Re: Junk Swap Set to Begin - Rules of Engagement

How do we sign up to be part of the junk swap?

Re: Projects-In-Waiting...

I think they would look great if you welded some of them togehter and made a headboard for a bed. You could also just hang it on the wall as is and use it for a picture/memo holder and use magnets to attach them.

You could put legs on the shutters and make side tables or night stands. Thats all I can think of now. Good Luck!!

Re: calling all ladies... here is a sheet metal high heel shoe i made from scrap sheet metal.

Love it. Isn't it great to have a way to escape and just be yourself and create.

Re: found some aluminum neon sign letters at the scrap yard

If these are something you are looking to sell, I would be interested in an H. What a great find. Big letters like those really make a statement.

Re: Help!!! Ideas Needed

Gretchen,

What a cool scale. I think it would be fun to put on a table somewhere and make it a season display piece. For example maybe some pine branches and cones for Christmas or other Christmas things. Pumpkins and gourds for Halloween/Thanksgiving and etc. for other holidays.

Re: My Creative Inspiration Desk

What a beautiful piece. I am now working on a desk that I had the same problem with. I am now down to the wood. I got the desk from the school junk pile. Tore off 1 layer of steel, 1 layer of veneer and 1 layer of plywood. I am now down to the real wood. I can only hope mine will turn out as good as yours. Thanks for sharing your idea.

Re: Sweet Little Potting Shed

Kari,

Your potting shed is like something I would like to do with one of the chicken coops we have on our property. Was this one in really good shape? One one I have would need a new roof. I was starting to think it would not be worth saving. Thank you for the picture and for the reassurance that I do want to do something with mine. It is AWESOME!!

Re: Newcomers Please Read

Thank you so much for posting that note of encouragement. You know God works in mysterious ways, I was just thinking I really just need to do this. I have been lurking on this site since it started. I can probably tell you at least 2 or 3 projects each one of you have done but have been afraid to respond or to post. Although I have still not posted a photo I am working on some things and hope to get pictures up soon.
Any way enough babbling, thanks again for the encouragement.
