Making Broken Beautiful | No. 32


March 31, 2016 by Terry

Welcome back to another week of Making Broken Beautiful!  I’m so happy you could come!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend.  We spent last weekend in Lethbridge and enjoyed a fun time there! It was nice to step away from things for a bit and just enjoy some family :)

Last week was filled with fabulous inspiration so here are a few highlights if you missed it!

Shayla from Shay Renovation shared how she turned this Goodwill caned back chair into this pretty padded back accent chair.  She gave it a whole new look after completely stripping it down to the bare bones!  Well done!  Great idea for those chairs with missing or damaged cane!


CoCo from The Crowned Goat transformed this ordinary workbench into this extraordinary outdoor serving station!  Complete with lighting!  This is awesome!  You should go check out all the different options for styling it too!  I’ve only chosen one to show you … go check it out!


Shanna from Restoration Redoux shared some chocolate with us … white chocolate that is. Who doesn’t love chocolate … especially in the form of a mid century modern desk!  I love the pop of pink inside … and that pink bust … perfect styling!  Go check out the rest of her gorgeous photos!


Like me, Sara from Twelve On Main also has champagne tastes but only has a beer budget to work with.  Because of this she has come up with a brilliant solution to creating your own beautiful Cotton Stems!  THANK YOU Sara!!!  These turned out ahhhhhmaaazzzing! For the full tutorial on how you can make your own for literally pennies check out her blog!


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!

  6. Cute cute cute! But I almost like the chair better before…


    • Terry says:

      AWE! Thank you! If I could have found the same material again I would have used it for sure. It is so delicate with the little roses and I loved the lattice design. I’m a bit of a lazy writer …I hate it …so I took a shortcut and didn’t mention that the original wood finish had drippy stain and runs on the legs and the sided of the chair which is why I chose to paint it. But you’re right it was quite sweet the way it was. I hope you have a great week!


  7. Thanks so much for the party Terry and I hope you enjoy the gorgeous weather they are predicting for us this 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
