Old farms have the best junk and that's where all the components originated to form an unusual way to hold candles. This rusty Barn Door Roller and an old Wood Level might not have much in common but they sure were meant for each other.

JunkArchitect writes: Hi Annie, I’d use an old wire bicycle basket attached to the door to hold magazines. The 100 year old door is probably too cool to hide and the basket is more transparent than a toy.

pofolksdecorator1 writes: Hi Jim,
You have some kool "junk masterpieces". I have a question maybe you can help me with. I had a hundred year old door installed in my bathroom. My bathroom is tiny. I would like some super unique magazine rack to put on the bottom. I was thinking, old doll crib, but I would have to saw it in half lengthwise to attach it to the door - one on each side. Can you think of something else for this. I collect vintage toys. Maybe a vintage semi truck with open area for magazines? Thanks for your ideas!

georgiamoon writes: Jim, what a warm and cozy atmosphere this creates. This is truly beautiful. It's funny how you can take rusty, hard, flaky, old stuff and turn it into something so soft and inviting. You are so talented, I am always so inspired by your creations. You are the KING of junk!
