Me & My House is hosting a cool junk party so that everyone can share their junk. Here are a few of my favorite pieces.
The lady I bought this from won a bet with her husband. He bet her $20, which is more than I paid for it, that no one would buy it. He said and I quote, "That is pure junk." Little did he know, that's exactly what I was looking for. Here is my chicken coop that I use to hold my cookbooks.
I can't tell you how many times my dad has offered to throw this piece of junk away for me. I moved several times withing a few years, and every single time he'd offer to haul this to the trash for me. Little does he know. It's my favorite piece of furniture that I own. I've managed to keep him from throwing it away for about nine years now.
I have several pieces of "junk" in my bathroom. My bathtub was originally in my grandparents yard with cactus growing in and around it. I found chair at a yardsale. The shutters I found somewhere.
And last but not least,meet Miyagi, my authentic junkyard cat. I work at a "junkyard," or used auto parts shop, and we have lots of junkyard cats. They are always very very wild. When Miyagi was a kitten he came up to the backdoor of our shop and just stayed there. Being a softy, I took him home, and he's ruled the house ever since.
