Come Pick My Garage {DIY, Upcycle, Junk Heaven!}

It’s simple. Sometimes you get in over your head. Sometimes you’re in so deep, you can’t breathe. You keep sinking deeper and deeper. It rises to your knees, your thighs, before you know it your in up to your neck!! Welcome to my garage…

Pick My Garage

Yup… no floor! Well, there is one but you sure can’t see it!! This was the point of no return for me.. and a clear sign that it was high time to purge! I love having project pieces that I rescued from here, there, and everywhere, but the truth is, when you have 764 pieces, you have no space to work on the pieces you want to upcycle and wouldn’t be able to find it even if there were room! So today, my dear local DIYers is your lucky day… well, actually Saturday will be… when I invite you to pick my garage!!

    I love the burlap sacks, how much would you be selling them for and would you be interested in shipping them if I paid shipping and handling?

  4. Goodness gracious, woman! You sure know how to treasure hunt. Seriously contemplating a road trip right now…because not only did this post make me hungry for a good garage sale, but for some Candace-time! Miss you, girl!

    • Oh, I miss you too friend!! Only two months to go til our weekend of bloggy bliss! Oh! It’s a thing! Ha ha! And oh how I wish you could truck it up here for the sale… Heck for the weekend!!! We’d have a blast!! Muah!

    Since I can’t come get that dresser I’d love to have the chickens. what do you want for them? I have chickens in my kitchen, have for long time now. Mostly I have lot of ceramic chickens I bought at HL few years ago. They live on top of my kitchen cupboards. Would be so nice to have some wood ones to switch out. Maybe we could do a trade for the runner depending on what you want for them and shipping. Lets see, what else do I want? You’re killing me here girl, showing me this goodness I can’t get to. That dresser is so making my heart pitter patter. I need to move back to KY. Bet your sale cleans you out. Happy weekend
