Re: In Memory of Our Dear Friend Junker Midge

Midge's passing has been deeply upsetting to me. Strangely, I'd never met her in person before, but through exchanging emails, reading and responding to Facebook posts, private messages, and admiring her creative posts on JUNKMARKET Style over the years, I feel like she has always been my friend. If it hadn't been for JMS, I may never have known who this talented woman was! I'll miss her amazing sense of humor and her inspiration regarding her passion, business and family. Sending love to you Noreen.

Re: Please help us....we would like to be a bench someday....

Beautiful chairs and free to boot! Can't get any better than that! I personally would leave them black and distress even more than they already are. Are you going for a formal look? If so, toile would look beautiful. For a more eclectic or dressed down look, I say go for burlap. It may not be the most comfy, but depending on how often you plan on using the bench, that may not matter too much. (...it doesn't matter how you feel, it's how you look, dahling, and You. Look. Marvelous!) Ahaha. ;)
Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Re: How to Make A Paris Lamp

I was given the opportunity to select my favorite 2009 contributor project of Georgia's and knew immediately which one I wanted to highlight! Funny thing is I forgot just how hilarious the fringy before photo in her post was. I couldn't blame her one bit for almost walking away from it but am glad she didn't.

Her completed contemporary fixture with Parisian flair got us all thinking about the brassy chandelier frames we've come across over the years and wondering how we could get our hands on some of that styrene!

Thanks, Georgia, for this amazingly cool project! It is definitely deserving of a "Best Of 2009!" Wishing you and yours well in the New Year!

Oh my goodness, I am rolling over here laughing...and I'm not meaning that to be a pun, either!! Love, love, love the project and was at first befuddled with what you were doing with the washers. Fantastic idea!

You are one funny lady with your commentary, Sue, and Jim is knocking the funnies out too! (According to my daughter, "number 3" would be vomiting). Such a good post! Glad I have a couple of these braces in my possession.

Re: Vintage Redesign Jewlery Designer Scours Oronoco Flea Market for Treasures

Gretchen - what a beautiful post! I knew you had some real goodies in your jewelry pouch but I guess I never imagined how much! You really do have a way with choosing just the right pieces for your jewelry. I'm sure there are many more out there drooling over your photos like I am.

Take care,

Re: My Picks from Oronoco

Fantastic photos, Sue! I didn't realize that military clock was yours. Awesome! I believe everyone will be quite fond of the old gas pump front you found. It allowed for great fun photo opps!

ps - Lani, I'll fess up now. My parents actually DO own an Airstream in good condition. It sits along the side of their house and they use it for storage! LOTS of storage. lol. Oh, the life of a junker.

Re: Old liquor cabinet is my best guess

Welcome to JUNKMARKET Style asalle! I love the color and clean lines of this piece! Great price too. I also want to stress the safety issue with the candles...coming from someone that had a similar display years ago. The candles ended up scorching the wood on the underside (even the short ones) and that was when I realized I better move them out.

Love your style and please show us more!
Candy
ps. your lamp is awesome...have that lampshade myself. :)

Re: "Jazzy" Radio Light...

Oh, this is cool...such a warm subtle glow. (You also provided a great idea for the pinch bulb holder. I've seen little houses at thrift stores for dirt cheap using these. Cheaper than buying a NEW light).

You've probably seen from my posts that I don't go overboard on tool usage either, but never say never! Hubs bought me my very own a couple years ago and I see power tools in my future. (Eeek!) Can't wait to hear what you get!
Love it!

Re: A good junk find

You DID hit the "junkpot"!! How on earth did you find junk that coordinates so nicely together? I'm never that lucky!

Now this next part of the story is kind of cosmic, let me tell you, Alice. ;) I was looking through Sue's book, Decorating JUNKMARKET Style, last night, and saw a project in it using a wire basket and a set of legs from an old galvanized tub. (Page 186 to be exact.) I thought then how awesome the project was and knew immediately I wanted to find one of those wire crates to recreate it. I log into JUNKMARKET Style today to your glorious junk post and lo and behold...a wire metal crate among your junk finds! There's a connection, I tell ya. ;)

Wonderful finds! I can't wait to see how you use them.

Haha! I LOVE this post, Kathy! You are too funny! Great assortment of junk you have there, too.

Now, you asked for opinions and I won't button up about mine. Sue likes her industrial pieces. How about shipping off that "wholey" metal piece with the coordinating praying boy and throw in the tapes for good measure? Do you think she'll skate right through this ingenious challenge of yours, Kathy? I'm hoping so. If not, she may clobber you with one of those croquet mallets you're sending her way!

Can't wait to see what junk surprise she gets from you! Great post!

Re: Coffee Bean Message Board

Very, very nice bluejean! I have a "frame" that has big plans for something like this. Unfortunately I've been waiting for the right bag to use for it! I love the stencils you've chosen for them!

FYI - You can place your link to your Etsy store under the "Pattern or design used:". List it as Repurposed Antiques and place link in the space provided below it. It will become clickable then. Also - a suggestion for your photos on this site would be to focus closer on the project with less wall showing. You'll get many more views that way. :)

Re: Junk Chime

How fun that you're offering a class for a junk chime! That's a really good idea. Love it!

My girls were on spring break a couple weeks ago, so I took them there as one of our activities we were doing that week. This plant science center is located in one of the Cleveland Metroparks called Lakefarm Park. The girls got to milk a cow for the first time and see all the farm animals' new babies too. They loved it.

I must admit, after seeing so many people's projects using farm paraphernalia, I was envisioning what I could do with different items I'd see in the barns. ;)

Re: JUNKMARKET Style's 2009 Top "10" in Junk

I've been anxiously awaiting your "top 10" list, Sue. You sure don't disappoint! Metal chairs are fantastic and the ones you've shown would be fab in a dining room. I am currently ISO old lockers for my mudroom, so I was really pleased to see they made your list. I LOVE the set shown with their rusty grated sides! If these weren't as deep as they appear...they'd be perfect for me.

Thanks for your lovely list!
Candy

Re: Need ideas!

First thing I thought of was gift tags. Just punch a hole and attach to a present.

Balloon weights for a party maybe???

How about making a piece of art for the kitchen by spelling out MILK with the brown ones and using the blue ones as the background? Attach all to a board or cardboard and hang on the wall.

Neat find!

Candy

Re: My First Post! Can someone tell me how to resize my pictures?

So sorry. It is my understanding the site had to put size restrictions in place recently in order to keep it from crashing. Sue can clarify that for me if she wishes.

If you use Microsoft Office on your computer I can give you instructions to change the size using "Paint".

Click Start
Programs
Accessories
Paint
File
Open (Find where your photo is saved)
Image
Stretch/Skew
Change veritical AND horizontal size to 30%
Save As (Something different so you don't alter the size of your original photo).

Hope this helps and sorry for the frustrations. I want to welcome the new members and thank our regulars for helping out too!!

Take care,
Candy

Re: A Vintage Decanter Lamp

This lamp is truly beautiful, Sue. I am completely amazed it all started from a decanter and can honestly say I wouldn't have thought to make it into lighting! Love the shade too!

I'm missing my Country Home and was saddened to see it go...especially when my subscription was replaced with one I'm just not that into. I'm so happy Carol and Sandy saw exactly what you were all about and knew to go with it!

Re: Solig Lanterns made from Trash

I too drink Crystal Light and have always used the containers for my kids' small toys (ie dominos, legos,etc) and always try to think of other uses. Thanks for your great idea. Your lanterns would look really cool sitting along my deck rail...I'm sure most people would think I bought them at IKEA.

Re: Do you see what I see?????

Oh goodness, gracious!! I LOVE the frilly-edged large round piece to the right of the light cages!! Add a mirror insert. Also any of the round pieces in the same photo that resemble movie reels. I'd have to poly them and hang them on my wall. Egads!! I'd be in heaven.

I always thought a stacked minnow bucket floor lamp would be cool. I have the same metal bicycle basket but would love your gym baskets.

Of course we NERDS love all her junk (glad to be one too, thank you), but I must say the organization of it all has me blown away! Nice workshop, Jenny! You've really inspired me!

Now I'd like to see Georgia's creation and wonder if you and Jenny will finish yours off too. Looks like it was a blast! Great post.

