One woman's trash is another woman's treasure...


No, not really.... it's still trash!
This past Saturday the mister & i headed over to this.... this salvage place. This place has more junk than you can imagine- i wish i would have taken a picture of the grocery cart FULL of the ugliest, scuzziest stuffed animals ever! Nope- nothing old & vintage & ratty looking, just pure grossness! So why were we here?....
Remember we re-did our front entry way? Well, those CHEAP oak doors have GOT TO GO! I want to replace them with vintage doors, & no, I don't want them to match! I'd been to this salvage lot before & knew it was the place to go for doors...
This place is a huge salvage lot that tears down old homes & buildings so they have a lot of everything you can image! This is an entire room full of old tin ceiling tiles... some are a bit rusty...
I wish I had a wide angle lens (or at least i think that's what I would need) to get a picture of this "room", more like an entire building FULL of every kind of door you can imagine. Doors on both sides of the room & this is a HUGE room! Our problem is going to be getting doors that fit! Apparently the mister had NO idea what he was getting into & really didn't have as many measurements as he needed to get the right fit. Geesh, i though you could just grab a door & it would fit... NOPE!
This picture really didn't turn out since i was taking it into light & now I can't delete it... See that box of lights? That was just one of I have no idea how many- they had these lights in every size you can imagine & by the thousands!

shelves of...? JUNK!
And lookie lookie who i found hanging out in the the salvage yard... Jesus! I found him over by the candy bins... Who knew!
toilet anyone?
where's the TP? Look how proud i am on the big-girl potty!! and you may notice I'm wearing my gay man's glasses... I had to get the new ones re-fitted! They fell off every time i looked down.
Well, I will end this post on a crappy note (ba da bing!)...
we got NOTHIN'!
The mister is going to get that tape measure out again, take exact measurements & we'll head back soon! I'll be sure to keep you posted on my door hunt!
Happy Tuesday, I'm headed down to my new love... the treadmill! I've been so good about it & hope to even do some 5K's or more... I love it, I love it, I love it (that's positive self-talk folks!!)
