Junk Brothers (HGTV)

nwroseladyJuly 14, 2006

Anyone see this new show, debued last night (Wednesdays, 11:00 pm)? It features two brothers who drive around, find stuff left out on the curb, pick it up, refurbish it and return it (unasked) to the original owners.

In the first episode, they turned an old dresser into a kitchen island with a new top, and turned an old cooking range into a barbeque with wheels. Bummer! I just bought a new stove and was delighted to have the installer remove the old one. I could have made it into a barbeque. On the other hand, I don't have all the tools the Junk Brothers have. Their workshop is a dream of space and organization.

Sounds like a good show. I will try to catch it next time it's on.

I agree, Roselady. I yelled and told my DH to come and look. Their work area is to kill for! The thing that got me was the amount of money they probably spent on turning that "junk" into "treasure"! I don't know how practical the idea really is, but it's sure interesting! LOL

I have free long distance phone so I called my sis in Ohio and we watched it together. I'm in New England. I really liked the kitchen island but wasn't too personally thrilled with the stove BBQ. It was definitely a "man's thing." We laughed when one of the guys jumped on top and the other pushed him down the road. I wonder what they'll make next week. I checked their website but it doesn't say. Wish it wasn't on so late. HGTV Rocks!!!
