A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Dumpster...

So here's the skinny, the topic for this week's Show and Tell Sunday is "Trash to Treasure." You are supposed to feature pictures of things that you have repurposed and made to look fabulous. I have several items that fit into this category, so my post for Sunday will be easy peasy, lemon squeezy...or so I thought! They would like for us to post the "before" shots of our projects too. Great, that narrows my Show and Tell items down to ZIP! I'm terrible at documenting projects. Most of the time I get a wild hair and just jump right in and start slapping primer on things before I even think to take a "before" shot.

So I was kind of disappointed that I would not get to play along this week, until I took the trash out and discovered this cornucopia of treasure. All of this stuff had been discarded in the alley and was ripe for the picking . It was tossed out by the neighbor who I "lovingly" refer to as Mr. Crankenberry, but bless him because he couldn't have chosen a better time to be cleaning.

Just look at that junk!
Now that's what I call Double Grade A garbage!

If you ever saw the kid's game show called Double Dare you might remember that contestants could take the arduous and often messy "Physical Challenge" well that's just what this contestant has decided to do. I have selected one item from the junk pile to beautify and present for Show and Tell. This item has its proper "before" shot, but I only have until Sunday to get the "after" shot.

Can she do it ladies and gentlemen?
Tune in Sunday to find out!
