Today I’ve been busy today getting ready for the Hometalk Meetup MIlner Village Garden event.
I found a multitude of junky garden photos to share, as well as social media info for the two talks I’ll be hosting. Thank-you for saving me yet again iPad… this thing is FAB for photos!
But as I was packing up some cool old relics to use for my garden demo…
I took a good look at the homemade toolboxes and realized, I’d surely be flaunting them, but little else.
So I did something about it! I searched out my reclaimed wood pile for my favourite pieces, then measured and cut.
And created funky little toolbox kits! All the parts are premeasured and ready to sand/put together. They are totally in the rough and ready for a special touch to bring them to life.
I did have a method to my madness. I want to see other girls build stuff, because I know myself what a valuable feeling that leaves one with.
Every toolbox has some kind of junk jewelry to go with it to entice the idea of further personalizing them.
Like I did on mine! This is why you collect weird junk. Junk is personality and transforms anything plain into a work of art.
Never underestimate the power of the tiniest piece of junk, such as this rusty old wrench. Yum!!
Every kit is uniquely different and also has a cool handle to go along with it. Except for the sign one. That’s going to be just a cool box.
The saw is even packed, so if I have time, I’ll demo one from scratch so others can follow suit once home if desired.
I also came up with a somewhat creative way to display our event and offer up my Funky Junk Interiors business cards.
The works is sitting inside an old sewing machine drawer. Easy to move, as well as providing the perfect repurposed card holder.
I cannot WAIT to meet up with so many junker / gardner types! But no worries if you aren’t local, I’ll attempt to share whatever photos I can get ahold of, as well as give you a show and tell of Milner Village itself. It’s pretty cool.
