Saturday Favorites

Saturday Favorites are back with a vengeance!
The furniture pieces are fantastic and
you know I had to add a few surprises!
revamped a free Bombay chest
(my dream)
into a spectacular piece-
You are never going to believe what she used!

Stopped guessing?
Aluminum foil-
you heard me right-
Amazingly creative!!

Sheila from Beyond the Portico
created a sunburst mirror for pennies!
There are many versions of this popular
style out in bloggyville
but I think her's takes the cake!
Simple supplies of card stock, gold spray paint
 and a mirror = fabulous
Go check this fab project out!

Jenine from A Bit O' Whimsy
scored this coffee table on Craigslist-
except for the crazy gold top, it has lines to envy-
She transformed it into this beauty with chalk paint-
go check out the before version,you'll be glad you did!

Catnap of Cat Knapp blog
transformed an old shelf into
an adorable cupboard-
love the color, size and especially the little bird
(what did you expect from Bless My Nest!)

Shannon from Fox Hollow Cottage
did an amazing job with this table-
She gives a step by step in figuring out the measurements
(where was this a few weeks back when I was painting?)
Love the colors she chose and added distressing!
Beautiful job!

Kristen from Sophia's Decor
transformed this coffee table
into a little piece of heaven-
A houndstooth stencil was the key
to her success-
Love patterned painted pieces, don't you?
Say that 3 times fast!!

I have a thing for coffee tables, if you couldn't have guessed!

Janette of The 2 Seasons
was very creative when she
 crafted these pillows-
She loves her Ralph Lauren
and found suit jackets at Goodwill at $2 each-
She turned them into handsome decor for fall!
Love the warm, cozy look!

I hope you loved these inspirations
and have a lovely weekend!

Take care, gotta fly
