My Favorites & the Winner!

Marian ParsonsFurniture Feature Friday, Furniture Makeovers22 Comments

I had such a wonderful time looking at all of your furniture makeovers. You are some talented women! And I hate some of you (ahem, Maryanne) for your great dumpster diving luck. It was so hard to pick my favorites. There were a lot of good ones, but these are the ones I picked out…

Amy from A Little Busy’s Stock Chandelier Redo
Is a chandelier a piece of furniture? Sure, why not. And who really cares with how great this one turned out. Absolutely lovely, Amy.
Make sure you check out Amy’s blog. Her kitchen redo is amazing!

Decor Made Simple’s Ratan Coffee Table
This coffee table looked like something off the set of the Golden Girls. I would not have thought it could look this timeless. Well done.

Get Your Martha On’s Distressed White Dresser
This is a pretty straight forward makeover, but she distressed this piece the perfect amount and I love arrangement on top. Beautiful job.

First of all, this piece is an amazing Craig’s List find. Second, I love the light blue color she painted the interior. It was a pretty piece of furniture to begin with, but it has been taken to a whole new level.

Judy from Gracious Southern Living’s Dresser Revamp
Another straight forward makeover, but I love how it turned out. The black distressed finish is perfect for this piece and even makes the old brass hardware looks good. Judy also shares a gorgeous buffet that is understandably one of her favorite pieces of furniture.

And the winner is…
Loulou from the Life of Loulou! Not only did this chair turn out totally fabulous, but you should see how it started and what this girl went through to make it look good. I imagine showering was involved after handling this chair. It turned out lovely and, in her own words, was totally worth it. Thanks for sharing this inspiring makeover with us. And you get the wood tray…either as is or custom painted. Just shoot me an e-mail and let me know!

Furniture Feature Friday will be a weekly event (with little breaks here and there), so keep working on your thrift store, Craig’s List, and curbside finds to share. I’m also going to broaden the guidelines to include your favorite piece(s) of furniture, favorite furniture finds, a piece that is on your wish list, and furniture arrangements/rearrangements. If it’s about furniture (or household furnishings like a chandelier), you can share it. I look forward to it!

  1. Hope you are feeling better! I did not understand the "rules for the party" and took you on a tour of my furniture, instead. OOps! I apologize(!) – but thanks for letting me participate! Great idea for a blog party.

  2. Wow, what awesome transformations! I went to each blog and read more about each piece that you featured, and each story was inspiring. I especially love the free curbside buffet…seriously, who gets that lucky to find just what they want for FREE! Haha! I'm happy for her, and I have more motivation to keep my eyes peeled for a good freebie deal myself! Thanks for sharing all the great makeovers—already looking forward to next week!


  3. OH OH OH OH OH OH! I won?? Little ol' me?? WHHHHOOOOOPPPPPEEEEEEE!!! (Picture me jumping up and down here with my cup of coffee.) I am honored… Everyone's things were fabulous. It's icing on top of the cake to win that fabulous tray, which I OF COURSE want you to paint. I totally forgot about the tray! Wanna know what's funny?? I looked ALL over yesterday for a wooden tray to redo for my coffee table!! YIPEE!!! Let me look through, and I'll decide what I want. YOU ROCK, MISS MUSTARD SEED!

  4. I was sorry to see that you weren't feeling well. That must have been hard for you missing out on getting your keys to your new store. Love your display of vignettes. You are one talented lady! Congrats to all the winners.


    P.S. I loved how you handle the blog award.

  5. Thank you darlin' for showcasing my dresser. The dresser still looks the same but it is now in my guest room which is done in black and white toile…things change around here all the time!

  7. Hi! Came over from Judy's blog & am so happy I did. What a beautiful blog, I'll definitely be back. Love all these projects I see & can't believe I haven't been by here before.
