Well, Shut the F&$K YOU! A FREE HOUSE is pretty much the end all/be all of my Free Shiot Friday posts. I mean...WHAT?!:
Full style slapping, full on about my entire face!!!! This Old House June 2014 mag has TAKEN US THERE with this!!! Can any one of my Ohio family (or friends) please go get this house? Seriously? Or, for that matter, anyone on the interwebs who sees this post and wants a fabulous house, FOR FREE, please go get this!!!!???? I am BEYOND that houses like this firstly-- are ever just "left vacant" to begin with and secondly-- are available for FREE. The shiot is 5,561 s.f. with 4 bedrooms and 5 baths! It needs "significant repairs and updates" and the bank whose giving away the keys to this freebie Queen Anne will only do so if y'all have a serious game plan and serious cash to WERK THIS HOUSE OUT!!! To sweeten the deal, I will donate my mad decorating skillz to any one of my friends or family who hop on this FREE SHIOT FRIDAY HOUSE REALNESS! Go grab it UP, Hunty's and let's fulfill your Queen Anne DREAMZZZ!
It's FREE SHIOT FRIDAY & there's one HAWT piece on the curb waiting to be scooped up! Pic by Kelly MarshallRead More
Real potential for chic-ery? Or is she just too exhausted to even bother?
The upholstery decided it was DONE prob a decade or more BEFORE she even landed here, so obvi, re-upholstery would be in order. I do like her overall silhouette, which I find slightly...clutch your pearls...MODERN, despite the cra cra REGALIA woodwork that's absolutely style-slapping us all quickly about the face. She's boxy yet bodacious-- which makes for a HAWT combo:
Imagine this gal's woodWERK lacquered in black (or white, even) with some incredible fabric, like these?
I think this lady has a lotta life left in her! Sure hope somebody scooped her up and is gonna do right by her! Now, go do right by y'all-selves, take to the streets and get you some free shiot-- happy Friday!!!
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!
