I remember the day I fell in love with all of you. It was just like it happened yesterday.
My house had just been finished being renovated, leaving me without a cent to decorate with.
I took in a local home show regardless, which further depressed me. I was just so weary on having nothing in my house that I needed something pretty to look at. But looking at all these high end things I couldn’t afford wasn’t exactly the right place to be.
Or was it…
As I drove home, I nearly came to a screeching halt when I noticed a cool old market sign in the back 40 of a local gas station.
“Can I have that OLD BEAT UP SIGN out in your yard?”
“You wanna clean up my place?! Go for it!” He helped me load it.
He had no idea what he just gave me. And I had no idea what was about to embark.
I had just fired up Funky Junk Interiors not even a whole month ago, which seemed to be a suitable name for collecting forgotten junk off the curb, for decor purposes.
And this was the night I fell in love with you…
I created a headboard with that sign. I was so anxious to show you what I had done, I didn’t even finish the room before the photo shoot!
I threw it up on my reno blog and got 42 comments! VIRAL CITY!
It was right about that time that I fired up Funky Junk Interiors, knowing this could flip into something rather exciting… maybe.
Over time, this wacky project was well received! It was only my 6th Funky Junk post and your feedback and the coolness of the project inspired me beyond measure. I knew I was onto something super cool and never looked back.
So! My point today is to tell you how much I love and appreciate all of you. You gave me the encouragement to not fear putting up something strange and wonderful, and in return, it’s my hope those strange creations continue to inspire you to just be yourself as well. And make your home yours for very little money required.
Happy Valentine’s Day to every one of you! May you follow your own heart’s desires and spread your own joy through your passion every day of your life!
All my strange and wonderful creations. Thank-you for loving them!
