Another pallet wood drill handled toolbox planter

Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 11.18.15 AM

My friend Hanne had an old drill that use to belong to her Grandfather. We recently connected and she expressed an interest in having a toolbox made with it like I did to my original drill handled toolbox HERE. It’s been awhile… could I remember how to make another pallet wood drill handed toolbox planter?!  Not […]

Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 10.45.20 AM

  Welcome to Party Junk 246 – 185 Upcycled Porches and Patios Every Friday, 7PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific One of my favourite things about summer is to park myself on my pallet sofa on my patio with my AM coffee, and greet the daily summer breeze. Ending each night with a great summer […]

One gutsy junk style entry table made from who knows what!

Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 11.43.48 PM

My front entry table was looking ‘tired’. I could either choose to tidy it up some, or start over. But…. I don’t know. I was ready to shake things up a little. You know how it doesn’t really matter how nice something is, it just feels old when it’s been around too long? That. So […]

Make an instant, chunky 2×4 tabletop with firewood coasters

Screen Shot 2014-06-28 at 11.39.47 PM

 With our muggy, summery days of late, it’s been nice to escape to the patio to take in the summer breeze. But I was missing one thing. While I made a handy little crate side table with a tray top, it wasn’t really perfect for say… a laptop. Being that I had two pallet sofas, another table […]

The metal storage rack for reclaimed wood is full!

Screen Shot 2014-06-18 at 12.15.14 AM

The beginnings of my dream workshop are coming to fruition! The dumpster found metal storage rack for reclaimed wood is full! Doesn’t it nearly bring a tear to your eye? I’m positively giddy over how organized and easy it is to find each piece and size! The unit didn’t need shelves at all. The longer pieces of […]

The ultimate red metal rack dumpster find

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 10.57.53 AM

I will admit… I was nervous posting yesterday’s messy garage post. Showing my garage in its current state was a little unnerving! But I braved it for a reason. Mess is normal. And I think it’s important to show the chaos that inspires the improvements we make. A few of you asked about the ultimate red metal rack […]

The makings of a dream workshop

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 12.29.59 AM

On Sunday, I had full intentions on doing a little building. But once I walked into the garage… Ugh. Not gonna lie. It’s not easy having a single car garage for your shed, storage and workshop. I’ve long wanted to gut this place and make it into something special. It’s all insulated with a heater and […]

An old sign toolbox side table to store all those remotes

Screen Shot 2014-06-08 at 7.00.45 PM

It’s been said I don’t ‘do colour’ in my house. And I’d have to agree. Between my monotone’d salvage farmhouse styled bathroom and rustic bedroom, there’s virtually no colour. Well, adding colour is pretty easy AND painless with just a little paint! And I’m happy to say, making this old sign toolbox side table to store […]
