This is a little something that came back from Marburger Farm Antique Show. Amy (Alvn) and I had to fight for it... Amy won! Im taking it to the show before it gets delivered to her door. Hope she doesnt mind! Watch and see what it becomes! Amy.. I promise not to drill any holes. Itll be a simple re-purpose. Can anyone guess what this is?
Here is a twist on an old project. What do you think it will be?

Make sure to watch on Monday, April 13th as I spend some time with Kathie Lee and Hoda. I will be showing how to use junk to create a beautiful outdoor dining experience from the new book, Junk Beautiful, Outdoor Edition. I'm adding some new twists so it should be fun... wish me luck!

Great appearance on the Today Show! Loved the placecard holders made with the dominoes and hope Kathie Lee got the glue to stick!! I had a blast with you, Doug and the girls at the Heartland Retreat during Marburger Farms/Round Top week. Elton said to tell you he still had change for the $20's. Shelley and I can't wait for the next adventure~
I'll be in NYC next week so I'll keep an eye out for some cool junk for the next episode. Gig 'Em Aggies~ Kathy Posted: 2:55 pm on April 13th
CottageElements writes: Sue, you did Rock the House! And what a natural you are. I think you and Kathy Lee would get along great! And the table looked spectacular! The wine stopper looked a little familiar, too. Next stop, Oprah and Martha, if they're so lucky!

TadpolesAndTeacups writes: Wonderful opportunity! And it will probably post to their website too. It's time that Junk made it to the big apple!! I'll be looking for it.
My daughter was on with Hoda and Kathie Lee last month--just by chance she was selected out of the audience for a segment with them.
I posted it to my blog. Here's the link:

Best wishes!!

suewhitney writes: Thanks, guys! justloveit, you'll love this one. I once had a cab driver pull over in Manhattan so I could rescue a library chair that had been tossed curbside. It was quite a scene!

Take care,
