Friday Feature Party #52 and Mes Préférés


Happy Weekend – Almost – It’s that time of the week again!  Time to see what amazing links we had last week and link up your amazing projects for this week!

If you were featured, please feel free to go to my Buttons page and grab your “Celebre” button!

With Paris Flea behind me for a few weeks, I can step back and refill my creativity bucket by all the amazing projects you share with me.  Let’s take a look at some of the things that caught my eye this week:

This piece from “One Girl in Pink” just took my breath away.  She did such a beautiful job layering paint and glaze, the finished project looks like something you would see in a true French Antique store, with a high price tag to match!

I love Craigslist.  I think most of us in the “Redoux” business do.  “Confessions of a Craigslist Junkie” transformed this ugly duckling with good bones into a treasure worth displaying in even the most elegant of homes.

Do you love galvanized Metal buckets and containers?  I do!  I found some recently at a garage sale.  Green Willow Pond came up with a way to make your own!  She even shares a great tutorial on how to get this look.

You know how I love color, and this fun piece from The Turquoise Iris does not disappoint!  Love the Teal and Green.  So cheery!

Have you seen this chair?  Thanks to Little House in Big D, it is a popular feature!  I can’t believe the amazing work she put into this.  I love the fabric choices, the details.  So fun.

I have such a hard time throwing furniture away, I always try to squeeze one more use and life out of it.  Apparently Kim at Too Much Time and her mom do too!  She used this dresser that was literally falling apart to make an outdoor garden.  I adore furniture in the garden, and this is just perfect:

How many of us save your tin cans.  Raise your hands, there are a lot of us out there.  Something about these cans are so quaint after the label is peeled off, and I can’t get enough of the different ideas I see for using them.  This next project though has turned the used tin can on it’s head, or should I say, sent it down a rope.  What a truly clever, and cheap way to keep an herb garden.  From Lillys and Lollipops

Thank you so much to everyone who linked up.  I love seeing all the amazing talent you have each week.

Now it is your turn!!!

    Meegan@What Meegan Makes


    I really like this. Shabby Chic is certainly a type of Feng Shui, giving a relaxed, soft and feminine feel.
    A very loving way of decorating making people want to come in and relax, this is why it can also be known
    as the cottage feel.
