Making Broken Beautiful |No.12


November 5, 2015 by Terry

Happy Thursday everyone!

What a great link up last week!  It was our largest one to date and I am so excited with how much this party is starting to catch on and grow!  Thank you to all who participate faithfully, I am starting to recognise some of you for your styles … I know who you are before I even click on your links!

The great ideas and makeovers were so good last week that I had a hard time choosing just a few to highlight!

I am smitten with this beautiful accent chair created by Q is for Quandie.  Gold done in the right way will always be in style and this most certainly was done in the right way!  Hop over to see the before of this now stunning chair!


Anne from Design Dreams By Anne made my jaw drop with how talented she is!  (did I mention she is a fellow Canadian? :)  )  She created this washstand from scratch and you wouldn’t believe what she used to create the harp!  I wouldn’t  have guessed it had she not told … and it’s brilliant!

Speaking of talent… Christy from Confessions of a Serial DIYer  turned this old fence into a vintage sign.  I love her style!  Her step by step tutorial makes it look so easy and the results are crazy good!


The metallic trend is so strong right now and I am definitely feeling the pull to do more projects with metallics.  Mary from Orphans With Make Up  has the perfect idea to incorporate metallics into your table setting this holiday season.  You really must check out this easy DIY she created using Matthew Mead’s Metallic Fusion Paints.  I can’t wait to get my hands on some!


I hope you all have had a great week and I can hardly wait to see what you’ve been up to!  Let’s get to linking shall we?

Please remember to link back to this party when joining in :0)

Feel free to link up as many of your previous or present projects as you would like!  The more inspiration the better!

    Amazing selections this week! Those chargers, oh my! I went looking for some and of course couldn’t find any at our thrift stores, but they are drool worthy. The washstand, completely impressive! The metallic chair outstanding. Fun party. Thanks for hosting Terry!


    • Terry says:

      Thank you Cheryl! I went scavenging for old silver plates too so I can make some but I didn’t find very many. Thanks for popping by to visit! I hope you have a great day!

The other day I let my daughter drive us home after being away. I was absolutely exhausted from life in general. This was the view from my passenger window... a beautiful reminder to slow down and listen to God’s whispers... He’s got this. #listentothewhispers #godsgotthis #bestillandknow #thatstillsmallvoice #heismystrength
So proud of these girls! Congratulations Haileybear and Brittany! #sweetsuccess #allgrownup #newchapter #bestfriends #graduation #thecuratorscollection #soproudofyou
And just like that it is done! What it beautiful day we had celebrating our baby girl! #graduation #beautifulday #notredamehighschool #growinguptoofast #loveher
cap and gown 🎓 ceremony done... now onto the good stuff!!! THE DRESS! 🙌🏻👏🏻🎓 .... can’t wait to see my beautiful girl in her dress! 💝 #graduation #babygirl #allgrownup #soproud #beautiful #loveher
... and she doesn’t think she’s pretty! ??? So proud of this girl! Baby number two is graduating from high school this coming Saturday… Where has the time gone? She has definitely been our “wild card” from the very beginning! So full of energy and always ready to help wherever it is needed. She is ambitious and fun and has an amazing heart! We know she will be successful in anything she does. What a gift she has been to our family! #proud #beautiful #strong #loveofmylife #blessed #loved #congratulations #graduation #bestfriendsforever #modelmaterial
Happy Monday friends! I know I haven’t posted anything for quite some time but as I sit here this evening I feel it’s time to share a bit more of what has been happening for the last few months. Most of you don’t know this but for the last 11 months I have been slowly learning the technical side of my family’s business. For the past 43 years my parents have invested their blood sweat and tears making our family business such a huge success. (@globefootwearltd ) I am privileged and honoured to be able to carry that on for them. 11 months ago I took a leap of faith and left everything I was comfortable with to come and carry on our family heritage. Our children were brave enough to leave their friends and their school in order to support their mom in keeping the family heritage alive. Today I am proud to say that while I still have much to learn, I am happy that we took that leap. It truly is an amazing journey and a hard (at times challenging) one at that… But with God’s grace and strength we will carry through for continued success! God is good! I’m still loving furniture makeovers and when I can, I still enjoy DIY and sharing what I make… But for now… I have to take a step back from that part of my life and focus on what is before me. I hope you will stay, and follow along in my journey. We have a new home where we are and are wanting to put our style mark on it… I know there are a few stencilling projects in our future ;-) I will share more with you soon. You can follow along on my business journey too at @globefootwearltd ❤️😊 #newlife #newfriends #newbusiness #newadventures #shoestore #familybusiness #heritage #myheritage #godisgood #strengh #godsgrace #globefootwearltd
