I Did It!

I finally did it!fb business page header

Restyled Junk now has a Facebook page.

I still need to get an official Facebook button on my blog, but in the meantime here is the link if you would like to take a look…and maybe like it. 😉

The process reminds me of a favorite quote from the movie “Hope Floats”.

“Beginnings are usually scary, endings are usually sad, but it’s what’s in the middle that counts. So when you find yourself at the beginning, just give hope a chance to float up. And it will.”

So…I’m at the scary beginning, but I’m giving hope a chance to float up. So far the response has been encouraging.

I hope you enjoy it.

Upcycled Ladder

6-DSCF0521Upcycled Ladder

1-DSCF0404This huge ladder almost didn’t make the move from the old house to this one. Finding a place to store it until I got around to restyling it was a big consideration.

Ultimately I couldn’t stand leaving it behind and I am so glad I didn’t. These ladders were finished in an afternoon. Really! Sheesh! Sometimes I can talk myself out of starting a project when I think it will be bigger than it actually turns out to be.

2-DSCF0405The ladder was about 16 feet long. Keeping the placement of the rungs in mind, I cut three smaller ladders as close to the same size as possible. They are the perfect height for displaying quilts and other vintage linens, or they can be propped in a bathroom as a towel rack.

Enjoy!
