Repurposed junk

I thought I'd share a few photos of my favorite pieces of "junk". I wouldn't call them shabby chic, but they are definitely shabby something. My Hubby likes to call them shabby shit! Hee Hee!

The old chippy shelf I picked up at a barn sale for next to nothing. I added scrap book paper to the back to spruce it up a bit. The tack board hangs in our kitchen. Just a little fabric wrapped around cork board and Wa-la!! It's a great place to tack the grocery list, reminder notes and photos. Now if only I could do something about all those unsightly outlets!! Ick!! The hall tree thingy hangs in our back entry/mudroom. It's a very small space, so this has worked out well for hanging coats and backpacks. In the winter I hang a basket at the top to store hats and mittens. You can't tell from the picture, but the length of it spans all the way to the floor. I'm a horrible photographer!!

So, there you have it. A few of my favorite pieces of junk!!

Good night!

LOL....LOL....Love what your husband calls it. Ya' gotta' love their sense of humor. My DH doesn't get it when I bring home what he thinks is junk then I turn around and sell it on eBay for a gazillion dollars. It just blows his mind. I love that mirror with the wreath on it. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. ~ Lynn
