PJ 321 – the BEST DIY salvaged junk!
Every Friday, 7 PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific
Hello my junk lovin’ friends! May your coffee be hot and your PJs be your clothing of choice this fine weekend, as you gaze through more junk inspiration!
It’s been a relatively quiet week on Funky Junk. Just a few behind the scenes dealings have kept me busy.
BUT… I did make this super cool garden junk orb from a broken barrel…
AND I did find a new trail during this bike ride… aren’t these surroundings swoon worthy?
Aside from that, I’ve had these internal stirrings to reach out and do something super inspiring through words. I don’t know what that means yet, but you can bet I’m internally searching… I’m thinking it may mean to sit down and write… lots. But on what I don’t yet know.
It’s another soul searching season I suppose… is there anything that stands out that you’d want to hear LOTS on? Maybe that’s the key… hearing from you.
What kinds of writings inspire you the most that you can’t seem to get enough of? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
So anyway… here’s what caught my eye from last weekend’s party…
Painted and stencilled armoire makeover, by Confessions of a Serial DIYer
I think big furniture pieces hold a real bonus, storage and presence wise. But sometimes something big can appear heavy.
This makeover changes that theory. Go stock up on your white paint and pretty stencils pronto…
DVD CABINET INTO A FAUX CARD CATALOG, by Viral Upcycle
A so not my style DVD cupboard morphing into THIS beauty? This is a must check out! You won’t believe the before!
And isn’t that paint job the coolest?
Don’t have any cool planters for this summer? Don’t dispair… put those plastic pots to work instead. I kid you not! AMAZING idea.
Corrugated metal and reclaimed wood farmhouse styled wall art, by Knick of Time
Angie’s farmhouse touches always steal my heart. I’ll take this entryway pronto!
But let’s just swoon over that mix of corrugated metal, wood and mason jar goodness, shall we? 3D art at its finest! Wouldn’t that make a cool magnetic board in an office too? Where are those tin snips…
VINTAGE SODA CRATE TURNED FOOT STOOL by Prodigal Pieces
This ottoman speaks to me on so many levels. It’s real vintage / you can store stuff if the top is made into a lid / it’s real vintage!!!
Dear crates, your days as a simple crate are numbered…
Cross stitch styled picture on a vintage screen, by Prodigal Pieces
This gorgeous, genius project had my teen years rushing back to me, when I use to cross stitch. I couldn’t LOVE this more if I tried! Such a neat idea for any screen or mesh object, isn’t it?!
Salvaged sewing machine base turned side table plus others, by Knick of Time
If you’re looking for ideas on what to do with misfit reclaims, this is your post, showcasing several. But my heart goes out to this sewing machine side table. It’s upcycled perfection… beautiful, useful, classic.
If you’re a collector, showing off our junkiest is what we love to do!
Here’s how to do it in such a way that doesn’t add clutter, nor need dusting. A window made coffee table gives you everything you need… , plus it becomes useful furniture! Does it get any better than that?
Broken barrel turned rusty junk garden orb / funkyjunkinteriors.net
Being challenged to come up with a spring project, I started to clean up outdoors when WHOMP! A broken flower barrel gave up on me. But I didn’t give up on it…
