So many times decorating with Junk can feel heavy. Here is the lighter, more chic side of junk! Using a limited, yet vibrant color palate, you can achive a serene and beautiful space in your home.
An industrial galavinized French flower bucket makes a shimmering statement in an otherwise limited color scheme of pink, green, and white.
By limited the color palate to pink, green, and white, you can achieve light and airy look, while using salvaged and repurposed finds, like this concrete bird bath topped with glass used as a night stand. 
Think inside the crayon box! Just because something isnt a color that will work for you dosent mean you cant change it! A coat of party streamer pink transformed this corner cabinet from an eyesore into an asset!
You dont have to change everything, even if it is imperfect! Imperfections add to the charm of an antique, vintage, or repurposed treasure! Take for instance the chipped, shabby patina of this antique cast-iron bed. It wears its wear and tear with pride!
