Weekend Link Party #136 and Fabulous Features plus Tutorials!


Happy New Year!!  I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing (well at least some of the time?) holiday!   I say it every year, but I can’t believe it is January already!

I will be heading to Paris Flea Market in Livermore, CA Friday and Saturday.  We are open and selling off Christmas stuff + tons of new stuff for January, so drop by if you are in the SF Bay Area!

And….with the start of a New Year comes new resolutions, goals and plans.  I plan to share my master DIY list tomorrow, warning, it may be long.   Thank you to everyone who stopped by to share their beautiful talent at my party.  Everything featured here is pinned to my REDOUX FEATURES board on Pinterest! And, if you want a little insight on what is happening at Redoux, check my side bar and like me on Facebook!

On with les features!

It’s no secret I am a Francophile, on my sidebar I even mention I was supposed to be born a daring French Girl….I love all things french in this sweet post by So Much Better With Age. Jamie’s post is really highlighting her beautiful morning and evening tables in a gorgeous holiday French theme, but everything else is so cute!  I have found a new blog to check out, and hopefully you will too!

This project had my heart beating fast!  DeDe from Designed Decor found these chairs in the trash!!!  They were in pretty poor condition, with the caning in the seats pretty much non existent and falling out.   She not only restored the wood to a beautiful finish, but also cut and upholstered new seat pads.  Now that is a Junque Redoux!

I love the way my friend Patti from Old Things New dressed her already gorgeous Chandelier for the holidays.  You could do a variation on this for different times of the year too!  Patti is always coming up with clever projects.

And just to squeeze in one more holiday feature…….This is from my sweet friend Cassie at Primitive and Proper.  She is one talented gal.  Not only does she redoux furniture in so many different styles, but she is a very talented crafter. She crafted up these adorable birds nest ornaments from old jello molds!   She has a complete tutorial on her site, so you can Pin it and add it to your list of things to make for Christmas 2014!  At the rate I am going, I need to probably start that list in May!

Hope you are all inspired to get going on your Redoux list for 2014!  I can’t wait to see what you will share with me this week and this year to come.  Bonne année et bonne santé !

    That is such an awesome idea for cane chairs! I’ve made hundreds of garden chairs and jigsawed numerous seat bottoms but never thought to upholster these. Awesome job on all those curves.
