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!

Playing along with @prodigalpieces for #trashure this week. This large frame used to house a tacky old #vintage picture but with a little #milkpaint it has transformed into this large chalkboard. (Btw... it says EAT not FAT lol! ) what's not to love in this photo! 💕#thecuratorscollection Thoughts on this table??? Creating a beautiful rustic outdoor dining area... this entire table is salvaged wood. The base found separately from the top and joined together to form this unique outdoor living space. Along with the chandelier we added in some beautiful patio lights on the beams creating a dreamy setting for a lovely summer evening outside.  Playing along with @prodigalpieces today #trashure #thecuratorscollection #design #outdoorliving #patio #rustic #reclaimedwood FATTABULOUS time spent today with Angie of @absolutecustomdesigns helping with a FAT PAINT workshop. Just look at those delicious colours!!! I went home with #orangeapalooza and #navystateofmind 💕💕💕 currently looking for something to paint 🙄😂.... #painted #fatpaint #thecuratorscollection #mineralpaint #fun #cantdecide Thank you @absolutecustomdesigns Angie for including me in your workshop today! I really enjoyed helping out and meeting so many wonderful ladies! FAT PAINT really is my go to chalk paint!
