Welcome to Party Junk 257 – Salvaged Old Signs
Every Friday, 7PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific
Hello weekend party people! I am back from my Toronto trip! And I think the difference in time zones and a hectic schedule are just hitting me now. All at once.
So it comes with PERFECT timing that I am currently enjoying yet another short getaway near where my son is going to camp over the weekend. So stay tuned for some new junkin’ adventures ahead. And to hear all about my little cabin in the woods kinda stay….
To start this party off right,let’s revisit some highlights from last weekend’s upcycled link party…
As a side note? I didn’t have any intentions of creating a theme this weekend until I noted all my choices… they ALL involved salvaged old signs… my fav topic of all. 🙂
Reclaimed wood directional signs / Scavenger Chic
Joan LOVES directional signs. So she came up with a super cool way to cherish the travels her own family has taken. A directional sign, complete with arrows and even a fish… how I love this idea! Lucky for US you found your pallet wood, Joan… and I might have to borrow this idea for my own yard. Too cool.
Cristina was simply cleaning out her garage, and came by this shallow drawer. Rather than tossing it, she created a one of a kind tray with a toolbox feel. How perfect! And she didn’t even use a machine to create the lettering…
I hereby announce that I think all trays ought to have this cool carrying handle… fabulous idea.
Driftwood HOME coatrack sign / Beyond the Picket Fence
Becky came up with the perfect idea with some driftwood she had on hand. She even shares how she further rusted the iron hooks. This is a lovely, LOVELY project with a little story on what inspired this message.
Shannon waited 8 (EIGHT) years to find the perfect pantry door. And I do believe she nailed it in my book! Isn’t this old screen grocery store door the coolest idea in the land?! I do believe I’ve finally figured out what I want my front screen door to look like… inspired!
Desiring a place to hide all those annoying remote controls, this old vintage toolbox side table indeed did the trick… in true old sign style.
