Junking in Orange County?


When I read some of my favorite blogs I'm always envious that they have places to go junking (scavenging junk yards, rickety barns, or old farm houses). I want to be a picker...I want to find a diamond in the rough. But I guess that's the upside of living in the midwest and east coast.

So imagine my surprise (and excitement) at a local army surplus store by my home where I picked up these rusty beauties at a bargain price. They were just outside behind the store being neglected.

In any case don't be afraid to ask the store owner if he or she is selling the things outside or at the back of the store. Most likely they think no one would ever want that junk. 

So yes! I did my own kind of junking in Orange County and I sure hope it's not the last. I can't wait to upcycle my pieces. In do time...patience is a virtue, my friend. As for now I will admire them in my garage. 

I'm thinking these industrial bread pans will be great to organize my make-up (as soon as I build a make-up station in my bedroom) or mounted on the wall as a shadow box display.

The large ammo box will be a toy bin/foot stool in the living room.
