Kitchen paint finished! / Challenge

If you are visiting from Funky Junk Interiors Copy Me Challenge. Thanks for stopping by and please come back again soon to check out what's going on.
I am new to the blogging and would love to have you as a follower. 

I have been working on my kitchen as part of one of my new years goals to focus on my home and all those projects I have been wanting to do.

Finally my kitchen is ready for me to begin putting things back in order. The walls and trim work have been given a fresh coat of paint, outlet covers are all nice and clean, and all of the holes have been filled. All of this just in time to participate in a Blog Challenge.
I am new to the blog world as far as participating however I have been a stalker FAN of Donna at Funky Junk Interiors for a while now.
I was telling my son I had found a fellow Junker and showed him Donna's blog, his response was "Oh you like her because she has stuff like you." So when I saw the Copy Cat Challenge I was so excited but it's more like kindred spirits than a copy cat. 
Then I realized my house is a total wreck and all my stuff is everywhere except where it should be. So what's a girl to do?

I started by going out and getting my old wood door and then continued adding all my favorite things. I am no where near having everything the way I want it, but I didn't want to miss out on the challenge. (Especially since junk is my thing)
Talk about funky check out this picture, I am still learning how to use my camera

The following pictures are some of the things that I was able to get pull together. I will post some more pictures later of a complete kitchen reveal but these are for the challenge. I hope you enjoy my funky junk style.

A few wrinkles from being stored.

This was used to draw water from a well. When I was a little girl my grandpa would use one like this to draw water up. I always wanted to help pull it up and my favorite part was getting to pull the release and letting the water go in the bucket. Best water you ever tasted!

I hope you enjoyed some of the things I had to share. I wish I had more finished but I am just glad to be getting some of my things out. If you are a lover of rust and all things old go over to Funky Junk and check out what everyone is sharing.
