Junker's Challenge...Superbowl style!

We've been busy here at JunkFest implementing some cool, junky ways of serving up game-time treats....just in time for Superbowl Sunday!

Pick your beverage...whether it be soda, domestic or imported beers, or even wine, galvanized is the way to chill! Just add ice...or snow like we do here in the upper mid-west and you're set.

Now that you've got your beverage, grab a plate and let's get started. Below is Andrea's oh-so-perfectly-rusted plate rack, which once housed vinyl record albums. This find was pure junk serendipity!

Add some tarnished silver to the mix, as SweetMelissa did here with her pretzels and we've got another great patina in the starting line-up.

Where to set that pizza? Well, any old cutting board will do, but if you happen to have one of these just laying around...score!

This is a piece I picked up in Oronoco a couple of summers ago. Some clever junker either found or cut a piece of wood to fit perfectly on these old wood-stove legs. After cleaning up that wood and conditioning it with food-grade oil, it's ready to roll. Works great for cheese & crackers too.

Prompt your messy eaters to clean up after themselves with rolled napkins neatly tucked into the base of an old clock.

Who wouldn't want to eat their vegetables when they're stylishly served on an ornate rusty old grate?

No time to roll up those fancy Vanity Fair napkins? No problem! Just set out a roll of paper towels. Mine is resting comfortably on the base of I-don't-know-what, with a vintage curtain rod inserted into it.

Chips 'n salsa....a staple in our house....fits quite nicely on an old bulk scale.

More salt anyone? Don't forget those beverages on ice! You'll need those to wash down the peanuts and pistachios.

Here, I've used an old wooden capital base, inverted and holding a plate of salted-in-the-shells.

Don't forget the potato chips (did I mention salt?) and dip...ala light fixture and mason jar.

And for you sweet tooths out there (you know who you are) this tiered dish of treats needs no further instruction!

There you have it folks! Time to get your game on! Please enter the link to your blog post (not your blog) about your creative, crazy, or funky ideas for those game time goodies. And...don't forget to mention this challenge in your post so you can share all these great ideas with fellow junkers!

Of course I wouldn't forget Funky Junk Interior's Saturday Night Special....check out the talent folks! Just click on Donna's button on the sidebar....another great party!

  19. That tarnished silver made me think about some of the old stuff we have in boxes in the garage. My husband was in Afghanistan for Superbowl, and I can't bear to do sports without him, so I skipped it altogether. But he should be home in time for the Stanley Cup Final, so I'm going to head out to the garage and start looking for some of that cool old stuff. You guys know how to throw a party!!

  20. i don't even watch football but i would have joined you for some good fun...snacks...and a chance to see all those fabulous junkfest creations!
    well done girls!

    looooove it!
