Furniture Feature Friday

By Miss Mustard Seed on Apr 12, 2012

I had a wonderful day today.  I was finally able to move back into my little space on the first floor of The Old Lucketts Store.  I let other people do the heavy lifting, but I got to do all of the fluffing and arranging and playing that I’ve missed so much over the last few months.  I also got to meet a couple of readers who were there shopping as well.  It’s always nice to put a face with some of the people who read my blog.  They’re all lovely, of course (…but I’m partial.)

I shared some pictures of my space on my FaceBook Page today, if you want to check it out.  I’ll share some more pictures here tomorrow.  Speaking of my FaceBook Page, I am starting to use it a lot more, so if you’re interested in hearing about funny things my kids say, what I’m up to during the day or just want to connect in another social media outlet, make sure you “like” my page.  I’m having a lot of fun with it!

My favorites for FFF last week were all white, so I decided to go with colors this week.  Here are some of my favorites (and I posted a few more on Pinterest)…

Amanda from Studio 1404 painted this beautiful buffet in the most gorgeous aqua color.  It really is perfect for the piece and the distressing brings out those amazing lines.  I love this piece, Amanda!

Jared & Rebecca of The Shaver Shack shared this very cool waterfall hope chest makeover.  They used one of my favorite dressers for inspiration, but made this piece entirely their own.  Rebecca was uncertain about the distressing, but I think that’s what makes this piece special.  It brings great texture and color to the room.

Kennesha from Restoration House Interiors went with a classic look for this highboy dresser. She used ASCP Graphite with a natural wood top and the original brass hardware. It’s so simple, but I love the understated beauty of this piece. (She has super cute tags, too. This girl has good taste!)

Here are the rules for our furniture get-together…

1.) Your post has to be about furniture. Please, please, please…just furniture. If you find your link has been deleted, it’s not because I’m mean, it’s because your post was not about furniture. You can share makeovers, awesome finds, favorite pieces, furniture arrangements, or even pieces on your wish list! Built-in furniture like kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities qualify as furniture.

2.) Post a permalink (the link to the post), not the link to your blog.

3.) This party will close Friday at midnight PST and I will choose my favorite(s) and feature their piece(s) on next week’s FFF.

Enjoy the party!
