Editorial Policy

Petticoat Junktion was founded in 2011 with the goal of helping homeowners create a warm and inviting home. We feature tutorials on home improvement projects, painting furniture, upcycling and repurposing thrifty items into unique decor, and miscellaneous DIY projects.

We aim to give readers a starting point and the basic information they need to complete crafts, DIY projects, and simple home improvements.

Petticoat Junktion has evolved over the years to include favorite recipes, gift ideas, travel destinations, and seasonal decorating. We hope to give everyone the confidence to showcase their personal style in their home.
