Who I Am

I’m Donna (in the pink), author of the blog Funky Junk Interiors, where I share how I decorate my home with salvaged finds. I’m a parent of a teen son and 2 tuxedo cats, residing in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

I currently blog from home where I also run my online store, and occasionally travel to speaking events or conferences, inspiring readers and wholesalers how to create with the stencils and salvaged architecture.

Why Sign Stencils?

My past career was a 22 year sign veteran and graphic designer by trade. I specialized in logo design, creating store signage, vehicle lettering and pin-striping, and full fire engine stripes and graphics.

When I started creating vintage looking signs for my home on the blog, readers asked if I could guide them to replicate the designs.

This proved tricky. Not all had the high end sign equipment nor years of design experience to make it all work.

Hence, the idea of the stencils became the perfect answer! They offered all the features readers desired, giving everyone the ability to create DIY signs with professional results in minutes!

I have enjoyed seeing all of the wonderful things you have created and it had lead me straight to my garage with a plan to my grandparents farm! Spring in Oregon has giving me the creating bug.

  5. Hi Donna,
    Love your stuff! Do you have a physical location and where are you located?
    Thank you for sharing all your lovely found stuff redoes!

    • Hey Diane! I live in British Columbia, Canada, but I’m not a storefront. I’m just a blogger doing my thang in my own home. I’ve changed up the post above to better reflect that info. Thanks for the heads up… that was needed! πŸ™‚

  6. Morning -Just found your great site and read how to make an old sign and your crate stairs. Love em! You mentioned an ebook – with details? Is that available – if so – sign me up. Thanks for sharing your creative talents. PS – found you from the Graphics Fairy -what a talented goup of ladies!! Thanks, Toni

  7. You mention that you have a stenciling kit. Where is it; how much is it; can I buy it (can you tell I’m eager to create some signs too)?

    Awaiting your answer in Ottawa with old barn boards just a stones-throw away.

    P.S,: I love the design of your site. Did you design it yourself?


    • Wanda, so sorry for my procrastination. The ebook on Making Old Signs is not yet complete.

      Re: the blog design, I took pictures of it, then had artist Bethany via B Spoke put it all together and guru Josh Leuze code it. It takes a village… haha!

  8. Donna, I like your stuff and your web site.
    I was wondering who did you site and who does your hosting?
    I am considering doing something similar to your site.
    I pretty cool and down to earth.

    Thanks Collier

    • Hey Collier! My site was totally custom built from scratch. I dreamed up what I wanted my site to look like, then took photos of the elements you see and sent it to my designer B Spoke. She further enhanced and designed the elements and she had her guru Josh Leuze upload it into a workable WordPress blog.

      I’m currently hosted by WE Engine.

  9. are you currently selling the burlap coffee bean sack window shades?

    i’m in the U.S….found you on pinterest πŸ˜‰

  11. i found your site off another one but would like to see what you come up with… thanks for sharing ideas.

  14. Great site! Love your ideas with the wood pallets and windows! I too have just discovered Annie Sloan paint over the past few months and have been a painting crazy woman! I have had so much fun….along with your site the ideas are endless! Thank you!!

  15. Hi Donna,
    I’m so jealous of the Canadian and American Junkers!
    You have so much interesting junk over there.
    I love your website and it sparks my creativeness every time I see it, thankyou.
    Here, “down under”, I can’t seem to get my hands on much great junk, oh, well, I’ll keep looking.
    Keep up the good work, Donna!

    Greetings from Australia, Jane.

  16. I LOVE your blog and so many of your projects! I too live in a wee town in British Columbia and am always excited to hear of places you have “junked” that I could actually go to! So much of the time other bloggers are so far removed from our locale that in my lifetime I would never get to visit all their fantastic “sources” You had a post on quite awhile ago with a tall metal rack with metal bins in it that was fantastic and I have long looked for one like it (to no avail) It was sold when you saw it but where was that fantastic “store” located?
    Keep up the great work and plethora of wonderful junking ideas!!

