A Whole New Crop of Junky Punkys

At this time of year, everything is fair game...

Orange painted vintage tins with knob stems

If it's round.... it gets painted orange...

Painting a metal lampshade orange

Jello molds, tart tins, lamp shades....


Metal tins all painted orange

Because when I add a furniture knob to the top...

It became a Junky Punky!

Vintage tins painted orange with wooden knob stems in a basket

My friend Carlene at Organized Clutter made some Junk Pumpkins once that I fell in love with....

I thought it was so cute that ever since then I paint everything in sight orange in the Fall.

One year I even painted a light fixture and made a Light Fixture Junky Punky. [HERE]

I use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Barcelona Orange... it sticks to metal fabulously!

When the paint dried I sealed it with Miss Mustard Seed Tough Coat.
