Good evening, everyone! My mom, Kriste, and I worked super hard today to try to get the rest of my pieces painted for Lucketts. We got a ton done and, at three weeks out, I’m further along than I’ve ever been. I still have a lot of upholstery, slipcovers, sewing, etc. to do and I would like to find more smalls/accessories, but I feel like we’re nearing the finish line. Tomorrow, the three of us are going to do a bit of shopping to hopefully find a good haul of well-priced smalls. Wish us luck!
Tonight, though, it’s all about your furniture finds and makeovers. Here are my favorites from last week…
I love this primitive cupboard shared by Larissa of Prodigal Pieces. Really, the entire room is amazing, down to the crystal chandelier, plank and beam ceiling and all of the finishing touches.
As I’m about to make some slipcovers of my own, I was so inspired by these pretty, flirty pleated skirts with ballet ties, made by Shelley of Slipcovers by Shelley. And she worked with stripes, no less. Impressive!
Lastly, Joan of Scavenger Chic was so resourceful when she made this hinged storage crate, complete with a “blue crab” logo, out of an old fruit crate. What caught my eye about the crates she used is that they are from a farm right down the road from my house! Her tutorial on the transformation is really good, so it’s worth a click.
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!
