DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 354

Every Friday, 7 PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific

Happy weekend, all!

Oh my goodness, and what a week it was.

Yesterday, I had my old sofa picked up, sold on a bidding site. That entailed me to:

1. Take a photo shoot of said sofa. But I had to clean (kitty hair) it up first.

2. move the rv… and try to remember how to back it up again.

3. trash the patio furniture, piling it all up to get said sofa out.

4. live with a sofa covered in sheets for a week, to keep the cats off it. In the middle of our main living area of course.

Effort was involved! But there’s always a reward at the end of it, so never forget that.

The new furniture shift enticed me to pick up a faux Christmas tree, and make a new, revamped TV tray. I love a good push in the right direction!

So… let’s see what YOU’VE been up to this past week! Here are some highlights from last week’s party

I LOVE this oversized grocery list dispenser that Angie dreamed up! I’d love to use something like this for my workshop, when quick sketches are desired. Also super cool for a kiddo’s room.

This gorgeous shelf was not a simple buy and hang. It was a true labour of love over WEEKS. And I’m so glad Joy saved it, because this one is a beauty!

I also love that the revamp looks so authentic. There are times to go full tilt, but others where you just need to step away and let the authentic imperfections shine.

Kinda like a good haircut. You shouldn’t be able to tell the diff! Unless you had really bad hair before, of course.

While Laurel sneaks in junky decor under the radar of her hubby (go go go!), we get to enjoy the fruits of her labours. These pallet wood planks became short and sweet vintage signs, she can hide and tuck virtually anywhere! Now to play Where’s Waldo with them… Good luck!

Don’t they look authentic?! Thank you for using my stencils, Laurel!

Anything woodsy gets my attention. So this oversized acorn idea, using a pine cone, did it for me. I’ll take 15 to hang on my Christmas tree, please.

So cool! Way to get your junk on, KariAnne.

And THIS project just goes to show, you do NOT need to buy out a store in order to decorate for Christmas. Ok, unless it’s from a salvage yard.

Junk’in Joan, these need to be mass produced in mini form! Wouldn’t that be cool on a tree?

Fast thinking Lindsay couldn’t bypass her Aunt’s old fence about to be replaced. She put it to work doing something even BETTER!

Gorgeous porch tour. It’s truly hard to believe what the wood looked like before.

I was recently in a store, and noticed shutters attached to a mirror, and thought, that is SO CLEVER. If you wish for a mirror in a room without an obvious presence, this is the answer.

Of course it’s clever. They copied Joan!

Seriously cool idea and LOVE the look!

This post was all about the adorable mini wreaths. But add that to a funnel tree, and you have me doubly wowed. Sweet junk take on Christmas, Diana!

Interchangeable all season TV tray revamp, by Funky Junk Interiors

If you have a TV tray that could use an update, check out this idea on how to revamp it to suit everyday AND for the Christmas season! With just stencils. Fun challenge, and so much prettier than the outdated yellowed before version.

So, what did you make or do this past week? Link up below!

  1. Donna,

    I totally understand the chore of selling/moving something. I just went through the same thing this past week…. one thing leads to another, than another, then another.

    Thanks for the party!

    pinned the image to a bunch of my repurposed boards.

  2. Thank you Donna for including that very old wall shelf in your features this week. Thank you too for DIY 354, always look forward to joining in. Can’t wait to see your new couch etc. – love the duo folding table/tray too.
    Joy

  3. As always, thanks for the party and the features. I always enjoy checking out what you’ve been up to during the week and I’m loving your tv table. I have a set of 4 that rarely make an appearance but maybe it’s time for red striping and a stencil. Adorable!
