~What I was able to Junk Up this Weekend!~

It has been a long stressful week at work... so what's a girl to do, go get some JUNK!!! I went to one of my favorite places Friday, I can tell you it was HOT out huntin' for it all, my clothes felt like they were melted to my body!! No trying to look cute that day! I put an updated pic of the booth on my blog title pic above.
This is my favorite find of the week...Chippy Old Childs Desk...and the best part it needed not one ounce of work...except for one board to the bottom, I had just the perfect old piece and we nailed it right in. The Keep off the Grass sign is adorable, don't know why it was put there but I like it!!!


The Chippy Screen doors FINALLY made it to my booth.....and I hope they find a new home soon! They are too cute to sit around.

Right as I was finishing up and got everything situated the Turquoise Cabinet from the previous post sold!!!! YIPPEE it sold... but YIKES... I was so pooped I has to re-arrange the hole it left. So this was the best I could do for today, I had just nestled it in on top of the old bench... then she was gone!!


I had to take some photos of things that make my heart skip a beat....Old Rusty Scales.....


Chippy Paint Rusted Turnlocks...


Old Rusty Hinges....


~Last but not least...This Weeks Thrifty Junk Finds~
Found this old white cutie at a thrift store this week... already painted so all that is left for me to do is chippy it up and add some new hardware!! Old Birdhouses, had to get those!! They need me to chippy them up a bit , a little to Blah for my taste. The feedsacks, tons of potential there!! *Update White Dresser SOLD*


I have to admit this was quickie picture because it is just too stinkin hot outside... more makeovers. The Brown Cupboard.. I noticed when I rinsed it with the Hosepipe, yep you heard me right, everyone makes fun of me for saying it... but coming from a Southern girl, waterhose, gardenhose what have you sounds to strange for me!! My husband tells me there is no pipe attahched to it anywhere..anywho it is white underneath, maybe possibly chippy white, we'll see how it turns out.
And that Brown Old bench, well it has SOLD and it is going to be beautiful chippy yellow and turquoise when it is picked up. I can't wait to get done and let you see the afters, I think I may have a few more makeovers in addtion to these in the works so keep a check they will be done soon or at least I hope the will!! Thank you for stopping by, I love hearing from each and ever one of you all. And not to mention the inspiration I get from all of my blogger friends blogs! Have a great rest of the weekend, Blessings, Janna

I love that "Keep off the Grass" sign too! It makes me chuckle just to think about what kind of "grass" they are referring to! Anyway, great finds--they were worth the wet hot sticky clothing!
Thanks for sharing!

Love that scale you have! Too bad I can't say that for my own that I have to "step on." ugggg that thing is evil somedays.
How do you chippy things up so well?
You share secrets or what? lol
I have stuff to paint and sure wish I knew how to do it up right!
Glad you found some great new junk! I didn't get to go much this week...

Well it is a hose, and it's attached to a pipe. So there. You must be the hardest working woman in the business, Janna. I miss the energy you have.
