Furniture Feature Friday – Excuses & a Link Party


I didn’t have the time to pick favorites today because…


…I was moving all of my Milk Paint into my space at Lucketts.  I was so busy trying to get it all done that I didn’t get to have a teary moment until I looked at this picture.  God has really blessed this endeavor.  Wow.

…and I’m late because…

I was working on the new MMS Milk Paint website!  I still have a lot of work to do to get all of the information posted and all of the retailers listed, but it’s a great start!

…and I didn’t turn in my book report because my dog ate it.

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!

    I am envisioning this fabulous little boxes of MMS Milk Paint literally flying off those shelves! Congratulations on living your wildest dreams, you are an inspiration to me in so many ways. You caught me with your creative genius, but it’s been amazing to watch your hobby grow into an amazing business in new and exciting ventures.

  23. YAY!! I am super excited for you! Your space at Luckett’s is looking great, how exciting to see all of your hard work come together so beautifully!

    I’m so happy to be able to party here this week (however late I am … I guess it’s a theme)! I found a set of doors in a dumpster and made a pretty simple coffee table out them. Thank you for the opportunity to share it. :)

  24. Congrats on the Milk Paint line! Hoping to find a retailer in my area so I can try it. Thanks for hosting!

  25. the space looks great!!

  28. Kimberly Moody says:

    Your display looks amazing! Can’t wait to try out your paint. Oh, what color to choose first? Huge Congrats!!! Kimberly

  29. Looks incredible! I love the painted leg samples…I hate trying to figure out paint colors from a tiney swatch!
    Congratulations! Thanks for being a good teacher and inspiration.


  30. Katherine Smith says:

    Love the picture and the display!

    Everyone loves FFF, but have you ever thought about the stress it would relieve if you gave yourself a two month FFF hiatus. I would be happy for you to have a peaceful Thursday evening instead of a “Oh crap. I haven’t picked FFF for tomorrow” Just a thought. You are well loved so I think you would be hard pressed to find someone who would find fault with you picking up FFF in a few months.

  31. Thanks for hosting! I look forward to it all week!!

  32. Congrats and I can’t wait to try to paint!

    Funny story, I had to take a form to the doctor recently..and story was that the dog got a hold of it!

  33. laura says:

    I love your website and it brings tears to my eyes to see how the Lord is working through you! I am going through a difficult time in my life but you and a few others have been an inspiration to me to hang in there and put it all in God’s hands. Thank you for your inspirational blog and congrats on your new line!! :)

  36. Kristi says:

    Love, love, love your space! Looks like Lucketts is my kind of place, too bad I’m in Hendersonville, TN. May have to take a road trip to Virginia in the very near future! Can’t wait to try your paint. Best of luck to you!

  37. jean reistle says:
