Welcome to DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 535


Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific

Hi all!

I’m pretty proud of myself. This past week, I did a long overdue project that I didn’t even know I could do… but thanks to my screen door project previously… this happened…

How to make an easy DIY wood window screen for tricky windows by Funky Junk Interiors

I had one of these impossible two-handled windows and with all other failed attempts to get it outfitted with a screen, I came up with a door-style instead! And made it for FREE!

So if you have a problematic window, maybe this easy idea will work for you!

Not so junky this round! But hacking at home repair projects has been a big focus this summer which will continue.

Upcoming stuff…


I’ve also been further updating my garage and will hopefully share a pretty cool shelving idea from there next week… if I stay off the bike trails long enough to gitter done that is…

Speaking of, a new trail extension has been completed so I can now do this amazing FULL trail loop with no repeat runs. I took beautiful pics during one run so I hope to share that with you soon too!

I’m also teaming up with my neighbour to complete something pretty special in between both our houses… and hired a painter to get some work done that’s taken over 5 years to complete… so as you can see, it’s full-out productive mode here these days!

So how are you doing? Feeling super productive or trying to find some vacay downtime close to home?

I know some of you are cranking out creativity and here’s proof! Through some amazing features from last week’s party

I don’t know about you, but seeing all of Kim’s junky wood creations each week has me wanting to try a few myself, thanks to a summery fish this round!

This whimsical mobile has a secret… it’s suspended from something that offers air movement, making it even MORE magical! Deb explains it best… click the link to learn how it was made and how it performs!

  1. I’m always impressed with your home improvement skills, I need to spend more attention to my home. Thank you so much for featuring my faux moths, they were fun to make. Have a great weekend,

  2. We’re pretty much in the same boat as you, getting projects done around the house while staying close to home. We’ve painted all the interior walls and did mini makeovers in each room. It ended up switching our perspective from prepping to sell to ReLoving our home again.

    • I know exactly what you mean Marie. Pretending to be prepping it to sell (even if it is for me) helps motivate me to keep going though… I wasn’t otherwise! WHY is that?! haha

  3. thank you so much for including my wire lampshade mobile in your feature, Donna… and you’re right, it really does bring a lil’ bit of magic (Disney and otherwise!) into my studio.

    i have to offer my thanks to Beth for sharing that DARLING idea of the ‘house on a map’ – it’s the PERFECT housewarming gift for my daughter (incidentally, named Beth!) and her family, who just moved cross-country from Seattle to Tennessee. i’m sourcing a map of her new town today!

    i just love the ideas that so many creative people come up with and share in your weekly party – thank you for providing this opportunity for everyone to share. ~ deb

  4. Thanks for the feature Donna!
    I love your ingenuity. I’m sure you are gonna love having that screen window 🙂
