DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 350
Every Friday, 7 PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific
This past week, the wind has nearly blown off all the gorgeously coloured grapevine leaves before I got a decent photo shoot this year. It was just that fast.
But I didn’t let the rain and wind shut me down. Friend Corinne and I hit Granny and Grumpa’s Antiques for a day of junk shopping. But this is no normal store… think BARNS filled with YEARS of collections. You’ll love this tour.
Also brought to life were two new projects chiming in with 2 new stencil designs… if you wanna live in a FARMHOUSE, HERE is how I do it, and if you detest doing LAUNDRY as much as I do, maybe this cute laundry hanging station will make you feel otherwise.
So! Let’s move back to you… here’s a few amazing highlights that inspired me from last weekend’s party…
Silly me. I just figured out what to do with my collection of too many chairs. That I already gave away. KariAnne, your wall art quirk inspires me so!
And so do your millions of itty bitty pumpkins piled up in that super cool toolbox that I now must make.
So many farmhouse twists to love here.
Sports fanatic baseball styled fall pumpkin vignette, by The Magic Brush
Blame Jennifer that I’m not tuning into any sports on TV nor in person. This gorgeous sports inspired fall front porch vignette makes me feel like I’m already there!
That baseball pumpkin though…
DIY Vintage lights from baking tins, by Kreativ K
My fav thing about our tinsel covered Christmas tree growing up were those massive light reflectors. But they are hard to find today.
Here’s a way to recreate that look with your modern mini lights and baking tins! So inspired…
Halloween lantern from upcycled candle decor, by Sadie Seasongoods
View this post, and you will see what this charming Halloween lantern was made from. You see these all the time in thrift stores… but now you probably won’t!
This is a genius idea for all seasons. I’m visioning using real leaves and parchment paper…
Julia just took me back to my sewing days. Scan over this one slowly… those feet! But do visit the post, you’ll see things you won’t notice in this picture, which will delight you!
Fall wheat drawn chalkboard, lined with the perfect pumpkin vignette, by Finding Home Farms
I was struggling on what to call this photo. I fell in love with this shot, due to the oh so easy wheat picture drawn on that charming, rustic chalkboard. And how the vignette below was absolute perfection.
But as you scroll through this post, you’re going to see plenty of warm, woodsy touches you will adore. Also smitten with the feathery type wreath and chalkboard on the fireplace mantel! Beautiful tour that’s worth your click over!
p.s. I need more pumpkins and cutting boards.
Give Thanks stencilled pallet wood fall sign, by The Magic Brush
I’ve always known a pallet was a ‘sign’ for a good time, but glad Jennifer is proving that point. This easy, and gorgeous fall sign makes such a statement for a front entry!
No need to build from scratch when you can already be half way there from the start!
Feedbag and pallet wood ottoman upcycle, by Scavenger Chic
Stop right there, ugly ottoman. You are about to get a major genius makeover at Joan’s Junk Salon!
No, I mean really. This revamp is different. Things were ADDED to an existing ottoman, which makes this one a breeze to implement! Said, as I eye up an ugly plush brown thing covered in cat hair next to me…
Joan’s Junk Salon… that’s pretty catchy.
Jaw drop at two things here… first? Thank goodness for broken drawers, because shelves are cooler!
Next… this two toned beauty just stole my surprised heart. Wood and dark paint teamed up is going on my own must try list. It’s like biting into a deep dark chocolate cake, only to find a layer of hot fudge! If that even makes sense.
Does anyone even read these crazy musings?
Being one for quirky window treatments, curtains were set aside to make way for a rustic sign, with junk hung dried flowers. Any excuse to hang junk on the walls I say…
I don’t like doing laundry, but it just got a little more fun, with the delightful distraction of reclaimed wood, pipes and crates.
Super easy build that would come in handy in even an entryway, closet or bedroom.
