DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 351

Every Friday, 7 PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific


Welcome, and a happy fall junk weekend to you!

Fall bike ride through the woods | funkyjunkinteriors.net
I couldn’t help myself. It’s so pretty out right now, when I had to ride by bike in order to pick up my truck being serviced, the camera HAD to come out. Isn’t this time of year outstanding? Here’s a little tour of my ‘creative bike route’... with potential to run into trains and bears.

This past week I have also been painting the boy’s bedroom (will update soon!) and invented a few new junk storage ideas. My fav is storing paint in a coke crate!

So swinging back to you, here’s what you did last weekend

I love Angie’s style anyway. I mean… when you adore every square inch of what you see, it’s hard not to fall hard.

But the ingenious way this spindle headboard was utilized? I can think of so many places to do this. Bathroom, bedroom… it’s just compact enough to squeeze it in anywhere you wish.

I love Carlene’s cheater build ways. She flipped over an old sign she had, to create a fresh, new look for her Laundry room. Isn’t this black on white so striking?

While this sign is currently holding a little crate filled with handy clothespins, it could be used in so many additional helpful ways! Perhaps a backdrop for a shelf? (I’m’ visioning black plant hanger side supports) Add hooks for hangers, or string and clothespins to catch the odd sock?

Stencil is part of my collection, in which the blog post shares all.

If you ever come across a broken ladder, Angie proves here it is not trash, but well loved wall decor!

In fact, why not take a step ladder apart, to create more than one room feature? Hmm…. yes!

If you are a bottle collector, you may wish to try this one. Adding vintage styled labels really ramps a plain bottle up, and can further their story.

During your next antique hunt, try looking for affordable old antique labels, like Diana did. Or do a google search on ‘antique label reproductions’ to see if you can find some to print.

These are so gorgeous and colourful! I know what I’m going to do on my next junk shopping trip.

Ever want a piece that you LOVE, but feel a need to bypass it because it’s too far gone, or old and smelly inside to actually be useful for storage?

Joan solves that issue in this post. This trunk has been revamped inside, so not only can you enjoy the authentic outside, you will want to use the new inside.

Genius! I have some fixing to do myself.

Anyone else feel a need to want to hang this charming wind chime outdoors just so you can hear the spoons tinkle?

And Tuula has given us a new reason to collect spoons! And clothespins.

Dear rustaholics, this idea will CRUSH you.

You MUST see how Cindy got new lids to look like this… her method pleasantly shocked me.

Start collecting those tin can toppers, because this table topper is crazy cool!

This thrift store frame became one gorgeously striking Halloween sign. Lisa had lots of patience on this one, but what a cool, subway styled outcome!

Just when I felt I’ve seen everything reclaimed wood could ever become, Caroline proved me wrong.

Oh my goodness… oh my goodness. This is over the top unique!

Even I played this past week, throwing together a few new junk storage ideas. The clear win is the crate filled paint testers! This post also showcases some past ideas too.

So, what did you make or do this past week? Link up below!

  1. Thanks Donna for PJ 351, appreciated. Enjoyed seeing your bike trip back from the garage, a few days with sunshine instead of rain makes the fall scenery a treat. We drove up the Fraser Canyon to enjoy the fall colours.

  2. Love your Coca Cola crate paint holder, Donna, and I so appreciate the feature of my antique soda bottles 🙂 No projects for me to link this week, but probably next…
