Furniture Feature Friday – Favorites & a Link Party

Marian ParsonsFurniture Feature Friday, Furniture Makeovers, Miscellaneus26 Comments

I have thoroughly enjoyed traveling, but it’s so nice to be home!  I was basically a loaf today.  Slept in, worked on my e-mail and I did have the chance to pick some FFF favorites from last week.  Here they are…

I thought this piece by Dionne of The Turquoise Iris is absolutely stunning.  The colors, the finish, the hardware, the styling…perfect.

This pantry in the background, featured on the blog whatever, used to be run-of-the-mill stock cabinetry, but some paint totally transformed it AND the entire space.  I am fond of paint…in case you hadn’t noticed.

 I love everything done by Susan of Maple and Magnolia and this pine bathroom cupboard is no exception.  The grey interior with the pine exterior with the rolled up towels with the glass jars filled with soap and natural sponges.  I love it all.

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.

  1. I'm so sorry, I just added my dice block! Oops. I can't delete it now. I left your tab open to look at the links, and I got side tracked and when I came back to the computer I thought I'd left it open to add my links, so I added one and realized it was for the wrong party!

    So so sorry!!!

  2. First of all, you crack me up Miss Mustard Seed. You're all about propping up others and then I go and see your super fabulous bird and twig cabinet over at The Inspired Room. See, THAT's what I love about blogland. Sharing the love ! Fist bump.

    OK, now that ottoman ? Hello? Swoon! Must.Have.Tutorial.Soon.
    Bring it girl.

    Now I'm off to enter my chalkboard table in your linky party.

    Oh, BTW, the laminate piece is holding up beautifully, not a scratch not a peel, nada. Even with kids doing their best to ding it up. Gotta love my Zinsser primer. LOVE. If the can wasn't so cold, I'd bring it to bed with me. Heh heh.

  3. I love your ottoman cover. I use blue painter's tape for everything from stenciling lines on my faux grain sack pillows to giving myself a french manicure. (who wants to use those expensive sticker kits when a pair of scissors and blue tape works even better?)

  4. Hi, I love your ottoman.. so gorgeous! Also I just uploaded a link for my 'pretty 6 – facelift' chairs, and checked the link… something very strange is going on there! The blog that turns up is not mine, but the details are all correct. So not sure what I can do abou that, sorry!

  5. Hi again! Can you possibly remove my first entry of 'pretty 6 – facelift' please? I have sorted the issue, and would love to re-do the link etc.

  6. I had already seen that post/tutorial you featured above about posting laminate. I started my furniture-painting escapades on laminate furniture (we call it veneer in NZ), because I didn't want to 'ruin' anything that was real wood. I have moved on since then, but if you'd like to visit my blog, there are several items that are veneer (laminate), such as 'The French Cream Hutch Dresser', 'The Sage Green Armoire', 'The Sage Green Hutch Dresser', and the 'French Cream Bedside Cabinets. The product I use is called Smooth Surface Sealer by a large NZ paint company called Resene. It is brilliant stuff, and water based so easy clean up (I don't like using oil-based products). I also use this product on my real wood pieces that have been previously varnished and this means I don't need to sand them back (the only sanding I love to do is the distressing!) While I mainly stick to real wood pieces now, sometimes I come across a laminate piece with lovely shapes and it really comes up great with paint anyway, and can be much cheaper to buy because no-one else wants it 🙂

    Have a great weekend

  7. Thanks so much for deleting the first attempt! Now I have it sorted, the 'Linky tools' thingy isn't working!! It's just not happening for me today… Thanks for visiting my blog, and leaving such lovely comments.. I do love my furniture rennos!
    (I'll try to upload it again later)

    ps. Do you have a nickname?

  8. Hi Marian, where I come, from when someone mixes olive oil and vinegar the expectation is a salad! Your furniture polish "recipe" gives new meaning to the term salad bowl.

    But seriously, will look forward to your grain-sack ottoman cover tute as that's a beauty and the initials make it wonderfully elegant. Jane F
