Link Party #119 and a Paint Brush Giveaway!!!!!!

I am THRILLED to announce my newest sponsor, and a give away!!   7 Brushes, a $125 value.  1 Lucky Winner!!!! 

ChalkPro Products Brushes!

Mike and Kristen Luchsinger have been painting professionally for years, but could never find the perfect paint brush.  After much research, they decided to develop their own line of wax and paint brushes.  I have several of their brushes, and I can’t wait to order more.  These brushes are the first brushes I reach for.  When it comes to painting and waxing brushes, quality makes all the difference in your end result.  ChalkPro Products brushes are the best brushes I have ever tried.  ChalkPro Products are giving away an entire Brush Set.  You don’t want to miss this chance to get a set of these amazing brushes for FREE!  After you check out the features, check out the giveaway and check out ChalkPro Products website!

Onto Le Features!

I am in the market for new Roman Shades.  I am so happy Maison De Pax shared this fantastic tutorial! She used the existing mini blinds shade she had in her home.  Drop cloth, and craft paint.  They look like expensive custom made shades now! 

I am in love with this adorable little writing desk and stool from Vintage Prairie Style.  The details make the difference here.  She cut up lots of book pages and decoupaged them onto the drawer front, and check out the legs on the stool! 

I love Julia from 551 East Furniture Designs, she took a break after having a baby, but it looks like the break only increased her talents!  Check out her “Barb” piece, a tribute to Barb Blair from Knack Studios.  I think Julia has a follow up post to show you how to achieve this too! 
Back when I used to do more custom work, I would have loved a client to ask for something like this project from A to Z creations.  So FUN!  She took a boring Oak Wardrobe and turned it into a one of a kind creation. 
 This is a “Why Didn’t I Think Of That” moment!  From Confessions of a Serial DIYer, she shares how EASY it is to make your own piping and add it to chairs.  Love it!
I can’t get enough of French Provincial Style Furniture, and Pneumatic Addict did it again.  Not only can Elisha build furniture, but wow can she paint it too!  I love the combination Elisha used.  CeCe Caldwells Young Kansas Wheat and Simply White.  And the best part?  No sanding or priming.  It looks gorgeous! 

Now for the ChalkPro Products Brush Set Giveaway!!! 7 Brushes, a $125 value.  1 Lucky Winner!!!!  I can’t wait for someone to win these brushes!

    Thanks for a chance to win such a great prize. I’m so new at painting furniture/home decor items, but the one thing that I’ve realized is the brush makes all the difference.

    What a fantastic giveaway! I have a barn and a half FULL of projects – these brushes would certainly come in handy to help me get a few knocked out (and let my husband have a little more of his space back!) Thanks much for a chance at winning.

  41. used car Valdosta ga

    Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any suggestions?

  42. makeup brushes mac

    I am sure they’ll be benefited from this web site.
