Making Broken Beautiful | No. 30


March 17, 2016 by Terry


Hello all!  I hope you are all having a great week!

I seriously can’t believe that we are already at Thursday!  Where is the time going?  I still have not recovered from the clocks springing ahead an hour but I won’t complain if it means more sunshine and warmer days!

Having said that … this is the first party of spring so please feel free to link up all your spring inspirations this week!  I’m really starting to feel the itch for gardening and bright colors how about you?

Let’s get straight to last week’s favorites shall we?

Fabiola from Fabi Fabu  shared this super stylish chair that almost wasn’t had she not stumbled across it!  Check out the story behind this chair!  Loving the fabric choice Fabiola!



Lynda from Gates of Crystal shared how to add character to a room using beams.  It turned out so pretty!  What REALLY caught my eye was that beautiful chaise lounge , the curtains, the artwork ….. hmmmmmm dreamy in a magazine photoshoot sort of way!  Is she lucky or what?  You must go check out the great photos of this entire room!


Cindy from DIY Beautify Shared this gorgeous makeover of her Duck Egg Blue cabinet!  I just love the crisp fresh feel of it and her styling is simple and farmhouse chic!  Love that hardware Cindy!  Well done on this gorgeous piece!


So I really have been trying to narrow my  weekly features down to just three but… I can’t help it … I could say something about everyone who linked up but then it would be an incredibly long post…..  any ways … Lastly…

Keri from Repurposing Junkie shared this great idea for adding detail to a piece and giving it character without having to paint the entire piece.  It turned out lovely and I like that she stained the wood and stenciled it rather than cover the entire piece.  Well done Keri!  You have a great mind for thinking out of the box.  Check out her website for other great out of the box ideas like this one!




So happy to have you join in every Thursday, it’s a pleasure to host your creativity and talents!  Thank you for the inspiration you bring here each week!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Thank you so much Larissa @prodigalpieces for tagging me in today's #trashure fun!  I don't know that this French chair was trash to begin with but it certainly did make its way into being a treasure indeed! This is my most recent makeover!💕#makeover #beautiful #statementpiece #upholstery #frenchchair There are 2 sides to everything and in this makeover too!  Velvety glam on the front and a modern statement in peacock feathers hugging the back!  Soooo pretty! 💕💕#thecuratorscollection #obsessed #sofine #soglam #feathers #velvet #statementpiece #beautiful #makeover #upholstery I am obsessed!! These (there are 2!) might just be the most luxurious chairs I have ever re upholstered! Gorgeous metallics mixed with luxurious fine velvets!  Wait till you see the backside of these chairs!  They will be delivered to their home tomorrow morning!  Can't wait!! #luxury #glamglow #makeover #upholstered #stunning #thecuratorscollection #soglam #sofine #obsessed Okay... here's a peek at the "during" of these two sweet chairs. They were  my client's Nana's chairs and it is my hope that Nana would be pleased with this makeover. #nanaschair #thecuratorscollection #makeover #upholstered #velvet #newlook #soglam #metallic So this is what has been keeping me busy these days... actually there are 2 of them! Without giving away what they look like now I thought I would share what the choices for fabric were first. My client chose the print for the backside and the velvet for the front side with exquisite soft pink velvet for the welting and the arms. I also gave the orange looking wood a glamorous look with some warm silver metallic paint. I hope to share with you soon! I don't want to share the reveal before the owner has had a chance to see them :). #thecuratorscollection #upholstered #makeover #velvet #soglam #mynanas Soooooo this is my current situation.... I'm on sewing machine number three in 2 days and a deadline nearing the end in 4 days! 😬 I SWEAR ITS NOT ME! Lol... hubby is trying to fix mine after bringing me home one from one of his co-worker's wife's ... how sweet is he? 💕huge shout out of gratitude to Mrs. Schafer for helping me in a pinch! 😘🌷#stressfulday #sewing #upholstery #deadlines #sweetpeople #thankyou #gratitude
