DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 365

Every Friday, 7 PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific

It’s the weekend! Yay!

And what a week it’s been in our region. We just got over major snow and ice storms, shutting down schools for pretty much a week. Now today, fierce winds, which can be pretty dangerous. But good to dissolve all the snow without flooding!

And right when I was wishing I wouldn’t have to run to so many appointments, so I could actually get some work done… so be careful what you wish for! 🙂

And that I did. I’ve been playing with a new stencil design I’m pretty stoked about, (more soon!), and I even made a project! Whoop! I even managed to clean out 2 closets. YES!

But I did spend a lot of time shovelling snow too. Hope to show you a post next week on all this crazy weather stuff. It sure was pretty!

So… let’s party! Here’s some incredible highlights from last weekend’s party…

More often than not, Jane does these stencilled projects that feel like I did them. She’s totally got the ‘crate look’ down!

But what’s even more intriguing with this sweet tote is her mad skills stencilling over that handle. What?? I also love that the tote wears a different message on the other side. Fun!

I’d fill it with fresh cut flowers on one side, and the salt and pepper shakers in the other if I had it right now. 

I need to make that tote… stencil info is inside the blog post.

Did you hear me GASP from across the land when I first laid eyes on this fabulous shelving idea? They are gorgeous bare, never mind staged in some beautiful way. So clever!

I’m so all about organizing in unique ways, and this one ranks right up there. Simple pipe clips. Who woulda thought? Love how they were painted out in black, giving them kind of a wrought iron look!

Raise your hand if you’ve ever wished you could land some vintage grain sacks, but whenever you do, you choke at the price.

Sarah figured out a way around that. Check out this post, and you’ll be throwing old curtains into your shopping buggy pronto! So pretty! Love the stamped variation too!

I am personally all OVER this project! The beauty of a crate teamed up with worn denim? To put my feet on at the end of the day? That even hides stuff? This needs to happen. Beautifully done! It’s beyond me why furniture companies are still making ottomans in full fabric mode. This idea has rustic charm!

Wanting to put some wood scraps to good use, this rustic heart became a thing! But coming up with 3 ways to use it was even more fun! The last idea is all about my fav bev of choice…

  1. DIgging snow which has 3″ of ice underneath is not for the weak, plus backing the car out over the piles of ice and snow from shovelling and street driving was no picnic. I am sure it has been 20 years since the Lower Mainland had snow like this.

    Thanks Donna for DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 365. Always appreciated.


  2. Wow sounds like you had some crazy weather! I am happy to get to link up this week, thanks for hosting Donna! Can’t wait to see your new stencil design!

  3. your comment and feature of my pantry tote lifted me up…it was one of those days…thank you!

    i need to make your heart…just love it! figuring out where I could put one in our home!

  4. Donna,
    Did I hear a gasp across the border?! Thanks so much for featuring my ironing board shelves! Keeping one’s closet clean is challenge enough, it might as well be inspirational, right? I’ve always loved vintage ironing boards with their graphics and weathered wood, and I do admit it’s hard to cover all that beauty up with clothes, but the combo of function with beauty is my favorite! Thanks for hosting…I’m pinning!

  5. Wow is so crazy to think that you’re shovelling snow and here in Australia we are experiencing a heat wave of 45`C temperatures!

    Thank you so much for hosting and hope you have a wonderful week Donna! 🙂
