Cleaning up the corners, outdoors and within.

read

I am rather proud of me. I use to work all day, then all evening. Or even late into the night to compensate for day appointments. Workworkwork. These days, my regular routine is much different. Much. After dinner, I get outdoors and walk or bike or both. Then I come into the house, shower, then basically collapse […]

She Shed soil sifter gardening station sign

read

Back when the two garden themed stencils were developed, Grit Antiques came out with a She Shed project. I didn’t make a stencil that said She Shed! Miss Clever Jane just got all creative with Shed and made it up. Ever since that project, I vowed to do something She Shed-ish myself! And today was the day. […]

Quirky 2 ladder shelving in the entry

read

This super quirky 2 ladder shelving in the entry was all thanks to yet ANOTHER closet redo. Remember the post about the cheap closet kit in my son’s room? The same treatment was done in our little entryway closet, and this was the result. I can’t seem to find the before picture, so I’ll spare you […]

read

When I went to the farmer’s market this past weekend, there was one booth that had this adorable antique wagon.  As soon as I spotted it, I deemed it mine… if they would sell it. Crossing my fingers… SOLD! So today, being so gorgeous out, I was in the mood to do a quick DIY […]

So… something happened after Journal 3 – just getting on with it. As your comments have come gratefully pouring in, my little brain went KABOOM… and I started hustling. I promise to sit down and read your wonderful comments tonight…. I’m excited at what you had to say! But I think it’s safe to say, the theory […]

Funky garden junk orb thanks to a broken barrel

read

I’m rather excited to share this funky garden junk orb project, because it involves the great outdoors! You’ve asked me for 2 years to post more outdoor projects, so that’s a new goal I’m attempting this year. I’m also excited about today, because this is part of a very large blog hop, hosted by Hometalk, where […]

Mantel decorating with a reclaimed scrap wood window box

read

When we were in Hawaii last summer, we went to this little town called Paia, in Maui. It wears a true hippy vibe, with patchwork buildings, tall looming rustic trees, with plenty of dreadlocks and bare toes for good measure. So when I whipped up this little window box, it yelled BOHO! Or maybe it […]

Funky Junk’s best DIY of 2015 – then and now

read

Well junkers, this is a good time to look over the entire year in one big scroll. So what went down in 2015? Ohhh…. well… I purged, painted, collected old wood, made cool stuff with old wood, organized better, created more storage. Then I saw a little more of the world, then came back home […]
