What you can do with $80 of trim

A {long} long time ago, we found a super sweet deal on CL. A whole heapfull of trim for $80. I think he wanted more, but with my {incredible} bargaining skills we got a whole heap for $80. Not all the projects are exactly finished yet {namely the crown molding that still needs the finishing touches}. But since I finally just used up the last bit of the trim {that just kept giving}, I thought I'd give a shoutout to that wonderful pile that haunted us for so long.

We might have been a little illegal on our drive home with the trim sticking both in front of our Jeep, and behind. {Red flags can only give you so much comfort, but it's even worse when they fall off during the drive}.

I had just finished installing internet wires through our place when we brought the pile home. So sadly we got to live with the mess in our hall for a while. I was successful in getting the bulk of it used up quickly {even if I didn't finish the project, at least the trim was out of toe-stubbing range}. So here's to that wonderful headache pile of trim!

So can you believe all that! What a great pile of junk we got for $80! I might wait a while before I venture that journey again though.

  1. Oh, so much, for so littl,e with so much creativity! Love what you've done with all the trim! BTW: I think you need some shells from Bali for that tall jar in your bathroom!
