Dumpster diving is sometimes viewed as an urban foraging technique.Dumpster divers typically scour thru dumpsters for items such as clothing, furniture, food and…my good luck… bookends… in serviceable condition.
Imagine my surprise and delight when my friend BC found these cool bookends near his dumpster in the North Park neighborhood in San Diego. Location to be kept secret– I have to protect my sources! BC is an avid “dumpster watcher” who is always on the look-out for trash-to-treasure opportunities. What a score!
As you can see, I had books all in disarray in the living room. Well, maybe not this bad but you get the idea, right?
So… the bookends look really cute on my shelf in the living room. And the books look a little more tidy as well. Not bad for a dumpster diving find! Bravo!

How cool is that? I especially like the colored wall!
The colored wall is actually a large picture that I haven’t hung up on the wall. It’s propped up against the wall right now- and makes a pretty good background for blog photos– ha.
I agree– the bookends were a good score.
