Handan at The Navage Patch, the blog she shares with her husband, took an ornate mirror and made it over in a unique way. They took a so-so mirror that was gold and silver and brought out the best in it by painting it white and highlighting the ornate parts with Rub’n Buff.  The finishing touch, adding an Irish blessing using frosted glass spray make this Ornate Mirror Makeover simply splendid.

I love it when someone finds a new purpose for something and it manages to fit perfectly with the season. Laura from Not Just A Trophy Wife has done just that with her Upcycled Chipped Dishes. With spring right around the corner, she shares her way of displaying some much-needed greenery. But not in a traditional pot, mind you. Rather, she planted it inside an old (and much-loved) chipped bowl. It’s a great idea to keep in mind the next time a piece of pottery manages to accidentally hit the floor. Not that that’s ever happened to me….

If you are still getting snow this week, I’ve got some sunny spring inspiration just for you! Tammy, blogger at Patina and Paint created an absolutely gorgeous Spring Floral Arrangement using a cabbage and the DIY favorite–a mason jar. Her project was inspired by Southern Living’s Facebook video but Tammy chose her own favorite flowers for her version and the results are just beautiful! She shares the tutorial and supply list so we can make our own too. Which flowers would you choose?

We had a new-to-us blogger link up last week: Leigh from A Porch with a View. In DIY Chalkboard, she tells us about finding a beautiful, curvy flea market frame and turning it into a fabulous and functional chalkboard. She began blogging last fall and is doing a bang up job. Why not pop over and give her some love–leave a comment, follow her on social media, etc? Be sure to check out JUNKING on her navigation bar–

Rheta from Vintage Eve’s found a pretty little cup and saucer for her shop. The Lady Louise pattern is from the 1940s and made by Syracuse China. Rheta was curious about who they were so she did a bit of research making her a girl after my heart. You know how I love to research my vintage finds. So if you are curious about the company that made the pretty little cup and saucer too, check out AKA Syracuse China.

Last week Lora from Create & Ponder shared with us some truly vintage finds! (I love stories like this one, by the way.) She was lucky enough to receive as a gift a milk crate filled with old bottles that were dug up from the Minneapolis dump a number of years ago. I was intrigued, to say the least when I heard that! Turns out at least three of those bottles are indeed the kind of vintage we all would love to find! Be sure to stop by Antique Bottles to find out the unique history behind each of them.

Tuula blogger at Thrifty Rebel Vintage has been busy as a bee giving her kitchen a head-to-toe thrifty vintage makeover. I have followed and admired her progress, time and time again. This week she proved the importance of DIY perseverance when she ended up hating the paint color resulting from the first attempt on her Kitchen China Cabinet Makeover. Ever resourceful, Tuula mixed her own paint, adding white to the lovely aqua color she used on her kitchen cabinets producing the gorgeous shade here. She then added red polka dot paper to the back of the cabinet for a darling retro-chic finish. Be sure to drop by to see all of the details, including the first color fail and what she used to paper her cabinet!

If there’s one place I regret never having had the chance to visit when we lived in England, it’s a French flea market (or brocante). In her post, My Paris Market Photo Shoot, Amy, who blogs at Brocante Treasures, gives us a real taste of this wonderful French experience. Oh, and my goodness, you should see the treasures she brought home with her–

Charged with the task of refreshing her parent’s laundry room Kristine from The Painted Hive needed a solution to hide their washing machine.  Their laundry room adjoins the main hallway in their house and doesn’t have a dedicated door so it is entirely in the open.  Her solution was to DIY a mini barn door cover-up for the washing machine.  She shares her wonderful tutorial with us so we can install our own mini barn doors in place of ordinary doors wherever space permits.  Check it out at DIY Mini Barn Doors…A Complete Tutorial.

Guest Feature: Sherry from Savvy Apron won my heart over last week with her DIY Chandelier Floor Lamp. I bought a thrift store chandelier many months ago, and have been looking for just the right upcycle solution. I think I’ve found it, and you will, too. It’s a simple tutorial with a stunning outcome. Thanks, Sherry!

In her weekly Creative Friday post, Cecilia, blogger at The B Farm shared her latest project –an upcycled box she created to store her tea. It’s a beauty and you’ll enjoy seeing how she transformed the container but just wait until you see the photos from her trip to England that inspired the project. In Time for Tea, Cecilia takes us on a tour from Bath to London to Stonehenge, to the picturesque village where she captured this lovely cottage. Her photos are simply charming, hop over to see the beauty for yourself!

Last week, Penny from Penny’s Vintage Home Repurposed a Wicker Settee that had seen better days in such a delightfully creative way. I love outside-the-box thinking and this is such a great example of that. Using plants and decorative items purchased at garage sales, she frugally put together a stunning display.

Debra at Shoppe No. 5 recently found a table in the antique mall where she has a booth that desperately needed a makeover.  After a debate with herself, she took it home and gave it an incredible makeover with milk paint and a stencil.  Pay Debra a visit to see all the work that went into A Vintage Table That Needs a Makeover.   I think you will agree that she did an amazing job.

