Welcome to DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 551
Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific
I honestly don’t even know what I did with myself this week. I started 2 posts which didn’t get completed…
Oh wait. Yes. I started designing Christmas stencils. And those days always lead to, “Oh, I’ll just spend a couple hours…” and end up staying up late into the night forgetting everything else. Tis the season! So know? Some cool and fun stuff is coming! I can’t wait to crack out the paint and get some projects done up!
But I did do a very unexpected and cool project right before I buried myself into computerworld… thank goodness, huh?!
A crate I had in my stash got morphed into a hummingbird feeder heater since we got it with a big storm. I felt sorry for the little guys trying to eat while spinning away on that thing! This sure helped. It cuts the wind and helps to keep their nectar toasty warm! Yay for that
So… ready to see what everyone else has been busy creating? Here’s some pretty unique up-cycled projects from last week’s party…

Don’t these pillows have the coolest vintage-vibe? But you don’t have to even grab a sewing machine to achieve these! Learn Susan’s cheats on making pillows her no-sew way by visiting the link!
This beautiful milk can turned planter didn’t always look like this! Wait until you see the before! And I can’t wait to see the many afters to follow. What a beauty, huh?
