Today I took a break from the freelance projects and photo shoots and went out Christmas shopping with my husband. It was a nice time, just shopping for our boys and eating lunch at Olive Garden, our favorite restaurant. We did do some work together, though. He read over the first chapter of my book and gave me a couple of notes (he’s quite the grammarian) and we did some brain storming about future video tutorials and series for my blog. I’m so blessed to have people around me who are so supportive.
Anyway, this will be the last regular FFF for the year. I will post FFF next week, but it will be a little different. I’ll keep it open for a week and it will be open to link up your favorite furniture projects, makeovers and finds from all of 2011. Now, I realize this is dangerous to do, but I’m trusting everyone that they’ll just link up a few of their favorites and not spam the party with every stick of furniture ever posted on their blog this year. Can we all agree to that? So it’s just the best of the best? OK, deal.
Now to this party…here are my favorites from last week…
I must admit a little envy bubbled up inside me when I read that Britt from Interestocity snatched up these chairs for $10 each at a thrift store. I tell you…I would take someone down for those chairs. It would be ugly. Children would cry. And I’m sure I would end up in jail. Yeah…it’s a good thing I wasn’t there. Way to go Britt. You’re a better woman than I am for buying those without incident. I can’t wait to see what you do with them.
Jilly of Jilly & Mia put together this awesome bookcase/divider to make an unused living/dining room combo into two separate functional rooms. (Her office is on the other side of the bookcase.) Clever, right? And her styling is flawless. It totally looks like a magazine shoot.
Deana of Alchemy Fine Living welcomed this 1970′s dresser into the new millenium with a fresh coat of paint (and the help of her grandfather.) I love the pop of color in the detail of the drawers and how it makes the piece look surprisingly classic and even modern.
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.
