Old palette TV stand

Why do I love junk?

 

Mattress spring bulletin board


I think everything in my home falls under this catagory.

Old crate staircase

Why am I so spellbound working with stuff meant to cover up, throw away or burn? Why don’t I just go buy ‘nice’ things?

White trash bedroom

Because buying pretty off a shelf just doesn’t ‘rust my metal’. I flat out love to pick up hopeless wonders and make them shine in my own way. It’s all in the creative process for me. It’s a self challenge to see if I can pull it off and be happy with the end result.

I’m not much of a builder. (yet) So if I can find something sturdy that will stand the test of time, my framework is intact. You then simply work some magic on an existing piece and make it your own creation. If you told me to never create ever again, landfills would overflow. No. It’s necessary I stay on this little mission of mine.

So, last week I challenged you:

“Got a piece of junk that you turned into something magical? And by junk I truly mean, something you never thought in a million years you could save. I wanna see a real piece that was destined for the burn pile.”

Let’s talk junk! What’s your craziest junk project to date? Where do you find yours?  Better yet.. where do you store it until you create with it?!? Egads I’m in trouble here.

The JUNK theme is below!


~ Next weekend’s themed link ~


A suggestion from SNS #31 was…

Old windows!  

We all love them and most of us have them. What have you done with an old window lately? Bring it along next weekend!

~ SNS blah blah linkup rules ~

1. Please link up your intended post, NOT your blog homepage url. (post, then click the title of your post, cut and paste that url)

2. Please put a link in your post that leads back to the party so others can see what’s up! (scroll button on sidebar if you wish)

 3. This party is geared for DIY type projects we can all attempt to make ourselves. Items for sale may be linked up IF your entry is posted on your blog and in tutorial style (unless making the item is self explanatory).

5. For Home Decor and Crafts, Sewing, Cooking, please link projects up that are new to SNS and within 1 month old. The 3rd weekly themed link may have older posts and not brand new to SNS.

If you can’t decide which category to enter yours in, please just pick ONE and go with it. It’s all good!

Happy junkin’ weekend.  :)

  2. I LOVE IT ALL! that stairs and is that an old crip spring… HOLY COW… I adore that! I need to keep my eyes peeled for one. I love how you embelished it. SO DARLING. I adore your taste. P.S. I linked up too. THANKS SO MUCH, Jenn

  3. Thank you for hosting these fun link parties. I love that you have the two different categories. Love all your creations too – so inspiring!

  4. Crackly and bubbly most certainly works for me! LOVE it, Magic! :)

    Liz, I so want to see what you get out of that barn! That sounds like a worthwhile scavenger hunt for sure.

    Thanks all, for your wonderful links! I’m having waaaay too much fun. :)

  6. You turn junk into the most amazing pieces. I’m always so impressed with what you do with things other people just overlook. Thanks for another great party.

  7. This is so much fun! Its like one stop shopping for me on this drizzly Saturday morning.The best part of this shopping is that I still have money left to spare. haha There’s alot of talent here…some have left me spechless. Thank you Donna for this <3

  8. Donna,
    This is a great theme. I love all your junk, you are definitely the queen of junk, there are so many wonderful creations you have come up with.
    I’m going to have a hard time deciding what I enter in this one, EVERYTHING I make is from junk!

  9. I am glad buying pretty off the shelf doesn’t rust your metal. You do the most amazing things with junk that makes it not look like junk anymore. Thanks for having the link up. Hope you have a nice weekend.
    MY best- Diane

  10. Wow! Thanks so much for featuring my Butterfly Lamp & for your sweet comments! I wish I had the eye you do for “good’ junk!!! Love it!

  11. Janelle, I indeed smile every time I walk those stairs. They are so me I want to scream. And do the same treatment on everything I see! I hold myself back. Alot. :)

    11:00 AM Saturday, pouring rain, my son still fast asleep, coffee in hand, now going on 3 hours of uninterrupted SNS snooping = BLISS! Thanks for the great morning, all! I totally need to get off this thing and go make something!

  12. Just had to let you know that I am so loving the theme addition to your party. The last few times, I’ve found myself scrolling down straight to the theme section because I’m so excited to participate and so excited to see what others have done for a theme I’m excited about. Thanks so much for doing this!

  13. I never noticed the Canada Dry crate under the TV stand before. It made me laugh because I remember travelling to Nashville about 14 years ago and a friend asked for a ginger ale…and the person said they didn’t have that salad dressing!
    I love the TV stand BTW!!

  14. Hi Donna! Thank you so much for hosting! I hope I’m not in trouble…I originally wanted to link up to the “JUNK” party…but got ahead of myself…so I’m liked up to 2…super sorry…hope you can find it your ♥ to forgive me? :) Hope your having a great weekend!

  15. Hi there Donna,
    You host the best parties…thanks! I just noticed your amazing bed springs turned bulletin board. Love it!! Who would have thought? thanks so much for stopping by. I see that next weeks theme is old windows. I’ve got one my mom gave me that I have been meaning to transform. Now I need to get busy!!

  16. Just coming by to say thank you for hosting this last week. I never commented last week and am just now getting back around, so thank you! :)
