Junk Chic?

I just can't stop.

I found more buckets and I just had to paint on them.

Look at the patina on the fleurs bucket.  I really wanted to keep this one.

I've also been making coat racks out of some old moulding I found.
This one has bird hooks that I painted white and distressed.

When I was deciding what to paint on these buckets, my husband suggested some things that were not exactly what I had in mind (I'm sure he was aware of that).  I said, "No, I want it to be romantic." That's right, I want my junk to be romantic.  So what should I call this style?  Junk Chic?  Romantic Junk Style?  Any ideas?  Or is there already a name for it out there?


I'm joining Saturday Nite Special at Funky Junk Interiors.


  1. So cute...they look like Romantic Prairie Style to me. :)))

  2. I think you have a great look going on in your matter what you call it! I got 3 buckets at a garage sale yesterday and I'm thinking...

    P.S.--The next blog I read after yours was Dreamy Whites. She's calling it French Farmhouse. I think that is a good description of your look too.

  3. They're fabulous I love them. The Fleurs one is gorgeous. Hugs, marty

  4. I have the same black ash bucket that we use for ashes and wanted to do something to it so it would look "chic"!!! Guess I need to paint something on it!

  5. I don't have a name for the style but whatever it is I like it!! Everything looks gorgeous!!

  6. They look beautiful...french farmhouse for sure!

  7. So so beautiful! Love them and the texture of the burlap. Beautifully done. I hope you will share this at my VIP party today =)

  8. Those buckets are so adorable! xoxo, tracie

  9. I love it! Great job.
