Okay, another confusion of dumpster diving is finding AWESOME carpet! The furniture store in town use to put what was stripped out of homes near the dumpster. Well now I don't see that anymore another wonder of Page, Az.
This is period RED SHAG. That was loaded with everything from birdseed to pennies! Literally it was like uncovering a 60's time capsule. Thankfully no hippie bones came falling out :)
It was one odd rectangle, you could tell there was another copy of it that was missing. I spent the cold days before spring, cutting this into two pieces and shampooing it!! yes it did freeze a few nights. But luckily it made it through, next was multiple rakes, vacuums and shakes. Then it was time for the duct tape and rubber cement. I used the duct tape to fix tears that was in it and I used the rubber cement to coat all the edges to keep it from unraveling. Well a year later and both pieces are still hanging in there! Now you know why I need multiple vacuums! I love vintage crap BUT I am not boarder line hoarder lol
So after the other half got home, we brought the bed down and kitty and kitty stuff and I am 10feet under!! Ha I LOVE IT it is also a very nice 67 degrees down here and 52 outside!
I have my surround sound vintage DUMPSTER style!! God its nothing compared to the like 25k system I had pre life changing event Mcintosh Electrovice 5000+ records and reel to reels! Miss all that and curse all you to the deepest darkest parts of hell for stealing it all from my home!
So I promise to bring down the camera with the "flash" to get better photos but some how the fuzzy pics add to the vintage basement cool effect! Yeh I am so back to 60's America! Free LOVE...
Oh OH OHHHH I am sort of making friends with psycho bob!! I feel good about that, I can tell he has had the smelly end of the stick when he was younger and I would love to just talk with him! Sometimes, you just have to wait for that person to come to you! Its taken nearly a year, but he is seeing something in me to put down the testosterone shield.
Oh and YES I am so copying the Maxwell Cassette ad! That is a Scott big dog Silver face receiver, pair of Boston Acoustics A200 an some interesting infinity tower speakers.
|View from bed. Yes real vday trash roses!!|
|Work Space Needs Some Organizing!|

Oh and chances are that ^^^ Rug I nailed up is some multi thousand dollar lost Native American Woven rug :)
