I have sprayed WD-40 around the edge (let it sit for awhile); then used a rubber-hammer to pop it off. Hope this works for you too!

Re: Book Case to Entry Table

Besides the bookcase, I love the jar tops in the 4th photo.

Re: Vintage cups served on a stylish new "tray"

"Cool" idea - great way to keep ice cream cold in addition to party dips/cheese balls, etc. I hit a lot of stores; never saw anything like the i.c. dishes. Love them as much as I love ice cream. The "25" serving tray is so appropriate too.

Re: introduction and first time post!

Welcome to JM - for being a "newbie," you have tons to work on - it won't take long b/4 you're addicted to this site!

Re: Master Bathroom

How did I miss this bathroom - I can imagine a bubble bath would be soooo heavenly!

Re: Master Bedroom

When can I check in??? I could live in this room 24/7 --- now I wish I didn't sell my "old" bedroom set; but at the time, it sounded like too much work to re-do. Too bad I didn't see these photos to my selling!!!

Re: Canteen Cowboy Lamp

You can now be on the "hunt" to make one for yourself - that's what I tell myself after "seller's remorse." Then I try to vision the new happy owner!!

Re: "W"

WOW is right! Also for WISCONSIN - go Badgers! I hope it makes the trip too as I see many hours into this one-of-a kind window. Love it.

You looks like you are VERY organized --- great idea!

Have some frames - now I need to hunt for those cute baby shoes!

I wonder if some old door springs would work??? Will have to ck this out as I'll need this for my first grandbaby!

Re: A Ho-Ho - Whole lotta Christmas Junk!

If I'd stop reading & drooling over all the JM notes - I'd probably have a clean house! My passion for "Junking" is so deep - LOL! Love all the creative vignette's you have & am hoping to find an old test-tube holder.

Re: Great Find

I found several of these chalkboards in the garbage but only had room for one! I put it out when I have a garage sale indicating the SALE; I could sell a ton if I had more - because I'm not giving up my one & only! LOL

Re: You're So Transparent!

This kind of picture frame is VERY pricey where I live - now I can make my own! Thanks for the details.

Re: wall art

I love this - how did I miss this?

Re: Valentine Window

I made an extra bedroom into my "Christmas Room" - just so I could enjoy my fav's year round! I love your display - looks like we're in a deep-freeze anyway so might as well enjoy the "glitter."

Another great idea to file!

Re: Window Garden

So charming & unique!

Re: Vintage Window Coffee Table Shabby and Chic!!

I love this window idea!

Re: How to Make A Paris Lamp

I normally have my first cup of coffee while I browse JMS & at first I thought that fringe "thingy" was a mop - good gravy, I NEED more coffee! Then, when I read in sequence what you did, OMG, I would have by-passed that fringy lamp in the first place. What a "brilliant" transformation!!! Kudos to you girl - you DO Rock.

Re: Let the music move you!

WOW - Let's roll to the music - fantastic re-use!

Unbelievable remake!

I'm just amazed what people throw out --- they have NO imagination whatsoever --- but praise the Lord for us "JUNKERS" to come around & try to SAVE the world landfills!

New "ice" idea - will I ever throw out anything??? No WAY!

I luv the mirror shape; u r good at "Etch-A-Sketch"; WOWZEE

I'm definitely stopping in for a closer look - LOL

Re: Picking up a Little Christmas Cheer...

I luv this too - amazing how some greens, a country tie, & a bell make this old picker looks just charming!

Re: A "Light Bulb" Moment...

I spray painted my vintage lamp like yours; added votive cups where the lightbulbs USED to go; inserted candles. I just love it! I'm going to embellish it with some greens for Xmas.

Re: Knock Knock Who's There...Santa

Knock Knock - who's there? Some more goodies to grab - why, oh why do us junkers love old door knobs & their accessories so much???

Re: Deck the tree with junky stuff. . .

Remember to leave me milk & cookies when I stop by on Xmas eve - you better watch ME as I might have to snatch up some of your goodies, or better yet, leave me "JUNK" instead of the cookies, OK?

Re: Simple Idea for Old Windows

I have a hard time NOT picking up any more windows - I really don't have any walls to hang them on - but I still luv them & try to sneak them in my "stashes" of things I like!

Re: Pennant Christmas Tree Skirt

Maybe a table cloth on a circular table - with some kind of candle, globe lamp, map of something, etc.

Re: Chocolate tin

Yes, a clock with a hang tag or something that it's always "time for chocolate."

Unique headboard!

Thanks for the "STRIPPING" info - now, I'll have to find it. I've used QRV but it's out-of-business - it was wonderful!

I think that's MY skirt - no kidding - I used to have one like that & gave it to Goodwill - too funny.

Re: 1950's Schooldesk

What paint stripper did you use?

Re: Sewing Cabinet Shelf

Wonderful re-purpose! Love the jar photo accessory too. I want it.

Re: i'll never do this again:)!

It is cute & I also started projects & as I got into it, it turned out to be mountain rather than a molehill! Congrats on finishing; so where will it go now?

Re: Wish I Had a Penny....

