Junk? I think not.

Pretty Dressing Table from Junk
This pretty dressing table made from junk appeared in Country Home a couple of years ago. I thought Country Home was the best it had ever been the last two years it was in production. I miss it. Nice that they still have a website. 

I love how elegant this vanity is made from an old metal door chained to the wall with a vintage mirror.
From the same guest house. Love this bed made of old doors that have been upholstered. I'm dying for a wingback chair similar to the one pictured. I love that butterfly back.

Look at these bedside lights. Inspirational to be sure. I've been wanting to hang small chandeliers on either side of my bed for ages. It would solve the problem of Newman scooting the lamp over every time he gets on the night table to look out the window. 

Hope you are having a great weekend. The rest of my carport is coming down today. I'll feel like I have more real estate once that is done. No more dark cave behind the house.

What a great place! I love the vanity table and bed...such creative uses.
My parents had chandeliers hanging on either side of the bed. I'd like that myself. Love that idea!

I remember that article but never realized that bed was made from a door. Cool. Glad you posted it!
Thanks for the comment on my digs. I'm still having it tweaked but it's getting there.
