Hope I can do this someday - love it! Xoxoxo
Great sense of humor! Love it - xoxoxo
Never thought of doing this! xoxoxo
Hard to believe it's the same piece of furniture! xoxoxo
Never fails; as soon as I finally get rid of something; I wish I hadn't! Great job. xoxoxo
Great re-purpose! xoxoxo
I love this idea; will have to look for one this summer! xoxoxo
Santa loves this!
So, did it sell? LOL xoxoxo
OML - I have the same wheel - my's unadorned as we speak but soon it will be "dressed" for the occasion! Thanks for sharing. xoxoxox
I'd love to work in this office! xoxoxoxo
How did you do this? Love the colors!
I freak out whenever there is even a possibility that a Utility person will have to come down the basement. My hub thinks I should throw it all out. I told him, when he throws his boat out - I'll throw my junk out! Problem solved. LOL
Awesome - love the re-use!
Love it - is the jar glued on to the wheels?
I missed it AGAIN - going to try & hit the next one!
Do you still have a booth at Hixton? I love all your goodies!
Very original - love all your re-purposing!
Stamps purchased at Michael's? I was avoiding that Store - guess I'm busted now! Thanks - you are so amazing in all your projects. xoxoxo
WOW - some mailbox - wish I found one like that!
OMG - how did I miss this post? Love it - I only have one egg crate - guess I better keep it now!
Ditto to all the prior comments - just awesome plantars!
Great idea - I have several shakers I can repurpose!
I got my chicken feeder back from the consignment shop - I was so sad because I thought it was sold. I'm never going to do that again; now I just have to find a rusty grate & vintage faucet handle.
I have sprayed WD-40 around the edge (let it sit for awhile); then used a rubber-hammer to pop it off. Hope this works for you too!
Great organizer for aprons too!
Never in a million years would I have thought to use old bathtub legs as curtain holders - you definitely think outside the box - LOL.
Gorgeous - just awesome - I can only imagine the hard work you put into this. I have so many incompleted projects - you really have the love & passion for re-makes!
Wow - that vaseline trick really DOES work - great job!
Great job camouflaging the bumps & bruises. I can see I spend too much time using wood filler - LOL. You should show these photos to the person giving away this dresser; he'd be shocked!
Be still my envious heart. . .this is utterly Spectacular! You really think my hubby could do this too?
I can see why they sold at the craft fair - I LOVE all of them!
Lucky party people; sorry I wasn't invited - LOL.
I can't believe this re-make!!! Very clever.
Didn't know about this - will have to keep in mind for next year. Planning to go to Oronoco in August!
Clever, cute, & useful - could be used indoors too for a room divider, etc.
WOW - love this!
What tool did you use to cut this milk can? Thanks!
Love the "can" re-make.
Love the re-model - just perfect!
I LOVE this too! So creative.
Someday I'll learn how to post pics too - I have one of those fireplace (old) inserts - it's frozen to the ground outside as I speak so will need to wait for a winter thaw b/4 I can bring it in the house.
Besides the bookcase, I love the jar tops in the 4th photo.
"Cool" idea - great way to keep ice cream cold in addition to party dips/cheese balls, etc. I hit a lot of stores; never saw anything like the i.c. dishes. Love them as much as I love ice cream. The "25" serving tray is so appropriate too.
How creative & "bright" idea to use the flashlight as a vase! Just amazing ideas to discover every day.
Love the details on the frame - I have a ton of frames - I'm going to do this (some day - LOL).
I love the new "doors" - great inspiration to keep your pantry tidy!
BTW, how was your party?
Welcome & thank you for the great inspirations! I'm going out to my car to retrieve an old clock I was giving to G.W. LOL!
I can make one of these - I have the perfect window!
Thank you; I'm going to try several of the sites mentioned.
Love your bench - fast workers too!
TX for info on Multi Strip!
Love this reuse - I want to make one like this!
Great ideas - very clever!
How did I miss this idea? Awesome
You're amazing! Santa loves your tree topper.
Do you still have your booth in Hixton?
I have an antique gate - so many ideas to use it but this is my FAV!
I love rust - I'd leave it on - LOL
You are so talented - it looks old - love it!
Planning to be there!
The coasters look like sunflowers - just add stems! Fun projects to work on.
Talk about creative - wowzie! How cool for a gas station!
I want to make some of these too - what glue did you use? TX
Love this - so cute!
Looks real to me - can you give us details on how you made this? TX
The wood is BEAUTIFUL - what did you use to get it this way??? Just amazing & thank you for the rescue!!!
Great re-purpose - love it!
May the "married" pieces live happily ever after!
