Dictionary Place Cards

Some fun with paper.  I took some card stock I had lying around the house and some pages from a vintage dictionary that had seen better days and made some place cards out of them.  

Test Tubing

A perfectly rusty crusty test tube holder and four vintage test tubes have been turned into a display for flowers.  I hand stamped a little birdie onto each test tube and made a tag that reads...

Cloche from 3 Vintage Glass Pieces

I used an old insulator, a vintage light cover with thick somewhat wavy glass and a crystal ashtray to create this display cloche.     I've also started my own store on Etsy recently and I...

Finally Finished Junk Swap Project

Well it took 4 days (I've decided that I am not a fan of having to wait on paint to dry!)  but I finally finished my junk swap project.  I'm happy how it turned out. I think this would...

Simple Thrift Store Decorating 2

I am addicted to Goodwill, I admit it. I find a lot of cool things there for my house and to squirrel away for future projects. There are three Goodwill stores that are within 5 minutes of my house...

Simple Thrift Store Decorating 1

I really like the look of light globes and with their big round shape and smaller opening I thought they would make a great flower vase.  The dilemma was how to get it to stand without falling...


I found this old cast iron fuse (switch?) in a discount booth at an antique mall.  I fell in love with the glass, rust and white coated cast iron and at $9 I couldn't pass it up.  I wanted...

Nesting Bird Server

I finally got around to doing another server (which of course includes a bird!).  For this one I once again used vintage orphaned dishes, including this sweet tea cup I found at a garage sale...

Bird Perch 2 Tiered Server

My second server; this one is two tiered and has a rod that goes through the plates.  It was a brass rod that I painted a glossy green with perm-enamel paint and glaze.  The base was a...

Halloween Frame Makeover

I found a wedding frame at Goodwill for $2.99. It had frosted glass on some of it that was really scuffed and scratched.  I painted over all of the frosted glass and some additional glass swirls...

Bird Totem

I was trying to think of a cute table display piece that was tall and included nests and birds; this is what I came up with.  Hope you like it!

Tiered Server

I have seen some wonderful tiered servers by other junkers made from vintage dishware and other items so I thought I would try to do one myself.  I used some orphaned vintage dishes, candle...

New Purpose for Garage Sale Find

I found this old, heavy, cast iron jar opener at a garage sale for only $2! I was so excited and snatched it up immediately.  I didn't want to change the perfectly aged opener too much so I...

Another Vintage Ad Frame

Here is the second frame I have created from the gifted craft blanks and the fee copy of a 60s Vogue I found.  The images are taken from a feature about a store where no children’s clothes...

45 LP Bird Centerpiece

Here is a record project for the challenge.  The record is used, though not as an overpowering focus (I am working on another one that really features the records :).  I found a 45 7" LP at...

I like your use of the boxes... and your junk rule! :)

Re: from terra cotta to whole lotta red!

Great job, love the strong color and shine!


So pretty! I've been wanting to try this for awhile but I have been a little scared. Do you need to use a tray that is completely smooth on the part you want to add the chalkboard paint to? Seeing how dazzling yours are makes me want to increase my bravery :)

A lovely mix that works so well together.

Love your spring projects! I wish it was nice here. There is a storm going on outside right now and they said it might snow here in Portland,OR this weekend.... in April! Anyway, I really like the colors you used in your server, especially the pink glass on top! I just may have to pull some inspiration from you too :) Good luck with the mint, the container is awesome.

Re: In love with Jack...

Thanks for making me smile and great re-purposes!

Re: Junk food stands contain life, unprocessed.

Nice Rack! (sorry I had to do it ;) Great idea for these, there are a lot of stores recently that have been getting rid of display racks in my area due to downsizing or going out of business... maybe I should pick some up for the garden.

Re: My Swap Project 7 & 8 - bluebucket

Very cool!

Re: A Fun Broken Chair Project...

How creative, a great reuse of items!

