Happy Cinco De Mayo! Are you…as you read this…..totally filled with tacos, burritos, and fajitas? LOL… I hope so. And I hope you’ve had a great day with lots of good food and fun fellowship. For tonight’s Furniture Fix, we have six more amazing features. Of course, ALL of the pieces that linked up are amazing, but we managed to pick six based on some very special refinishing processes.
Please feel free to follow your hosts on social media.
We’d love to see you there.

CONGRATS TO OUR FEATURES:
In case you’re new to the link party scene, here’s how it works. Each week, each of the co-hosts will pick their favorite two links and these will be featured.
Melanie picked two beautiful pieces. The first is a desk restored by Greg from The Navage Patch. This desk’s journey from trash to treasure was long and difficult. There is much to learn from Greg’s tenacity and creativity in the refinishing process.
Melanie also chose this fabulous coffee table by Terri from Designing Wilder. If you love a good story (and tutorial) about flea market finds turned into showroom new pieces, then this is a great read for you. Terri and her handy hubby actually took a console, cut it to size, and then painted it with a custom color.
Lucy also picked two beautiful pieces. One of Lucy’s picks is this nightstand refinished by Holly from McCall Manor. On her blog, Holly tells the heartwrenching story of learning the age and history behind this very special piece. Still, she has a post that is filled with wit, charm, and great results.
Lucy also chose this cottage cabinet by Suzanne from The Painted Drawer. To fully appreciate Suzanne’s amazing artistry, you will need to see the various close-ups on her blog. She mixed two different paint brands and colors together, layered the paint, and then gently distressed the finish. It’s called “Dreamy in White” for good reason.
And, of course, my picks are also amazing. The first, by Tammy at The Tattered Rabbitt, is a great example of how to combine two tones and get the finishes to work together. This is especially important when the paint color is white. Tammy goes into lots of detail about her process on her blog.
My other choice is this restored and handpainted chest by Brooke from Start At Home Decor. Two things really stand out. One, she replaced the top. I point this out so you’ll never say never to a piece. And, two, are the custom designed and handpainted dandelions. Don’t ever be afraid to be creative and unique.
