Church Pew

Junk Chicks can be a little shabby too!  I took this old church pew, and it is really cool:) and gave it a coat of paint, and then another coat and made it crackle...added a wire hook and an antique Ball jar.  I wish I had a pink Hydrangea but alas only a white one here...and I think it looks great!  Can you imagine this in the old church decorated for someone's wedding?

Mirror made from old door

This is one of my favorites, I took this old door and made wall mirrors out of it, I think they turned out great, the smaller one I made the mirror look old ~ really old like it had been around for-ev-er ~I added some trim and they are just so cool.  I left the knob on the one mirror and the hinge on the other, just so you could tell what they used to be~*~  They gone :)

It is really hard to take a picture of a mirror without getting a picture of yourself!  I like the flowers much better :)

Secretary Desk

Well, I found this little secretary desk, in all it's 1970's brown laminate color.  But it was just begging to come home with me.  It was just so cute and I had a what can I she is in the driveway, I forgot to get a picture before I took off all her battered up knobs and pulls. 

So after deciding what color...Lord that is the hardest part...the color!  But I had found the awesome yellow that I painted my bookcase a few months back and I really thought the two would go nicely together....first a coat of black and then the yellow...a little distressing that really doesn't show up too well in this picture..but I honestly love how it turned out.  And it will be for sale at the Antique picks and Crafty Chicks event in November.  Oh..unless I decide it should stay right here with me!

Have a darned good week!

Getting ready for Christmas

Well, I know it is kind of early for some, but I am making signs today.  This is one of my favorites.  I make the door and add the rusty hinges ... barn doors are in short supply so I make my own.

Are you ready for an Olde Time Christmas?  I really am!

Junkstock 2013

I just had to post a picture of one of the things I made for Junkstock this year.  An old ironing board that I was lucky enough to find.  Bought some letters and attached them, along with some hooks and it turned out great!  It sold right away and the nice lady that bought it just loves it!

I just wouldn't mind doing laundry if I got to look at this every time!

Custom Table our Junk Stock booth in the summer.  A really neat couple came by and wanted to buy one of my door turned coffee tables.  Except that it was just sitting there waiting for the Junk Hunks to come by and take it to the new owner.

I offer to make another table for them, and although the tables are always one of a kind and you never know exactly what it will look like when it is done, they decided to take a chance and had me make a table for them.

It took a little while for me to find the exact right table to do the trick...but here it is...all done!

I hope it is love at first sight when they come to pick her up!
