Looking at trash in a different context

I was out for a walk in my Belleville (NJ) neighborhood and noticed this pile of trash on the side of the curb awaiting pickup (below left), and the long flat painted surface caught my attention. It looks like a folding table that has been used for a lot of different art or home improvement projects, as the combination of drips, splatters, spills, and spray paint edges makes for an interesting composition.

Of course my tendency is to imagine taking this out of this context and seeing it in a frame, wondering how it would look as art … what do you think?
