It's FREE SHIOT FRIDAY & there's one HAWT piece on the curb waiting to be scooped up! Pic by Kelly MarshallRead More
She isn't even attempting to trick y'all into thinking she's real brass, but cleaned up, re-upholstered in something fab and given a new glass top, she could help you WERK your hostess skillz beyond belief:
The table base design is giving us all kinds of Dynasty...it's on it's side on the end:
Happy Friday, y'all-- now go out and score some Free Shiot!
Y'all, this little lady greeted me on my way out of my building:
How sweet! Just minding her own business, all cute-like with hits of mid-century details, trying to stay out of everyone's way behind that gate...I sure hope someone scoops her up & takes the best care of her with some fab paint job or a refinish...she is FREE after all, and it IS Friday! Enjoy!
This cabinet is screaming to get painted in a fun color and then serve yo ass in the kitchen as extra work surface/storage, the dining room as a server/buffet or in the living room as a media console/credenza/ or an entryway table...
Point is: pieces like these are workhorses. They're uber-functional and can look chic too, with some quick paint lovin'...and being free means you can't go wrong no matter what. Free workhorses...that's the kind of horse I like to ride!!! I mean. What a great way to start a weekend! Savor it, y'all!
Y'all do see the glory that is leaning up against this building, beckoning you to snatch her up and hang her on your wall? Damn-- now that's some fabulous free glamour right there, y'all! In case you can't tell what you're looking at-- no it's not a mirage-- that's a sputnik, mirrored wall unit/curio shelf, on its' side...YES-- the things I could display in THAT!!!
Here's another shot with flash:
Somebody better scoop that HAWT mama up!!! Happy Friday!
Only in NYC would y'all find authentic mid-century furniture in da TRASH...what! what!...this is Kartell's Componibili 2 drawer side table, which rest assured, costs a pretty penny...vintage or new:
And then we pull back for a wide shot and see another section of this baby, buried beneath the first section...shiot:
See, y'all this is what this side table looks like when she's at her best, not chillin' in a trash can:
So, now y'all know why I was tots backslapped when I found this lady in a trash can!!!...the shade:
See, this treasure hunting is exactly why me and my genius Trashinistas (Alane & Andy) partnered with Mark Mark Productions on a tv show concept called, Trash NYC that we pitched to networks (featuring the FAB Carly Hughes)...which y'all can watch for y'all-selves below:
Now got out and get y'all-selves some Free Shiot-- from the trash, the curbs, dumpsters...there's some style lurking about, just aching to be discovered and Trashformed!!! Happy Friday!
Well damn if NYC and vicinity hasn't had it's fair share of heinous weather and now Nemo is upon us!!! In fact, as I type this, there's some sort of air strike sounding siren going off in the distance and I'm not quite sure what it's alerting me to? Snow? Ice? Nuclear fallout? Since when does NYC use sirens in neighborhoods? Just more drama to add to an already high drama alert situation? YES! See, I wasn't already amped up enough by all the media coverage on Nemo, so let's sound some alarms, that probably haven't been used since the 50's, to heighten the scene even more! Speaking of, today's Free Shiot Friday is a real doozie, check it:
Yeah, in case that pic isn't clear enough:
There's just so much wrong with this scenario...but one of the highlights of wrongness here is, 'hi, I've got a pig's head I need to throw out, so I'm gonna go to the trouble of bagging it, but I think rather than just throw it out in the trash bins in front of my building, where I normally throw out all my trash, I'm gonna walk across the street, meander down the sidewalk a bit and then dump this bag in Prospect Park'...wtf? I know our neighborhood has some real issues with cleanliness, as witnessed by the endless parade of all things chicken strewn over the sidewalks at any given time (and season!), but this one kinda just takes precedence...
Y'all, happy Friday...awwww, I heart NYC...remember, sometimes just b/c it's FREE, doesn't mean you want to take it home!
Hanging hardware still intact and looking operational (someone must've just smashed this poor girls door in a fashion frenzy one morning and here she is, out on the street...the shade!):
LOVE the fun yellow and white stripe party happening in the back of the interior of armoire...'cause y'all know the front is all business and shiot:
What's great too is that back can be changed to fit whatever party you got going on, if you're not vibing yellow and white mountain alps Ricola-realness! Paint it out, add a different patterned paper, or fun fabric...I mean, just let loose like you never knew you could on the back of an armoire, people!!!! YESSSS! Free Shiot Friday is about freedom and the USA!
Here's another shot that details the clothing bar...
Or boombox, or bar or World Britannica Collection or...Happy Friday y'all! Go out and get some Free Shiot!
And don't y'all know a whole damn week has gone by since my last post and I've been too slung up...what the...? Well, feast on this gorg that was just left out on the street:
She comes with extra baggage, but that's easily done away with...and the wheels are divine:
This is probably a Goodform and she'd need some TLC, probably a reupholster rehab, but overall, she's tres chic and would look incredible paired with some french frilly writing desk or even a simple parson's style desk:
Happy Friday, y'all!!!
Y'all, some FREE Shiot you don't want-- like this raging flu that had it's way with me (and the rest of the planet it seems?!) for several days...it's been next to impossible to get my dazzle on around here! But then this little lady saddled up to the curb, all woody and cute-like and brought me right back on the road to my former sassy self:
Y'all, clearly someone has just emptied their entire bedroom on the sidewalk here...scary, but then table lady had even more to reveal than just her scalloped decolletage:
Well, Style Slap-- she SPINS, y'all! Can't say I've ever come across a table with a spinning top! And I can totally see why it would be super-functional albeit slightly unstable, for a dining room table, but this one threw me even more b/c she's a side table, or at least, based on size/scale, that's how I'd use her. But, perhaps she was a potter's wheel/table, or some sort of model making or other art table? Whateve's-- she's unique, in great condition and with some very minor TLC, she'll be livin' it up with Debbie as a side table in her new place...woohoo...I just LOVE it when cool, Free Shiot finds a new, loving home!:
Happy Free Shiot Friday y'all and stay healthy!!!
