by | Sep 27, 2013 | Furniture Feature Friday, Furniture Makeovers, Miscellaneus | 11 comments

Today was all about little tasks like shipping, bills, mail, e-mail, paperwork…all of that mundane stuff that I push aside, so I can paint and create.  It feels good to get that off of my plate, though!  Anyway, let’s get to the furniture…
I know that super distressed pieces can sometimes be the most controversial, love-it-or-hate-it-pieces, but they can also be the most striking.  I think this piece by Kathy of Petticoat Junktion is definitely striking…in my opinion.

I think this piece by Repurposed Gems is so pretty with the color, distressing and hand painted detail and, of course, the wood top.

And I also love the white on wood dresser by Fab Rehab Creations.  The wood grain is fabulous and I love the casual nature of the rope handles.  Great makeovers!

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 had to laugh when you said that people have a love hate relationship with the highly distressed look. Some love it and some hate it. When my mom (81 years old) was visiting me I showed her a piece that I was really proud of and asked her opinion. Trying to be nice she said, “It will be really pretty when it is finished!” I laughed and told her it was indeed finished. She just quietly shook her head and said, “Well if you like it that way.” So funny. Love my mom, she is very diplomatic.

    LOVE everything! In fact, all of these furniture pieces remind me of a nifty little furniture shop here in Utah called Four Chairs.
