Don’t you love a fun party? I do, being “Good Time Charlie”, as nick named by my Nana, who lived with my family while I was a teenager, I haven’t changed much. I love a good party, especially the kind where I am so inspired!
Thank you to everyone who sent such sweet and heart felt birthday wishes to me! It was such a lovely day to share my birthday with the Easter Celebration. Most of us probably don’t get to spend our birthdays relaxing and enjoying an extra special church service. My day was just perfect.
Speaking of perfect, there are some perfectly amazing features here today. Merci, Merci! To everyone who shared their talent here last week.
You may have seen this lovely Shutter turned organization station around, but I had to share this too from Denise on a Whim. I love the two toned blend of colors she did, so much that I was inspired to try it on my Dumped Dresser this week too!
I am loving the updated look of stripes on classic pieces. And I just love what Susan from Uniquely Yours or Mine did with hers. The lines are so crisp!
I try to spread the love around, but darn if this girl isn’t just the most amazing and PRECISE of furniture artists!! Shari at Turnstyle Vogue is at it again. This time, taking a traditional style dresser, with the scrolly front and all, popping that scroll off and making it into a very updated piece for her home. You must go see the post to get the whole story.
And speaking of gorgeous furniture makeovers. This is from my Cassie at Primitive and Proper. Cassie didn’t mean to remove so much paint at first, but when the wax she was using starting removing some of it, she just went with it! I call this a gorgeous happy accident. Plus, the gray just looks like it belonged on this table from the start.
I have a LOVE/HATE relationship with my sewing machine. These days, we are not speaking terms again. I had it repaired, with a stern warning from the repair guy that it (the machine) was basically a piece of (CRP)……..Which we paid too much money for. Anyhow…..back to the feature, if you can cut a straight line, then you can make these gorgeous ruffle curtains. From Maison Pax. Awesome tutorial on how easy it is, all from inexpensive Muslin!
I know there are so many different ways to make a good sign, a good stencil, etc. This is one of the easiest, 3rd grade skills all that is needed. If you can trace, you make this, and the clever girl at May Richer Fuller Be, shares an excellent tutorial on exactly how to do just that. A perfect sign.
Since we are sharing a few tutorials here, I thought I would end it with a great recycling project. Now this is a Redoux!! From Lilikoi Joy, she shares how to take the top of a box, like a gift box, and make it into this gorgeous decorative tray. The options are endless!
And LOOK! I am sharing something new today. I would love to get all the features here, but you might be reading this post for the next couple of hours. Instead, I am now sharing extra favorites at my Facebook page. If you haven’t had a chance to “like” me yet, be sure to hop over through my Vintagey looking Facebook button on the right side bar.
