I know. You live next to a junker, and I feel for you!
I vision folks coming home, noting it must be garbage day when they face my place, then gasp and run indoors when they clue in. No, it’s just another junkin’ haul that won’t fit in my garage. Ah well!
Let’s face it. My rusty relics on display are pure beauty to me, but maybe I need to do a little convincing to the non junkers. Is it possible?!
Then I got to thinking… I adore how my buddy Miss Mustard Seed stages her milk paint line. She coats out a dresser, stages it, and introduces the new colour. Genius!
I can do that! Ok non junkers, this one’s for you! Tell me if this junk staging doesn’t leave you weeping for more… I call this little comparison…
Milk Paint Line vs. Junk That’s So Fine
Say hello to Typewriter.
Say oh my to Tetanus Shot.
Note the matt black, lightly misted with a breath of rusty patina. Complete with a gently curved handle. Decadent! The sticker represents an authentic thrill of the hunt shopping experience.
Say hello to Dried Lavender.
Say oh my to Saturated Wrench.
Because you can never have too many rusty wrenches that you’ll never use as a wrench. You know you want this.
Say hello to Artissimo.
Say oh my to Art… Oh No!
Deep aqua toned metal toolboxes enhanced with shades of rust, rocking amongst a stormy sea of ivy. Why I do not Oh Know.
And the dramatic angled closeup…
Say hello to Trophy.
Say oh my to Troll Free
Stacked vintage metal bins begging you to fill them up with anything but Trolls. Yes, I’m grasping. Can you tell?
Pure art! With no Trolls in sight.
Say hello to Boxwood.
Say oh my to Lost Hood.
A sprinkling of rusty shovel heads having no where else to go. Or anything else to do. Because they’re only shovel heads after all.
Say hello to Ironstone.
Say oh my to Iron Thrown.
Get into the automotive vibe and throw these (whatever they are) near your truck for that breakdown drama effect. Pinterest… get ready for this one.
All kidding aside, I so admire how Miss Mustard Seed’s Marian stages her milk paint line. I cannot wait to try it and a few other wood and metal products one day soon! When I order some. I should do that. Maybe if I took the time to do that instead of this silly post I’d have some! Marian, please just send me what you think I need. Maybe it’ll happen then.
Disclosure: no friendship was harmed in the making of this tongue in cheek post. Marian was on board and told me to roll with it because she appreciates my junk! (is a good sport)
