Dumpster Dive to Delightful!


Recycle, refresh, renew! With a bit of vision, some soap and water, paint and a yard of new fabric ... you can turn what appears to be trash ...



Into a treasure!!



Let your creativity carry you away on your next project. That's what happened at Ash Tree Cottage. Now let's go visit the other Susan at Between Naps on The Porch this Metamorphosis Monday for more amazing transformations!!

Oh Bentley, I don't know if we can fix your old fire truck. It may well be beyond repair. Maybe we can find you a new one!!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

  11. Hi Susan, your handiwork is just fantastic!!! I am so motivated now to go out to the garage and paint that glider I bought a few weeks ago for $10. All it needs is a coat of paint and a few comfy pillows. Thanks for stopping by my steamed clam blog post and leaving a comment - I really appreciate it!! Ciao, bella!

  17. Construction dumpsters are the big trash bins used to put things like sheetrock, wood, or just general trash when you have too much of it. Construction Companies are most likely to use these dumpsters. dumpsters
