~OMG Cabinet Makeover & More Junk Finds!~

***NEW JUNK FOR SALE added to my Re-Funked Junk blog, you gotta click on the link and check it all out!!*** Ok... before the Junk goods I have to show off an old Medical Cabinet I just finished. Honestly I got this back in the early Spring, it was so crusty when I got it home I almost put it at the road for trash pick up!! Glad I didn't!!! I was having another one of those sleepless nights tonight where the brain is thinking of things I can create or things I need to finish...so I gave in and went out to the garage at 2 this morning (Sunday) and started on this sucker, I had sanded on it the day before but was not feeling too inspired by it. Finally at 5:15 WA-LA!! Done. Now if it will just dry by noon so I can take it to the Sleepy Poet along with a few other goodies....before I find a spot for it in my house!!! Sale price $185. I will get some better pics of it once I get in in the shop, I will post them over on my Re-Funked Junk blog , so be sure to head over and check them out there!!

A little Sanding, a Coat of Stain to seal in the wonderful chippiness along with two Big Ole Porcelain Knobs....I love it!! Wanna keep it!!
Nasty inside it was. A little to crusty for even the most extreme junk girl!! I think it had been sitting in that old barn for years when I found it. Before and After!!
Clorox and Paint, can create a miracle!! When my husband went to bed he said there was no hope for it..... well he will be in for a shocker.

Now back to the Junk finds....Well the weekend has came and almost gone...as promised here are the rest of the week and Weekends Thrifty Junk finds.... Our local Expo had its Antique event this weekend, I stopped in there first, the weather here is awful today so there wasn't too many vendors because the fear of rain. I picked up that White Base Cupbord while I was there. Nothing else flipped my junk meter while I was there. I think I may have been more excited on the drive there just seeing the things people have sitting in their yards rotting away, doesn't it drive you nuts to see that??? I see a piece of somthing in almost every yard I could use!! After that I decided to head to places and roads I have not traveled, they yielded me some pretty good finds today!!

I had to get this clock... It is chippy and it works like a charm. But... it was full price, the shop owner wasn't budging...not even a $1 !!

Old Chippy Medicine Cabinet, Rusty Egg Basket and Hook Board....


I believe this must be Tarnished Silver week, but thats ok with me, I will never get enough of it! The little leather suitcase was found at NEW Junk spot I found as I was driving around back roads today in little towns!! I love it when new places are discoverd... those places we hold near and dear to the heart!


Fabulous Thrift Store Find... the carving on it is beautiful, stands about 4 feet tall and is a heavy sucker!


Last week while I was away selling at my friends Shopkeeper Sunday this is what my Hubby was up to and I am in L O V E!! With the Vaccum, hehehe!! His company installs these systems. Last October I said that I didn't think I wanted Central Vac... well all it took was going over to take care of his bosses birds while he was away on vacation and taking theirs a test run.... had to have it! It is wonderful!!

Well I have gotta get to work, too many pieces piled in the garage, gotta make some sales and some room, it is almost impassable, if you see anything you got to have just send me over an email and I will get a price right over to you !!
Blessings, Janna

Wow - so coo to see your blog! Why do we love junk so much? Is it all about potential, or is it love at first sight, love it just the way it is??
