I’ve been a real loaf the past couple of days, just as I was instructed. (For those who don’t know, I had my gallbladder removed, so my DIY days have been put on hold temporarily.) I watched the TV miniseries The Kennedy’s today and I’m about ready to watch the latest BBC version of my favorite Jane Austen novel, Sense & Sensibility. I am going a little stir crazy, but for now I have to be happy with my greatest accomplishments being a shower and laying comfortably on my side. Upholstery and refinishing will have to wait.
Since I’ve had a lot of time on my computer, I picked out four favorites this week …
Stephanie from Cre8tive Designs turned a regular headboard into this tufted beauty. She’s an amazing designer and has been such an encouragement to me over the past couple of years. It’s an honor to feature her work here. Oh, and that pillow? Yeah…I’m totally copying it.
Jennifer from Town & Country transformed this corner cabinet just by stenciling the glass on the doors. It’s an inexpensive and easy solution and it can be removed with a razor if she ever wants to change the look. Very clever!
Crystal from The Shabbiest Chick also used a stencil to give this dresser a personal touch. I love the repeated design and the dramatic contrast in paint colors. Not too shabby, Crystal!
Dear Emmeline came up with this clever solution for hard-to-replace hardware on this chunky 1970′s armoire. She used torn fabric strips tied in feminine bows. It wouldn’t work for every piece, but it is prefect for this one.
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!
