I made something out of the box of wooden stuff that I picked up this weekend. Now,it's not exactly architectural or anything, but by golly, I made it start to finish, hung it up and it is being used. All in one day.
I nailed a rosette to the top of a piece of trim, painted it white, sanded it to make it shabby and worn looking, screwed a hook onto the front of it, added a hanger to the back and wah-lah - Junk in use! ANd, the nails, hanger, screws and hook were all in my junk drawer. No cost junkerating. (That's my new word. Junkerating. Patent Pending.)
I also cleaned up the old Ball and Mason jars I have been picking up lately. I added my vintage mint-y zinc lids that I got for 50¢ last summer.
Peppermint Sticks, Buttermints & Vanilla Tootsie Rolls.
Brown Rice & Popcorn.
Rice & Rotini.
Buttons, SOS Pads & Marbles.
Everything looks better in an old blue jar!
