Marian ParsonsFurniture Feature Friday, Furniture Makeovers28 Comments

Alright, alright!!!  I confess!!  I ate wheat!!!!  Yes.  I did.  My husband wanted to go to Olive Garden tonight with my boys and dad and I raised the white flag before we even got there.   My mouth started watering as soon as the breadsticks hit the table and I caved.  I hold my head in my hands.  On a bright note, though, I had two breadsticks, but I had salad for dinner and some potatoes that my son didn’t eat.  So, it was a little failure and a little victory.  Let’s move on, shall we?  Here are my favorites from last week…


I love the washed finish on the drawers of this French provincial dresser by Fab Rehab Creations.  Finishes like these can be tricky and I think this turned out beautifully!


It’s easy for dark waxes and antique waxes to run away from you, so this tutorial by Allison of The Golden Sycamore is an awesome answer to fixing the “streaky problem”.

I love the play of natural wood stripes against the rich paint color on this highboy dresser by Beach Glass Blonde.  Sometimes I pass on these simple pieces, but this is such a great example of how they can become striking.

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!

  4. Miss Mustard Seed, I am concerned about post #127 on today’s furniture friday where the woman painted her baby’s crib with ASCP and clear waxed. I don’t know if the wax eventually dries enough so it wouldn’t be dangerous, but I am worried about the baby chewing on the rails, etc. and that the wax may be toxic. If the wax contains solvents, wouldn’t that be dangerous? I couldn’t find a more private way to ask you this question so commented here. Hope that’s ok.

  5. I am reading your book which showed up yesterday — really enjoying it! The weather has been really nasty today, so it was a good day to have a new good book.

  6. Hi, Thanks for hosting again this week. I’m still having trouble getting my pics to not be upside down?? but they are uploaded! Love the new cane sofa!!!!!

  7. Always love your parties; love your posts just as much, but it’s nice that you let us meet new people through your blog as well. Thank you!

  8. I was suggested this website by my cousin.
    I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my problem. You are wonderful! Thanks!
