Anything Goes

Hi everyone and welcome to the latest challenge here at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog. We are going with an 'Anything Goes' theme for the following two weeks and are looking forward to seeing your vintage/shabby chic projects.

The overall winner will  receive a $25 gift certificate to go on a spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. And the winner, along with our top three picks from the remaining entries will receive badges to display on their blogs in recognition of their outstanding contributions.

The guidelines for entering are simple; create a new vintage or shabby chic project following the challenge theme, link it below to your post (not just your blog) and also include a link back to this challenge in your post. You can combine our challenge with up to 10 challenges (including this one) to be in with a chance of winning. If you are entering through a public forum (such as Instagram) you'll need to include the words 'Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge'. Make sure you follow these rules as unfortunately, we have had to eliminate entrants from the prize draws in the past.

The Design Team share their own projects below to get you started. To find out more about each of them click on their blog names.
