I am apparently a “Junkologist”.

One of my dear friends gave me the title of “junkologist”, and I think I like it! It totally describes me to a t! I love to find me some junk and Loulou it up. Case in point. Take this hideously tacky old office double seat:


I mean, could you find anything UGLIER if you tried?? I don’t think so. I gave this old baby a new coat of aqua spray paint, recovered the cushions, and made new pillows. I covered the seats with drop cloth and made them envelope style, so I can take them off and wash them as they need it. I used some Jennifer Paganelli fabric to make new covers for some old pillows. I love the end result!

Who woulda thunk it? It’s now a precious place to sit….



This project was a total FREEBIE! The bench was given to me, and I had everything else needed to redo it. This piece would’ve ended up in the dumpster, but now she’s a perfect cutie for my porch.

SO, I guess I am a junkologist. Should I trademark that? :)
