We’re nearing the closure of this fun contest! And it’s my total honor to show off these 5 entries that I feel emulated my style with full colour junky flair. 🙂
Here are the top 5 entries I fell head over heals in love with.
In no particular order…
Well BJ, even though you couldn’t fall in love with your sign, I LOVE it. And it got you in the top 5. 🙂
BJ bid on the sign on Ebay, won it (only one that bid LOL) and it’s been under her bed for 2 years. 2 YEARS. Know why? It was rusty…
I so laughed through this whole post. She really really wanted to funk her junk and in the end, just couldn’t fall in love with the look, but she did keep the jar with the chains on her mantel. Go BJ! Don’t you love her candle holder? Coolest idea ever.
Well, regardless of what BJ thinks, this mantel is top notch in my book. I love the play of the white enamel, black lettering and rusty trinkets, right along with a FJI trademark plant to soften things up. I think this is a very cool look!
As for the sign? It was last seen outside in the garden. Because it was ru… never mind. I can’t even say it. 🙂
When I saw Danylle’s desk, I got chills. Not only did she emulate the gate and wreath combo from my bedroom, the door looked like I simply flopped down my headboard and created an instant office. This feels so much like mine it’s unnerving! Maybe I have to make one. 🙂 Familiar things such as the sewing machine drawers filled with thread looked as if I propped them in place myself.
I had also JUST been talking about white vintage doors for office toppers in my downstairs office and then this popped up. It was if what I imagined came to life. And I didn’t even have to lift a finger this time. 🙂 Very cool.
I love this office, Danylle! You did a fabulous take on what I would do.
Oh my. Sharon hit on so many similarities I really didn’t even know which pictures of my own to pull up. I mean, I have the gear and those scissors and the coke crate and the ball jar, clay pots, plants, gahh!!
There was so much ME in this group it was haunting. And this only shows about 1/3 of what she had out. I totally adore how chic her junk appears too. Her vignette style is so similar to my own, especially at the base of the fireplace. It just feels right! Love this, Sharon!
When I saw Laurel’s entry, I exclaimed, “YES! That’s my wall unit!” 🙂 And I laughed out loud at the license plate on the crate. Totally me. Happy glorious junk wherever you look. Laurel also used some pieces that are great for storage, which is something I highly gravitate towards.
I’m so LOL over her hubby and herself shopping for that wall unit. He apparently doesn’t take in decor blogs, however when he spotted my wall unit, he went shopping for some and found them on sale. “Buy them all!”, shouted Laurel. Hilarious! Loved the display and the story, Laurel. 🙂
Well now, you’ve got to be kidding me!
Cindy had wanted to do some crate style patio stairs, however didn’t feel her landlord would appreciate the attempt, so she attacked a table instead. Isn’t this wild? That route 66 is the coolest. And I’ve fallen in love with this little helper too. 🙂 IN LOVE, Cindy! I hope you love your table just as much today as the day you made it.
It was so very difficult to only pick 5 of you. The reason I chose these 5 is because they had the same or nearly identical elements I have in my own home. If they felt like I did or had them, that’s what sold me.
Oh I’m so glad I don’t have to pick the winner! That’s for Miss Mustard Seed to do. Isn’t this the hardest decision ever?!?
Congrats to all 5 of you!
Stay tuned for tomorrow. The winner will be posted 10 pm Pacific with a nice big feature. 🙂 I totally don’t envy you 5 having to wait. 🙂
Miss Mustard Seed also announced her finalists tonite.
