Paint Parade #2 - a furniture link party and features

Lilyfield Life Paint Parade

What a week - loads of rain and grey skies and a new Prime Minister Elect for Australia. What a backflip that was. It's interesting times.

Anyway thank you everyone for linking up your fabulous painted furniture last week.  I am so happy to be hosting this link up party as I found some wonderful new blogs to follow. I am so inspired by your makeovers. I had such a hard time picking only a few to feature. My favourite piece was Jennifer's from Rustique Restoration. Chests of drawers like these make my heart beat a little faster and I love how she has painted it in these pretty, muted colours.

How cool is this and what a great way to display paint colours. Karen from Redoux Interiors and the CeCe Caldwell team made this. Australia would also look great like this! Can someone do this??

Beachcomber found this lovely little cabinet on the side of the road. I love a good roadside find, people throw away the most amazing things; you should see the before photo. It's barely recognisable. Hooray for aqua paint! Such a great pop of coastal beach-combing colour.

You have to check out Mimi's blog, not only for her beautiful painted furniture but how she juggles her baby on her hip while she paints. Isn't this desk just beautiful, and I just love those white floorboard. 

and the link most clicked through was this sweet little piece painted by Kim at Kim's Craft Cottage. I'm always a fan of painted pieces with the top left wooden. Such a great look.

So what do you have this week?
Looking forward to seeing it all!

Some logistics:
  1. Please only link up furniture projects. Room reveals & built in furniture such as kitchens / bathrooms also count.
