Furniture Feature Friday – Favorites & a Link Party


Well, I finished chapter ten of my book!!!  I know there is still going to be a ton of rewriting and editing, but it’s so nice to have the bulk of it “out there.”  On the days I felt stuck, I reminded myself that there’s nothing to edit or improve if I don’t write, so I just kept plugging away and it all came together.  I’ve been really praying that God would give me the words to write that would be an encouragement to those who read it.  So, we’ll see how it goes.

Now I’m moving on to the photography, projects, painting, styling and photography work.  I have less than two weeks to get it all done…EEP…so I’m going to be a very busy girl the next couple of weeks.  I’m really looking forward to having a brush in hand again, though, and I love styling for photos, so it’s going to be a lot of fun.

So, without further delay and ramblings from me, here are my favorites from last week’s FFF…

Natalie from Natalme turned a rather dated and tired looking mail sorter into this very chic-looking display for her vintage camera collection.   Don’t you just want a mail sorter, now?  …And a vintage camera collection?  I do.

Connie from Salvage Savvy transformed a pretty sad-looking laminate bookcase into this stunning beauty.  I love her styling for it as well.  Very glam!

May from Achieving Clarity found a brilliant way to give a dresser a makeover without painting over gorgeous wood.  She taped off stripes, crosses and the drawers and painted the rest of the dresser in a black wash of paint.  When the tape was removed, it gives this gorgeous inlay affect and allows the beauty of the wood to still show through.   I love this idea!

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 Friday at midnight PST and I will choose my favorite(s) and feature their piece(s) on next week’s FFF.

Enjoy the party!
