This week I was inspired by some of my favorite girls, The Junk Fest Girls from ND. I even recently had the pleasure of meeting Andrea (although we didn't have time for junking or a glass of wine).
The Junk Fest Girls know rusty, crusty and fabulous and have been inspiring me for some time.
Look at this recent pantry door they created--they give a great tute on it too.
Here is a beautiful, junky display they showed off for So You Think You Can Decorate:
Love this old rusty heater (?) repurposed into a great wine area.
And here is just one picture from their fantastic fall junk fest sale.
When I saw this great centerpiece by Andrea, I knew I needed wanted to make one too.
I dug around in my junk (neatly organized in a dresser in the garage I'll have you know!) and this is what I came up with. The main piece is also a canning jar holder, like Andrea's and the candle "holder" is a campfire toaster.
I used doorknobs for added interest and tied a #8 on the side.
Flowers would be great too, but I felt more in a candlelight mood seeing we got 5+ inches of snow today. I used a piece of a coffee sack as a cloth underneath. Note to self, don't put the words that you most want to show in the middle of the square that will be covered up by the centerpiece.
