A Few Junky Projects

It's been a crazy week around here with non junk related pesky problems that ate away a lot of my time.  A couple of visits from the plumber and some other money draining repair issues sure kept me busy, but I did manage to put the finishing touches on a few projects I had been working on.

painted metal vintage filing box stenciled grain sack repurposed
I purchased these two metal filing boxes at a yard sale a few months ago.  Both of them were a mess on the outside, but the inside of the drawers were spotless!

After painting this single drawer box with Annie Sloan Old Ochre, I taped off a grain sack pattern and stenciled away.

I had fun making earrings with newish glass buttons and vintage steel buttons.

My next vintage show isn't until mid April, so I decided to list some of them in my Etsy shop.  

vintage glass door knobs repurposed coat hanger vintage yardsticks
The old drawer front I bought at an antique show last month makes a perfect base for a door knob coat/accessory hanger.  I had just enough bits and pieces of old yardsticks left over for one more single door knob hanger.  You can see more of my yardstick boards here, here, and here.  I sure miss the days when I could find loads of old yardsticks for $1 each and glass door knobs for not much more than that!!

Love the natural chippy paint and the pretty carved handles.
