A while back I shared this clock face project with Ashley over at 3 Little Greenwoods. Ashley has become one of my blog friends because of our, well, blogs and I think she is incredibly talented. Thank you Ashley for letting me visit!
So today, I want to share with you this fun/quick/inexpensive project that anyone can do. This could be considered an upcycle or maybe even a roadside rescue. One of my favorite pastimes is going through my neighborhood looking for goodies on trash day.
Yes, I am that neighbor. But I think every neighborhood needs one.
I have gotten this reputation honestly.
Wednesday mornings are large-item trash days and instead of just walking those mornings, I go ‘shopping’.
So, yes, I will take the title of neighborhood crazy trash lady.
Mother Earth, you’re welcome.
With this reputation comes perks (beyond saving the Earth). I now have people shopping their neighborhood (or in this case, work) trash for me.
My friend Kristy has a wonderful husband that brings me these old electrical spools that are no longer needed at his workplace. Score one for the trash lady.
So I’m here to challenge you. The next time you see something that still has value sitting in your neighbor’s trash or hanging out by the dumpster at work…GO GET IT!
Mother Earth will thank you.
If you came here for a tutorial for this clock face and are feeling let down, head over to 3 Little Greenwoods for all of the steps. Tell Ashley I sent you!
PS-Don’t forget to cast your vote on the paint colors for my secretary. I’m heading to get paint soon!
