My friend Aprile is guilty for turning me on to junk shopping. I think I'm becoming a little addicted. You can find some junk that can be turned into something really fun! This was an old wooden shoe shine box. With a little paint, distressing and a fun knob, it turned into a cute little box for something special - not sure what I'll use it for, but I like it!
Ok, now for my grand poo ba of junk finds this weekend. I've been wanting to make a coat rack for my girls' room to hang their sweaters on. Aprile and I looked for an old shutter to turn into a sweater rack when I visited her a few weeks ago - no luck. So, look what I found this weekend at the Salvation Army for $5:
Yes, its an old twin headboard and baseboard. Are your wheels turning, can you see the possibilities? Look what it turned into - I'm so excited!
The sweater hooks were the most expensive part of the hole thing. I added the base board above them to make a picture shelf. Here is a close up of the sweater hooks:
I'm definitely getting addicted to this - sisters and nieces, want to come with me?
