Link Party #146 and the Fab Features


Happy  1st day of Spring!  I hope it feels like Spring wherever you are (if it is supposed to be Spring in your neck of the woods).  I just returned from a fun Southern California Getaway with my daughter and friends.  It was most definitely Spring there!

I would love for you to keep up with my upcycling, dumpster diving, furniture refurbishing antics!  Follow me on FACEBOOK, TWITTER and INSTAGRAM.  I am sharing more and more that you won’t want to miss.

If you missed my Under the Sea, Blue Sea Glass table I shared this week, you can catch that here.  This project was one of my favorites I have done.

Now enough about moi, let’s talk about you!

This dresser is gorgeous in this Blue-Green Color with a Black Glaze!  The Story of the makeover from Re-tiqued By Rae Bond is hilarious too.   Must go see for the details!

I think the 1st day of Spring has made me want to paint everything in gorgeous bright  blues and greens. I love this dresser with the beautiful finish from The Painted Drawer. She shares some valuable tips on how to use dark wax and glaze, so be sure to check out her post!

And if you haven’t had enough Green…..Here is an adorable project from SimpleJoys.  An easy to follow tutorial on how to make crepe paper flowers.  Add this project to my never ending list of craft projects I want to try!

Elisha from Pneumatic Addict goes over the top again with a furniture makeover. This time it is her Metal Topped Coffee Table. She shows you exactly how to make one yourself, or where you can go to have a piece of wood wrapped with metal.  Elisha has awesome tutorials and she is fearless!  A must follow!

This desk would have been gorgeous as is with the blue, but Leilouta Designs hand painted all that beautiful detail right onto the drawers and the desk! Wowza!

And finally for a Beachy Finale.  This adorable pallet topped dresser from Fire Finish.  What a great idea to change up the top of a dresser!

      It was the happiest place on earth for most. With the exception of a few overtired children and short on patience parents. I didn’t know a human being could yell so loud! I think the whole park heard this mother yell.