  17. Just found your wonderful site and you have made some very amazing things. I was wondering if you made the twig garland on the tree’s in the black box? Such a great idea. I would forgo a real tree to get this look anytime.

  18. Luv your stuff. I live not far from you in white rock. Was out your way today looking at the gandma and grumpa’s place. I do what you do, but you seem more prolific. Go Girl Thanks for the inspiration, patti

  19. Hey Donna,

    Follow your blog and am always amazed at your creativity. While walking my dogs, have come across this old truck hood (probably 1950’s)at an abandoned farm – any thoughts on something cool to do with it- I wish I could get it to you, I know you would do something cool…

  20. I love your stuff. I must confess I have the junk bug too and I’ve always loved to think outside the box for the purpose of getting long life out of materials. I love old things in fact I bought an old 1910 Victorian house that my husband lovingly call our money pit. keep on doing what you do and i’ll keep up here in Corning CA.

  21. please keep me in the loop..would love to know when ur book is available cuz not only am I a junk junkie but I love books too!

  22. Love your work. It is so unique. Waste not want not. Looking forward to more pictures. Keep creating. Thank you, can’t wait………………..

  23. Please include me in your list for your shop when it gets going. I am so excited to see your talents for sale!!! WOOHOO <3

  24. Do you give instructions on how to make pallet furniture such as couch? Love your site.
    Where do you get gunny sackslap?

  25. Hey Girlfriend, I thought i was the only one who loved junk and junking….thought there was something wrong with me and now I know I’m not alone. You are such an inspiration. You have given me some ideas as to what to do with stuff I’ve collected over the years. Keep it up my friend.
    By the way, I live below you in the great state of Virginia, USA.

    Happy Winter,

  26. Hi Donna,
    I discovered your blog through Pinterest. I realized that the pins I liked kept saving were all from you! I love re-making my garage sale finds, family hourded antiques and finding new ways to display them. My Country Junk style is nothing like any of my friends, so they all think I am nuts! Thank you for the inspiration!

  27. Looking for your ebook on making your own stencils??
    LOVE your stairs, signs….well everything!! Great work!!
    Let me know when your ebook will be available….please?!!

  28. Thanks Donna for your great site. This is right up my alley. We are always looking for junk to repurpose. I love the look. Can’t wait to explore some more.

  29. I just love all the things you have made and hoping your items will be up for sale !!! I love the desk made with the saw horses, wood pallet,ladder. where or how did you create the large white shelving/back drop !! I want to re-create the desk, love it !! i can’t tell the white piece that will hold files/more it came from a storage facility ??

    Thanks so much,

  30. Hello Donna, what a wonderful website-to-be! I found you on Pinterest and follow you on Facebook. I love your ideas and all the wonders you create! Wish your store was going to be here………can’t wait for a website to shop.

    Continued health and happiness to you, Lynda

  31. I LOVE the crate stairs. I thought I read you would have the stencils available. Where would I find them? I would love to do this on our unfinished stairs.

  32. I love love love your staircase. PLEASE if you sell these stencils I want to be the first customer. So darling. I need to do this on my wooden stairs going to the basement.
    Hope to hear from you,
    Mary Ann

  33. I love your stuff! I can’t wait to try to make some of your ideas! Let me know when you open your store!

  34. Donna,

    WOW WOW WOW! I went online looking at rock gardens and somehow landed on your page. To say I’m impressed is an understatement. I want to completely revamp my place and go yard sale grunging. Thank you for being so creative and inspirational. You are truly gifted!

  35. I just came across your site by accident. I was googling how to make a fountain. I LOVE your site. Everything you have shown is my style of decor. I just don’t have the imagination you have. But I do have a lot of junk so I guess I am half way there!!

  36. Love the plate valance but I can’t seem to find the “how to” on the blog… help please?

    BTW all of your things are just amazing!

  37. Donna,

    I love your blog. My husband and I recently moved into a new build house and I can’t wait to decorate and make it look less new and more old. Have you ever thought of having someone email a picture to you of a space and then suggesting your ideas for a fee?


