Friday Five: Fabulous Furniture Features No. 4

Welcome to my fourth week in the series:

This is where I share my five favorites that I discovered this week. Have your drool napkin ready. 

In no particular order because they are each, too splendid. Please enjoy these fabulous works. 

Be Still My Heart

by Lisa at 


Every time I look at Lisa's pieces I stop and stare. Her work amazes me.  This particular one always has me mesmerized. Deep color. Cool and warm together. Personal touches. A to die for mirror shape. You can see more of these jaw dropping works at Create Inspire.  You will be glad I sent you. 


by Lauren at 

West Furniture Revival

Lauren consistently brings attention to detail. I've been dying to work on a drop leaf table and I landed on her beauty. Just the right amount of distressing on the legs to go with the top in a two tone that makes you pay attention.  Simply rustic, inviting and chic. You must see  more of Lauren's work at West Furniture Revival.  Enjoy, as I do. 


4 the love of wood

How about genius? I've seen a vanity turned bedside tables before but these have a class of their own.  Slight distress to display the right highlighted areas are done perfectly.  Adding height with legs... did I mention genius? My Canadian neighbor has an eye for creations. Stop in to see the rest of her amazing pieces at For the Love of Wood. You'll thank me. 

Orphans With MakeUp

Bombay console table makeover.  Country Chic Liquorice Paint with gold highlights using DecoArt Metallic Lustre (Gold Rush) and Rust-Oleum Specialty Metallic Gold spray for the hardware to match.

Mary is a  girl after my own heart. She has it all going on. The glam. The country chic. The statement. A mix of traditional with classy.   I've been working on a lot of black and two tone lately but when Mary's post came up I totally oohed and awed over it. I bet you are too.

My Made Over French Chair-Green Grain Sack Fabric

by Darrielle at 

D.D.'s Cottage and Design

Gorgeous! Oui? 
The fabric drew me in. Then the legs. And that backrest. Even Darrielle's name is beautiful. You must see the before at D.D.'s Cottage and Design along with her other creations.  
Aimez cette chaise!
