devine dumpster finds
Free for the taking! Tod and I have been stopping by a dumpster in Stowe often as we can, they are renovating a building and this is where we've been getting mini loads of wood strapping. It's the good kind too, that 'green' pre-treated stuff. I was running dangerously low on strapping and dreaded having to buy it, it aint cheap and I go through a fair amount believe it or not. I use it on the back of many pieces of art for floating the work away from the wall. I also use it when I'm building/putting together work, comes in handy in so many ways. Sometimes I feel slightly ridiculous peering into a dumpster and taking things out but I have no pride when it comes to saving myself money, especially when something is literally being thrown away. Keep your eyes open you never know what you will find out there!
