Welcome to DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 432
Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific
We have been enjoying a mini heat wave on BC’s west coast which is so unlike us! You know summer is approaching here when you can take off for a trail ride on the bike and not feel chilled once entering the forest! I LOVE the feeling of freedom that evokes!
This past week I did share my newest toy. Isn’t she a beaut?! After MUCH deliberation, I chose this miter saw for some pretty slick features which I share in the post. And now of course I want to redo my workshop so it’s just as pretty as that miter saw…
I meant to write a LOT more. I had big plans. Everything was going great. Until I got tied up on the computer for a couple of days (it happens). But hey, I took some pictures…
So you may see the odd photo of home while I am away starting next week.
However I’m really hoping to just write about where I am instead… yes, I am jumping on a plane for some much needed R&R and a little soul searching to my most fav happy place in the whole wide world. Any guesses?!
It’ll be a long stretch, so all my feeds will most certainly change over for a spell. Hope you can handle the beauty! I consider Maui my 2nd home and will be portraying it as such.
I’m also taking some stencils along in case the creative bug hits, or let nature speak up and try something new. I’m already plotting out a mini lanai makeover (like I did HERE) since I plan to spend a LOT of time in ‘my outdoor living room’.
I also hope to keep these weekend party posts going too! I know how much you miss them when I stop. And goodness knows I will need something productive to do I’m sure. The odd one may get missed, (forgive me if that happens…) however my plans are to not miss.
I also want to dig deep and share a little more of why I am there. New surroundings pull something special out of my soul, and I am hopeful the length of my stay will get me to that peaceful place I am striving towards.
Ya know, these little mini recap ramblings on these party posts are pretty therapeutic so I am starting something new instead of putting them here. It’s called RAMBLINGS which I will share each week. They are a bunch of these types of musings all thrown into one blog post. Because it’s seriously hard to stop nattering when I do this, and this IS a link party after all! 🙂 Ramblings will start next week.
Instead, I’ll attempt to ramble about something DIY in these posts.

SQUIRREL! Back to you! Here are some pretty amazing highlights from last week’s party. I certain you will agree!
This photo took me rushing back to when I went on a trip with my parents through the Enchanted Forest in Oregon. (I think it was there?) This project is beyond creative… it’s mind blowing. Check out the before!
This charming window boxed old window is captivating. I want THOSE kinds of windows on my own house! And am also itching to create shades with Buffalo Check on them. What a punch of happy!
Stencil details are inside this post.
I love bricks. However they just got way more enchanting being custom made WITH stamped messages! Can you imagine the possibilities here?
Got a 2×4 handy? Create these farmhouse styled instant art shelves with a couple of brackets added! LOVE this look and the simplicity is absolutely striking. I could see these shelves used for plates, plants or furniture paint storage! How would you use them?
If you are as much of a nature lover as I am, this bedroom will have you feeling like you are on a grand mountain trail adventure. LOVING the bark planter as part of that wall gallery! And check out those beds…
Stop! I can’t handle this extreme cuteness. Coolest shelf idea EVER.
Only Sarah could convince me to possibly pick up Tupperware from a thrift store… Check out how she made this veggie platter into a rotating hardware bin! Fabulous.
Get ready to drop dead. These vintage chairs are to DIE for. I love the glazed finish and the special flower details. And the story behind finding a 2nd matching chair… I mean, what are the chances?!