Anika from Anika’s DIY Life shares a fabulous DIY decorating secret that’s one of my personal favorites: contact paper! Check out her examples and tips in How to Decorate with Contact Paper. We recently got a new stainless steel fridge and I’ve been itching to change out our black dishwasher to match. Looks like it will be contact paper to the rescue! (Psst, it’s for countertops, windows, and even floors, too!)

Liz, blogger at Simple Decorating Tips begins her post How I Turned This $10 Piece of Junk into a Masterpiece, with a question.  She asks whether her readers would have purchased the broken clock for $10.  As much as I love a good up cycling challenge, I would have probably answered in the negative and it would have been my loss.  You absolutely must see the before photos to fully appreciate Liz’s creative vision.  Well done, Liz–it is a masterpiece!

Debby, the mastermind behind Debby Goes Shabby, created a magazine cover shot in her post Enchanted Moments, in response to a blogger challenge, and my oh my, what a stunning job she did. Tucking several dozen red roses inside the drawer of her vintage, shabby chic dresser resulted in a truly romantic Valentine scene.

Carrie at Thirty-Eighth Street devotes her blog to inspiring others to see the full potential in recycling furniture. In my opinion her submission this week is outstanding. She took a stately Thomasville dress that had seen better days and converted it into a media console. Then she applied a Balayage painting technique where there is a gradual transition between colors or lack of color. Carrie gives us a detailed painting tutorial for her stunning Balayage Inspired Painted Media Console.

 Pat from Bringing French Country Home shares my love of old books. In A Field of Dreams, she shares how she stumbled upon a vintage collection of poems entitled “Brilliants” by Eugene Field, best known for his children’s poem, “Wynken, Blyken and Nod” written in 1889. He lived in her neighborhood at one time and a branch of her local library is named after him. If you love old books you’ll find this volume swoon-worthy. I was so intrigued by the historical background she provided that I did a bit of research on my own and found the entire contents of the collection online. If anyone is interested they can read the entire contents of the “Brilliants” collection in a PDF provided by The University of Illinois Urbana-Champagne. It’s a unique slice of history for sure. Thanks, Pat, for sharing the lovely story.

Jann at Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson shared her darling basement Valentine kitchen and I am completely smitten! From polka dots and checks to charming tins and dishes, it’s overflowing with red and white vintage treasures and sprinkled with whimsy. Delightful, Jann!

I find my appreciation for mid-century modern furniture and design growing stronger every day, which explains my love for Interior Frugalista blogger, Marie’s Mid-Century Modern Bookcase Turned Funky Bar from last week’s party. She took advantage of the bookcase’s clean, simple lines and added a brave, bold chevron backboard that’s out of this world.

A while back Brenda at Unique Junktique obtained a lovely vintage bedroom suite of spool turned Wheeler Reproductions by Jamison.  She has plans to do each piece in complementary colors since she prefers the collected look and plans to keep this set for herself.  This beautiful dresser was the first piece she transformed.  She used a tailored blend of chippy milk paint and it turned out beautifully.  She detailed the process to achieve her gorgeous chippy look.  I urge you to go see Brenda’s Spool Turned Dresser-A Tailored Blend of Chippy Milk Paint for yourself.

Florence over at Vintage Southern Picks is a DIY-er after my heart. Wanting to make something that would appeal to her girly frou-frou side while not alienating her husband (been there, done that) she came up with a great compromise. Her Doily Lampshade Makeover is an ingenious way to embellish a lampshade with delicate vintage textiles without overdoing the frou-frou. Stop by to find out her secret!

I always enjoy reading the story behind the project, especially when there is fairy tale inspiration involved.  Sam from Raggedy Bits participated in a movie inspired challenge and shared a dreamy DIY project that I would display not only as Valentine decor but year round.  She gives us a detailed tutorial to create our own DIY Farmhouse Paper Rose Fairy Tale Frame and shares sweet memories of watching The Princess Bride {the movie that inspired the featured quote,} with her younger sister.  All the marking of a fairy tale charm, in my book!

Gina at Victorian Wanna Be astounded me this week with some of her gorgeous vintage and antiques. Here you see her beautiful Eastlake bedroom set, showcasing an outstanding crazy quilt. And you don’t want to miss her button collection or the quilt she “stole” for just $17.00–all in her post, Sew Crazy in Love.

January Feature of the Month

We would be hard-pressed to find many bloggers who imagine and create more truly unique projects than Sarah at Sadie Seasongoods. Week after week she posts her thrifted (often vintage) finds and then shares with us the details of how she makes them over into spectacular, upcycled home decor and sometimes–like today–fashionable accessories. She wowed us with her beautiful So Charming: Vintage Rhinestone Button Bracelet, a delightfully simple, but stylish, craft.

Sarah at Sadie Seasongoods always comes up with unique ideas for repurposing her vintage finds. This rug beater all dressed up for Valentine’s Day is no exception. It is absolutely adorable and it makes me want to run out looking for a rug beater to make one myself. Who would have thought a rug beater could be so appealing? Hop over to see Sarah’s Heart Beater: Vintage Valentines Decor.

