Trash to Treasure

The inspiration for this Trash to Treasure post came by way of email and I wish there was a credit, as the pictures are fabulous! The original email mentioned that the origami artist, Won Park, who I wrote about in my last post, was supposed to also live in this truck. He does not.  This truck is more a demonstration of design genius rather than art, but again, design and art are related.

You would never think this vehicle is any more than just a typical, everyday trash truck from the outside, but what a treasure on the inside.

I thought it was perfect to post because I’m sorting through stuff and trying to purge garbage in the new year. Folks typically make resolutions, mine is usually to clean clutter. I not only wish I had a garbage truck this nice but one to haul it all a way and for someone else to deal with it. Wow, what a transformation! There is no room for clutter in this space. It would force me to live simply and be even more organized. I get giddy over containers and everything having a purposeful place. Although I’ve learned to lose that sense of perfection over the ages, I’ll be dreaming about those kitchen drawers. They are fantastic!

My favorite thing in our kitchen are our toe kick drawers that I had custom built.
