In case you’re new here, I’m Donna, author of

Funky Junk Interiors and my feature blog, I Love That Junk.

My deal is collecting the stuff that no one wants and morphing them into must haves for my home.

So ready for some new fall junk?! Let’s get started!

Vintage ironing board entry table / Fall junkers unite with an ironing board table, a pin board and a linkup! via http://www.funkyjunkinteriors.net/

I love an entry way table for a drop station for all things front door, so I pulled out a vintage ironing board, married it to a like minded wood framed mirror, and the rest just fell into place.

The fall touches are subtle… using branches and fall hydrangeas added just the right amount without taking over valuable space.

My very favourite part are the minnow baskets, with one holding some hydrangeas, and the other, white mini lights for a nice candlelit glow.

With active cats in the house, I’m never comfortable with an open flame left unattended, so lights make this a safe option.

The lights were tucked inside and I called it done! The metal bucket does get warm, so to be safe, a cork coaster was placed underneath for added heat protection.

A vintage drain cover holds Funky Junk biz cards, and an old creamer scooped up from Farm and Found, part of The Urban Market on the weekend holds writing materials.

One always needs a place for spare change and keys too of course! The round thing to the right is a clothesline wheel holding the little metal rusty measuring cup in place for spare keys. Everything has a place.

The meat grinder is just cool on it’s own, or could be used for…

… hanging my purse.

Now… I have another version but felt it didn’t represent as well on film. But was cool in person.

Behind the ironing board, the wall is lined with a gate, a window and a mirror acting sort of like a junk inspired wainscotting. Why not? ๐Ÿ™‚

 The space looked a little bare without more activity so I junked it up to the brim. I’ll be putting it back again because it really does look cooler with it all in person. I even liked how the string of lights slightly illuminated that window. It’s like someone lives down there. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Hey! I really like the addition of the white lights – I’ll use almost ANY excuse to put up some “christmas” lights. I actually have some on my own front hall bench, right now! Just put them there the other night!
    I don’t think I’ve ever seen this particular angle in your house before! Cool!

  2. Donna,
    I love it! The wood, metal, and mirrors together is so warm and inviting. You are so talented. I get so much inspiration from you. I have a lot of things that belonged to my family that I just don’t know what to do with and your ideas are great. I’ve gotten some “grief” occasionally from family and friends about why I would want all this “old junk” but I just love it. I’m not sure why I just do. Thanks for sharing all your fantastic ideas. Also, you made me smile with your comment about it looking like someone lives under there. You are so cute!

  3. Donna, I love how you used so many different and unique elements to do your entry way table. You always get me thinking outside of the box. You were one of the first blogs I ever started reading and you were like my first teacher. Love the idea of hiding lights on something and the meat grinder..how original! You know I have one from my grandmother and I drag it out several times a year to make ham salad with left over ham. I love that thingโ€ฆneed to drag it out appreciate its beauty:)

  4. Hi Donna,
    Happy Fall. Here in SoCal it dropped 20′ in one day, going from warm days to cool ones overnight! I absolutely adore your front hall. I saw a wood ironing board just like that at the flea market last weekend, but it was priced over $125–UGH! And my Mom still uses her iron meat grinder! I’ll have to make sure she doesn’t throw it away! Anyway, I love reading your blog–it’s so inspiring.
    Stay warm,
    Doreen
