Happy Friday Friends,

We are so happy to bring you some beautiful furniture pieces, a few new products, and a couple of new techniques.  This piece was totally reconstructed and then refinished by Kristine from The Painted Hive. It is so unique, I just couldn’t wait to share.  When I read her process, I couldn’t believe how easy it was.  There are several steps, but each step is really pretty simple.

Lucy and I are working hard on the Fix’s redesign and direction for the fall.  We are so grateful for your faithfulness during this transition.  Many, many thanks.

In the meantime, we’d love to have you follow us on social media.

Beth from Make Me Pretty Again restored this dresser by painting it with high gloss paint.  What’s interesting is that she used a brush.  She explains all about the process on her blog.  But I think this is the first time I’ve read about applying high gloss with a brush and getting a sprayed-on look.  Kudos to Beth.

Beverly and Janice are the dynamic duo behind the the blog Sawdust Sisters.  They do all kinds of great building and DIY projects.  So when you hop over to check out how they made this bench covered in awesomesauce, plan on staying awhile.  Ladies, thanks for sharing your ultra fab bench.

Melanie from Lost and Found Decor painted this chest using a new line of colors from Fusion Mineral paint called Tones for Tots.  She is a certified Fusion mentor and merchant so if you have any questions, she is certainly our resident Fusion expert.  Thanks for sharing, Melanie. We love the chest.

And Kristine from The Painted Hive gets the prize for doing a complete restoration and refinish on this amazing console.  The blog post is so detailed that I won’t even try to tell you about the steps.  Just know that Kristine has truly poured her genius into this piece. Thanks so much for sharing with us, Kristine.

    Hi Susie, beautiful features this week. Swooning over the tribal dresser! I hope my link this week qualifies as a piece of furniture, albeit outdoor furniture. If not, feel free to remove it. Have a great weekend!