Re: How to Contain Your Art Supplies

What perfect shelving units. I think why I love them best is because they have sides which contain junk a little better. Your little rusty junk piece that holds your twine is pretty spectacular. No more ball of twine unraveling all over the place!

Thanks for the great tips! Looks great!

Of course you'd find something totally unique and cool, Lani! I've never seen old film holders before and think they are fabulous. I love how you manipulated the color on the photos to look more vintage.

Fantastic idea and thanks so much for the post!

Re: Texas and Gatherings ... and Lightheartedness

Funny you should mention my name after you talked of the aquarium. I've been on the lookout for one with silver edges for the last couple months...ever since seeing Lani's ice skate display and some others I've seen online. You don't see those kind of cool displays too much here in Ohio.

I LOVE your table display with your muslin slipcovers! And very impressed with your SIL!

Thanks for sharing. It sounds like you will be having loads of fun the weekend of Sue's arrival!

Take care,

Re: Deep Fried Decor - A Floral Welcome

Thank you all! It was great fun perusing the aisles of the warehouse and disappointing I couldn't buy more that day.

texasjunkermom - The stand is an old Napanee Hoosier-style cabinet that comes complete with metal flour drawer. I bought it at a garage sale last summer for $10. It definitely needs some TLC and is on my to-do list. You can see it in one of my original posts to the site. http://www.junkmarketstyle.com/item/967/care-to-share-advice

Re: Junk Vacation - Part III (final chapter, I promise)...my finds!!

Oh, dear junk woman!! You found some pretty amazing things. That test tube holder is absolutely fabulous in all its rusted glory. And the "heavy metal" thingamajig has Metallica written all over it! Well...not really, but it definitely ROCKS! I'm with Karen thinking it looks like a ship horn.

Fantastic finds! Swap or no swap, you'll be seeing some test tubes to finish off your display so you can share it with all of us!

Take care,

Re: Finishing my Shutter Headboard

Midge, you come up with so many really great projects. This one definitely doesn't disappoint! I think whiteflower's idea with the nautical flags would add a great touch. Plus, it sounds like it could be easily removed if the buyer wanted a different look.

Great job once again, junk friend!

Very cool and I will definitely be on the lookout for one of these. Great job!

Junkpony - I personally have never used linseed oil on rusty items so I hope someone here can help you out. I just spray my stuff with a few coats of poly.

Nice work!

Re: Recycled Shelf

I love how you used the chair parts as supports. Beautiful craftsmanship! Love your sign too and it made me chuckle. Before my husband and I were married, I tossed him my keys to move my car for me.

Great job.

How cute is that! So perfect for a photo prop and way better than some of the cheapy looking props I've seen over the years. Your vision turned out beautifully!
Glad it found a home.

Candy

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

Okay, this is just too perfect. You realize I'm going to be looking at every old croquet set now trying to visualize what you came up with. Unfortunately the couple sets I have look nothing like yours. Very, very creative. Looks great!

Hi there, Joyofjunk! Welcome to JUNKMARKET Style. This is one fabulous bench, I must say, and is executed really well. I'm curious what you'll be doing with that extra ski you have now. Keep us posted.

Love your view.

Re: Wordy Birdys

Awww. I just love these! And the "Wordy Birdy" name couldn't be any better. I feel like the "mommy needs her coffee" was made just for me since I say it around my house so often. (Maybe too often).

Beautiful work, missartgurl.
Candy

Re: Transitional Treatments

Okay Marybeth, I'm going through a "why didn't I think of that" moment right now. What a great way to not only recycle, but to keep all those baby memories close as our little ones grow.

Oh, this is lovely Kathy. I can picture shakers placed on guest tables at a wedding with scanned copies of the current bride and groom's parents and grandparent's wedding photos inside.

Beautiful work as always.

This is a first for me! Very charming. I love how the slotted spoon helps keep the soap from becoming a goopy mess.

Thanks for the post!

Re: DRAWER OTTOMAN

Great storage ottoman! Your fabric choice and furniture tacks make it look so nice. I think bun feet for this style would look really good, however, depending on how heavy this is if you need to move it often(especially filled), casters might be a better option.

Keep us posted with what you decide.

Re: Glass Cigar Tubes - Totally Tubular Project

Aaaahhhh! That's what they're called! Sugar molds. Thanks Texasjunkermom. Looks like I'm the only one that couldn't remember what it was.

I really like the bouquet ideas from TJM and Georgia. The fact that you both thought of a similar idea, yet had a different take on it was fantastic! Romantic vs. Industrial. Stay tuned.

And Gretchen's ornament idea sounds pretty neat too! Hmmmm. Let me see what I have.

Gretchen - I received them from an aquaintance who's father smokes cigars. And yes, I'm open for a trade! My dad is supposed to get me springs from a bed on their property but I think he'll need to wait till Spring to get them for me due to the weather. (No pun intended). I'd be happy to trade some to use now though. Email me. :)

Kathy - Sure I'm up for a trade! And you're right. We could definitely meet half way! Email me through my blog in my profile. :)

Thanks for the comments everyone...they're always funny and sweet. Keep the ideas coming!

Thanks for sharing this with all of us.

I'm glad you got the "nerve" to post. I'd love it if all lurkers gave it a try like you did.

Re: Fifteen Minute Laundry Room Fix

Would you believe I came across a pair of spool holders at a fleamarket in September and passed them by??!!! Ack!! I was intrigued by their look and the price was even right. What was I thinking?

Great job Sue. I am junking up my laundry room come Spring and you've provided a couple great ideas for me to "spring" off of! Thanks for the post.

Re: Old Dresser Re-mix (appliance garage)

Love this PD! This is a great project to show members a sample of what can be done with a drawerless dresser. You could always start with a complete old dresser as well and use the drawers for other projects.

Your red finish is fantastic too! Thanks for sharing.

Re: Pssst. Don't tell anyone, but....

Oh, this is just too cool! You outdid yourself with this one jm! It definitely is a gossip bench however I could also see it in my girls' playroom as funky seating. Unfortunately they'd probably climb all over it like a jungle gym though. ;)

Nice plan with the ladders. You're just too creative, lady!

Great work!

Awesome decor. Thanks for showing us around your home.

Re: Mobile Boutique

What an inspiration on so many levels JJ. I have seen mobile libraries and mobile play areas for children, but NEVER a boutique for the elderly! So fantastic! And to think you rescued so many of the items you used to do so.

I bet your customers love when you come rolling to their place. Way to go!

Welcome to JUNKMARKET Style too!

Re: trophies, trophies, trophies!

I love the way you posted your lot and offered them up to local junkers! I hope it helps to get rid of some of them for you.

I like the ideas you've received so far. Here are a few more.
- Use as bookends. You have a lot to choose from so you can coordinate them with your decor...and each and every family member and friend's decor too for that matter. ;)
- A la JunkArchitect's pennant Christmas tree, http://www.junkmarketstyle.com/item/4477/vintage-pennant-ornaments , why not remove your trophy tops and hang as ornaments or use them to decorate for the holidays elsewhere?
- Use as jewelry hangers. The outreached arms of the athletes are perfect to hang necklaces or to place rings.
-Use as hostess gifts (hehe). Every time you go to someone's house present them with a trophy and say they received it for "being the best friend", "having the cleanest house", etc. Maybe only fellow junkers would get this idea so you may have to be selective. ;)

Good luck on dispersing your $1 find!

Re: Giant Whisk Light Fixture

You did it! That looks really good, Georgia, and I am jealous you found that box full of items for 5 bucks! If you tire of the cobalt blue shade or it doesn't sell right away, why not take the shade off and use a clear bulb in it by itself? It would really look industrial then. Love it!

Love your tart tin wreath too! Great job.

Re: "Indy" the Cat, aka "Jabba the Hutt" Crystal Collar

Hahaha! I LOVE this photo! Jabba...er Indy is funny beyond words! We used to own a LARGE beagle about 12 years ago named Souxsie and she was kooky enough to straddle the arm of our sofa and have her legs dangling from each side every time she wanted to look out the window. I think her fat booty was just a little too big to fit on the arm otherwise. It was the funniest thing I'd ever seen.

