Great Ways To Use Old Ladders

We know ya'll come across rickety old ladders at garage sales. Most men don't see the value in them so they toss em' out for garbage, after all, if they are rickety then they can't be used for their original purpose...right? 

Sooooo WRONG...

Chalkboard art a la...Funky Junk Style

Mom aka Funky Junk Sister #1 is moving. Yes, she is selling her house.

She spent more than thirty years in this home and guess what? She collected alota cool junk! It took weeks to move her and it took me just a few seconds to claim all the things I wanted. That's right....you see all of us girls laid claim to our stake a long time ago, so mom knew exactly what each girl wanted. She piled things up neatly in stacks labeled with each of our names. So all we had to do was load it up! I went home with a truck load full. 

Next, we had to get the house ready to sell, which meant staging it. She had plenty of stuff to do that with but my favorite was this old door. A few years back I painted chalkboard paint on the middle section of it and we used it as a prop at one of our Funky Junk Sisters shows. I found it hidden in the back of the garage under a bunch of stuff. I pulled it out and decided I needed to chalk a saying on it that would appeal to the heartstrings of a buyer. This is what I came up with....I placed it at the end of her bedroom hallway and called it good. 

Now lets hope a buyer loves it and the house as much as mom did. 

Come to one of our Great Junk Hunt Holiday Markets and you too can purchase some of Mom's cool JUNK! Don't miss out on one of America's Top 25 fleas...The Great Junk Hunt formally known as Junk Salvation by the Funky Junk Sisters.

Mason Jars, Denim, Burlap & Bling

A few years ago we did some styling for The Washington State Fair...it was their Round Up auction. The money raised is for scholarships. This year the theme is Denim & Diamonds.

 We started working on the centerpieces for the tables. 

A little bit of denim, a little burlap and alotta BLING! Wouldn't these be cute for a sweet country wedding?

We will be workin' on this all week so stay tuned for more ideas and don't forget where ya'll can find us next...November 4-5 we will be at Evergreen State Fairgrounds....on November 18 & 19 we will be at the Washington State Fairgrounds Puyallup, WA.

We love this repurposing idea. What a great way to use an old wheelbarrow. We're thinkin' it would be best to have a wheelbarrow without a rubber tire!
