Furniture Feature Friday – Favorites & a Link Party

 Well, I’m back on the road again today.  My niece has the lead roll in a play and that’s a good excuse to pay some family a short visit.  I’ll be back to preparing for Lucketts next week, but I get a bit of a break from the sanding, painting, pricing and shopping.  (Well, maybe I’ll try to squeeze in some shopping…)  I did have some time to browse the entries from last week, though,  and pick some favorites.  Here they are…


I love this primitive piece enhanced with a wood planked top added by Ally from Home by Ally.  I’m also digging her take on the paper wreath.  Very whimsical.


This Anthropologie inspired dresser by Redoux Interiors is a great example of how terrible a paint finish can look when it’s in process and then how amazing it can look when it’s all done.  (I hope everyone reads that entire sentence or it sounds like an insult…)  This piece took some talent, I tell you that!
And how cool is this piece, found by Wendy of Chapin Group Interiors?  It’s an antique jeweler’s desk and I think it’s fabulous!  Great find (the stool, too!)


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 so honored to be included here! Thank you so much for the feature!

  20. I really like how the “Chest Makeover in the Sun Room” really pulls the whole room together. Just another reason why real wood furniture is an investment that will last and last. Once your piece becomes a bit dated, you can strip, refinish, or redecorate to match your current design theme.