Love Indy's collar! Pretty and cool.

Georgia this is oh so pretty! Like Janis, I too love the little silver balls hanging from the crystal strands. And the pretties on your table would make the best holiday dinner or tea party!

Fantastic job!
Candy

Re: Giving in an unusual way...

Great idea! I'm glad you found a home for it on Craigslist but I think I would have tried to sell that puppy! Like to me...who has a sister-in-law with the last name Wilson. ;)

Truly a unique idea. Thanks for sharing.
Candy

Re: Peace

The print is amazing, but the frame is as equally amazing to me. Great job on the bidding war!

Candy

Re: Baby it's cold outside!

Hi Kari,
This room is lovely and so cozy looking! I feel like coming over, curling my legs underneath me on the sofa and reading a book. Is McCoy named after the pottery company? Thank you for sharing a peek inside your home.

Candy
**I see that rusty urn of yours too! Love that.

Re: Evergreen, Tinsel & Snow

Oh, this is gorgeous! I love the mix of the shiny and matte finishes of the different greens.

Beautiful job! Very inspiring holiday decor.

Candy

Re: America's First Nostalgic Guest House --- going 'green'

The fridge is very "cool"! Love that. And your colored tank lids are a neat, inexpensive idea.

Thanks for sharing this with us. Can't wait to see more!

Candy

Re: Tea Cup Birdfeeders

Your hubbie is on to something with his new an improved method for these. They are just beautiful! I love the one out front that looks to be a gravy boat. Great idea!

Candy

Re: Christy Noel's Vintage Collar

What a pretty little thing Christy Noel is! By the look of her face, maybe she thought you were going to take her bling away. Haha.

Pretty, pretty. Good luck with the contest!

Candy

Re: Coffee Tin Upcycled to A Bird House

I'm sure a lot of JD fans out there would love this as a gift! Great job!

Candy

Re: Going Green? I'm GONE!

Very nice! Love all your vintage green ornies too!

Re: Walt is a Junker

Walt is cool!

Candy

Re: Fabric scrap collar

Adorable name for an adorable scrappy pup! Welcome to the board and good luck with the contest.

Candy

Re: Felted Sweater Heart Collar

I love what Mailey has done for little Lily! She made her quite the doggie model for Etsy now. I've recently started experimenting with felting sweaters myself so it's really nice to see this submission to the contest. Very adorable!

Candy

Re: Let it Snow

Love this! You really do have some wonderful things and I'm envious of your talent to replicate vintage finds with newer materials. What a great mix!

Candy

Re: Scrabble Collage/Easel

Hi there and welcome! I've never seen Scrabble boards embellished with photos before. Very nice! I think you may have just helped me with an in-law gift!

Thank you for the wonderful idea.
Candy

Re: Putting a little "Mush" into Christmas!

I agree with JennyK. Your display is fab!

Candy

Re: Bits n Pieces Cat Collar

Barney looks quite regal in his photo shoot. Happy or not, he's sure a beauty!

Candy

Re: Needlepoint Doorstop for a Friend

What a beautiful, inexpensive and well thought of gift for your friend. I could use one of these for my upstairs bathroom. ;)

Candy

Re: vintage children's playing cards

Ooooh. I like those ideas. You get the best trash shamrockerin, don't you! How about make bookmarks or attaching to a magnet sheet? They would be adorable on the refrigerator.

Great save.
Candy

Re: Memory tree

Not only do I love the look of this tree, but the meaning behind the touches is wonderful.

Thanks for sharing.
Candy

Re: 6 panel window display

Oh this is pretty, pretty, pretty. Your window display looks absolutely fabulous! I really like the mini-dresser that sits on top with all the different knobs. That's cute.

Thanks for sharing this with us!
Candy

Re: This little table's got game!

You did a really great job with this project Midge. I really like the simplicity of it but also the fact you can use this in so many different decors.

Love this.
Candy

Re: T2T Noodle Board

Welcome to JUNKMARKET Style! What a resourceful idea simpleneeds (love that name)! And just think about how many of these pieces are being tossed.

Great save and love your idea.
Candy

Re: found this antique dentist chair a few days ago

Sheesh! No wonder why people are scared to go to the dentist. They must have an inherited trait of fear due to these chairs!

Great find.
Candy

Re: A little Elbow Grease

Wow! You really spiffed this one up! Glad you were able to see a diamond in the rough. It looks beautiful and I'm sure will sell in no time.

Candy

Re: Bennett's Christmas Collar

Welcome to posting to JUNKMARKET Style! Bennett is not looking forward to pulling Santa around in a week and a half, is he? He's absolutely adorable and you did a great job with his festive collar!

Candy

Re: THANKS GRETCHEN!!!!

I love this vignette, Janis! It is absolutely beautiful!
And what a steal for that little pixie. Unbelievable.

Candy

Re: How To Make A Santa Snow Globe

This is just adorable Kimberly and I've actually always wanted to try this. Now I have detailed instructions to do so! Thanks! That happy Santa looks like he was made for this project too.

Candy

Re: Snow Miniature Milk Bottle

How adorable! Try replacing the blue ball with a white one and it will look like a little snowman with a necklace on.

Very cute, Cynthia!

Candy

Re: Jar Collage

Very nice! I love the upholstery tack detailing!

Candy

Re: Junk Built Wreaths

Thank you again, all.

Cynthia - In the last photo, I have a photo of the shoe stretcher plain. There is a "knob" or round disc at the end of it (toward the right of the photo). I hotglued a silver flower button to a larger black botton and glued them both to the inset of that round piece (or knob). I moved the solid piece of metal to form an "L" shape with the remaining parts and wired together to allow an "arm" where the wreath can actually hang.

I hope this helps! So sorry for the confusion.

Candy

Re: A Little Christopher Robin Advice We Should All Make a Promise To Keep...

This is such a beautiful piece, Jenny. I really love her along with the message.

Candy

Re: No mantle-no problem!

I'm really getting into these vinyl letters I'm seeing people use. Love this project junkcollector!! Once again, great job!

Candy

Re: Junk Built Wreaths

Thank you ladies! I'd love to see your junk wreaths!

Georgia - I took the photo with the snow just this past weekend. We actually ended up having a "heatwave" yesterday in the upper 40's so all the snow melted. Now we just have a bunch of ugly, soggy ground to look at.

Janis - I'm anxious to see what you come up with for your shoe stretchers! Get to posting girl!

Candy



Re: Big Giant Pulley Wreath...For Candy

I thought everything's bigger in Texas, not California! It just puts my puny little pulley to shame now, doesn't it. ;)

You are awesome Georgia! Love this a lot.

Candy

Re: Rustic candelier "dooded" up for Christmas

Midge, what a great idea! It's so fun to see things in a new and interesting way and you sure did that! Very, very cool.

Candy

Re: And, a little holiday something for the "powder room" too!!

Just gorgeous, Kathy! That mirror is something else...something I've never seen before! Have you ever tried hanging it? I bet it would look great like that too.

Love your display.

Candy

Re: Vintage ornament display - better than Cake!

With all the pretty pink, blue and yellow ornaments, it's a great display even into the New Year!

Really love this!

Candy

Re: Lots of Love Always Yours, Bill 1941

What a sweet save. I'm sure the graphics are lovely on those old cards.

Candy

Re: Tree Stand Shopper

Like mother, like daughter! Looks like you ladies have a lot of fun with your junk. Very cute.

Thanks for the laugh!
Candy

Re: A little Christmas bling...

I think your guitar playing angel is the cutest little thing ever. Talk about a great "repurpose" of a violin! Your painted metal stand looks lovely as a jewelry holder! It's as if a jewelry holder was it's original intended purpose.

Beautiful, beautiful!!

Candy

Re: On Newsstands Now!

All that's left for me to do is teach the hubs how to gift wrap JUNKMARKET Style...my gift from him is now a given! You know Sue, you make it tougher and tougher for me to "Keep up with the Whitneys". ;) You're in another league and I just love that.

I can't wait to see what you, Kimberly and your new Junk Hunk have in store for us. Thanks for keeping it fresh and fun!

Candy

Re: Inexpensive & Simple Junk Tree Ideas

Thank you ladies!

Kari ~ There'll be no more of that office stuff when there's junking to be done!

