Happy New Year

It’s hard to believe that it is 2016! Thank you to all of our loyal customers!!! We look forward to a great year at Junk Mama’s General Store and growing our business. We have some fun things planned for the year.

If you are a regular customer, then you have seen our chair in the front room change for every season. If you haven’t seen it, then here is a little history…

The upholstered chair started like this…pumpkin chair1A

In October of 2014, our resident artist painted the chair, fabric and all, with a pumpkin theme for Fall.

pumpkin chair1F

pumpkin chair1P

In November of that year, the pumpkins got turned into ornaments for Christmas…

evolving chair1

The chair celebrated the new year in 2015…

new years chair

And, it wasn’t long before hearts graced the chair for Valentine’s Day…

evolving chair val1a

There have been more changes to the chair since then, and for 2016, we decided that a new color scheme was in order. So, we gave the arms and legs of the chair a fresh coat of Buttercream from The Dixie Belle Paint Company and the fabric got an update with Dixie Belle’s color The Gulf.

jm evolving chair1

The chair looks pretty like that. But, you know we can’t leave it alone! Help us come up with a design. Email us at junkmamasgeneralstore@gmail.com with your ideas.

Do It Yourself

Are you a DIY fanatic? Or, do you just dabble in DIY projects? Maybe you want to do it yourself but are intimidated?

JM diy

Whether you are a pro at do it yourself projects, or are just getting started, Junk Mama’s General Store can provide you with great pieces of furniture at reasonable prices. Here are just a few of the pieces that we have in the store now that given a little attention would be beautiful.

Looks like someone tried their hand at DIY on these 2 vanities. A new coat of paint and they’d be gorgeous!

jm diy1J

jm diy1I

Either a fresh coat of stain or paint and this vanity and chest of drawers would be stunning. Only need one piece? They’re sold separately.

jm diy1B

jm diy1A

Need chairs? If the style of chairs is different, paint can bring them together!

jm diy1D

jm diy1E

This piece is a little dated with its stencil design but, of course, paint can fix that! And, who doesn’t need more storage?

jm diy1F

Drop leaf tables are perfect whether you have a small kitchen or if you do a lot of entertaining and need extra dining space for you guests. Just open it up when you need it, then fold it down for more living space.

jm diy1H

This small table would be the perfect size for a dorm room or small bedroom. A fresh coat of paint would give it new life!

jm diy1C The detail on the base of this large dining table would really stand out if it were painted!jm diy1K

Of course, we have a lot of pieces at Junk Mama’s that need no work at all. But, if stained wood isn’t your style, then it’s easy to change with a little paint.
