Thinking Outside The Box

Good Morning! For those of you who read HGTV's message boards you know who Sharon is. If you don't, you can read about her here http://gardenjunk.blogspot.com/. I have learned a lot from her incredible creations. One of the main things I have learned from her is how many things can be built from a basic box structure like this one (sorry, blurry picture).

My inspiration came from some great old glass fronted cupboard doors that I picked up at the thrift store. They needed a cabinet to go with them so this is what I built entirely out of scrap wood. That is the original hardware on the door. The whole project cost me about $3 and it was the second thing that sold Saturday morning at the Farmer's Market (the yardstick coat hanger was the first).

Off to the garage to work before it gets too hot--it is supposed to be 97 today 71 on Friday. Have a junky day (which is a great day in my book Ü)!


  1. Hello Fellow Junker!

    I finished my kitchen island/desk and LOVE it! Thanks so much for the inspiration, I will let you know when I have time to update my blog with pictures.

    I am actually using it as a desk right now until our new house is done and it will become an island. ;)

    Thanks again!


  2. Just wanted to stop by and say Hello from Australia! I am inspired by what you do, you have wonderful ideas and I will be checking back often for some copying! (But it's all good, because I'm on the other side of the world to you and my customers and yours will probably never meet!!!) I also love that you love Jesus!
    Have a blessed day,
