Christmas Junkers United, A Vintage Sled, A Holiday Mantel and a Link Party!



It's Junkers United Round-up time again!


This time we are showing you our very
best Holiday ideas!

My Junkers United post this season is 
a project and a Holiday mantel.



The sled is the project... dragged home by my
daughter one summer day, found in the trash of course.

It has a beautiful old patina, a little rust and 
just the right amount of vintage charm.

I painted the center boards on the sled white,
distressed it, then added the words LET IT SNOW
by making a stencil with my vinyl cutter.

I left the red sideboards as they were because they
just couldn't get any better than that.

Along with a few of my favorite junky & rusty things...

I created a beautiful Holiday mantel that can be 
left up into the snowy winter season.

  11. Remember my house number used to be 12 also? I painted a twelve on my sled a couple of years ago. Can you believe I gave it away? I purged so much when we moved. Regrets. Looks awesome!
