Welcome to DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 547
Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific
What. A. Week. I hired a roofer to replace the roof on my patio, so my homework was to drop everything and get the ceiling framework painted before he heads over here.
Egads… talk about deadlines working or what! I’ve been wanting to clean up that roof for years, but with nothing pushing me, it sat. So if ya need something done, hire help! That’ll getcha moving.
But right before I started my mini painting marathon, I shared a new addition to the shed….
Building a barn door for a rustic shed by Funky Junk Interiors
The shed immediately came to life right after adding that cutie pie barn door! This post also offers a mini finished tour. I’ll be adding more details while I deck it out for fall, so hopefully that will be shared soon!
Biking through Island 22 and Cheam Lake Wetlands by Funky Junk Interiors
I also shared my recent finds of 2 new-to-me bike trails in my area… and this picture was taken right in between the two. I LOVE this scene… but the bike trails were even more surprising. Visit the post for the full tour plus video… the latter is a pretty outstanding spot!
Thanks to all my painting in a hurry, I didn’t do as much online reading as I normally do, so I was SO pleasantly surprised to find these amazing features just WAITING on the blog from last week’s party…

Thanks Sara, I’m itchin’ to get out there this weekend and work on it. Good weather = no excuses! Hopefully will have something to share on it next week!
I think I need a canteen in my life, and I am happy to report that it has been two weeks and my mums are still alive. Previously I have had a two week limit so it must be the crate, which thanks you for its feature.
SUCH a good idea, Bliss! Chimes in perfectly with them… and we get to learn more of your letter shadowing secrets…
Lov’n all the features! Thanks to Sarah, now I need to add a flannel canteen to my fall vignette. LOL Have a great weekend, Donna!
