Welcome to DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 397
Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific
Hello and welcome back! It’s time for the best weekend junk in the land once again!
So, next week I’m taking off to the land of all Hawaiian things. Squeal! Due to my shorter than usual stay, I’d like to attempt to minimize my time online, so I ask your opinion… shall we postpone the link party until mid November until I return, or would you like to see the link up without (or few) features? I’m thinking of throwing up the link at the very least… thoughts?
This past week has seemed to be about embracing fall. Our weather has dramatically changed, with this one huge windstorm that swept through our little valley. Not only was raking in order, but my buddy Walter paid a visit once again and made my ho hum shrubs into works of art! Feels so good to have the yard ready for winter 100%!
And it wasn’t until this particular bike ride through my beloved trails that I realized I needed to quit wishing away what was right before me. This post features amazing fall forest captures while offering a little therapy 101 thrown in for good measure. If you are fighting the new season, this read is for you.
I also made something!
Buffalo Check and Plaid Shirt placemats for a fall porch tablescape by Funky Junk Interiors
Before the weather turned completely, I ‘falled’ up my porch with cozy touches. Patterning up two plain placemats made all the charming difference! The tour showcases fall and everyday.
And here’s what you brought over from last weekend’s link party…
Painted gradient dresser treatment by Grillo Designs
I can’t tell you how much I adore this paint treatment. Adore the deep wood tone against the cream. Stunning effect!
Pallet wood barrel top tray by Scavenger Chic
Love barrel parts? Here’s how to make your own… with pallet wood. Genius, huh?
Stenciled Farmhouse shelf by Organized Clutter
An outdated shelf gets one very up to date transformation, farmhouse style! Love the black on cream. Striking!
Stencil info is inside the post.
Candle sconce wall book shelves by Organized Clutter
You know those neat shelves made out of books you see? THIS IDEA gives you the same look for much less DIY. So smart.
Map keychain rocks by Pillar Box Blue
Thank-you. I’m now going to collect a rock from Hawaii and plant its own map on it for my own Hawaiian souvenir. LOVE the look and functionality.
Vintage stereo bookshelf by Kammy’s Korner
What standard bookshelf? I’ll take this unique beauty any day!
Christmas window candles go Halloween by Sadie Seasongoods
Spookin’ great idea! Those DIY candle drips are over the top brilliant!
Vintage junk chandelier Christmas ornaments by Homeroad
Why pull out the standard schmandard Christmas boxes when you can strip down a chandy and raid your junk pile instead? Because combining the two apparently turns into Christmas magic!
Susan sells these, click through to check out her store!
Fall wool blanket bunting by Lora B
Who else just wants to go wrap these around your neck and pounce into a big pile of leaves? Aren’t they so incredibly cozy looking?!
What did you make this past week? Link up below!
*New Up-cycled projects only please! Repeats from the past and new crafts will be deleted. *

Have a great time in Hawaii hun you totally deserve it. Oh & don’t forget to pick me up on the way there lol ?
Donna, I think every blogger is entitled to some off the grid downtime so my vote is, for your sake, bring it back in November and enjoy Hawaii!
Thank you for another nice party. Take the time off, you deserve it. Enjoy Hawaii.
Thanks for hosting!
SOOOOOOO in love with the porch quilt! How creative. And nothing says “home” and “cozy” like a quilt.
Thanks for the party and enjoy every second in Hawaii 🙂
Donna, thanks for featuring my farmhouse shelf and the bookshelves! There were so many great projects this week!
Thanks for featuring my Wool Blanket Bunting, Donna! I’m so happy you’re getting to escape to your favorite place:) Do whatever is easier for the party-we’ve all gotta take a break once in awhile-we’ll all come back; we love your party!
Hello everyone! Thank you for your visits, and your thoughts on the party!
I’m leaning towards the link up party right on my Facebook page next weekend! So get ready to bring your links over yonder next week!
What a great group of projects! Thanks!!
I have linked up my annual costume. I think it fits your criteria as almost everything was repurposed to make it. The dress was once an old linen tablecloth.
Thank you for hosting!
