Merci to all the lovely bloggers who linked up last week.Â It is so interesting how things go in trends.Â Some weeks you get all lovely chalk paint link ups, this week, I got so many completely out of the box, totally original, knocked my socks off projects.Â You guys are amazingly resourceful and endlessly creative.Â Â
Let’s check out what we have this week:
Do you know what this is?Â Me neither, but it is really cool looking!Â Â
Ruthie from Do It Myself got this at an auction for only $2!Â Wow, she did a TON of work on it to make it look this good, please go check out her blog to see how it came together.Â BTW, she gives some awesome advice on buying at auctions!
She scores a major home run again with this adorable hand lettered Farmer’s Market sign. I want one for my home!
Next up we have the extremely talented with wood, Kristi, from “For the Love of Wood”Â She is so talented, she is the queen of fixing and completely transforming a piece of furniture.Â I love this project, not only because the paint finish and fabric choice are adorable, but because she used a Bed Coverlet to upholster the chair!Â How clever, we don’t have to be limited to just upholstery fabric for furniture!Â The finished product is adorable.Â Â
And finally, we have this gorgeous work table from Maple and Magnolia.Â This is a great example of sometimes, “less is more”.Â She didn’t do much to this piece because it was so gorgeous to begin with.Â Just some hand sanding, rubbed it with Tung Oil and stained it with Minwax Dark Walnut Stain (which I have a can of in my garage and I am so anxious to use it on something….).Â I love that the table retains its “work” look and isn’t made into something too pristine.Â I told her that if she keeps putting gorgeous pieces of wood like this on her blog that pretty soon we are going to be showing up at her door step asking for tours of her workshop.Â Maybe people are already doing this?Â
Now it is your turn!
