Donna Williams of Funky Junk Interiors was recently featured on Apartment Therapy. She is a pro blogger known for her unique decorating and her one of a kind furniture. I’m overwhelmed by the charming details in her home but what really gets me is that she made almost everything in it by hand, a mix of salvaged wood, metal and natural elements.
Donna calls this her white trash bedroom since everything in it was, more or less, garbage. She made that headboard with a gate from the dump, an old door from a burn pile and everything else from thrift stores. She uses ordinary objects in new, surprising ways. Think dada or surrealism for the home.
This is not a meat grinder.

Head over to the Unique Projects section where she teaches you how to make anything from a mattress spring bulletin board to a staircase made completely of old crates.
I know. You can read more about this talented lady over at Apartment Therapy.
Joy + James’ apartment is full of vintage finds and DIY projects. Every time I visit I’m impressed with their creativity and playfulness in the décor. See James’ tutorial on how they turned an old ice box into an entertainment unit.
My new favorite hobby is bouncing around the antique stores downtown and finding interesting things to play with. We’re going today and I’m excited to see what we’ll find! Last time I went I got an old shipping crate for the foot of the bed and some shutters we plan to make a headboard with. Funky Junk is really inspiring me to be more imaginative.
