Friday's Furniture Fix Furniture Makeovers

Welcome to Friday’s Furniture Fix

Pink Chest #2 view via Friday's Furniture Fix Linkup Party by Orphans With Makeup | The Chelsea Project |

If you love painted furniture, then I have such good news. I have joined 3 other bloggers to bring you a weekly assortment of furniture redos from some of the very best refinishers in the business.

That’s right. If you are an email subscriber, then a post with the newest trends in styles, paints, brush techniques, and colors will drop right to your inbox every Friday morning around 9am CST. Here are a few samples of the high quality work you will enjoy.

Last week, the Friday’s Furniture Fix most clicked piece was this beautiful pink chest by Orphans With Makeup.  Mary produces some of the most amazing pieces.  This pink chest is just one example of her fabulous work.

And, Vicki and Jenn, from 2 Bees in a Pod, took an IKEA rast chest, a clearance poster from Hobby Lobby, and some Modge Podge, and turned it all into a giant vintage telephone chest.  I kid you not.  This was made for a contest where the participants all started with the same IKEA rast chest and were asked to put their unique twist on the piece.  I believe these ladies knocked it out of the park.  What do you think?

Next week, bloggers who refinish furniture will be linking their posts to our “link-up party.”  What readers will see are thumbnails at the bottom of the page with a brief description of the piece.  To read the post, just click the text under the thumbnail and you will be directed to the blog making the post.  Please note that bloggers will be linking up from Friday morning until Sunday night.  This means that if you check back with us after Sunday, you will be sure to catch all of the new posts that have linked.

“It’s been almost six months since we started our furniture party.  And, despite some of the co-hosts having to move on, I was determined to keep it going.  Many of you know the reason I started it in the first place. If you don’t know the reason and would like to know, you can read more about it here.

In order for the party to work better for all involved, there will be a few changes that you will need to note.

A few things will stay the same.  We will continue to have the party weekly and we will have 5 features! Yay!

What will change?

(1)  New go-live times!  The party will start on Friday morning at 9AM CST and end on Sunday evening at 11PM CST.  This means that the ability for the bloggers to link-up ends on Sunday night, but readers can enjoy the posts to infinity…….and beyond.


(2)  Two new co-hosts, who are fellow furniture makeover aficionados, are coming on board!

Can I ask you to give them a warm welcome?  

And, speaking of warm, it seems that we are all Southern Bloggers who come from Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Texas.

Let me introduce our new talented co-hosts:

Susie, who blogs at The Chelsea Project, is a dear soul who has only been blogging for about a year and is already making her mark as an accomplished furniture painter and stylist worthy of magazine features.

Melanie blogs at Lost and Found Decor. She is a seasoned furniture painter and flipper who teaches classes, sells her pieces, and has written an ebook on how to make money selling painted furniture.

 For those who are new, Nancy, who blogs at Slightly Coastal, has been with me since the beginning. Her style is classic, quirky and vibrant, with a definite dash of coastal. She loves to transform her home one room at a time. You definitely need to check out her master bathroom makeover.FFF Intro Nancy
Lucy, who blogs at Patina Paradise, has done a variety of creative jobs. Her most recent love is painting furniture. She enjoys bringing her previous experience as a faux finisher into the realm of furniture transformations.

So, now that you know the exciting news,  please make sure to come by next Friday at 9AM CST and add your furniture fixes to the party on any of our 4 blogs. We look forward to seeing what you have to share.”   End from Lucy