I love windows too; great ideas - looking-glass paint is on my shopping list! Just bought chalk-board paint - tried NOT to but just too many ideas from all you JM'rs --- LOL
My friend has a dog & a cat; uses "clean" chamber pots for her dog/cat food!
TX for the pics - it does look like a Bonnie & Clyde car!
Another great save - love everything about it!
This is just too cool - what a way to re-cycle tin!
Guess I didn't have enough coffee yesterday when I questioned what the base was - well, it jumped out at me this a.m. --- good golly - it's architectural wood! LOL
I want this!!! Clever
Love the flowers; what is the base?
So happy I saw this project b/4 shopping this weekend - found 3 old trowels at $1 each! Yeah - tx for the inspirational idea.
Sue, I miss your "Simple Monday's" projects! Will they return?
Fav of pulley ideas!!!
Love the look, the idea, etc.
I save EVERYTHING - pretty soon you'll see me on the "Hoarder's" series on TLC & A & E!!!
HELP. Seriously, I do save weird things but they seem to work for me too.
Welcome to JM - for being a "newbie," you have tons to work on - it won't take long b/4 you're addicted to this site!
Can you make rub-ons with a Cricut? Your bottles are the best!
How did I miss this bathroom - I can imagine a bubble bath would be soooo heavenly!
When can I check in??? I could live in this room 24/7 --- now I wish I didn't sell my "old" bedroom set; but at the time, it sounded like too much work to re-do. Too bad I didn't see these photos to my selling!!!
You can now be on the "hunt" to make one for yourself - that's what I tell myself after "seller's remorse." Then I try to vision the new happy owner!!
WOW is right! Also for WISCONSIN - go Badgers! I hope it makes the trip too as I see many hours into this one-of-a kind window. Love it.
I love candles too --- I paint them with craft paint & candle medium if I don't like the color.
Amazing that the star was already on the glass - I'm on the hunt for a set like this!
Love all the photos - I'm partial to the shoe forms!
You definitely put the "spring" into our long-awaited SPRING! Love it.
What a fun piece - you could dress her up for the four seasons! Where did you find her?
Old floor lamps are excellent coat racks!
I missed seeing this great project - love it!
It's a good thing I don't work at GW - my house would be filled to the rooftop! I get so excited when I shop at GW; sometimes my cart is filled to the brim; other times, nothing (that's when I really have withdrawal).
It's a "slam-dunk" for sure!
Beautiful paint job - what brand did you use on the black dining room set? I love the butterfly chair too!
You scored big time!
When's the jump? LOL
You looks like you are VERY organized --- great idea!
You could turn the blocks around & do the same project with the words "NOEL" & just flip them after Xmas for the words "LOVE" - that is seasonable all-year!
Have some frames - now I need to hunt for those cute baby shoes!
Your elbow grease was well worth it - awesome re-make of another window!
Your time spent cleaning the old wheel was well worth it. Most unique clock ever!
Great fireplace for "Santa" - just an awesome display!
My dream too but at this stage of my life, it'll always by a dream - hopefully, in my next life? LOLLLLLLL
What a funky-looking purse -
I missed this post - awesome frame, etc. Love everything about it!
I'd love to join your Super-Bowl party - how clever & fun re-use!
Could not be a more "perfect" marriage - wowzie!
Great re-purpose - are you related to Sue??? Just kidding. Welcome to this awesome site with tons of ideas, etc. It's my morning "paper."
Love all your projects! Keep them coming.
I luv rusty - but these are classy - shiny - pretty!
Luv it! Another great recycle.
He IS scary!
Did you use gorilla glue on the vase & vintage door knob? Love it all!
I wonder if some old door springs would work??? Will have to ck this out as I'll need this for my first grandbaby!
If I'd stop reading & drooling over all the JM notes - I'd probably have a clean house! My passion for "Junking" is so deep - LOL! Love all the creative vignette's you have & am hoping to find an old test-tube holder.
I found several of these chalkboards in the garbage but only had room for one! I put it out when I have a garage sale indicating the SALE; I could sell a ton if I had more - because I'm not giving up my one & only! LOL
This kind of picture frame is VERY pricey where I live - now I can make my own! Thanks for the details.
I love this - how did I miss this?
I made an extra bedroom into my "Christmas Room" - just so I could enjoy my fav's year round! I love your display - looks like we're in a deep-freeze anyway so might as well enjoy the "glitter."
Another great idea to file!
So charming & unique!
I love this window idea!
