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!

    Thank you so much for featuring my DIY cotton stems! Thanks for a great party and I hope you have a great 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!

And it’s finished! I ended up having to make the cushion patchwork style. I Think it gives it a little added character though ;-) feels good to finally get one more item off my to do list! Happy Sunday all! #slipcovers #mystyle #shabbychic #pretty #design #homedecor #thecuratorscollection
Working on this sweet slipcover for my antique chair. All that is left is to fashion a cover for the cushion and it will be done! I have been wanting to cover this chair for a while now and it’s nice to finally be able to get to it. Sharing the final results soon. I hope you have an amazing day! #slipcover #sewing #makeover #interiordesign #pretty #thecuratorscollection
Studies say that people who put up their Christmas decorations earlier are happier… I decided to slowly bring things out starting with all my Christmas greenery. With our Thanksgiving over I can move on to my favourite time of year… Christmas! when do you start with decorating for Christmas? #christmasdecor #decorationideas #christmasgreens #decorideas #thecuratorscollection
Been in the mood for a little pillow making lately.... what cha think of this one? #pillows #shabbychic #plaid #homedecor #diyhomedecor #style #design #thecuratorscollection
When my aunt passed I promised that I’d always be there for my uncle. Every minute I spend with him makes my heart sing! 💕 it fills my heart with joy to see his eyes light up when I walk into the nursing home to see him. I am so blessed to be able to be back home and closer to him. He’s my #DAD #unconditionallove #dementiasucks #makemyheartsmile #loveyou #caringforyoualways
Today we celebrated 20 years! Thank you for your dedication and love. We really are forever... God IS good! We are so blessed! #truelove #happyanniversary #20yearsstrong #soulmate #loveus #bowvalleyranche