  38. So creative, love your stuff. Can’t wait for your store to open, hope you plan on shipping!

  39. You have an unbelievable gift in creating and decorating. You should have a shop and sell your items. Your website is awesome!

  40. When making your wood signs, you mentioned you use a pro letter machine ? What is that, where can I get one ?


  41. looking for the acorns on your site, any suggestions oh where to find or
    do you sell them? Live in Queen Creek, AZ thanks

  42. Talk to me about the sofa I see in some pics. The one with the wood arm trim. Old? It is lovely. I would love to find one.

  43. HI DONNA!
    I get so excited every time Funky Junk comes up! You are absolutely the best!
    I have a question. Since I have no way of cutting wood, would you consider selling the packaged wood for a tool box? I would love to be able to make one. Just a thought. πŸ™‚
    Carol Leslie

      • Hi Donna, Thank you so much for responding. If it wouldn’t be to much trouble, would you please price it out for me and let me know. That way I would know how much. I seriously would like to buy this if it’s not outragious. LOL Thank you so much.


  44. Hi Donna! My name is Margie and I am from Southern Mississippi. Frankly, 35 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico; where I am from. We were a major path of Hurricane Katrina. My two sons, alot of family, and a lot of friends, lost EVERYTHING! Hurricane Camille was a thunderstorm compared to Katrina. Anyway, I LOVE your site. I am going to have to figure out how to blog. I am a 67 year young mother of 5 (one step-daughter), grandmother of 17, and 7 greats, and they are GREAT! I love to garden;we have 2 acres, I have a home based craft business and can’t stop finding new things to create; I’m sure you know what I mean. If I see something on the side of the road, STOP!!!. So, you are the type of friend I need. I will continue to follow you and I’m sure I will totally LOVE it! May God richly bless and keep you and your family and shine His light upon ya’ll! Respectfully, Margie

    • Margie, I’m so sorry for all the heartache that’s transpired… truly scary! Blogging will give you something you never even knew you wanted… I vote to just go for it. You have all the makings of the coolest content! I hope you do it!

  45. Love you, love your site, love your posts! Please get the “shop” section up soon! And be sure to make tshirts!! Would be the best thing since Mason jars to have a Funky Junk shirt!

  46. You a very tallented! Love your stuff. When you have a bench for sale please contact me. I’m in calgary so I guess shipping might be steep.


  47. Hello,

    I was wondering if you made the wood signs pictured on your website (“Peace Love Happiness” & “Live Large”), or if you purchased them somewhere? I love them!

    Thank you!


  48. I’ve been looking around the city nearest me, to see if I can buy brushes that are best suited for stencils. I have one or two Fusion brushes, and one from Homestead House, but I had to travel an hour or more to the retailers that carry them! There’s a large city near me with Michael’s but I haven’t found any there. Is there an other retailer where you buy your stencil brushes?

  49. Hello Donna, I love your style!! I can’t wait to buy all of your stencils (they’re perfection X 10) a few at a time. We’ll be moving next year and I want to do the whole place with them, every room! I do have a question though, which stencil brushes are your favorites? Thanks in advance ?

    • Hi Michelle! Sadly, I haven’t found a good source for a favorite as yet. They are super hard to find in my area and I’ve yet to find a good source online. I’ll be sure to blog about it when I do! It’s just a hit and miss for me at local craft supply stores at the moment, and I end up with lots of duds. πŸ™‚

  50. Donna, this blows me away. I two am starting over, I have a small older place, and your beautiful items would sure look good in here. I so loved the Garden and Pantry items.

  51. Hi Donna,

    How do you clean your stencils? Do some paints clean off better than others?


    Love your stencils!


