Hey there! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We had a change of weekend plans that worked out just fine for us, we roll with it. But, you aren't here to hear about my weekend or to hear that I got to finish a book... nope, you are here to see the great furniture that everyone has sent me. So, let's get started with
Rachel at A Little Bit Vintage
Rachel sent in something that I have been lusting after for quite some time....
A vintage steamtrunk that she uses for a sidetable
Don't you love it? It has such a cheerful new life and I bet that extra storage is great too
Next up is
Cassie from Primative and Proper
She shares 2 makeovers,
first a sideboard that she didn't keep (but wanted to... I know that feeling!)
and After... love the combination of the aqua and the stained top! And the curves....
And here is a piece that she lugged home to paint for her daughter's room
my son was so sweet and told her he loved her dresser, and it was just like the color of Cinderella's dress!
I adore the aqua and the white painted pulls...
Next up is
Mary from Staged Right
Boy are we seeing a lot of aqua or what? No complaints... I love me some aqua!
Check out that fun trim!
Alright... now we have a bargain hunter!
Terri from Shopgirl on a Budget
You guys are going to die....
She got this sweet piece for under $12
I didn't forget to add a zero....
And this piece she updated... it was $7...
Looks amazing!! I want YOUR goodwill...
it just isn't fair *whines*
Okay, here is Heather from Blessed Little Nest
And here is what Heather says about her table:
It was my grandmother's table and she gave it to my mom. It was in my house as a kid and then my mom gave it to me. It was barely holding on
and eventually just became a pile of pieces until my hubby and my son put it back together and painted it for my birthday this year. They worked
together to paint and sand it, and then to wax it. I love that her table has found a new life in our home. and I really love the way it works with my
orange headboard and the neutrals in my bedroom.
What a great birthday gift! I love pieces that have such meaning behind them.
Okay last is me.... and Kate
She is finally finished....
Here is the before:
and here she is now:
She got a couple of coats of distressed grey paint
Some new hardware (that Mr. Hughes adores because it was super simple to put on... sense the sarcasm)
and a cane back
I painted her cubbies aqua blue
I love cubbies! I think I need to find some more *stuff* to fill up her cubbies and get something extra special for that mini cabinet!
I know the writing is really, really faint.... but, look closely at what I found in our paper stash...
yes, that says Kate
see, it was meant to be
I had the hardest time deciding... green on blue or blue on green... I love a great green with aqua...
I knew I wanted a print of some type... but I couldn't find the perfect wallpaper.
So, I improvised and ordered some woven cane... I adore, ADORE cane print!
It is hard to see, but the green is the same green I used on the Michelle chair
Did I tell you where I got that color...
I had them color match a kate spade bag.
My favorite green of all the greens!
This girl is quite useful too...
the drawers hold our scarves and hats... well, one does.
The other 2 are keeping up with the clutter I have created around the house recently.
Okay, thanks to all the ladies that submitted their favorite finds... it just makes me want to shop more.
I will be back later this week with a bloggy tour of a local shop that I love...
bye for now!