Kathy & Brenda (Bubbasmom) ~ OHIO IS IN THE HOUSE! I know there are others out there but you two are the ones I "know" through posts or email. A shout out to all!

Thanks ladies, for your wonderful comments. I am in such good company on this site!

Keep on junking!
Candy

Re: More on "Etching"

I think your etching is quite fetching, Janis! And I love your idea about the teachers gifts.

Thanks for sharing your pretty photos with us! Keep them coming.

Candy

Re: Boise alley stuff

Very cool. Is this one a vase or a piece of your artwork? I love what you're doing with it!

Candy

Re: Not Your Ordinary Christmas Tags

These are just adorable and I love the fact that you used your father's stamps. So nice.

I used to make and sell tutus so this gives me an idea of what to do with the leftovers I have from them.

Thank you!
Candy

Re: Tiny Christmas Tree: reuse

What a perfect addition to a tiny tree! The little charm with your dog is my favorite along with the sparkly cross.

Thanks for sharing this idea.

Candy

Re: Old trunk Makeover

Your curb find is fantastic! It's amazing what gets tossed out but I'm happy you were able to make a save. I really like the vintage hot air balloon pattern you decoupaged. Very nice!

Candy

Re: What to Bring the Hostess

How neat. I would love to receive a gift like this. I too have recently been looking into using a glass etching product. Thanks for giving me the nerve to try it!

Candy

Re: Simple Treasures

I like your rusty cheese graters against your shiny stovetop. Looks great!

Candy

Re: Northwoods Christmas tree

Your tree is lovely. And those little red children's skis are too adorable. I've never seen a pair of those before. Great find.

Candy

Re: Gliding into Winter

Fantastic price! I agree with Kimberly. Looks just like a postcard. Happy Holidays to you!

Candy

Re: What to take to the office party?

What a sweet little nest you have there. Made even more special with a repurposed cheese "cloche". (love that). I have three at home myself, but can't imagine crafting something as beautifully as you did. Mine remain in a box.

Thanks for sharing!

Candy

Re: Junk Basket Display

You put this together so beautifully, Gretchen, and I want everything in it! Once again, your details are so very nice.

Candy

Re: A BARN DOOR REDONE

You got some great deals shopping around your house, didn't you? That birdhouse is adorable! And your barn door is definitely a wonderful display.

Candy

Re: FRENCH INSPIRED

You'll have quite a fans of this project around here, italianpeasant. It's hard to beat a nice fleur-de-lis.

Thanks for the post.

Candy

Re: No Wonder this took so long -- It's three things in one!

Love it, Midge! Thanks for working so hard and sharing it with us. I too love the little bulb attached.

Great project!

Great job and thanks for sharing! Wow!

Re: Joy To The World

Peer pressure works everytime, ladies! Lol. The change has been made. Thank you for the nice compliments and the helpful tips!

Gretchen ~ Can't wait to see your redo.

Candy

Re: Let's Go Skating!!

Your stenciled items really make them different from the norm. I too would love to give that a try.

Beautiful and fun display!

Candy

Re: Just "TIN" it!!!

Love the title. Too cute! And to have such a great set of tins in staggered sizes is very nice. Even nicer that it's from Grandma.

Candy

Re: My "JUNK" Tree

I love, love, love your tree, Janis! Your family treasures make it look absolutely stunning! I see the glass doorknob peeking from the tree and think that is just beautiful.

Thank you for sharing your lovely tree.

Candy

Re: Oh There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays!

Lani ~ I probably have too much to say about your displays so I promise to narrow my favorites down to only a couple.

The "Dream" sign above your bed is amazing. I am so glad you reposted Stacey's instructions on using a simple paint pen for the writing. I appreciate her idea with that. Thanks Stacey!

That wave of yours just knocks me over! Was that the first spot you thought of when you bought it? It is perfect there.

Yes, your collection of white flower pots in the locker basket DOES make a statement.

Oh goodness...I better stop there. Thanks for the great ideas, Lani! There is a lot of style in your home!

Take care,
Candy

Re: My sunrrom at Christmas

Your sunroom looks like a showroom! True junker style which is fantastic! Love all your finds and how you put them together.

I must say I am in awe of your camper! Earlier this year I went on a few websites to see how much a vintage camper needing refurbishing costs. I thought it could be a fun project for my husband and me to take on. Unfortunately he started back to school in August so my dream of owning an old camper was instantly gone...at least for now. Lucky you!

Candy

Re: Charming Little Chairs!

Oh, the red chair is adorable! I am down to three vintage children's chairs myself but am always tempted when I see them for a good price.

Very nice.
Candy

Re: Found...in my own garage!

What a great piece to use in so many ways. And what a nice guy you have there.

Love it very much, Kari!

Candy

Re: Finally Got Those Skis Done!

Thank you for the update! I wondered how things worked with them. You did a fantastic job with your father's skis.

Take care,

Re: Less Expensive Than a Real Fireplace

You really have some skills there, Mister. Beautiful work! And you are quite thrifty, which is always refreshing to read.

Great job and thank you for sharing with us. Keep 'em coming!

Re: Vintage Christmas

Welcome to JUNKMARKET Style mountaingoat! I'm so glad you posted this pretty vignette. Did you paint and distress your birdcage or did you find it with that lovely patina?

Can't wait to see more of your posts!

Candy

Re: Table Top Made With Old Printing Press Type

It's truly amazing what the end result looks like. I absolutely love it!

Great job, JennyK! Love your projects.

Candy

Re: Well, I did the Button Project ...hmmm.....

Like you, I really love your bouquet using your mom's old earrings! They turned out fantastic! I also enjoyed seeing how you coordinated the mini-bouquets with their salt shaker tops.

Can't wait to see more!

Candy

Re: Old door bench seat

You added so much creativity to this old door in the way you cut it in unusual shapes. It makes it different and special. Love that handle on the side!

Great followup to your card file ottoman!

Candy

Re: "SILVER BELLS" for Georgia

What a nice gift and your beautifully added touches are perfect with it as always. There are so many orphaned salt and pepper shakers out there too. Thank you for inspiring us all with this sweet project.

Candy

Re: Button, button...who's got the button?

Love this, Deb. Your bouquet "spin" is gorgeous! I really like the label you added.

Candy

JunkerMidge ~ You've got it going on! Love these photo displays.

Keep sharing your photos. They're awesome!

Candy

Re: COOL way to showcase your villages

What a fantastic idea for a non-working appliance. I bet it looked adorable in real life.

Thank you for sharing this with us my junk friend!

Candy

Re: A few more "borrowed" ideas

I remember this wheel project very well and love your rendition! You found the perfect door for it too. Just the right amount of chippiness and rusty hardware.

Candy

Re: A few "borrowed" ideas

It's always fun to redo a project you've seen somewhere. Heck, I do it all the time! Sometimes you switch things around a bit or try to replicate it as much as possible. Articles in magazines and segments on television shows are there to inspire us all.

I found a rusty pulley I'll be posting about sometime soon. It doesn't have the addition of rope like yours though but it's a pulley! Yours is great!

Love the Scrabble board idea as well.

Candy

Re: recent Raggedy finds

That's nothing that a couple of buttons and a pretty little dress can't fix...even if she doesn't have arms.

They're cute and look very loved.

Candy

Re: It's the Sign of the Season...

Oh, yes. What a fantastic sign! It truly does have a 40's Vermont cabin feel and would fit in any camp cottage decor as well.

Great job.

Candy

Re: Button Bouquet - 101

What great instructions. Know that they are very much appreciated!

Have a fantastic Open House!!!

Re: Holidays & Simple Abundance

What a fantastic save! And the papers you used really bring it to life. Great job!

Candy

Re: Sew Cute!

That metal piece from the chandelier is gorgeous on the front! You put this together very nicely.

Candy

Re: Mantle Turned Headboard

The carvings on the wood are beautiful! The nice thing about this piece is you can use it as a faux fireplace years down the road if you choose or for the real thing.

Great buy and I love how you've used it.

Candy

Re: Inexpensive & Simple Junk Tree Ideas

Hmmmm, Berton. Maybe I should set up a junk dollar store for all the junkers across the land. Not a bad idea.

