I have always loved to make things from junk or things that other people seem to think are worthless. I have an endless supply of all kinds of junk and am finding fun ways to use it thanks to this site. My husband enjoys seeing what I come up with. I also enjoy quilting.

Re: "old School"

Ok, so I guess they are "keepers". I went out and bought a textured spray paint to give them a fresh new look. My husband built shelves inside them and I am going to put them in my sewing room to hold my material and sewing supplies. I do like the idea of drilling a hole in one and adding a little lamp inside one of the doors. If I don't like them when I am finished they can always go back in the garage. Thanks for the ideas, I will post a pic of what the finished project looks like.

Re: "Purse"analities!

No, there is no stench or smell when ironing these together.

Re: bus scrolls, vintage hand-made toy race track and big old industrial wheels!

I think the race car track is great! That would make a great wall hanging! What a conversation piece! Thanks for sharing.

Re: Latest Projects

Yes, the gear has a wooden handle which I think I will hang an old lantern from when I hang it up. The gear was found at my husbands farmstead. I have no idea what piece of equipment it is from. The snowman was painted with craft paint. I put saran wrap on the back of the screen before painting and then peeled it off when it was dry.

Re: Sprinkler is now a candle sconce

I love it! What a great idea!

Re: Gear Decor

Great idea! I love the way you put it in an arrangement for the wall. My husband just brought me one similiar to yours except it has a handle on it, so I am looking for ideas. Thanks for sharing yours.
