Link Party #81 and Mes Préférés!

Happy almost weekend friends! I missed you all last week, but I hope if you were in America, you were celebrating a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We had a blissfully quiet year, but it ended with friends over for dessert and lots of craziness, so the day balanced out 😉

There were so many great “Redouxs” to share, I did try to visit all of them.  Thank you so much for everyone who stopped by to share their projects.  Let’s get to it!

You know the word “Free” as in furniture gets my heart beating rapidly….this clever girl from Weathered Pieces not only found something free, it was a Thomasville free buffet, with pretty much everything perfect.  She gave it an updated look with a Modern Masters top in Gold and the rest in a gorgeous white.  She added those damask stencils in plaster too to make them really pop, then used rub n buff to make them shine.  I think this piece is a winner!

Do you ever come across drawers that are missing the bottom runners?  I do, and it is so frustrating because I usually think I can’t use them.  Not anymore!  Reposhture Studio shows the easiest way to fix this problem, for only 1.00.  Now, you can’t beat that with a stick, (or dowel). … corny humor hasn’t left!

Looking for a new idea of what to do with an old window, or more specifically an old cabinet door with a glass insert?  My Painted Stuff has a really fresh new idea.  She used one of my favorite Graphics from The Graphics Fairy, then sprayed right over the Graphic with Frosted Glass Spray paint, and now it is a dry erase menu board!  There are endless possibilities for this great idea!

This story starts out sad, an older woman had a fire in her home, where many of her treasured antiques were ruined, but happily not all.  This repurposeful gal from The Rustic Pig saw beyond the soot and rescued this adorable little dresser/sideboard.  Lots of elbow grease to remove the soot, and it is better than ever.  I love the Marble top insert.  I would LOVE to find a piece like that!

I am loving all the hundreds of interpretations of wreaths around the blogoshpere, but I love it even more when I see something different.  This is from twelveOeight, a clever twist on some old standards, a twiggy wreath, some book pages, and a sweet little nest.  She brings them all together to make this fabulous sparkly wreath.  Love it!

I love a good pillow makeover, and this one could not have been easier.  As in, done in a few minutes easy.  The Concrete Cottage took napkins she found on sale at Pier One Imports and made them into pillows.  The finished edge of the napkins made it super easy to sew up, no cutting, measuring, nothing.  How clever!

I sew, (hee hee) love a good upholstery makeover, and this one is fantastic. This bench was in baaaaad shape when the talented gal at Comfortably Carried Away started with it.  But after a lot of work, and she shares all of it, and a completely updated look, it is fantastic and worthy of all the attention it is getting!  I love the name of the post where she shares this too, the “All Done Settee”.  What a great way to wrap up my party!  All done for the week!
