Making Broken Beautiful | No. 37


May 5, 2016 by Terry

1Happy Thursday and welcome to another Making Broken Beautiful!  I am so happy you are here!

This past weekend’s Market was so fun and I have a lot to share but I just haven’t mustered up the energy yet to sit down and write a post on it.  To be honest I feel like it came and went so fast it made my head spin!  I had such a great time, I wish it wasn’t over.

Thank you to all who took the time to pop by my booth to visit and shop from me!  Your support is overwhelming and YOU made me a success at this market!  THANK YOU!

Thank you as well to all of you who choose to link up and share some inspiration at this humble party each week!  YOU are the reason I continue to host and I enjoy seeing all the eye candy you bring each week!  I love bragging you up!

This week’s bragging will begin with Marie from the Interior Frugalista!  She shared her amazing creativity with this outdated otherwise overlooked MCM Record Cabinet Makeover.  I just love the color palette she chose and that stencil is so fun!   It’s MCM modernized!  Ha!  You really must go check out the before of this piece to be able to appreciate the amount of work that has gone into this update.

Life On Kaydeross Creek Shared this beautiful antique hutch makeover.  Colleen did an amazing job of bringing life and dignity back to this piece!  What a huge undertaking!  Well done!  I love the muted colors she chose for it and she gave it just the right amount of distressing to keep that primitive look.  Her styling for the photos is spot on as well!  I encourage you to op by her blog and check out the amazing transformation!


Beth over at Make Me Pretty Again shared this beauty in turquoise!  She used a technique I have never heard of called Ceruse!  You really must pop over to her site and read about this technique, it is so interesting and you achieve this beautiful effect!  I love how modern she made this piece feel and she gave it a touch of glam with that pretty hardware!  Well done Beth!


Lastly … Vanessa from Vanessa’s Modern Vintage Home is pure magic!  Who else can turn 80’s yuckies into Farmhouse Chic fabulous??  That’s exactly what she did with this old entertainment centre!  I used to have one of these outdated units and I threw it out … now I wish I still had it!  From bulky and heavy to light and airy … so pretty now!  Well done indeed!

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!

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