Thank you all for your kind comments. They are very appreciated.

Candy

Re: Vintage Pennant Ornaments

Rah! Rah! Rah! Your penant collection is wonderful and looks really good on your tree. Like Lanette, I really like your cupboard however I am partial to your Firestone sign. I lived in Akron Ohio for years and some of the surrounding communities. Firestone was the heart of it all way back when.

Can't wait to see more of your posts.

Welcome to JUNKMARKET Style.

Candy

Re: Repurposed glass decanter bottle tops turned into Christmas ornaments.

What a beautiful idea. The shape really does speak ornaments when you look at them, doesn't it? Love your color pallette too!

Candy

Re: A vintage Christmas - just a peek...

Well that's one way to keep your family "buttoned up" for the winter! Cute.

Love the vintage vignettes very much! I have been looking for an old stamp holder with no success and may have to get one off ebay someday.

Thanks for sharing your displays, Kathy.

Candy

Re: A Junky Holiday Coaster Ornament

As I said on your blog...beautiful!

Candy

Re: SCREEN DOOR ANYONE

These look just fantastic and I'm loving the black. So perfect for the space!

Candy

Re: Fargo Road Trip!

That window display is phenominal! I really love the vintage reindeer with the broken glass and stone. So creative.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful shop with us.

Candy

Re: vintage dollhouse

How about making #14 as a bookshelf?

Cute freebie!

Candy

Re: Funky Desk

Yes, you just might have your daughter in your house longer than expected! Now I, on the other hand, may never leave your pool if I were invited. ;) That is one fantastic place.

Thank you for sharing your ideas. It made "cents" to save that light fixture from the trash...I'm so glad you did.

Take care,
Candy

Re: Inexpensive & Simple Junk Tree Ideas

Thank you Sue and Kimberly! I am VERY excited to be part of such an amazing website with such fantastic members and contributors! The JUNKMARKET Style site has the most inspirational, helpful and supportive member group I've known.

I can't wait to get started on the new projects buzzing around in my head.

Thank you again,
Candy

Re: black chair

The "where should this chair go" question comes up quite often in my house too. Unfortunately, I still can't seem to resist buying more when I see them because they are all so unique.

Can you put her in a spot that gives her more of a purpose than to just sit on? As a bedside table, a bookshelf (stack some books on her), in a bathroom, laundry, etc.

Great find by the way.

Candy

Re: Christmas wash tub

Welcome, welcome, welcome! What a fantastic wash tub display you put together with just the right amount of rust touches.

We are all big fans of Krista's snowshoe wall hangings, so you are one lucky lady. She posted one a few weeks ago for us to see. It looks like it may be just a tad different from the one you purchased. http://www.junkmarketstyle.com/item/3757/snowshoe-wall-hanging-with-old-mitten

Thank you for sharing your ideas with us! I can't wait to see more of your posts.

Candy

Re: Coffee Table Holiday Bling

Very pretty. You whip things up nicely! I really like the simplicity of the bottle brush inside the cloche. And your little painted stool is adorable.

Thanks for sharing this with us.

Candy

Re: Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire . . .

THAT is an amazing mantel and it is decorated so beautifully! And you're right, your "...shepard" sign blends right in and fooled me for a moment. Very pretty.

You really know your stuff, girl!

Candy

Re: a couple finds from monday at the yard

That's some snazzy wire! I could see using that for all sorts of things. And those legs make for a perfect sidetable.

Great finds once again, Damon!

Candy

Re: Christmas 2008

The tall candelabra is so different from anything I've seen! I really like that. I'm also eyeing that rusty bench that seats your prize-win snowman. Very nice.

Never would have thought a goat cart could look so cute but it is truly adorable with your tree!

Thanks for the post.

Candy

Re: How to Wrap with Wallpaper

Just beautiful! And your family traditions are so fun!

Candy

Re: Upcycled Cottage Industrial Candleholder

What a great mix of materials. And you are right...it is divine!

Candy

Re: Really UNUSAL Window

Perfect for the holidays! And I like Kimberly's idea about flipping it over in the spring.

Great $2.00 spent!

Candy

Re: Designer Road Kill workshop

I'm sure you and your husband feel like busy little elves in your workshop sometimes. What a great place to have of your own.

Candy

Re: Type Tray Coffee Table

I think your mother was ahead of her time with this one. I can see a few major furniture companies now who'd like that for a prototype!

Very nice.

Candy

Re: Inexpensive & Simple Junk Tree Ideas

Thank you ladies! Junkermidge - Haha! I don't blame you for not getting the doctor bag tags. I just threw them on the tree because the black bag was old and vintage. No real "theme" for them. I just liked the way they looked.

Take care everyone.

Candy

Re: A Silver and Black Christmas...so far

Oh, I'm loving it! Loving the contrast...the shimmer...the shine. It looks like it's your birthday lady, so Happy-Happy Birthday!

Candy

Re: I Love the Details of Vintage Cast offs & New

Hi Gretchen,

I love this post and all the fantastic photos. The main one could be a postcard.

I too love the details in vintage frames. Was the one shown painted that way when you bought it or did you do that yourself? I have a very detailed dark wood frame I purchased over the summer and have contemplated painting it. Looking for ideas on how best to do it. I love yours!

Candy

Re: My little red wagon - repurposed and happy to hold some fun goodies.

Oh my goodness! This is fabulous!

Re: It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas part 3

Gotta love that scale! Very nice.

Candy

Re: Vintage Vanity Platter with Monogram

Your plate looks beautiful! What exactly is the process? I'd love to know more.

Candy

Re: It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

There are so many things I love about your displays. For one, I went a bit rustic elegant with my decor in the living room so your ideas tie into that very well.

The boot centerpiece is fantastic with the "stay warm" sign. And I love how you simply used your "Holiday Greetings" stamp as part of your display.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Candy

Re: cart on wheels for displaying dollhouse

Oh I wish I could see it a bit more. I'd love to see the house too. Any way you can repost in the daytime or with the lights on? How did you come about the dollhouse?

Candy

Re: Vintage Dishes Collection

Oh I love your brightly colored collections! And it all seems to work really well together.

The fourth shelf from the bottom has a couple great-looking cookware pieces that I would love to have. Very nice!

Candy

Re: old window adorned with lights and ornaments

Old windows are great for holiday decor, aren't they? I have a couple stacks in my basement and can't believe I don't have any displayed right now. I better get down there quick!

Love your "always kiss me goodnight" sign too.

Thanks for sharing!

Candy

Re: vintage Chrsitmas cards

Great save! Love the cards too.

Candy

Re: Wild Thang!

You've really jazzed these up nicely! I absolutely love the shape of the old radio and how you incorporated your artwork to reflect music. Very cool!

Welcome to the site from a fellow Ohioan!

Candy

Re: Display Case Frame

This looks so nice, Kimberly. I don't think I've ever come across anything like it.

Love the two-sided aspect to it too. Your kids look adorable in it.

Candy

Re: A trike tire is in the cards

Lani ~ I forgot to mention, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your Tour de France trike tire!! It looks like you posted it here before my time because I don't recall seeing it.

How fantastic is that!! Thanks for sharing it with me again.

Candy

Re: Put a Little Spring in Your Christmas . . .

I too remember your project being in Country Home and loved it so much! Your photo idea is fab also. I may have to borrow that one.

Candy

Re: very old child's school desk

How cute is that! It looks like it would make the perfect side table. I found an old wood round children's table on the curb and use it as a side table in my living room. It's currently in it's "found" state however I'll be slapping on some paint in the near future (maybe).

Thanks for sharing your save!

Candy

Re: Having a Ball at Christmas . . . Christmas Balls that is!

Even though this was a lot of work for you, Lanette, the end result looks so sweetly simple. And I love that.

Thanks for sharing your holiday decorating ideas with all of us. As always, it's very inspiring!

Candy

Re: Time in a Bottle

Whoa! The design is so intricate. You do great work and it is just gorgeous!

Candy

Re: vintage linens

Love the gloves. I'm sure you're especially fond of those yourself since they come from family.

Thanks for sharing.

Candy

Re: cool drawer pulls

Any way you can attach them to the end of a curtain rod? Those are gorgeous! Great deal you got there.

