Welcome to DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 392

Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific

Hey all!

So nice to have you back. I am hoping you are safe, dry and have a few extra prayers to share with our precious Texan neighbours.Don’t mind if I join you. Just feeling deeply saddened by so much devastation. Sometimes I feel guilty that I’m safe and sound in comparison. Still deciding where to give. What have you chosen?

This past week with our hot then cool again weather, I’ve gravitated indoors and out without accomplishing anything to full completion. Changing walls to white-white upstairs is looking good! Covering up my septic access, not so much. 

Ah well. I did a little story telling this week regardless.

First up, I found a gorgeous new trail on my way home from an appt one day which started off with grumbling I didn’t have my bike. But what you see will show you exactly why I changed my mind. Also sharing a little heath update.

I am also taking you back to my cabin in the woods stay where I found the local falls, and a super cool old school theatre that was a total shock. Such a fun little town to visit!

In other news, I upgraded my phone yesterday to a 7 plus (whooooop! and $ouch) and am now shopping for a slightly bigger TV for the bedroom, because my son wants my little one. It’s all good… the new one will be slightly bigger AND get Netflix which is even better…  always a silver lining I say!

Anyway, thanks for sharing your gorgeous DIYS last weekend. Here’s a few highlights to highlight your weekend…

I don’t know about you, however this photo makes me want to rip out my kitchen upper cabinets, and stack or hang crates instead. Such an easy AND beautiful fix to gain a little more space without building a thing!

Just in case you haven’t fallen in love with buffalo checks (with a stencil) yet, pretty sure this simple and gorgeous tulip crate project will do it!

It’s subtle, yet offers so much to this gorgeous fall vignette, don’t you think?

Full stencil details are also in the post.

Why stick with standard schmandard frames when you can use clipboards and mandala stencils instead?

So easy to change photos out, and really makes one gorgeous and unique statement!

Dear those of you getting rid of old file cabinets… pick up some pin legs instead! Such a cool industrial-retro feel!

Just in case you were wondering what kind of pillow could bring sunshine into your interiors, this would be it!

How I just LOVE the texture the rustic fabrics and buttons create!

I’ve been debating on a new sewing machine… this is inching me just a little closer to that decision…

Maybe it’s time to just call messy carving pumpkins a total wrap… because I sure love this idea more! Adore the twine and leaf detail.

What lucky shoes to have such a cute home, complete with their own garden… such a fun and useful front porch idea! Where would you use this?

Oh red cross design, you may be paying me a visit soon.

  1. Hi Donna, Thank you for sharing! Even though I have a gazzillion pumpkins (which I have not taken out from storage) I need to do the glass pumpkins. I love them!
    Happy Week end!

  2. I too am praying for all the people hit by Harvey. What kind of hurricane hits once and then does it again? I feel so bad for them. I try to put myself in others’ shoes and I can’t wrap my head around loosing a family member and not knowing whether they went to another shelter or perished! I would go crazy myself. We’re going to donate funds through our church (Episcopal) to their Disaster and Relief Fund. The Red Cross seems to be getting the necessities to people as swiftly as possible too.

    On a happier note, I love the Fall Welcome sign posted by Organized Clutter. I might have to make one of those for myself!

  3. Thanks, again, for hosting today’s party. The creativity of so many is amazing. Must say that I am especially “taken” by the bottle buoys. Nifty.

    Fixer Upper’s Joanna Gaines is donating all proceeds from the sale of some shirts they are selling, specifically for the hurricane victims. I have not checked into how the funds will be distributed, but the Gaines seem an upright Christian family and very transparent and I feel comfortable with them in charge.

    Have a great weekend.

  4. Wow, love the kitchen crates, photos on clip boards and sunflower pillow. I want all of it! Thanks for sharing.????????

    • Oh Jane… I LOVE the subtle stencil touch on this one! So perfect in every way! Inspired to get out that Buffalo Check a little more these days… look out world! haha Thank-you for your amazing creativity and doing that stencil so proud!

  5. Hey Donna,
    I sure understand that guilt feeling concerning Hurricane Harvey and I’m right in the middle of the devastation. Thankfully, I and my little town of Nederland weathered the storm well. But neighboring towns on all sides haven’t been as fortunate. They are still dealing with being under water or don’t have city water because of the flooding of water. My guilt had me getting out and doing for others what I could…bringing back the balance.

    I don’t ever say it really but wanted you to know, I look forward to your feature parties…it is part of my Saturday morning wake up routine to check it out. It was especially nice to look at some beautiful things of creativity after looking at so much devastation this past week. There is hope in the creating…there is hope in the making…and our area has hope as it takes the act of salvaging to a different level of redo and will come out shining…just like a vintage file cabinet or bottle buoys.

    Thank you for your giving and for sharing the inspiration and for what I saw in each creation…a message of hope.

    • Laurie, what lovely insight! I’m also so grateful this link party event completes your weekend. Link parties are a little old fashioned on blogs these days, yet my readers have not even gave me one thumbs up when I mulled over stopping them many times over. So glad I took the time to ask. Thank-you for appreciating the bloggers that link up each weekend! They sure inspire me too.
