Weekly Features

It's been difficult for us to choose just one feature each. Your vintage finds, vignettes and just plain creativity have been awesome!

Kathleen's Pick

Tammy from One More Time Events is embarking on a new adventure. She recently opened up a darling farmhouse decor shop! All I need to hear is the word "farmhouse" and I'm there! She shares her oak roll top secretary desk that's just to die for. She rejuvenated it with chalk paint, distressing, whitewashing and sealing. The result is phenomenal and a true farmhouse decor home run! Stop by and check it out for yourself, you're gonna love it!

Sharon's Pick

Jan at Rickety Pickets shared a maple night stand that she picked up a while ago at Restore. I grew up with a lot of maple furniture and I am so happy to see someone take a maple piece and give it such a lovely makeover. Jan changed the look of the piece by removing the louvered door and top rail. Then she painted it Annie Sloan Paris Gray, and in my book she couldn't have picked a better color. Check out Jan's Maple Night Stand Makeover and the vision she had for this piece.

Cecilia's Pick

Debby at Debby Goes Shabby shared a gorgeous summer mantel inspired by a recent Goodwill find featuring her favorite psalm. In her post Be Still every detail is just lovely, but she had me with the charming pairing of a timeworn watering can filled with lush hydrangeas - swoon! Be sure to stop by and check out the rest of her inspirational mantel.

Diana's Pick

 Well, I learned a new-to-me painting/finishing process from Kristine at The Painted Hive this week and no, I'm not going to give it away here. Let me just say that I have a small metal filing cabinet of my own that is going to receive the same treatment. You'll have to read A Filing Cabinet Hack yourself to learn about what Kristine did to achieve this amazing look. And those vintage-y file labels, yeah, I'll be "borrowing" that idea, too:)

Great features! My sister actually refinished a desk very similar to the one you chose of Tammy's - even the interior finish! It was sold in our booth spaces. Thanks for co-hosting Vintage Charm, Kathleen. I love this party. I don't have vintage items to share, but I will share my garden, many varieties of which were passalong plants from at least 2 generations ago. Have a great week.
