Our FAV Junk Sisters are back on TV!


Junk Sisters.....set your DVRs!!!!  They're BAAAACCCCKKK! 
Tomorrow night June 12 at 8pm on #GreatAmericanCountry.
We were super thrilled to receive a special SWAG box from Aimie and Jolie the other day in the mail. It was chock full of all kinds of Junk Gypsy goodies, including a DVD of  Season 2 of their show!!! We popped some popcorn and hunkered down for some good ol' junkin' fun. Let us tell you.....it did not disappoint!!!We couldn't stop watching. We believe these girls have truly found their home, what could be more American than good old ingenuity mixed with a little Texas twang. Aimie and Jolie have that and more. Great American Country is the PERFECT home for them! This season is full of 'REAL' junkin' adventure, the girls really get down to their roots and show us all how it's done! It's fun to follow them as they create from barnyard finds and wood piles. The stuff all us Junkers dream about!Great job #Junk Gypsies #junkgypsiesjune12 #GreatAmericanCountry #funkyjunksisters



Below is a fun pic of all of us in the Junk Gypsy tent at Round Top....not sure where Aimie was....probably creating something Junktastic in the background!


In honor of the #Season2 premier tomorrow night, 
we are giving away some cool stuff from our SWAG box.

The Funky Junk Sisters at The Stagecoach Music Festival

We arrived bright and early Thursday morning to begin our design for the newest addition to The Stagecoach Music Festival...The Honky Tonk Dance Hall. Boy was it warm! A little too hot for a couple of girls from the Pacific Northwest to be setting up in, we were so excited we nearly passed out! Here's a pic of the beginnings of our main stage area. 
 We used vintage channel letters and old doors for the back drop. 

Here's the Funky Junk design team hard at work.


 Lights are up and the finishing touches are being prepared. 

 Our Honky Tonk had a DJ in it much of the time....here's the backdrop we designed for her. Look closely and you will see Betsy the cow in her stall equipped with chandeliers. 

Finally finished up after a long 12 hours....hit the sack for the night to get plenty of rest to play (also known as PARTY) the rest of the weekend!



Stagecoach graffiti. We totally agree, don't ya'll?

Nice to see our name on the official Stagecoach Festival brochure. Did you know 65,'000 fans attend this event? It's no wonder cuz it's an absolute blast! 

Gotta say the whole Stagecoach crew treated us like real JuNK QuEEnS! 
Every meal was delicious and the very best part....
the fabulous "up close and personal"
 concert tickets we were treated to. 
Thanks Stagecoach for a wonderful experience. WE CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT YEAR!!!!
You will see some of our Stagecoach stage set up at our next 
Funky Junk Sisters Vintage Flea Market 
on June 20 & 21 in Puyallup, WA.

Heading off to California next week for Stagecoach!

We hit the road again next week. This time we will be doing something a bit different.

So for the past couple of months we have been scouring the west coast for all things
HONKY TONK! We are super excited for this opportunity.

  We will do what we do BEST.....
caravan a butt load of funky JUNK down to CALI, find a way to put it all together 
and make it look fabulous!! We got peeps takin' pics for us so we can 
share those with you on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

Mid Century Modern Furniture Part 2 Color!

Here are some ways to add color to a mid century piece. 
A geometric pattern pairs well with the sleek lines of a modern piece. 


Below is something a bit more sutble...but still a conversation piece. 


Bold but EASY! Just remove the drawers and the knobs and paint. 


This tall dresser has been painted and papered for a softer feel. 



Painters tape will help you create this look. 


The 70's gave us furniture with ornate carved like design. Seriously, it could look very ugly, until you play it up with a little paint, like the dresser below. 


Sometimes keeping it simple with one color is just enough.
