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 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.


White Painted Furniture Is Beautiful.


White Painted Furniture Is Beautiful.

I spent most of yesterday painting furniture. Let's face it, I'm getting older, my hands go numb, I get stuck in a crouching position and I can't get back up! Seriously, it takes me days to recoop....but there is nothing like seeing the finished masterpiece. That is when I remember why I love pieces painted white. They are so fresh, like a breath of spring air.  Refreshing.

The contrast to painted walls is spectacular.

See what I mean.

Always so bright and cheerful. Believe me we need that in the Pacific Northwest.

Crisp and clean.

But not all things have to be white, color is fun too.

We  have plenty of painted furniture in all colors at our shows !
