Re: Junky Bedroom makeover-Old door headboard

Absolutely love this. One of the very best repurposing posts I've seen in a long time. Can you tell us about the window and how you accomplished it? TIA

Re: Saucers Anyone?

Fun, colorful idea, Becky. Great bargain!

Re: Finishing my Shutter Headboard

This is nice...my first thought for the openings was to add old tin ceiling tiles. A mosaic made of broken china tiles would be interesting, too.

Re: Presto Change-o

Georgia, your mind certainly is percolating -- this is such fun. As a kid, my mom taught me how to make coffee as workmen would be at our farm when she was gone and I would be in charge of making coffee. Well, I forgot to put the coffee in the basket and threw it in the water instead. Needless to say, it's been a joke to my family ever since -- and I don't drink coffee to this day, I only collect tins and pots. I must find the inner workings of an old pot and make one for myself. Thanks for the great idea!

Re: Repurposed Silver Service Tray

Marcia, Marcia, Marcia! Love it -- I knew it was yours the minute I saw the post....you did a great job on Rosemary's design.

Re: A true "junky" to "funky" transformation

I can almost see the light bulb moment "aha" moment -- absolutely fantastic use of junk. Give yourself an A+!

Re: Believe Santa Door Panel

Marcia, Marcia, Marcia -- Hey! I recognize that painting in your icon! LOL Good to see you here -- yes, I love junk -- wish I could have been at the estate sale you just helped at! Marcia's a heck of a painter as well!

Miz Sue -- glad you enjoyed Santa. I'm certainly enjoying Junk Beautiful and the new DVD!

Re: Water Ski Bench/Table

Great bench -- such a conversation piece. I checked out Gretchen ski shelf -- just loved it!

Re: How to Make a shelf out of a Infants bed

Great idea, Georgia. I really love it filled with all the white ware -- so fresh!

Re: old side table

Hey, I've also got a very similar table -- maybe we're all up to triplets now...I'll post a picture of mine.

Re: Wisdom Gal For A Special Friend

Jenny, this is so special...is the wood base a wooden pestle?

Re: "Every Wall Is A Door"

Such fine words by Meadowview -- your quote is so appropo!

Re: Wine Rack

This is such a great idea!

Re: Holidays & Simple Abundance

This is a great project -- love your color choices.

Re: Enamelware Ladles - Treasure Holders!

So sweet...wouldn't a birds nest be cute in one, too?

Re: Believe Santa Door Panel

Ooooh...thanks so much everyone! I really do have an affinity for old guys dressed in red with long white beards -- painted 750 one season alone to pay college tuition for one of my kiddos. I write how-to craft books and have a series of Christmas books. Hey, Junk painter, I do sell my books and packets but this one is for seminars only. Are you a member of the Society of Decorative Painters by any chance? I have a friend in NH who's an awesome painter and you may know her as Deanne Fortem. BTW - Love your website!

Re: Snow What?!?

Hey, the lights really do work but they are tough to see if you use a styrofoam ball bigger than a tennis ball. I've even put them scattered on icicle lights. However, the South Dakota winds we get raise havoc with them.

Re: 3 Chair Bench

This is such fun...however after all the Christmas goodies I've been inhaling since the holidays...I might need the whole bench to fit me! LOL

Re: LET'S PLAY WHEEL OF FORTUNE!

OH NO! Thou shall not covet thy neighbor's junk...but I do covet the bejeezus outta this!

Re: Art with Heart Show concluded...Upcycling in Georgetown, Texas

These are such whimsical fun -- that guy in the red check bowtie could come live with me any day...

Re: Snow What?!?

Love this -- so festive yet says winter so simply. Hey, here's a hint -- it works and isn't dangerous. Did you know that if you push those little white Christmas lights into a styrofoam ball, the balls will glow??!! I did it this on my outdoor trees on my steps and my wreath. Really is a neat effect.
