Making Broken Beautiful | No. 31


March 24, 2016 by Terry

After a busy yet productive week, I will admit that I’m happy to see Friday on the horizon!

It snowed here all day Monday leaving a few inches of snow on the ground and after last week’s sunny warm days, I’m finding it so hard to go back to winter!  … yuck!

So let’s bring back Spring with some inspiration from last week’s party!

Darrielle from D.D.’s Cottage and Design shared this rustic dresser.  I love the patina on this piece and she’s right … it does give off a “cow hide” feel.  I love it!


Cynthia from Clockwork Interiors shared her church pew.  Can you believe she has had this beauty in her garage for 2 years before giving it this beautiful new life?  Church pews are so hard to come by!  I have one similar (click Here to see)and if I ever came across one decently priced I snatch it up right away! She also made the gorgeous throw pillows on it and shares the how to’s for those as well!


Sherri from August Blues Slipcover Studio has mad skills when it comes to sewing slipcovers!  I mean, super mad sewing skills!  This slipcover is so well done that it actually looks like it’s upholstered instead of just slipcovered!  She has done so many unique and beautiful covers, she really does inspire!  You MUST go check out her blog!


Kristine from The Painted Hive shared how she gave this eBay dresser a new primitive look by switching out the hardware and giving it a new Linen dress!  I love how she styled it with the blue glass and the ferns!  Gorgeous styling!


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!

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
