden items....
I have it in a long hallway that joins the garage. It's very handy to have for someone coming through the garage door.
I'm so glad someone thought this was junk, it's a beautiful and functional piece.
I have to admit that I'm a bit shy about pulling in front of someone's house and going through their garbage....ok.....I really won't do that, but if there is something I see and like, I'm stopping.
Here is the problem.......I may be running out of room!
