The only bad thing about finding two big things early on is that I ran out of room in my van! I had to tie The Igloo to the top of my van and shove The Hutch inside. Then I had to drive around South Austin all morning with an igloo on my car. Which, because this is South Austin, does not garner any strange looks. I even showed up at our preschool's Cinco de Mayo party like this and several people suggested I turn my van into an art car.
In addition to my two big finds I also picked up a few nice 2x4 pieces, some 1" PVC pipe, and several cabinet doors. I don't need the cabinet doors themselves but they had some really nice hardware on them- brushed nickel pulls and good hinges. Those will come in handy at some point.
I think one of the things we have to do when scavenging materials is to see their potential. Often we don't need something to serve its original purpose but instead it finds new life as something else!
