Welcome to DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 451
Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific
I just got in after a very exciting yet kind of difficult day.
Long time readers will remember my story of me driving past my childhood farm (read full series HERE) to find one barn had been taken down. Gasping, I made my way to the owner and asked if I could have a little bit of the wood as a keepsake. He obliged!
But just today, I got another call with my brother telling me our main barn was now down and we had only 2 days to go get a few extra mementos before it was all gone completely. GASP! As you can imagine, I dropped everything and ran.
I will blog about it, but for now, I have it saved to my Insta Stories highlight under The Barn HERE
It was tough… but at the same time, I was so very grateful we were able to obtain a little bit of something so important to us.
I also recently returned from a work trip in Toronto that morphed into a pretty epic 2-week stay!
But first things first, Toronto Part 1 HERE shares where I first ended up by fluke, in one of the most charming districts imaginable. Vintage, nature, water, junkin’ with friends and more…
As luck would have it, before my trip, I had quickly made a few accessories to bring along that I didn’t have time to blog about….
This was a cute cardboard banner I had on hand that accidentally morphed into leather! Very cool effect! This post also includes some pretty neat wooden dollar store revamps… who knew the dollar store could look so rustically cool?! 🙂
And then there is you… here are some pretty fab highlights from last weekend…
(working on commentary below now… this post was a little tight for time going up due to our day!)
This cheese box side table has it all imo… it is rustic, trendy, modern, and vintage. Goodness I love this thing! I need one, that is all.
Love vintage sleighs but don’t wish to pay the high price for one? Here’s how you can make one with pallet wood! It was designed around a vintage design. So very cool!
While a rustic crate can never go wrong no matter what it looks like or how it’s used, turning it into a card file drawer with the smallest of details is super cool! Love the Christmas twist too!
I’m not certain what all these wonderful mushrooms are made from, however this collection is over the top delightful! Karin uses this display each fall. So so charming isn’t it?!
And I had to search up what an etagere was. It is noted as a piece of furniture with a number of open shelves for displaying.
All I know is, this etagere made from all kinds of mis-matched galvanized pieces was super cool and the outcome so incredibly lovely! ADORE the height! Very unique vignette for the beautiful outdoors.
I love fall displays, however this pumpkin seed packet picture has such a cool vintage vibe! This post offers the printable so you can make one too!
This iconic look on a desk is so unexpected, yet so vibrantly cool! I love that it brings a modern edge to an old piece.