Dianne over at Deanie’s Stash really knows how to repurpose things and bring new life to old furniture. She and her husband took pity on an old, worn out and broken dresser they found at an estate sale and used it to create a fabulous vintage sewing room organizer. Made out of old drawer parts, it looks as if it’s always been there holding her vintage sewing and crafting goodies. I especially love the vintage wooden cheese boxes, but all her other storage containers are ingenious as well. I love it, Dianne! (Now I’ll be on the lookout for some of those vintage wooden cheese boxes for myself!)

If you could use a virtual getaway on this cold winter day, do yourself a favor and visit Impressions of Cuba. Julie, blogger at Renaissance Mermaid takes us on a picturesque journey of her family’s recent vacation to her son-in-law’s homeland. Her post is filled with stunning photos of historic architecture, beautiful beaches, interesting trivia and candid family photos, reminiscent of a simpler time. Sigh……

In  Around the Studio, Janice, who blogs at Curtains in My Tree, gives us a look at some of her creative crafts and a few of the beautiful objects in her studio that inspire her. I fell in love with this darling, embellished cabinet card that just oozes with vintage charm(!).

Lora at Lora B Create and Ponder took some vintage odds and ends and created a charming Valentine vignette.  Don’t you love when someone creates something amazing from ordinary bits and pieces?  Pay Lora a visit to see her creativity flow in From White Elephant to Valentine.

Tammy from One More Time Events is a farmhouse style guru. She shares beautiful DIY farmhouse decor elements, each one more ingenious than the next. This time she uses curtain rods as wall accent pieces in her dining room, all to spectacular effect. Check out her Dining Room Wall Decor with Decorative Curtain Rods to get the full reveal.

Cecilia’s Pick

Susan from Ash Tree Cottage is a girl after my own heart. She wanted to brighten the dreary January days by adding some yellow to her studio and found the perfect Sunny Yellow Cottage Fabric. Although she’d first planned to sew pillows, Susan decided instead to use it as shelf backing in her mini hutch. It only takes a glance at the charming hutch and complementary fabric to see she made the right choice!  Pay Susan a visit to check out where she found her lovely fabric and its original intended use.

If you are a farmhouse fan and have not yet discovered Knick of Time, where Angie Chavez blogs, then you need to run, not walk, to her beautiful site. It’s filled with all kinds of farmhouse decorating and DIYs, like this post: Farmhouse White Kitchen Shelves, which features simple, perfectly styled shelving that aptly reflects her creative talent.

Amy at A Day of Small Things has the most delightful vintage style.  In Let It Snow she shares several charming winter vignettes.  I love them all and I think you will too.  Hop on over to check out Amy’s home decked out for the snowy winter months to come.

Being a good photographer is a skill I have always aspired to, without much success. That’s why I was absolutely smitten when I saw how Joan, of Joan Marie Co., does it. Her amazing self-taught photography and styling skills are quite evident in her Creating a Still Life Farmhouse Kitchen project. The arrangement is spot-on and it’s perfect right down to the little details. Seeing her beautiful photography and reading about her process is a real treat I know you’ll enjoy.

Cecilia’s Pick

AnnMarie at Musings of a Vintage Junkie shared A New Adventure for a New Year and her enthusiasm is contagious. She has spread her vintage-loving wings and opened a new booth at a charming warehouse mall called Rutiques. AnnMarie gives us the grand tour of a place we would all love to shop as well as the scoop on her beautifully styled half room booth that she hopes to expand in the near future. Pay AnnMarie a visit for more vintage eye candy! 

Don’t you love it when experts share the tricks and tools of their trade? Carrie at 38th Street does just that in her post, Natural Furniture Distressing Techniques. Her end result is a beautifully painted and distressed nightstand, but the end result for me is four easy steps that will allow me to beautifully paint furniture in the future. Thanks, Carrie!

Rheta at Vintage Eve’s always writes the most informative posts about the vintage goods that she finds to stock her shop.  In Napco Time she tells the story of the company from founding until dissolution. She shared an adorable little cat that she found for her shop. Rheta concludes and rightly so that Napco gave us some of our favorite collectibles.

Linda from At the Createarie really knows how to repurpose everyday objects. Can you guess what this beautiful hand-decorated box USED to be? You’ll never guess! Stop over and read Distress….and Chip! to find out!

Cecilia’s Pick

If you follow Debbie, blogger at A Debbie Dabble Christmas, you know festive Christmas decorating in every nook and cranny is her specialty. I can imagine she was like a child in a candy store as she toured Christmas at Country Folk. It really was beautifully decorated–even the outside, which was my personal favorite. Pay Debbie a visit to see the rest of the charming tour!

I’ve been a huge fan of Sarah, the brains behind the blog, Sadie Seasongoods, for quite some time now. She pumps out consistently original, wildly creative crafts and DIYs week after week. This week’s project, a Vintage Rhinestone Button Bracelet, is certainly no exception. Fun and flirty, it’s something I would absolutely pay good money for. Love it to death.
