You’ve read about the new shed. You’ve seen my old shed—being demolished. (more on this later)
You’ve seen pictures of my barn. What you haven’t seen is what’s in my barn. It is a Junker's delight inside that old barn. I kid you not. It’s full of junk. But, Don’t you judge me. My garage is like most American Garages in homes all across this great country. Full of junk.
It’s a W.I.P (work in progress) or more like W.I.P. (waiting in pile)
I like to call it my resource pile—encapsulated in an heritage styled 100 + year old storage unit.
Shamefully, there isn’t just junk inside there. There is perfectly useable, quality junk! The shameful part? There is one heirloom inside there. Do you want to see what’s in my barn?
Come along and I’ll show you what has been left and forgotten over the years.
~ Glass and Wood Atrium Doors (X2)~
~ Great Grandmother’s Old Chair~
(head hanging and lower lip sticking way out)
~Aluminum Lawn chair~
~ More aluminum Lawn Chairs and a Chaise Lounge~
(I know cool right?)
~ Old timey Baby Buggie~
(It came with the barn!)
~ Wood Shelving~
~Rusty Metal Tool Box~
~ Dust…and Old Shutter and something or other on top of it~
(thick for table top)
~ Stainless Steel Shelf and Wire Fabric Mesh ~
~ More shelving, Aluminum Windows, Boxes of knick knacks, Bassinet, Ladder, broken decorative spinning wheel with spindle legs, pile of rain gutter~
There is more.
I will probably show you more--
but, I was thinking the other day. Hold on, Big Confession coming up-
I wanted to go thrift shopping, but was broke. No money in the budget to buy …WHAT?! MORE STUFF!!!
It occurred to me, I was bored. I really hope my kids aren’t reading this for two reasons
- They were never allowed to say that they were bored.
- I DON’T say that I’m bored. Come on you’ve read my blog. I don’t get bored. I can come up with something to do—even if it’s just researching HOW TO DO IT… I don’t get bored.
So, here is the thing. Who needs to shop on the curb, the thrift store or garage sale when you have this type of quality stuff stored , dare I say HOARDED away in the top part of the barn?
So I’m going to get to cracking on some of these items. I’m going to put them to good use. I’m going to make a dent on the quality junk stored in my barn.
I don’t know how long it will go on—but I’m telling you I’m doing it—as accountability. That way I’ll do it. Then I’ll come back here and show you what I’ve done or what else I’ve uncovered. It’ll be fun!
I’LL ALWAYS LINK UP TO cATCH aS cATCH cAN PARTY @ MRL
and I believe staying out of the thrift-stores, away from the curb and garage sales and just plain ol’ shopping in general …this post qualifies me to party with Revi @ Thrifty Life Thursdays too!
Be anxious for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanks giving let your request be made unto to God; And the peace of God which surpasses all comprehension will guard your heart and minds in Christ Jesus. ~~ Philippians 4:6-7
