Shabbilicious Friday Link Party and Features!

Welcome to Shabbilicious Friday!

 

Meet the Hosts:

 

And the host who picked this week's features is ... 


I'm so pleased to be hosting this week! I'm Stacy and I blog at 
Anastasia Vintagewhere I share furniture makeovers, crafts, 
and free printables - all reflecting my love for making old things new again!

With the warmer weather arriving here in Ohio, my husband and I 
have been busy busy busy - here's just a bit of what we've been up to lately:
      


Now For This Week's Features:

Danielle at Silver Pennies shared her Technique for Ageing Hardware
If you love the patina on the hardware, 
just wait until you see the whole piece she created 
- you will swoon! 


Nicer than New gave this Vintage Standing Desk 
a classic makeover to restore its former glory. 
It's just lovely in its simplicity, and quite a unique piece, 
don't you think?

I love the clean, fresh look of this DIY Plate Rack 
by Alexandra at Prairie Charm. 
Plus, her blog is bilingual, and as a bilingual gal myself, 
I think that's pretty neat :)

Darrielle at D.D.'s Cottage and Design knocked this 
Vanity Makeover out of the park! 
The color she chose could not be more perfect. 
When you see the before, you'll really get how 
amazing this transformation is!

And finally, you will never guess how this Darling Little Bench 
by Sara at Thrifty Treasure was made. 
I won't even spoil it with a hint :) 
Innovation at its finest, my friends.

Shabby French Farmhouse Dining Setting


I restyled this dining setting a short while ago and wanted to do a quick share.

The table was a similar colour to the chairs.  Don't you just love spindle back chairs.


I decided to paint the table base with white chalk paint, give in a light distressing and coat with clear varnish.


For the table top I sanded it back to the original wood with my belt sander. That sander really does make short work of things. 


Then applied 3 coats of clear varnish to seal and protect.  I love the details of the natural wood.


I decided to leave the chairs in their original slightly shabby state.
