I'm going to a Party!

There's a party going on over at Me & My House and I'm heading over to join in the fun. Consider this my RSVP. If you want to come along, just click on the badge below. Hope to see you there!

Most of my junk is not redone, or reused (though it happens occasionally), but is redesigned. That means I usually have to break out the tools and put in some work, but I'm able to use a greater variety of junk and definitely can get better prices on things (often free). I've been junking longer than blogging so here are some of my favorite projects that otherwise might not have been posted. Here's what I'm bringing to the party:

One of my earliest and BIGGEST projects when I began junking a few years ago. A couch made from doors.

A candelier made from............okay, you guessed it, from a coffee table bottom turned upside down.
Who says hall trees have to be elegant?

I waited all day to get this iron wheel from the auction (ended up paying $1) because I knew it would make an awesome mirror. It did.

Those vintage wheels don't just hold photos, they really spin!

Say "cheese"! Or maybe I should say "Can you turn off the light?".

Kind of Pottery Barnish, but it's really pure junk.

I've got the world by a string! Well, at least the birds do, anyway.

Office organization, AND JUNK? Oh, yeah!

Who doesn't love tin ceiling tiles? There's always a way to put good junk to use. And I always have fun doing so.
That's it. Besides, I've gotta go. I have a party to get to!

Everything is so cool! Your style is very unique. It reminds me of Margo the robojunker.

You have done some really great things to your junk. I really like the couch. I have an old bench made in the same fashion.