I normally have my first cup of coffee while I browse JMS & at first I thought that fringe "thingy" was a mop - good gravy, I NEED more coffee! Then, when I read in sequence what you did, OMG, I would have by-passed that fringy lamp in the first place. What a "brilliant" transformation!!! Kudos to you girl - you DO Rock.
WOW - Let's roll to the music - fantastic re-use!
Now I know what to do with my "extra" pump! Luv it.
I'm just amazed what people throw out --- they have NO imagination whatsoever --- but praise the Lord for us "JUNKERS" to come around & try to SAVE the world landfills!
Very clever - like the idea of a "glove finger" for the snowman hat! Do I have time to make these yet??? Maybe next year.
New "ice" idea - will I ever throw out anything??? No WAY!
I luv the mirror shape; u r good at "Etch-A-Sketch"; WOWZEE
Now where did I stash that canning jar holder???
I'm definitely stopping in for a closer look - LOL
I luv this too - amazing how some greens, a country tie, & a bell make this old picker looks just charming!
I spray painted my vintage lamp like yours; added votive cups where the lightbulbs USED to go; inserted candles. I just love it! I'm going to embellish it with some greens for Xmas.
Knock Knock - who's there? Some more goodies to grab - why, oh why do us junkers love old door knobs & their accessories so much???
Remember to leave me milk & cookies when I stop by on Xmas eve - you better watch ME as I might have to snatch up some of your goodies, or better yet, leave me "JUNK" instead of the cookies, OK?
I have a hard time NOT picking up any more windows - I really don't have any walls to hang them on - but I still luv them & try to sneak them in my "stashes" of things I like!
Maybe a table cloth on a circular table - with some kind of candle, globe lamp, map of something, etc.
Yes, a clock with a hang tag or something that it's always "time for chocolate."
I want the tables, your organized, clean workspace, your mind, etc., etc. Great details with the whole project!
What else can I say? Measures up to our "standards."
New shopping idea - TX - so unique -
I LUV rust AND red - my favs. So cute with the scrabble words, photos, etc. Yep, you were a happy camper back then!
I LUVVVVVVVVV the lettering, etc. WOW - I hope your son joins "Junk Market"!
Another great re-use --- our ancestors would be proud!
Love all the ornies; however, my fingers "hurt" when I look at the clothespins (which I love) but all the work!!! Oh my.
Luv the displays!
Cool - how did I miss this one?
I have an old bucket like this waiting for the day to use it for "something" - I have plans NOW! TX for the "clean" idea - lol
All I can add is "Amen" - love it
Did you paint the baskets too?
Yahoo - another great save!
Wouldn't you know - I just donated my microwave glass turntable - I'll have to buy them back. LOL
I paint everything I can but never thought of painting the "inside" of a coffee carafe. How cool is that? Love the AMBIANCE it creates. TX for sharing.
Wow - a great save!
I just LOVE this site --- it's like going to school! I didn't know I could use Bri-wax to seal rusty prims. Yeah.
Thanks for the "STRIPPING" info - now, I'll have to find it. I've used QRV but it's out-of-business - it was wonderful!
I think that's MY skirt - no kidding - I used to have one like that & gave it to Goodwill - too funny.
We have an antique sale going on in Rice Lake, WI, this weekend - I am going back to buy the single snowshoe I saw yesterday!!!
Another great display - luv this one too!
It must be too early for me - where do you get a "clip-on" lamp kit? LUV the flag too!
I'll take it for $5 - LOL - what a deal - lucky duck!
What paint stripper did you use?
Wonderful re-purpose! Love the jar photo accessory too. I want it.
It is cute & I also started projects & as I got into it, it turned out to be mountain rather than a molehill! Congrats on finishing; so where will it go now?
I just dumpster-dived a bathroom cabinet - yeah, now I'm going to try this idea!
You are SO creative - is that a mirror in the third pic behind your decor?
Do you know how far Rice Lake, WI, is from your sale?
This is so practical & cute at the same time!
Definitely one-of-kind - just awesome!
Is the middle glass painted with chalk-board paint?
I hung country-plaid material in my husband's gun cabinet - now I feel like painting it!
I LOVE Briwax - it's one of my favorites for spiffing up vintage wood items.
I want this!
Love, love, love it!
Where do you get the glass-topped typewriter keys you use in your cool projects?
LOVE, LOVE, this idea!!! So creative - esp. with the curtain rod holders.
"Wish" it were mine! Could you hang a "barn" pulley from your hook & change the bucket of flowers to fall leaves, winter evergreens, spring tuplips??? I love the tin roof & the Texas star add-on's.
I have a collection of old alarm clocks; I'm trying to re-use them by opening the clock up & taking out the "guts" & replace with a modern clock battery. Has anyone tried this yet?
