Funky Junk

I'm loving the "Would You Buy It" blog party at Junker Newbie.  If you haven't checked it out, stop by, it's alot fun to see what everyone is buying and to also find out what everyone thinks of your purchase.  So, here's my latest junk purchase...when I saw it, I knew I had to have it.



Would you buy it?  Can you guess what it is?  And, any guesses as to what I am using it for?  The transformation was simple...I gave it a good cleaning with hot soapy water, making sure not to scrub any of the patina off,  and then I simply added a candle.  I love it, but would really love to hear what you think!



Oh yeah...it's a "jack"!  Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

  3. Love the patina. That is a very clever repurposing.

  5. Ooh! I love it! I just found an old gas line cover in the road, cleaned it and I'm using it for a candle holder too... I love yours!
