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!
Last year, Stacy of Vintage Scrap Shop saw a free piece of furniture on the curb in her neighborhood. She says, "At first glance it looked like nothing more than a pile of potential firewood but thankfully I managed to take a 2nd look & saw what appeared to be an old potting bench." So what else could she do? She loaded it into her car and brought it home to give it a new life.