Candy

Re: A trike tire is in the cards

Thanks everyone. As you can probably see...my home keeps getting more and more eclectic every day. I like it that way.

And I'm glad you'll can relate to the cards in the spokes idea! Good times...good times.

Candy

Re: Christmas Decor Ideas

Your displays are all so pretty, Gretchen. Love the glittery snowflake hanging from the mini stoneware pitcher. Beautiful, beautiful!

Candy

Re: Christmas angels -- junk style

Look at how pretty you made all those pieces-parts! Very nice. n That "weird plastic thing" turned out to be the perfect angel wings.

Thanks for sharing more great angel ideas!

Candy

Re: How to Harvest Bed Springs

...or you can get your dad to do it like I did. (He volunteered though, I promise).

Thanks for the instructions. I supposed to be getting springs in the Spring from my parents house but might be able to do my own in the future now. Thanks again!

Candy

Re: A Festive Junky Holiday Tablescape

Love you mix of industrial with pretty! Very nice.

Candy

Re: Button, button, who's got the button???

The curly-q stems are the best! Love these. And what a great use for old salt shakers.

Candy

Re: Our Day-after-Thanksgiving show!

Of course you did well! You had some awesome stuff! And your booth is displayed so nice!

I really like the magnet boards with magnets. I bought one years ago on clearance but have always wanted to try to make my own.

Congrats on the great sale!

Candy

Re: A junky little bit of Christmas cheer - part 1

This is absolutely adorable! You always have the cutest touches in your projects.

I know you mentioned your Open House is on the 4th. If you change it to the 13th I can make it since hubby will be in school only till noon that day. I'm sure your other guests and customers won't mind the last minute change. ;)

Please take lots of pictures too! I'd love to see your displays.

Candy

***By the way...you've been missed around here!!



Re: Here are a couple things i got the other day....

Holy moly! You've got a great eye there young man. Love the brackets...perfect for a shelf! And great deal on the cabinet doors.

Candy

Re: old antique heat grate i picked up this weekend

Oh yeah, you definitely need to show off that scrollwork. This is one of the more intricate designs I've seen on a grate. Make sure you post what you decide to do with it.

Candy

Re: LET'S PLAY WHEEL OF FORTUNE!

Oh, yes. This needs to go on the wall.

Great find!

Candy

Re: Deck the halls...and the cupboards...and the tables!

You know I'm finding that out myself. I keep adding and adding to my displays.

Yours are beautiful!

Candy

Re: Recycled Junk Christmas Tree Decorated

So beautiful! I love your color combination and your tree stand is amazing. Your daughter's photo looks perfect alongside the angel wing tree topper. Very pretty.

Great job! Thanks for sharing your project.

Candy

Re: Tutorial - Making a Recycled Junk Christmas Tree with a Twist

This turned out so good, Gretchen! I can't believe how thrifty you were with it because the end result does not show it at all.

I was following your step by step instructions very closely and wanted to see if it was absolutely necessary for me to paint an accent wall before proceeding between steps three and four. Just asking. ;)

Candy

Re: Galvanized Bins Wall Unit

Look at that! It turned out really great. Love all your colorful collections too!

Candy

Re: Collage Dresser

What a great mom you are! And creative too!

Thanks for sharing another great project of yours.

Wow! This is quite an art piece. I love it!

Candy

Re: Music stand turned side table

I remember this project very well from the book. You added great creativity to it too.

Can you believe I inquired about an identical music stand on Craigslist today before I even saw your post? Unfortunately there was another taker before me. I'll keep looking though!

Re: "All for $5.00? Really? O.K.!!"

I know that feeling. It's almost like you can't hand over the money fast enough...for fear they may figure out what they actually did!

Great find. I'm loving each of those pieces.

Candy

Re: Embellishing Old Mirrors

Cat - You chose the perfect additions for the mirror in the first photo. When plain, it's shape says religion or spirituality to me. Therefore, you embellished it beautifully.

It's fun seeing what you come up with in your posts! Glad to have you.

Re: Have You Got The Time?

Bill Ding! That is a hoot! What a great clock Jenny. I mean really...your friends must love you!!

Love them all but the Bill Ding one is a slam dunk to me. Very cool!

Re: Winter White Window

I absolutely love this Sue. The simplicity of the ribbon and fabric choices make the drawer pull details really stand out. Love that.

Thanks for inspiring us all once again!

Candy

Re: urban stool

Very cool! I love how you incorporated "ransom" into the design. Too funny.

Thanks for showing us your creativity! I look forward to seeing more posts from you on the site.

Re: Pottery Barn knockoff -- Junk Style

You know I'm not sure if it's a PB knockoff, or if PB did a knockoff from junkers like us. Hehe.

Great job! I absolutely love it!

Re: calling all ladies... here is a sheet metal high heel shoe i made from scrap sheet metal.

Truly amazing! It's almost hard to believe you could make something like that. Very cool.

Re: Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Oh, I really love this! I just purchased an old silver platter at a thrift store a few weeks ago and my dad is giving me the old bed springs they found on their property. Can't wait to use your inspiration to give my centerpiece a whirl for the holidays!

Thanks Sue!

Candy

Re: THANK YOU & my latest salvage yard bonanza!

Okay...one of your projects is going to involve a duck, right? I see "duck feet" among your hardware photo.

And are you sure you weren't going from house to house to remove their faucet handles? I've never seen so many in a pile. Wow!

Great finds...and I want that table frame.

Candy

Re: Memory garden

I absolutely love your gorgeous garden and it makes me kind of teary-eyed. I just think it is such a terrific idea and I'm sure your dad loves it too.

Candy

Re: Instant outdoor (or indoor) table

How perfect is that! It's like the two pieces were meant to be together...to serve you...with your feet up...while you gaze at your beautiful mountains in your back yard...while those of us in the northern or eastern part of the country are shivering cold. Hehe.

Love the end result! You are one talented unique lady. Thanks for sharing such great projects!

Re: A "Crowning" Achievement

Those are beautiful! I can't believe you got 5 crowns from those pieces. Very thrifty!

You have so many gorgeous pieces of bling too. I love them all!

So pretty!

Candy

Re: First Christmas Project

After you assemble, turn those puppies upside down and fill with goodies, ie peppermint sticks, snow ball candies, berries, greenery. Cover with a paper towel, flip back over, pull the towel out and your treats are inside the glass.

Very cute!

Candy

Re: old leaded glass window

Very nice! If you grow impatient on getting it restored I can see removing the broken glass and replacing those areas with something else. Colored glass, metal flashing, hanging crystals, etc.

You got a great find. You can't beat free!

Candy

Re: Ham bag pillows

Cute pillow!

Without the stuffing and with a long string added, I can see me toting this around as a flea market bag.

Thanks for posting.

Candy

Re: Eclectic Organizing

If I saw the finished project on your counter I would be hardpressed to believe it's former life was a lamp! What a unique transformation. I like how you added the battery powered tealight. It makes for the perfect nightlight in the kitchen or bath.

Great project!

Candy

Re: Snowshoe wall hanging with old mitten

Oh, I love this!! I'm sure these will sell quickly since you can just freshen them up year after year.

Beautiful display!

How perfect is that! Keep your remotes handy, rolled up magazines, notepad, paper, etc.

So resourceful and unique! Thanks for posting and welcome to the site.

Re: Christmas Bling & More Great Ideas

Wow! I just saw 4 or 5 pairs of white skates at the thrift store the other day and told myself I didn't need another pair. Now that I see the silver ones...I DO need another pair!

Thanks for sharing the photos. Very beautiful!

I did a junk tree myself but I don't have the hardware stash like you do. Very nice.

Re: Wheeling & Dealing With My Friends...The Big Day!

Okay now! Who found that gorgeous Johnson Brothers turkey platter? I sold one of those on ebay years ago and got a pretty penny for that thing. I love it!

I'm envious you have a great group of friends to go junking with. Looks like you all got some nice goodies.

Re: Trinkets for Trimming!

Georgia! I love your "12 Days of Junking" song! How cool is that! Do you mind me adding it to my blog and link it to your website? I love it!

Kari is right Sue. I'd hang your junk calender up anyday. I especially love the belt buckle and gear ideas!

