Junkin’ Projects

I have finally gotten around to a few projects with the junk we found at the junk yard!  Here’s the elephant statue all painted up and pretty with a teal pot and pink flowers:

Don’t mind our mud pile of a yard.  All this rain has made the place a pit!

We also painted a few pots for the back yard.

And, I painted the little lantern from the junk yard teal as well.  It sits on the front porch.  I also made a tiny table for a few drinks out of a plant stand and a clay pot bottom.  This project was inspired by Crafty Nest, so check out her even cooler project here: http://www.craftynest.com/2009/06/plant-stand-lazy-susan-mini-side-table/

Did you also notice the antique lantern on the floor?  That’s from my grandma.  It even has a globe made by Pyrex.  Very neat.  Any suggestions?
