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

6:00:00 AM

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...
