Re: Round wood table

Thanx Sue on the feedback, like i said im new here and new to junk but loving it!

Re: Round wood table

Yes, the handle here is also driftwood. Had it lying around and it seemed to fit the coastal look the table turned to.

Re: Round wood table

the handle on this piece as well as others is florida keys driftwood . can you tell i had a bunch lying around?!

Re: green end table

the block of wood is actually an old piece to a door key hole intact. i needed a handle for opening and just drilled on the keyhole ("block of wood") to the front. it works as handle

Re: Misty

Very pretty

Re: UGLY nightstand transformation

Very nice and one of my favorite colors !

Re: I Need Your Feedback

Aww , now we are talking romantic junk. Definitely worth considering. I see big old trees with twinkling lights dancing everywhere through the night. Guests arriviing after receiving elegant handwritten invites on vintage stationary . The bride mesmerizing in an antique lace gown passed down from generations . The old wood tables built from reclaimed lumber look exquisite under antique white lace tablecloths , which are adorned with beatiful candles collected ever so specially from flea market to flea market . Chair after chair , each one different than the last one, because they were wonderful flea market finds , dot the green grass . Elegant silverware collected from many wonderful flea markets may not match , but each is so exquisite in its individuality, that no one notices . The food is special , and prepared by someone who can professionally handle the importance of the event . And as sweet music fills the air from a classical orchestra, everyone wonders in awe at the beauty of the night .

Yes, I would do a junk wedding, if it looks like that !

Re: Chairs
