About Me

Hi, my name is Elaine Canaday.  I am the wife to super hubby, Mr. Man, mom to three awesome sons and a child of God.
By day I work at a full-time J-O-B that pays the bills and for which I am very thankful.  
By night and on weekends I transform into ...
Junksterchick - a fun loving, bargain shopping gal, who in her pursuit of one-of-a-kind furniture, is willing to dumpster dive, pickup curbside freebies and take junk that others would throw away.  I transform these cast-offs into re-purposed, functional and beautiful pieces for my home and others to love and enjoy.
So what is Junksterchick Creations?
Based on Isaiah 58:12 (MSG)
"...You'll use the old rubble of past lives to build anew, rebuild the foundations from out of your past.  You'll be known as those who can fix anything, restore old ruins, rebuild and renovate, (and) make the community livable again."

It is fun, quirky, functional, wild and practical home decor based on some of the elements I love...
  • Industrial elements mixed with wood
  • Galvanized metal and rusty influences
  • Soft, cushy, feels like home textures
  • Girly froo-froo with Victorian and French influences
  • Vintage, shabby chic meets farmland functionality type furniture
  • Artistic, out-of-bounds, don't color in the lines style
This blog is a chance for me to explore the creative process, one piece of "junk" at a time, share tutorials, inspiration, projects, photos and whatever else happens to land here.

I'd love to get to know you so please leave me a comment or sign up to become a follower via email. 

Life is precious and I appreciate you taking the time to stop by.
