More Good Junk...Some Fun Re-Use Projects...

Still prepping for Junk Bonanza here!  Remember the great old window crate I shared in a post earlier this summer?  Well, look at it now!  My husband built an industrial style table with a heavy duty typewriter stand base and the crate became the top.  An old board added for middle support created two open sections.  Fun, huh?   I have a thing for old wheels...

 I took a side tray off the stand and created a magnetic message board with vintage bottlecaps...

These great numbers came out of an old wrecked up record player the yellow color and crackled finish...

Here's a basket full of lovely old funeral flower baskets...

and another creation with a bit of a macabre past...the industrial base on this table was an old casket carrier!  Did you see the glass topped table with a base like this in the recent Flea Market Style Magazine?

The top is from an old sewing table...the yardstick decoration looks so great...

And look at this rustic lady!  A little shabby...but so fun!

We've been having a lot of fun getting all this junk together and making some great new junk, too!

I am joining Debra over at Common Ground for  
Monday Marketplace
