Decorating From Nothing to Something... a JUNKER'S Full Home Tour.

The best thing that ever happened to me is when I was forced to start my life over again, having little funds. Creativity was a must in order to decorate my home.

Everything you see on this home tour was created from nothing... meaning, from found things, such as pallets and recycled fencing board.

Today, my favourite shopping places are STILL the curb, thrift stores and garage sales. It's become about the hunt... and how efficient I can make something. I'm finding that while I can buy if I desire, I don't really need to. I still want to continue to put my rustic stamp on everything I make.

I truly believe, all it takes is belief in yourself along with creativity, in order to fill your home and in turn, love it even more because of the effort YOU put into the builds.

Tutorials are attached to each picture. And there's more to the tour via the blog link.

Happy JUNKIN'!

Difficulty: Moderate
