Welcome to DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 497

Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific

Hello junker friends!

This past week I’ve been buried nose deep into my computer designing. Right after the NEW fall stencils were released, it was time to get busy with Christmas!

This process takes time. But it’s all in the name of unique and new gear to DIY with so I’m really excited to deck the halls with new toys!

I also visited my Dr. and have some additional interesting things to share… the info keeps piling up! But I know some of you are invested in this topic with our changing selves and what we need in our latter years, so I’ll share what’s new next week.

Take a charming tour through a butterfly sanctuary, located near Niagara Falls!

While I was busy pounding keys, I shared a wonderful adventure that I found when I was in the Niagara region last fall that I haven’t shared yet! It’s a visit to a charming butterfly sanctuary that was as warm as Hawaii inside! The tour includes a short video so you can see what I saw!

So, thanks for bringing over some awesome DIY last weekend… I am missing my paint and tools!

Here’s some amazing highlights from last week’s party

Nope, this is not a coaster from a Halloween store. This is homespun from something you don’t see every day at a thrift store! So clever, and they really look amazing! A wonderful tutorial comes with this post.

  1. Thank you very much, Donna, for featuring my DIY industrial table! Woot woot, can’t wait to see your new Christmas stencil line. Have a great weekend 🙂 This girl has a date with a vintage sideboard. LOL

  2. what fun ideas! (and thanks to those stars, i’m actually thinking about some *gasp* holiday projects now!) 😉 what a wonderful community of creative minds you’ve gathered together here, Miss Donna… it’s a joy to participate when i can! ~ deb

    • So glad you do Deb! Love what you bring over. And I know… those stars are so on point for right now! I’m ready to bring the Christmas boxes upstairs myself but I’ve decided to deep clean this week first. Let the fun begin!
