Good evening, all! Sorry I’m a bit behind schedule today, but I was having some technical difficulties. Anyway, you may have seen that I posed a question to my readers earlier this week – What do you want from my blog? The answers have been so helpful to me and confirmed a lot of my suspicions about what is working and what could be better. One of the themes that was brought up repeatedly was Furniture Feature Friday. The majority of the comments about it were telling me it was time to let it go.
This is one of the reasons why I’m glad I asked! I have been wanting to retire this link party for a long time, maybe even a couple of years, but I felt like it was a great way to feature furniture artists and send some traffic along to other bloggers and I thought my readers wanted it. It turns out that many of you skip this post entirely or just check out the features. But, there are other ways I can feature fellow bloggers and amazing pieces of furniture.
So, after 6 years of hosting this party, I have decided to retire FFF as it is now. It may pop up again, reinvented, but I’m still thinking through that.
Thanks to everyone who has participated over the years. When I first started out, we would have 20-30 links and I would visit each one, leaving comments. That was even before thumbnails available, so you had to click on each link to see the picture! Good times. We’ve come a long way and I’ve always found the links you’ve shared to be inspiring, so thank you.
And here we go, my final three favorites…
Isn’t this dresser shared by DD of DD’s Cottage & Design so striking?! I love the way the honey color of the mirror and drawer-fronts plays with the vivid green. This is a great way to give a dresser a new look, while still showing off some of the original wood detail.
This antique pine dresser by Lisa of Gracie Blue totally stole my heart! I adore the faded color of the pine paired with the aqua knobs and the playful gallery wall.
Lastly, I think this rocker that Jennifer of Ardent Hands painted for her 11 year old turned out so well. The before looked dated and stuffy, but now it has a fresh look, fitting for a soon-to-be teenager.
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!
