We at AlchemyJunk are completely addicted to decorating, and from this addiction this blog was created. If you answer YES to any of the following statements... we'll see you in the 12 step program ;) just kidding... who wants to stop this joyful madness?!
You know you're a Decoraholic:
When you go to someone elses house for a visit and you can't help but mentally redecorate for them.
When you go to a movie you cringe when they break that beautiful furniture in stunt scenes
When you get out of a movie your conversation goes something like this:
Hubby: "That part where that guy jumped out of a window into the nile river was so awesome!"
You: "Ya I know! I LOVED the drapes that were hanging in that window! I think they would look great in our guest room!
You consider that blockbust film that everyone is raving about "not so great" because you only got 1 good decorating idea.
You're hubby comes home with a boquet of decaying barnwood instead of flowers... and that's a good thing
When EVERYTHING has design potenial from an old metal trash can to rusted tirechains.
When everytime you go to see the doctor, it takes total restraint to NOT rearrange the waiting room furniture
for better traffic flow.
When you see the new shade of lipstick at the department store and you buy it only because it is the perfect accent color for your living room that you've been searching for for weeks.

We bought a $2 piece of metal. Made templates from contact paper. Traced them on the metal and hubby cut them out with tin snips.
I had to grind the edges with a dremel tool. They aren't perfect but they are CHEAP!!!!
and then I spray painted with this:
