I love to read.
Mystery, historic times, all kinds of novels, you name it and I’ve probably read it.
Some self-help books are good but those aren’t my favorite because they have a tendancy to bore me. 😉
Right now, I’m all about reading books about junking.
Do you ever feel like you need some junking inspiration?
My junking inspiration comes from reading how other people arrange junk to make the most beautiful decor for their homes.
I have read so many blogs about how the person writing the blog was born to junk and they have been junking their entire life.
Well, I’m here to tell you that I am not that person.
I definitely cannot say that this was what I have been wanting to do my entire life.
We have thrown out so much of this stuff my whole life! I didn’t even know that I was tossing out a treasure!
Needless to say, after I started junking, I was hooked.
I am amazed at some of the stuff they make out of discarded junk!
So today I’m going to share with all of you my top 5 of the most amazing books for Junking Inspiration!!
2. Salvage Style: If you are wanting to learn about how to decorate with repurposed, refurbished, and vintage items, this is the book for you. Beautiful photos are shown throughout so there is no guesswork on how to decorate with the perfect flea market find.
3. Junk Beautiful: This is a how-to book that will take you through each renovation adventure, from shopping for junk materials to the actual projects. They also include a complete materials list, down to the paint chips and fabric swatches!
4. I Brake for Yard Sales: You might recognize Lara Spencer from Flea Market Flips.
This book shares her secrets for bargain hunting.
She tells you everything from where and how to shop to how to decorate with it.
5. Flea Market Fabulous: I love Flea Market Flips so much that I had to include another book by Lara Spencer in the list.
Lara not only tells how she finds an item, but she also gives awesome tips for decorating room by room.
I hope this list gives you some junking inspiration like it has given me.
These books will definitely help you find that junking bug that you never knew you had if you are new!
You might even find some inspiration in these books if you were born to junk.
So let me know in the comments which one you are: new to junking or born to junk?