Do you have a maid?
Looks original - like it belongs there! Yahoo
I couldn't figure out what to do with my chick feeder either; I can't wait to rig this up for a new night light in my kitchen! Oh I LOVE your idea.
You've won the "Junker's Lottery" - I'm so jealous!
I want to do the same with my screen door; however, how did you hang the mirror?
You "GOT IT" - too bad for the ones that don't! That leaves more junk for us who got it---have it, want it!
Upside down rake as a shelf? Why didn't I think of that b/4?
Amen to all the posts already written - what more can I say? Now I want to do the same---just to show my friends what fun "junking" can be!!!
Was the glass "frosted" b/4 you painted on it?
I hang my small, old garden tools from a similar rake
I have an old typewriter (came over on the "Mayflower") - wish I had that stand to display my antique! I have a metal file cabinet & my "antique" cassette tapes fit perfectly in it.
Make great door stops; bookends; love this new idea! I have quite a few as my Mom worked in a shoe factory!
My husband would have had me "committed" if I did a project like that so you are lucky your hubby helped - looks like a lot of work but I love the re-cycling idea & the future use of the springs!
I use my "bread box" to hold bills to be paid!
I love ALL of your stuff!!!
Now I want my Kerosene cans BACK! Are you selling these? If so, how much?
Awesome - one of a kind - almost too cute to use!
I'm so jealous!
I live 50 miles north of Eau Claire - do you sell your treasures out of your home?
I live up north & love to shop at Hixton - I'm going to check out your booth!!! Probably bought treasures from you. LOL
What did you use to tie them together?
Unbelievable - so creative - I'll never be able to get rid of ANYTHING!!! LOL
What gauge wire did you use? Would old clothes hangers work?
What ever made you think of using cinnamon?
Did you paint the suitcases yellow?
How lucky the washboards fit the window - I have a window in my laundry room - will see how I can make this work! Love the idea!
Did you hang this on a wall or is free-standing?
I'm just curious on how you got about pricing all these treasures that are posted on JunkMarket.
Did you make the picture frame that is next to the goblet? If so, what is it made of?
I'm so hooked on this website; first thing I check in the a.m. & just can NOT believe all these outstanding projects --- I love all the creative ideas but most of all, the "re-cycling" - so dear to my heart!!!
I use my husband's old minnow bucket (the strainer part) for a luminary. Simple!
Is it attached to the wood? Or is that just a background thing?
Is the handle an old barret?
I'm sure the local Thrift shop wonders what I'm doing with all the "junk" I buy - LOL. Now I'll be looking for a large hoop. Actually donated one in the past; should have kept it!
WOW - love the look PLUS the idea - better use than an ash tray!
I have a very small, old white porcelain cook stove; I keep my cookbooks inside the door. I like the wood burning idea too!
Are these "bobbin" spools? If so, I'd put one in my laundry room with my old clothespins and/or next to my sewing machine and insert with material, thread, etc. Cool idea!
Makes me wonder what my body will be re-cycled into in my "next life." LOL --- great project!
I live in WI so I know about the "spray painting" problem. Our garage is insulated so I do "mini-spray" jobs by inserting my to-be-painted item in a large cardboard box; then spray!
Could use chalk-board paint and design an original chalkboard! Also, could paint a checkers and/or chinese board, etc. Tie the eraser and chalk with a ribbon attached to the underside of the chair.
So what did you do with the wheels or are they still attached to the wagon?
I would attach to a vintage board---a circular mold as a "flower" and glue a vintage button in the middle; appropriate cookie cutters, etc. as leaves; and cut an old, black wire-coat hanger for a stem.
Could also use the molds as candle holders and add vintage marbles, sea shells, river-rock, etc. around the candle.
I knew I should have kept Grandma's old lights - love the creative wreath!!!
Just had another thought - if I do find a toboggan, I can use it by my desk; hang it "upside" down & use that end to hold my mail, magazines, seasonal flowers, etc. Would also hang family photos.
If I find an old toboggan, I'd like to use it with the photos as a small-room divider, and/or in my year-round Christmas room and add Christmas photos from the past.
Is the card on "paper" or "material"? Where do I get this iron-on adhesive? Am I having a brain-freeze moment here or what? LOL
I have a "Fels-Naptha Soap" grater in my laundry room; attached an old, original-wrapped Fels-Naptha bar of soap with country-tied ribbon. Sometimes I actually "use" the grater!
I absolutely am a firm believer in "recycling" - it's amazing how creative we are with "JUNK" - I've always been a dumpster diver and am proud of it!
