PJ 257 – 75+ salvaged old signs

75+ Salvaged Old Signs - fabulous inspiration alongside a themed link party on FunkyJunkInteriors.net 

Welcome to Party Junk 257 – Salvaged Old Signs

Every Friday, 7PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific

Hello weekend party people! I am back from my Toronto trip! And I think the difference in time zones and a hectic schedule are just hitting me now. All at once.

So it comes with PERFECT timing that I am currently enjoying yet another short getaway near where my son is going to camp over the weekend. So stay tuned for some new junkin’ adventures ahead. And to hear all about my little cabin in the woods kinda stay….

To start this party off right,let’s revisit some highlights from last weekend’s upcycled link party… 

As a side note? I didn’t have any intentions of creating a theme this weekend until I noted all my choices… they ALL involved salvaged old signs… my fav topic of all. 🙂

Joan LOVES directional signs. So she came up with a super cool way to cherish the travels her own family has taken. A directional sign, complete with arrows and even a fish… how I love this idea! Lucky for US you found your pallet wood, Joan… and I might have to borrow this idea for my own yard. Too cool.

Cristina was simply cleaning out her garage, and came by this shallow drawer. Rather than tossing it, she created a one of a kind tray with a toolbox feel. How perfect! And she didn’t even use a machine to create the lettering…

I hereby announce that I think all trays ought to have this cool carrying handle… fabulous idea.

Becky came up with the perfect idea with some driftwood she had on hand. She even shares how she further rusted the iron hooks. This is a lovely, LOVELY project with a little story on what inspired this message.

Shannon waited 8 (EIGHT) years to find the perfect pantry door. And I do believe she nailed it in my book! Isn’t this old screen grocery store door the coolest idea in the land?! I do believe I’ve finally figured out what I want my front screen door to look like… inspired!

Desiring a place to hide all those annoying remote controls, this old vintage toolbox side table indeed did the trick… in true old sign style.

  1. I love old signs… They sure are hard to come by, though! The directional sign photo above is adorable. I have been wanting to make one of those but haven’t gotten to it yet. Perhaps now I will…. Hope you have a great weekend!! 🙂

  2. As a long time admirer of Funky Junk, I was thrilled when you chose my sign post to feature this week. Love your link parties every week and your themed link parties always give me tons of ideas.

  3. Old signs – any signs actually – are my weakness. I like them in all their forms – chipped rusted, bent and wobbly. I keep finding new places to display them so love the side table idea. Your blog is always my o to place for inspiration. Thank you!

  4. Hi Donna,
    It sounds like you are having some awesome times. I love all the signs that you featured. Thanks for the party. Have a great time at the cabin.