Re: whatnots and thrift store finds ;)

Great finds, and a steal on the cabinet doors. Some ideas are to paint out the middle with chalkboard paint and leave the outer part as a really nice frame for it. Or you could attach some kind of hook down the middle of the narrower ones and turn them into coat racks. You could cut them down the middle (making 4 sides in each size) and make really nice boxes for storage. You could also use them as shelves. You could also attach baskets and brackets holding jars and turn one of them into an organizer. So many possibilities :)

I picked up one of those things you used for the Look message board at a thrift store the other day with the intent to use it for a project. Do you happen to know what that "thingy" is called? The lady at the checkout asked me and I realized I had no clue :)

Amazingly elegant!

If you love abandoned drawers just take a drive around the Portland, OR area. I have found so many great drawers at the curb (doors and windows are very common too). Love the one you have here, great finish that looks beautiful with the jars!

Demented in all the right ways ;) Love what you have done here, the chandelier would be the talk of a Halloween party! I also really like what you did with the doll in the locked cage, wonderful.

This screams fun! Great work!

Re: Light base repurposed into candle holder

Cute! I really like how you have it set up but if you ever wanted to change it up a bit, you might be able to put some flower foam under the larger center and put together a little flower arrangement through the center hole with jewels/bling of some type around the candle bases to cover the filler. So many options for such a great piece :)

Re: Teacup chandelier/candelier

Beautifully done, I am thinking about doing one of these myself soon. Love the choice of teacups and paint colors, and I do like the crystals.

I bet the owner was thrilled with her new signs! Nicely done :)

Great find! Can't wait to see the final product.

Re: should I paint it pink?

If you ask me.....

I say, we can pain, we can paint
Everything out of control
We can paint, we can paint
We're doing it from wall to wall
We can paint, we can paint
Everybody look at your hands
We can paint, we can paint
Everybody takin' the cha-a-a-ance


Seriously though, great find and if you do go for the paint be sure to post pics! :)

Re: Touchdown!

What a great way to display those football memories!

Re: Chippy Sconce Redo...

Great find and re-use. I also like the mirrored plate behind the lower one, very cute.

Re: Tiered Server

Thank you for the nice comments. I used E-600 adhesive to glue this together. It has some fumes so you need to work in a well ventilated area, but it holds better than other glues I have tried. I especially like how it holds up to water.

Re: garden angels

Great yard art, I really like the barbwire heart on the barn wood angel.

Re: Bird Cage Lighting

What a fabulous way to make a statement with your lighting. Love the shadows, a real conversation piece.

Re: Feet Shall manifest

Stunning work of art! Your pieces really come together well to create a full story/vision. Also, I like that you pay attention to the back as well, it is often neglected. Wonderfully done!


Wow, what a bounty! Can't wait to see the projects that comes out of some of it :)

Re: Camping Stools Turned Table

Beautiful! It looks like something you would pay a lot of money for at Pottery Barn :)

Re: Old white window frame

You can build a small shelf to go behind it and use this as the facing, you could even make it hinged and cover the opening with chicken wire. You can attach reclaimed wood into the opening and attach pot holders for terracotta pots and plant in them, or you can attach cut water bottles to plant in, or one/two small crates to hold kitchen or bathroom items. You could put mesh in the opening and hang on the wall as an earring holder.

Hope you have fun with what ever project you come up with, this is a great window frame!

I'm glad you guys like it :) It is freestanding, the bottom part is flat and since it is cast iron it stands very sturdily due to the its weight.

Re: "old School"

I also would love a set of these! I was thinking about lockers as a solution for my giant DVD collection (over 800, I may have a problem ;). I haven't been lucky enough to find a set for a reasonable price here. My plan though was to take them to an autobody shop and get them painted a cool color, but you can do that yourself too if you want to save a bit of $.

Re: French Bed Canopy

Beautiful way to create a canopy, very cool.

This is so wonderful! I am crazy for different table setting/decorating ideas and this is one of the best I have seen in awhile. I never thought of cuffing a jar but the result is beautiful and interesting. The old tea strainer for the candle is genius as well. So, to summarize, L O V E.

Re: My latest "creation"! Am I still having fun, or am I just losing it?
