Love Junk?

About ten years ago I bought an antique dry sink at a yard sale and passed it along to a friend of mine.  She loved it until last summer when it finally gave up after the bottom dropped out and one side split in half after so many repairs.  It was destined for the curb until I volunteered to bring it back home again to see what parts could be salvaged. 

I love junk!!

The before shot.

Three new treasures made from one piece of junk.  Harvest Gold isn't exactly a color that appeals to everyone, so I painted each piece with CeCe Caldwell chalk paint.

How about some chalkboard love from one of the doors.  The knob on bottom is the original and I added a couple of rusty pulls on the sides.

The backsplash became a nifty rack for hanging clothes, accessories, jewelry, etc.  I left the original paint on all the wooden knobs, just gave them a little cleaning and some wax.  

Who doesn't need another junk drawer?  This one holds some junky junk I picked up last weekend.

I lined the inside with a piece of sheet metal, stenciled JUNK on the front, and kept the original handles.  

 I still have the other door, two side pieces from the backsplash, and one board from the back that didn't split when I was taking it apart.
Not too junky now.
