Welcome to Friday’s Furniture Fix #43

Hello and Happy Friday,

I bet you didn’t know it, but I’m from Kentucky.  Not from the horse country part that is mainly near Lexington —but more South central.  And when you’re from Kentucky —no matter where you live— you just love the ponies.  This is one reason why this horse carriage bench by Robin from Redo It Yourself Inspirations caught my eye.  The other reason, of course, is the amazing makeover.This week, we are pleased to share pieces that feature techniques in restoring old wood, stencilling on wood, and using metallic cream paint as highlights.  We hope you enjoy reviewing the beautiful work…….

But first, please say hello to your furniture lovin’ hosts.

Please feel free to follow your hosts on social media.

We’d love to share with you there.

Robin from Redo It Yourself Inspirations has a real knack for finding and restoring benches.  This one is breathtaking.  It’s a full compliment of beautiful lines, metal highlights, and rich old wood.   And notice the marriage of the bench to the base?  It’s hard to tell the difference in the newer and older wood.  Amazing……

Another beautiful makeover is from Brenda at Unique Junktique.  This table gets its depth of color from a special (but easy) application of paints.  She also includes a tutorial about she stencilled the top.

And last is a trash to treasure makeover by Suzanne from The Painted Drawer.  You simply must see the before to fully appreciate this fabulous result.  The wood grain on the top is lesson in how to restore damaged wood.  And the bottom is refinished in a chalky paint and highlighted with metallic cream.  The combination is a work of art.
