Doors found at a demolition house, antique market and barn sale, when assembled made for a great backdrop prop.  Ive also used them for a backdrop at a speaking engagemet.  The dress was made for a runway show featuring recycled materials.  The designer used tissue paper.
The trunk was found at one of the many local junk sales we attend, the foot stool was something that was headed to the trash because the top was missing (a little wood and some stain solved that issue), the light fixture was found lying in a basement of a relative, who had no use for it.  However, my FAVORITE pieces are the bed springs I passed on to the hair stylist to use in their hair!

I decided to take my junk to work with me!  As a Fashion and Set Stylist I'm always looking for great items and sometimes I can't resist but to include some of my little "junk" finds.  It's a funny thing when Junk meets High Fashion, they just seem to go so well together!  

 

Thank you to Dean Ohlman, fellow Junker and father-in-law for bringing these items back to life with his mad refurbishing skills.
