DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 565
Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific
The promise of spring is attempting to arrive! Or so I tell myself whenever the sun peeks over the mountain. I’m craving the outdoors so much, I’ve been carting my AM coffee to my freshly painted downstairs photo studio to allow whatever sun there is to fully shine all over me. It feels so uplifting!
My productivity wasn’t as high as I would have loved this week, but I have been working on the computer designing new stencils, and I did manage to hang some new sheet curtains in the photo studio which I’ll share more about next week!
But my biggest hiccup of the week was an unexpected house that came up for sale. Working through the ‘is this the one?’ really threw a wrench into everyday living! But as it stands, all the plans fell through and I am relieved! My house is SO not ready to sell, so all this served as quite an eye opener on what needs to be done and what I’m actually looking for should there be a next time.
I did manage to get one project posted last week though…
During Christmas I created a Hot Cocoa appliance garage that was due for an everyday update! And here it is, now proudly celebrating my beloved coffee while hiding all my coffee gear at the same time! Love this thing, and it’s easy to make!
So while I work towards getting back to the land of the living with more creative projects, let’s revisit some of these super cool highlights from last week’s upcycled projects post…

If you’re in need of a counter or even a table, here’s an easy workbench made with posts and 2x4s! Oh how I adore this solid wood workbench! It’s easy to build too! Visit the link for the full instructions!
If you’re still stuck in frozen land somewhere, here’s a lovely way to decorate your front porch… with frozen flowers! Isn’t this lovely? Brings back memories of when my brother use to make a variation with real candles inside that he’d bring indoors to burn! Visit this blog post link so you can make some too!
These endearing little snow buddies that celebrate winter in a fresh new way are made from a variety of things you likely have sitting around at home. So sweet! Visit the blog post tutorial to learn the basics, then go full tilt with your own take!
If you’re a bird lover, perhaps a mosaic birdhouse is something you’d like to give a go! Isn’t this gorgeous? And what a precious way to hold onto memory plates or platters!
This post doesn’t share a tutorial, however it’s worth a peek to see other views of this spectacular house as well as a nifty idea with old books!
Once spring or summer rolls around, so can this vintage buggy serving as a plant base or vase! How fun and unexpected! Visit this link on Facebook to learn more on this and what else Kim creates!
