Welcome to Party Junk 260 – Funky Junk’s Best of 2014… and yours!
Every Friday, 7 PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific
Happy New Year everyone!
Boy oh boy, there’s nothing like a deadline to get you out of the holiday groove and back to work! 🙂
I nearly forgot to post this weekend’s link party. Not sure about you, but I’m still in holiday mode, so I haven’t created one. new. thing. yet. Other than more mess in the kitchen and living room from our late night movie marathons and chowing down on holiday treats! 🙂
So this weekend, a reg link up will indeed be in place, along with YOUR best of 2014!
Being naturally curious, I dug through my own google analytics and had to laugh… 2014 reader favs were all from my new bathroom makeover back in January!
I’ve also included my own favs from this past year… so here are mine…
I’ll feature some of yours next weekend! So please link yours up too so we can take it all in!
Desiring to recreate a farmhouse feel, I started with the bathroom. This was my first ever attempt at window molding. Note all straight cuts with no miter joins? Easy!!! So easy I wish to do the rest of my house like this now too.

I did say dream farmhouse, right? Gotta have a planked ceiling… so over the popcorn I went!

It appears the entire room was a hit… here’s the main reveal. I have to honestly say this is my fav room in the house, and I need to implement this look throughout. Maybe after I purge, I may get on that!
And now below, are my own personal 2014 favs… did your fav get included in the mix?
Challenged with a couple of rough saw horse brackets I got sent, lamps resulted.
Having a tall bed that ate up a LOT of room, this ladder side table was truly the answer. I adore it to this day!
So done with my son’s remotes strewn all over the living room, they now have a home in this vintage toolbox. Now I just have to train the boy to use it… 🙂
Gotta admit, my proudest DIY of the year for myself was to morph an ugly single car garage into my dream workshop… for FREE! The entire thing was created from curbside finds.
You have to spend a bundle to have something cool – said no junker ever. 🙂
A friend asked me to create a toolbox with her grandfather’s drill… no prob! I love this one better than my original! I truly plan to create a video or ? on how I do these toolboxes, they are my fav thing to make!
Desiring a gate to hide the ugly compost mess, a pallet and two hinges were all that was needed. It’s the perfect companion to the old shed!
If I had room for this set up, this would be in my kitchen as is! I LOVE this vintage cart turned coffee station. Visit the post to see how I use it in my real life kitchen.
This season, I have the 12 Days of Christmas gang to thank.
This event puts the pressure to perform on you hard… and it’s just what I needed to create all these wonderful things. It’s hard to pick a fav because I truly love them all. But I really do love the deer head mantel, Tree Farm sign, and sleigh shelf! Click the link to visit them all in one post.
I’ll do more roundups on my fav inspiring posts, most newsworthy posts, etc. later on too. This year has quite simply been one of the most amazing to date in my life. So visit back to ensure you see it all!
