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?
We want to tackle a pallet wall and we think we have found the solution with this fun project...it's actually more art on the wall than a wall itself.
Here is a good look at the market that started it all! The Great Junk Hunt in Puyallup started in a small gym and has grown to over 30,000 sq. ft. at the Washington State Fairgrounds! We have over 120 vendors with awesome Junkin goodness and thousands of shoppers to the show.
Now with shows in multiple cities across the west coast, we are spreading our junk love! Our happy junkers are what really make our show special and worth doing what we do. We hope to see you at our next show in your area!

Sometimes keeping it simple with one color is just enough.
