Landfill Rescue

I got this "gem" off craigslist last week for free.




Come on now, can't you see the potential?? I can, so that's why I went and picked it in spite of the lister's ringing endorsement "not sure why anyone would want this but I thought I'd put it on here before it went to the landfill." I challenge you to your own "landfill rescue," look at some of your old "junk" and repurpose it for the same or a different use.

I'm actually almost done reworking this beauty and will post it pics once it's hung in it's new place of honor by our front door!

First, loving the new blog design! It looks good. Second... sorry to be so dense... but what is that thing? :)

:) It's a mailbox! They don't do street mailboxes here, they're hung by the front door!

Oh yeah, and THANKS! HTML isn't too bad once you get the hang of it. :)

It's the mail box I helped you find! You should have seen me, I'm looking and looking scrunched up against the computer screen! I couldn't figure out what I was looking at!

Are you going to paint it or leave it the brushed aluminum?

We're going to paint it! No saving the brush aluminum...(rust)... ;)