    • Hi Jeanne! I actually don’t. I just ensure the edges are clean by running my finger over the letter, then leave them be. And I do believe some paints clean off easier than others, but a paint that fights it is a good paint indeed! πŸ™‚

  52. hello,
    I am interested in carrying your stencils in my store in New Mexico.
    I currently carry fusion paint.
    I can’t get the link to work for wholesale info.
    Thank you

  53. Hi, just saw your post on Wendy’s post, ( she lives down the street…..for now )
    Is it for sale?
    I’m a bit confused, as it says…B C and also Ontario….
    ( we retired in the Maritimes, from Saul Ste Marie….ont.
    Anyway, maybe Wendy will order the Stencil?
    I will email her, and ask her.
    I love your site, you are a very creative girl, and so is Wendy.
    Thanks Donna,

    • Hi Carol! I sell the stencils, not any finished signs myself, but many others do create to sell.

      I reside in BC and am the designer / idea maker, and I have Joanne that fabricates and runs the stencil store from Ontario.

      If you’re re referring to Wendy via Front Porch Mercantile, she is definitely the one to reach for stencils or finished projects!

  54. Well if I hit a jackpot could buy every stencil from you. Will need to buy one every other month if possible. SS doesn’t leave me with run-over money too often so will have to save up. So love your stencils signs are one of favorite projects to make, always have been. Do have lots of pallet wood for them. Boards have gotten nicely seasoned out in our back yard. Just have to talk sweet to get hubs to pull those pallets apart for me.
    Have great weekend

  55. Hi Donna, hope your are doing incredible! I was wondering, how do I order the buffalo plaid stencils. I must have missed where to order from, looked but nothing jumped out at me. I really need to get my hands on those, for decorating a conference in Canmore in Sept. Thanks so much. Cindy

  56. I too am crazy for plaid and am so glad you have made these stencils for the rest of us to use and have a speedy result!

    Thanks and keep up the good work,

  57. HI Donna
    I just love your site, so inspiring and puts a smile in my heart to see all your creativity. I am looking to make some of my Christmas gifts this year and I love your stencils. I am wondering do you have a stencil of a grape cluster or wine glass? I am thinking of making coasters with wine theme on one side for evenings and coffee beans for mornings.

    For now I will buy your coffee stencil that has the beans.


    • Hi Gina! Thank-you for your order!

      At the moment I don’t have any alcohol related stencil designs, however I will add that request to my list. Thanks for the idea! You are not the first to request a wine design.

  58. Love these stencils!!
    Just totally wish that besides adding to the cart for immediate purchase, wish you had a β€œwish list” or β€œsave fir later” option!!

    For things I want to remember to buy later (very important memory helper!!) AND to be able to share with others as gift suggestions for my next birthday!!

    • Thank-you RR, that’s a neat idea! I personally have found that if I enter things in the shopping cart and don’t purchase, those things remain in the cart until I remove them. Perhaps just add them without paying and see if it works for you? Big Cartel is a simple store with few bells and whistles. I’m debating moving the store elsewhere so more options are available. Thank-you for your wonderful idea!

  59. Hi
    I found a wreath made out of mason jar lids that had your name on it. I cannot find instructions on how to make it. It is not the Christmas wreath with the Christmas balls. It is just a regular wreath. I am having trouble getting it round. I love all your creativity and have followed you for a long time. You were around before all the days of creative junking. Thanks

    • Hi Bethanny! If you use thicker mason jar rims, it’s easier to make. Slip in a tie of sorts inside the rings, (I used a robe belt!) tie tight, hang then adjust. They don’t stay perfectly round if touched or moved around. In this case you could invent some sort of frame to glue the rings to for added stabilization if desired! I didn’t worry about it myself.

  60. hi Ive just been looking at yr website I have to be honest im feeling better just for looking and reading …I just want to say thankyou.
    After the month that ive had… I am feeling more calm and less anxious already…I know that wasn’t yr intention when you created yr site but its wonderful to feel like ive connected with someone/thing that I am always doing myself one way or the other, toodling in the garden creating peaceful spaces to enjoy and building new ideas from this and that.
    So after all that I just want to say thankyou again and let you know that I am in afar better place in my head and heart since reading you.
    Be well
