Oh, girls! I wish I could give big hugs to all of you for the sweet comments you left in reply to my big announcement. I haven’t read through all of them yet, but I assure you I will. They are such an encouragement to me as I stand on the edge of this new, scary journey. I’ll expand on it more in another post, but I want you to know that your comments (on some of my posts in particular) have a lot to do with why I’m getting published. So, thank you. Just so you know what to expect, I will still post on my blog daily and am trying to rework things for next year so I can be more purposeful about posting tutorials, how-to series and encouragement. I hope my blog will get better and better. And, while I’m scaling back my space at Lucketts for a while, I still plan on being a vendor at the May fair and hopefully picking things back up when the book is under control. More to come on all of this, but let’s get to FFF and my favorites from two weeks ago.
I am going to confess it right now…I do not like waterfall furniture. It’s just not my thing. I don’t like the lines of it or the Bakelite hardware it normally comes with. That said, Anneke from RustiChic has shown me that I am a fool. She took this waterfall dresser and transformed it by painting a blue & white union jack on the front. The graphic design masks some of the awkwardness of the waterfall style. It’s just perfect. I love, love this piece. Like, “I would totally buy this” kind of love. Thanks, Anneke, for broadening my horizons.
The Rooster from The Rooster & the Hen gave this cast-off dresser mirror a new look with pallet wood. What can’t people do with pallet wood? I mean, really. It looks chic and rustic all at the same time. This is a great idea for a tight budget.
Beth from Sunshine on the Inside used a plan from Ana White and made her own factory cart. I think this is brilliant. Those things can be super expensive and difficult to find, so making your own is a great way to get what you want. Beth even added some sweet carvings into to wood for a personal touch. Just think of all of the cool options with typography stencils or chipped paint treatments…
Enjoy the party!
Here are the rules for our furniture get-together…
1.) Your post has to be about furniture. Please, please, please…just furniture. If you find your link has been deleted, it’s not because I’m mean, it’s because your post was not about furniture. You can share makeovers, awesome finds, favorite pieces, furniture arrangements, or even pieces on your wish list! Built-in furniture like kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities qualify as furniture.
2.) Post a permalink (the link to the post), not the link to your blog.
3.) This party will close Saturday at midnight PST and I will choose my favorite(s) and feature their piece(s) on next week’s FFF.