"Wish" it were mine! Could you hang a "barn" pulley from your hook & change the bucket of flowers to fall leaves, winter evergreens, spring tuplips??? I love the tin roof & the Texas star add-on's.

Re: There's safety in numbers

I have a collection of old alarm clocks; I'm trying to re-use them by opening the clock up & taking out the "guts" & replace with a modern clock battery. Has anyone tried this yet?

I want to do the same with my screen door; however, how did you hang the mirror?

You "GOT IT" - too bad for the ones that don't! That leaves more junk for us who got it---have it, want it!

Re: My first potting bench

Upside down rake as a shelf? Why didn't I think of that b/4?

Re: I Don't Know Why This Caged Bird Would Sing....

Amen to all the posts already written - what more can I say? Now I want to do the same---just to show my friends what fun "junking" can be!!!

Re: Through a glass lightly

Was the glass "frosted" b/4 you painted on it?

I hang my small, old garden tools from a similar rake

Re: Vintage Headboard "Fence"

What did you use to tie them together?

Re: Junk Market Dolls!

Unbelievable - so creative - I'll never be able to get rid of ANYTHING!!! LOL

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

What gauge wire did you use? Would old clothes hangers work?

Re: First attempt at making rust...

What ever made you think of using cinnamon?

Re: Guest Bedroom

Did you paint the suitcases yellow?

Re: VINTAGE WASHBOARDS-SHUTTERS

How lucky the washboards fit the window - I have a window in my laundry room - will see how I can make this work! Love the idea!

Re: New Purpose for Garage Sale Find

Did you hang this on a wall or is free-standing?

Re: Greetings from Project Land

I'm just curious on how you got about pricing all these treasures that are posted on JunkMarket.

Re: "MERCURY GLASS??"

Did you make the picture frame that is next to the goblet? If so, what is it made of?

Re: Picket Fence mirror/shelf

I'm so hooked on this website; first thing I check in the a.m. & just can NOT believe all these outstanding projects --- I love all the creative ideas but most of all, the "re-cycling" - so dear to my heart!!!

Re: Autumn Luminary

I use my husband's old minnow bucket (the strainer part) for a luminary. Simple!

Re: Hanging Planter made from an old Thermos

Is it attached to the wood? Or is that just a background thing?

Re: an old drawer found on the side of the road.

Is the handle an old barret?

Re: "JUMP THROUGH THIS!!??!!" (project #2)

I'm sure the local Thrift shop wonders what I'm doing with all the "junk" I buy - LOL. Now I'll be looking for a large hoop. Actually donated one in the past; should have kept it!

Re: Old Ashtray Stand/ New Flower Stand

WOW - love the look PLUS the idea - better use than an ash tray!

Re: 1940's cook stove

I have a very small, old white porcelain cook stove; I keep my cookbooks inside the door. I like the wood burning idea too!

Re: Spools, spools, spools

Are these "bobbin" spools? If so, I'd put one in my laundry room with my old clothespins and/or next to my sewing machine and insert with material, thread, etc. Cool idea!

Re: Trash 2 treasure

Makes me wonder what my body will be re-cycled into in my "next life." LOL --- great project!

Re: Glue Caddy to Go!

I live in WI so I know about the "spray painting" problem. Our garage is insulated so I do "mini-spray" jobs by inserting my to-be-painted item in a large cardboard box; then spray!

Re: Refinished Furniture

Could use chalk-board paint and design an original chalkboard! Also, could paint a checkers and/or chinese board, etc. Tie the eraser and chalk with a ribbon attached to the underside of the chair.

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

So what did you do with the wheels or are they still attached to the wagon?

Re: MORE FOUND COLLECTIONS

I would attach to a vintage board---a circular mold as a "flower" and glue a vintage button in the middle; appropriate cookie cutters, etc. as leaves; and cut an old, black wire-coat hanger for a stem.

Could also use the molds as candle holders and add vintage marbles, sea shells, river-rock, etc. around the candle.

Re: Vintage Bulb and Reflector Wreath

I knew I should have kept Grandma's old lights - love the creative wreath!!!

Re: Toboggan Winter Photo Display

Just had another thought - if I do find a toboggan, I can use it by my desk; hang it "upside" down & use that end to hold my mail, magazines, seasonal flowers, etc. Would also hang family photos.

Re: Toboggan Winter Photo Display

If I find an old toboggan, I'd like to use it with the photos as a small-room divider, and/or in my year-round Christmas room and add Christmas photos from the past.

Re: CHRISTMAS POST CARD PILLOW

Is the card on "paper" or "material"? Where do I get this iron-on adhesive? Am I having a brain-freeze moment here or what? LOL

Re: A Simply Grate Idea for Keys!

I have a "Fels-Naptha Soap" grater in my laundry room; attached an old, original-wrapped Fels-Naptha bar of soap with country-tied ribbon. Sometimes I actually "use" the grater!

Re: An "ugly duckling" project!

I absolutely am a firm believer in "recycling" - it's amazing how creative we are with "JUNK" - I've always been a dumpster diver and am proud of it!
