We had a store called Funky Junk in downtown Fargo, but sadly, I think it closed. It was one of my favorite stores to walk through. It had a cool mix of old furniture and new accessories and vice versa. It was just the look I was going for in my home. I can certainly dream. With the large amount of hand-me-downs that we acquired, there would be no way to style my home the way I want. It would just be too costly.
I happened across this cool website one day on Facebook. A friend posted a link to it and I had to check it out.I love the styling of the website and the photography is phenomenal. It makes me want to jump into the photos and live there. The amount of content on the website will keep you busy for a long time.
The creator of the website got started with boulevard shopping. I personally love the idea of taking trash and reusing it. Re-purposing is so much better than recycling. Unless recycling is the only option, then it’s better than throwing it in the landfill, by a long shot. I definitely think that there is a certain level of creativity required to successfully re-purpose trash. But Funky Junk Interiors has it!
Some of my favorite posts (these photos taken from Funky Junk Interiors website):
I love the brightness of this photo. Lots of re-purposing here. An old ladder, gate, and door. This is just proof that there is another use for what many others would see as trash.
And finally, I need this desk, made from pallets. There are so many things that you can do with pallets. I actually wanted to a remove a pallet from someone’s boulevard this spring cleaning week, but my husband wouldn’t let me. He thought it would just sit around in our garage.
This blog gives me inspiration to create funky interiors. I look forward to other new cool inspiring blog posts to come! You should also check it out!