Some of the items I will be using for trimming packages are;
Vintage BINGO cards, punched round or cut like retail tags.
Rhinestone buttons removed from a child's sweater - from Paris no less.
Clothespins decoupaged with pretty papers.
Vintage ricrac and sequins given to me by my mom.

Thanks for the great ideas!

Re: Oh?! Did you think these were vintage radios?

I can see having one of these at the office as part of your work space whether it's holding music cd's, software or backup discs.

Very cool!

Candy

Re: Tomato Cage/Galvanized Tub Christmas Tree

A wreath into a tree...now that's an idea! I love how you thought to use your tomato cages for the project and now that you've mentioned it, it seems like a very logical shape to use for a tree!

Great creativity!

Re: "Junk Friend"

This is absolutely precious! I can never seem to find any jewels that are affordable to make these projects so I really appreciate seeing what others do.

Plus, I also love the "Life is Beautiful" glass jar. That film is still one of the best I've ever seen.

Oh, you've just hook-line-and-sinkered every mom with young children on the site with this one.

Great project and it seems easy enough even I could handle it!

Re: well loved (and BIG) dominos wall art

I can't believe they're that big. What a great piece of art you made! I'd love looking at that all the time too.

Georgia - That is one funny story! That sounds so much like what my mom might say.

Re: A FEW CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS

Oh my goodness. I just love your silver tree! Is it vintage? Is that a miniature green feather tree? Love that too!

Cute stuff!

Re: Home Tour Preview

I think you've sold me on a white tree. After-Christmas clearance...hear I come!

Again, your decor is gorgeous! I really love your window display and am trying to figure out what you've housed your "spirits" in. I love the way it looks.

Re: Vintage Cookie Jar Christmas Tree

Welcome! I like this too! I've seen so many of the old soup tureens without lids that would work with this as well.

Thanks so much for the inspiration!

Candy

Re: ok now you can call me a gear head

Aha! The name stuck!

Sheesh. You really know how to get the goods, don't you? We applaud your connections and love to see your work!

I am still interested in a gear or two. I responded to your email asking for your phone number but it looks like you may not have gotten it. I'll try again.

By the way, how often do you have to replace the shocks on your truck with all the fantastic hauls you get? Just askin'. ;)

Re: Whisk Up a Little Ambiance!

What a great fixture! I haven't come across a whisk like this in my junking travels yet. I guess it just gets better and better, huh?

Thanks for the instructions, Kimberly.

Re: Bird house from junk ,I think this one has a old glass insulator from a telephone line on top.

This is just adorable! It looks like it's made extremely well and with a lot of thought. I can see hanging a few sprigs of greenery and berries from it for the holidays.

Thanks for posting this! I really like it.

I really like everything about these! The color, the chippyness, the simplicity.

Fantastic score and welcome to the site!

Re: Champagne Glass Christmas Tree

This is so pretty! And I love LuAnn's idea about guests removing their own glass to celebrate. You could even add little wishes for the New Year, or Christmas, tied to each glass with the ribbon.

Very creative!

Candy

Re: Shopping for ideas ~ croquet, anyone?

Love these finds and I like that you've made them useful.

I like Amy's idea about making the grocery cart a laundry room accessory that is functional. I thought of the drink server like she mentioned and think that could be a really cute idea.

Your watering cans made me think of using it as a plant/flower stand. Display the cans with a few potted plants.

And welcome to the site! You'll have a lot of fun here and will see so many great ideas!

Re: Compact Memories

This is a really great idea. I too think the one of you and your brother is fantastic.

Re: An Elegant Junky Holiday

I love this, Amy! Do you know how old this stand is? I've never seen anything quite like it.

Thanks for listing so many uses for it too. Such great ideas.

Sue - I think a member showcase would be a lot of fun!

Re: Screen Door Potting Stand/Kitchen furniture

I love the way you added that fresh coat of green to the top of the table. It goes very well with the rest of the shabby time-worn parts of the piece. Very nice!

Your church door is amazing! My hopes are to replace our laundry door from the kitchen with something old and nicer to look at. Now I have a photo to show my husband so thanks!

I also really liked how you hid your thermostat. Ours is an eyesore right now.

Mystery solved! I wondered how your ceiling tin tile was being transformed from your previous post.

I really like your aged finish. It really screamed that special touch!

Thanks for sharing this beautiful project.

Re: Something other than angels!

That headboard is amazing! I'm sure you had to find the studs in the wall for that, huh? The conversion is just beautiful.

Your rusty Merry Christmas sign is adorable too. I like how it hides basic brackets under the shelf. Great idea.

Re: Meat grinder turned Soap Dish!

What an ingenious idea! That meat grinder is a very creative re-use I must say. I'm sure your guests will remember staying at your home for years to come.

Re: Pegboard from piano front and old window with quilts

Brenda! I'm so glad you posted this!

Can't wait to see more of what you have.

Re: A "renewed" chalkboard

What a great advertisement for your business! I can see it drawing people in and bringing back your regulars.

Candy

Re: bus scrolls, vintage hand-made toy race track and big old industrial wheels!

The price you paid is phenomenal! I can't believe that!

And your dumpster-found wheels are just too good. Since you have only the two, I can see them poly-ed and attached to a piece of scrap moulding hanging vertically. It would be great in a laundry or kitchen to hang things on such as dish towels, laundry bag, coats, etc. And they would swivel!

My favorite are the bus scrolls. There are so many places in my house I'd love to place these. Very cool!

Candy

Re: No junk at Joan's...treasures galore!!

Kathy! Ugh!!! I wanted to be there so badly! My 5-year-old got off the bus Friday with a slight fever and 2 spots on her face. Of course I thought the worst. Over the course of the night her spots disappeared and her fever subsided but I feared making the 1hr 20 minute trek if by chance she would take a change for the worse. So sorry!!!

Joan's porch looks so inviting!! I am so glad you found some great items and she was for the most part "wiped out" of product. She is one busy lady.

I would love to know about your show in December but I promise not to commit so plans can't fall through next time. It's just easier for me to do things on the fly sometimes. Do you have a website or blog?

Thanks for sharing the pics. You ladies look great by the way!

Candy

Re: Not-too-shabby "cashier" table

How perfect is that! And so well thought out.

I especially love the cashier sign, the drawer handle for your bags and that money organizer. What great ideas! Instead of attaching something to the front for your business cards, why not use an old iron soap dish attached to the top? That way your customers will be sure to see it as they check-out.

I learned so much from your post too. Like what MFEO is...had to look that one up. ;)

You're way too creative!

Candy



Re: My First Weekend of Junking!

Wow! You got some really great steals! I love, love, love the head and footboards and suggest you use them for your girls. It's always hard to find matching beds like that at such an amazing price.

They do look just like the pink "Garden" headboard that Georgia made. I say paint them a pretty color of your choice unless they are too nice and should be refinished instead.

Re: Help!!! Ideas Needed

Hi Gretchen -

I just wanted to say I love this piece...especially because it's black. It looks like you've gotten so many great suggestions to.

I picture it as a display for the holidays with packages wrapped in brown paper and pretty ribbon or string. Kind of reminiscent of an old-time postal scale. You could place it on your coffee table or next to your tree if you use one for the holidays.

I know you mentioned the color probably wouldn't go with your items on your porch and you feared rust. I'm pretty sure you could poly-coat it with a few coats and it should be protected...especially since your porch is covered. Just in case you ever change your color scheme out there.

(And if you were closer, I'd buy it from you ;)

Take care,

Candy

Re: Another Door Project

I think the letter bag adds a lot to your door. What a great idea!

And thank you for the mini-craft lesson on the pinecone "tree". I actually have a couple large cones sitting in white pottery just like you do however I've always left them plain. They need to sparkle, don't they!

Very nice.

Re: Vintage Typewriter Gets a New Home

I also love the thriftiness of your "Let it Snow" display. Beautiful work!

Candy

Re: It's a Spinner

That looks fantastic! I have a similar "window" between my kitchen and family room except it's even larger. I always thought it would look really good hanging something of size there and now you've given me a great visual.

And of course you made it spin!

Re: Flowers and Silver

It looks gorgous. The tree topper makes it for me.

