Re: Junk Holiday Part 2

I would use the cart for the bottom of a coffee table. Love all of your stuff!

Re: Bookends

What a clever use of old sewing machines! Thanks for the idea.

Re: TV Console needs help!

I would make it into a pie safe. Gut the insides -- make shelves for the pies/storage. Take out front panels and use chicken wire for inserts. I would then place on top of a buffet painted same color (perhaps a colonial blue) to make them worked together. Whatever you decide on please post and show us the results. Good Luck.

Re: ~ Megaphone Vase~

Love your idea! Had the same megaphone a couple of weeks ago and I made it into a cheerleader lamp. Turned out adorable.

How about covering a lampshade with it -- round and round. Would look great in a young man's room. All of the other ideas are also fabulous!

Re: My shagalicious headboard. Don't try this at home, kids!

Love it! The headboard looks real "man-ly" and would look great in a teen's room. But who has that much time on their hands! Your ideas are great -- keep them coming.

Re: What's Under That Glass Dome?

Jenny, thanks for the great idea. I usually don't even look at old trophies, but now I will. "One man's junk is a woman's treasure". This is "cream of the crop" junk! Love it, Love it, Love it....
