Making Broken Beautiful | No.11


October 29, 2015 by Terry

What a crazy week we have had around our home this week!  Seems like everyone is going in different directions with so much on the go.  I can’t believe it is Thursday ALREADY.

With the days getting shorter the closer we get to winter, I find myself feeling the Fall ‘BLAHS’!  I wish it could be sunny here all year … soon it will be dark at 5:00pm :0(

Well … now that I have brought you down with me (lol) lets see if we can cheer ourselves back up with some features from last week’s party!

D.D.’s Cottage and design hit the jackpot when she snatched up this little dresser off of Craig’s List.  She also created a stunning new color for it by mixing left overs of MMS milk paint in Ironstone, Luckette’s Green and  Flow Blue!  Love this in it’s entirety …. you should see the before!

DD's cottage

Meredith from The Palette Muse shared her makeover of a sweet barrel back chair using Dropcloth and chalk paint.  It is so fresh and sweet and I love the grainsack stripe!  Hop over to see how she painted on fabric!


Ashley from Vintage Refined hit the head on the nail with this beautiful simple white dresser.  I love that she left the top in a darker color.  It truly is a timeless classic!


Lastly I couldn’t help but share these Duncan Phyfe dining room chairs by Studio Paint.  The fabric is truly what caught my eye!  They are absolutely stunning now!


This week I would like to welcome you to link up anything home decor related be it a makeover or just a favorite piece you’d like to share.  Thank you for sharing your inspiring pieces!

Let’s get straight to inspiring shall we?  Feel free to link up as many of your previous or present projects as you would like!  The more inspiration the better!

    Hi Terry – Please delete my link-up #1. Just realized it was a “Furniture Only” party.

    I love that you picked Darrielle’s dresser as a favorite, that color is just gorgeous! And I agree, the fabric makes those Duncan Phyfe chairs a stand out.

Playing along with @prodigalpieces for #trashure this week. This large frame used to house a tacky old #vintage picture but with a little #milkpaint it has transformed into this large chalkboard. (Btw... it says EAT not FAT lol! ) what's not to love in this photo! 💕#thecuratorscollection Thoughts on this table??? Creating a beautiful rustic outdoor dining area... this entire table is salvaged wood. The base found separately from the top and joined together to form this unique outdoor living space. Along with the chandelier we added in some beautiful patio lights on the beams creating a dreamy setting for a lovely summer evening outside.  Playing along with @prodigalpieces today #trashure #thecuratorscollection #design #outdoorliving #patio #rustic #reclaimedwood FATTABULOUS time spent today with Angie of @absolutecustomdesigns helping with a FAT PAINT workshop. Just look at those delicious colours!!! I went home with #orangeapalooza and #navystateofmind 💕💕💕 currently looking for something to paint 🙄😂.... #painted #fatpaint #thecuratorscollection #mineralpaint #fun #cantdecide Thank you @absolutecustomdesigns Angie for including me in your workshop today!
