Making Broken Beautiful | No. 36


April 28, 2016 by Terry

Welcome to Making Broken Beautiful!

Last week’s entries left me agonizing over features for this week’s party!

You are all so very inspiring and talented and I thank you sincerely for sharing your work here!  There is not one link that doesn’t deserve to be featured!

But … because I need to carve it down … here goes!

Mary from Orphans With Makeup put her talented touch on this stunning Diamond Point chest of drawers.  It is simple with slight distressing to bring out the design details of the piece itself!  Pure elegance!  I love the way she staged her photos too.  Make sure you pop by and see them all!


Terri from Designing Wilder shared this next piece that left me drooling!  Is this not the most pretty and unique coffee table?  She created this piece by upcycling an old table.  You must go check out how she did it.  It is absolutely gorgeous!


If you are looking to create painted patina that looks natural then you really MUST check out this tutorial from Wendi over at H2O Bungalow!  This is so easy and gives such a beautiful aged effect!  Her step by step instructions will help you get the look you want effortlessly!


Lastly …  I think I’m starting to love MCM!  Lately I have been seeing the best MCM makeovers and  I’m starting to view them differently!  Does this mean I’m growing in my design tastes? Hmmmmmm….

Vicki from Entri Ways shared this beautifully made over MCM triple dresser and I have to say I am smitten!  It is such a grand looking piece and the unique hardware she gave it really put the finishing touch it needed to complete the wow factor!


So I’m off to the All Things Pretty Market this weekend!  eeeeek!  I’m so excited! I can’t wait to share how it goes!

I had so much fun visiting all those who linked up last week!

I hope you enjoy this party as much as I do!  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!

Many times what others consider junk or garbage I consider useful! This table was constructed 100% out of other peoples garbage! Scrap wood and scrap balusters gave me one beautiful table! One of my favourite projects ever. This table went to live @cheekycouturesboutique I miss working in my garage on projects like this. #madefromscraps #thecuratorscollection #woodworking #imagination #designer #beautifulfurniture #farmhousetable
Meet the new man in my life ... Scooby. Talk about lazy coworkers! So hard to focus at work with ⬅️ this guy around!!! I just want to kiss him up all day! Can you believe he’s only 8 weeks old??? 😮 if he wasn’t going to grow up to be around 180 lbs he’d be mine. For now I’ll settle for him being my sweet coworker lol #thatguy #greatdane #baby #scooby #babysnuggles #babyfix #kissable #puppybreath #absolutepaintanddesign
Feels like a napping kinda day to me. Meet Hazel... aka “crazel “ because she’s a little crazy too lol. I’m in love with all her pink! Sooooo kissable! Wishing you all a restful long weekend friends 💕 #napping #restful #longweekend #familydayweekend #pink #kissable #furbaby #thecuratorscollection
So sad that my tulips are almost done 😔Even at the end of their life they are still so pretty! Happy Thursday friends! Stay warm! #tulips #happythursday #vignette #decor #flowerlovers #thecuratorscollection
When one of your best friends owns a Tulip Farm ... of course you never leave empty handed! Thank you sweet Trudie for my first taste of spring 💕🌷 #tulipfarm #sweetspring #flowerlove
