Welcome to DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 452

Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific

Hello all!

Well… I have had quite a week.

I received a call from my brother that we had to act fast. The big barn came down at my childhood farm and we had 2 days to salvage what we desired. I’m sharing our bittersweet finds in a post and video.

Aside from that, I’ve been busy designing Christmas stencils (coming soon!) and got my hair done. But I also had a few new brainstorms for Christmas so I’m hoping to make my way to a thrift store AND hardware store to find what I’m after. Crossing fingers my quirky idea works out!

Have you started Christmas decorating yet? What running theme are you going with this year?

And here’s what you’ve been up to lately with last weekend’s link party highlights…

These tin cans had me at rust. However, would you believe these tin cans started out as new?! This post successfully shows you how to rust anything!

Time to round up that vintage kitchenware and make use of all those fabulous quirky shapes, because this turkey-bot is adorable! Wonder if I could come up with a deer head for Christmas! Those feet could be antlers…

How to turn an acorn bowl into an acorn? This is what they should be made for in the first place, don’t you think? So genius…

At first glance, I needed in on this paint treatment, but that’s not what it is!

What a clever way to use a stencil! Visit the post for full stencil and tutorial instructions.

What were once two mirrors are now chalkboard holiday signs. Adorable! Love the use of chalk instead of paint for a nice change. And aren’t those frames so perfect for this?

  1. Thank you so much Donna for featuring both my Christmas Gnomes and tree. I use love upcycling things into Christmasdecorations this time of year. Have a fabulous weekend.

  2. What a nice surprise to see my kitchen Christmas tree included in your features this week, thank you! This week I shared how I repurposed a big mail box to hold a simple Christmas tree and used a vintage chicken feeder to create a Christmas vignette on the kitchen counter. Enjoy your week end!

  3. Oh, to see that barn in a heap just makes me cry:( Just don’t want these beauties disappearing! Glad you could salvage some pieces; I’m sure that was kind of overwhelming, because you only have room for so much! I still have the barn doors from my bro-in-law’s barn from years ago. They’re pretty shot, but make for good photo backdrops. Have a great weekend, Donna!

  4. That must have been bittersweet salvaging wood from your childhood barn. Sad to see it go but loads of project potential with sentimental value. Thank you so much Donna, for including my holiday chalkboards with your features this week – much appreciated!
