Paint Parade #6 - a furniture link party and features

Hi and welcome for the weekly Paint Parade. Thanks for all the feedback this week on my buying vintage furniture posts (here and here). Of course you all know the benefits of pre-loved furniture but I thought it was worth writing my thoughts down in the hope to persuade some of the rest of the world!

So let's check out your pre-loved furniture projects!
There were some great projects linked up last week. I loved this classic dresser by Robin from RPKInteriors. This is exactly how I would have chosen to refinish the dresser also. Lovely work, Robin, it's clean, pretty and elegant.

Lynn from Fern Avenue Blog made a new vanity from an old chest of drawers. I just love this. I think they look way better than modern vanities - so much creativity and individuality. It turned out beautifully Lynn and I'm sure your family are loving your DIY efforts.

I actually did this for our house also. This is our bathroom below with the vanity that I made from an old French cabinet. I just love it's pretty lines and individuality, especially as it's visible from the front door if you leave the bathroom door open.

Marianne from Sew Paint It updated her son's room and did a beautiful job on finding a beautiful panelled bed for just $36 and a great job of painting them (classic white, my favourite). Enjoy your visitors, Marianne!

Now let's see what you have got. If you've got a facebook page or blog I'd love it if you could share this post and generate some more interest in this weekly link party.

Some logistics:
  1. Please only link up furniture projects or posts. Room reveals & built in furniture such as kitchens / bathrooms also count.
  2. I'd love you to follow my blog
  3. Please place my button from my sidebar or a link to my blog in your post.
  4. Have fun. Be inspired. Visit other linked projects and leave some love.

  1. WOW! I would love to find one of those sideboards one day... they would have to be my favourite pieces you work on, and I love the one Robin did to.

  2. Thank you so much for featuring me! I put this post on my facebook page! I am already following your fb page.

  3. Aw, Fiona...I feel like Sally Fields when she accepted an Oscar "You like me, you really like me!" It is such an honor to have been recognized by you. I am such a fan of yours..and deeply humbled by your acknowledgement of my work.