Re: Home for the Holidays with Sue

As others have expressed delight regarding the lights in the hallway, that particular photo has been ingrained in my head ever since the first time I saw it. I guess it has been in my head the last two years then. Talk about a memorable wow-factor in a home!

Can anyone direct me to the best place to find a copy of Creative Home? I checked Target and Joann Fabrics so far.

Beautiful stuff!

Re: Vintage typewriter turned photo display

Oooo, Gretchen. I loved the typewriter that Sue had a photo of. I can't wait to see the finished product!

Re: wonderfull good find this week.

Damon ~ You're in Akron?!!!! That IS close by and I lived and worked in Akron in my early 20's...Highland Square, North Hill, etc so I'm very familiar with the area. Wow! Small world.

Yes! I am very interested in seeing your gear molds and possibly purchasing a couple. Please email me to discuss: junksophisticate@yahoo.com and feel free to send your phone number if that is easier to discuss by.

Thanks so much! Will I be able to see that workshop of yours?? No pressure. ;)

Candy

AtticusFinch ~ The headboard idea is actually from Sue's book Decorating JUNKMARKET Style which is like my bible. That gear mold photo still sticks out in my head.


Re: Great Find

That is so nice and what a great price! It's nice that you actually put it to good use too. I bought one myself this week but it doesn't have the stand like yours though.

Re: Lighting Dilemma

Hi there Tracey! Your blog is really a great read and I'm happy to see you posted a new project in the works.

Lucky you on the freebies! I love the other ladies suggestions and I agree with Georgia's suggestion to spray paint the frame to lessen the goldy shine...unless you prefer the gold of course.

I have a couple ideas. First one was inspired by Kim Myles from HGTV and I remember the show very well. How about hanging clear glass ornaments along with matte and satin finishes of varying colors of your choosing around the entire chandelier. You have the perfect little hanger thingys to attach the bulbs with craft wire. http://blogs.hgtv.com/hgtv/experts/2008/04/how_to_kims_christmas_ball_chandelier.html

My other thought was to spray paint the frame bright or creamy white. Then lightly paint the clear glass pieces a soft color (pink, pale blue, light green). It would give it a shabby, softer look. I've seen glass pieces painted on tv but I don't know what type of paint was used.

I'm sure you'll get more ideas! Nice to see you!

Candy




Re: Our Family Photos

So very nice! It's the perfect frame for family photos.

Thank you for sharing!

Candy

Re: Vintage typewriter turned photo display

Thank you everyone. Your comments are very kind and appreciated very much! I guess I was the last person to own a vintage typewriter, huh?

Kimberly ~ The shelving unit is actually what I went to purchase in the first place. He pulled out all the other items just before I got there. You can't beat a $10 bookshelf made out of real wood now can you? Since it has some curvy lines I think I'll paint it (white as Kathy suggested) and place it my girls' room.

Joan and Kathy ~ Yep! I'm planning on coming! Yaayyyy! Unfortunately I will most likely have to swoop in and out but I can't wait to meet you both! I'm planning on being there around the time you open. Yipppeee!


Re: Mining for Junk? Absolutely!

That furnace filter tree is so cute and creative! And the typewriter is killer!

Looks like a place I'd love to dig through the boxes too.

Re: wonderfull good find this week.

Sorry to hear you have been going through some bad times but my goodness!!! Talk about extremes! I would be jumping for joy right now!

Jumbo headboard is what I envision.

Love the white!

Kathy - My simple style is a product of me being skerred of power tools. That being said, I just lean my junk around and they end up looking pretty good where they fall. ;)

Re: Funny or embarrassing junking stories, anyone?

Hi Sue - Hehe. That is a great story! You've shown how an unusual item can reel customers into a booth. I'm not sure I have the capability of keeping such a "prized" piece in my stock though! Hopefully you got other sales from them checking it out.

That is just too funny, Kathy! And what an amazing coincidence you would end up at the same place a month later. I can't believe you "fessed" up to it though. Funny, funny!

Fellowjunker and Eveh - I've oftentimes been very curious about abandoned homes and would love to stop and check them out. I think you've both cured me of my curiosity! It was nice of you to check back on the elderly man fellowjunker. And Eveh...sounds like that house had some squatters!!

Loni - Lol. You know maybe I should put the wash room sign in my kitchen. It seems like I'm always telling my girls to "go wash your hands!" whenever they enter. That's a pretty cruddy thing that happened to you but you bring up a good tip for us all. "Stake your claim" and then check the item out thoroughly.

W.T. - I'm so happy your sofa was still there for your husband to pick up! Most times you'll find people that throw things out are happy when someone else wants them.

Italian Peasant - Great stories! That's too bad someone would take items from another's pile. And now I know where your to find all those great signs I've been searching for. ;)

Thanks everyone. I knew there had to be a lot of good junking stories out there.

Re: Vintage Port-A-Crib Redo

Hey Gretchen - My neighbor uses her sons' old plastic sleds to haul around to do yardwork. I thought that was a brilliant idea! Talk about reuse! She said she read about the idea in a mag.

Re: Junk Built It

Congrats, Gretchen! Your position as contributor is well deserved! Your postings are always so informative and the photos are wonderful to look at.

It is always shocking to see what gets thrown away...especially when businesses have such large quantities of items on a regular basis. Wouldn't it be a good practice for businesses to be able to say they limit waste in the world??? I know I'd be drawn to those companies.

That being said, this project is fabulous! You are so lucky to have in-laws that have your same passion to reuse and improve on "junk" items.

Great post!

Re: Window of Memories

This turned out really nice! I love it because the window is a bit different than the norm. At least the ones I've seen. Great job!

Candy

Re: Window Pane Photos

This window was made for this project! It's beautiful and so is your family. Thanks for sharing...it got me inspired to do something similar.

Re: Fall 50th Anniversary Party

What great inspiration! We are hosting my in-laws 40th wedding anniversary on the 25th and it is so nice to see your ideas. I love the wheelbarrow chillers!

Beautiful job! I'm sure your parents were honored to have such a lovely western reception.

Re: In the "Pink" Garden Sign

Gorgeous garden piece! The pink is such a pretty shade too.

Candy

Re: Glass Bottles!

This is really cute and creative! I've seen "lost" lids at thrift stores all the time and never even thought of something like this. Very nice!

Candy

Re: Conservatory - (and the good ol' summertime)

This is so nice, Kathy! I absolutely love the legs on the sideboard and I can't believe you found it for $10. I have a pretty big load of windows in my basement and have never tried to tackle a conservatory. Yours and the others I've seen lately on this site are really giving me the conservatory bug.

Thank you. It's beautiful.

Re: A "bottled" centerpiece...

So pretty! I love how you have them sitting on an ornate mirror. I'm sure it looks gorgeous IRL too.

Re: My Rendition of the Falloween Clock

This is so creative. I love the clock face you chose and that chunky twine. Looks great!

I'm happy you posted! Your display looks terrific and I really love the garden gate. Very nice!

Very creative!

Re: Ever Seen A Blue Pumpkin?

Re: Junk Market Dolls!

I've never quite seen anything like it. Very cute!

Re: Projects - for the Scott Antique Market

That pink drawer front is adorable!

Re: part of my mad scientist lab where it all comes together, talk about junk!

It reminds me of scenes from the movie "Back to the Future"!

I'm loving those lighting fixtures!

Re: Picket Fence Decor

Sometimes the craziest women are the most creative! Love your collection!

Candy

Re: lamp and bowling ball coat rack

These projects are truly fabulous! My husband says he'll love my junk once I start bringing home car or airplane parts.

I'd love to see more!

Candy

Re: Dressed my nest

Thank you everyone! We're hosting my in-laws 40th wedding anniversary in about 3-1/2 weeks so I'll probably have to freshen the display up and add a few more things just before. Thanks for the positive feedback!

Candy

Re: Patio Falloween up North

This just looks so fun! I love your horseshoe peg rack and your comfy seating arrangement around your firepit. I want to come to your house to make s'mores!

Re: Ink Block Photo Collage

Brilliant idea! I need to get crackin' on my tool skills.

This is too darn cute! It's different and adorable which is a great combination.

Candy

Re: FREE Junk!!

Free or not, that is great junk! Have fun going through the basement! I'm quite envious and can't wait to see what else you find.
