Sara, A.K.A "Mrs. Major Hoff" blogs at Major Hoff Takes a Wife. She tells us, " My friend just happened to find this fabulous chippy painted barn wood when she was out strolling through a pasture. Okay, so she is a veterinarian, and maybe is out in pastures more than the rest of us--but holy smokes! What a score!"
Over at Restoration Redoux, Shanna's friend gave her a few pieces of furniture that the didn't want anymore, including this dresser. "This was the first piece I've completed that didn’t have any hardware, so since the fronts were so plain to begin with, I decided to focus on the color," Shanna explains.
Over at her blog, Two Twenty-One, Chelsea has come up with a fun way to add a little pizzazz to old books. She covers them with fabric!
While Jenny from Paint & Pillows was grateful for all of the baby gear friends and family passed along to her when she announced her pregnancy, she does have one question for the world at large: "Why can’t baby stuff actually go with the decor of the home?" She decided that there was no reason she couldn't restyle some of the larger pieces of equipment--like this baby swing--so they would coordinate with the spaces where they'd be sitting out, ready to use.
