Totally Transformed Tuesday #5 & Features

Totally Transformed
Wow! Has it been a week already? This week has just flown by for me how about you? 

I have been working on crochet and knit baby things for my new grandson on the way, Bowen. He is due in November.  I've also been working on several pieces of furniture I will be sharing with you soon, but the work has been going slow in this heat. My paint dries before it hits the furniture! Whew!

Plus, my Hubby and I took a whirlwind trip to Natchitoches, Louisiana to just get away and relax. We had a wonderful time visiting the shops on the river front and touring a plantation.

Now that I have you all caught up on my week...Oh, yes. Still no laptop it seems when I got that major virus about fifty more followed it into my computer! The Geeks are trying to save as many of my files as they can so its taking awhile.

I have had so much fun visiting all of your post and trying to leave messages. I type them but they just won't post! Sigh.  Anyway here are my favorites for this week.

Kathy on "Life on Lakeshore Drive" blog shared her ASCP Emperor Red and gilt table redo. Gorgeous Kathy.

Heidi at "One Creative Mommy" shared how to make freezer paper art aprons and includes the free printable so you may make your own.

Lynn over at "Shabby Story" showed us how to take a barn door, a sconce, some vintage suitcases, a chair, and a darling rosebud pillow and create a lovely vignette! So pretty.

Sherry at "Decorating With Cents" inspired me to go buy some of those big rings I've been seeing in all the stores, add a swath of sheer fabric and make my dining room chairs look gorgeous. Thanks Sherry.

RaNae at "Ewe Creek Cottage" shared this yummy recipe for Spaghetti Squash Tomato Pasta Bake. I can't wait to give this recipe a try.

Thanks to everyone that linked up last week. I wish I could feature all of you (there wasn't a link I didn't like) but old Bess (that's what I'm calling my old cranky computer) is protesting and starting to act up.  So, if you were featured be sure to grab a button.

Now, without further ado...let's get this party started!

Remember to use your post link not your main blog link and to put my button or a text link on your blog. Sorry no link no feature. 

And remember if I don't leave a comment on your blog post its this silly computer cause I'm definitely a viSitiN' and a PaRtin'. Yeehaw!

Totally Transformed Tuesday # 4 & Feature

Totally Transformed
Hello all my blogger friends! I certainly hope your week has started out wonderful! 

Mine has started out terrible! lol I picked up a virus on my new laptop and it wiped out everything on it. :-( It is now at the hospital with The Geek Squad and I sure hope they can salvage something. I am trying to work on my old CPU and she is terribly slow, tired, overloaded, & cranky sort of like me! Keeping all that in mind I will keep it short and sweet today.

Your favorite link last week was..."Raised on Country Sunshine" at Simply Vintageous. She shared her beautiful china hutch redo. Gorgeous job Susan!

Grab a featured button Susan!

I promise to have more features next week. Now on to the party! Be sure to link back to me if you want to be featured and mingle at the party. Don't be a wall flower go visit a couple of fellow bloggers! Have a good time! :-)

I can't wait to see what you've been up to we really do want to see! 

Update! I'm sorry,  I've been trying to reply to all my comments and leave comments at all of your link-ups I'm visiting but Blogger won't let me! Now I'm going from cranky to just pure grumpy! :-) Just know I appreciate and look at everyone of your post. I also share some on FB and Pinterest. Please spread the word.  Thanks.

Fairy & Roses Side Table

Hello everyone! Hope you have had a great week so far.

Today I'm sharing an oval side table I recently re-finished.

Here's the after:

And here is the before:

I picked this table up at a local thrift store and it was in excellent shape.  No dings, scratches, and it was solid wood! No particle board. 

The only problem I had with it just wasn't shabby enough! So, I painted it Duck Egg Blue, trimmed with some silver acrylic paint, decoupaged some tissue roses and a fairy onto the top, waxed it, distressed it, antiqued it, waxed it again, and finally added a darling little pink rose knob! 

I love it!

I'll be giving a tutorial soon on decoupaging with tissue paper. Let's just say you have to do it veeery carefully. lol

Hope you enjoyed my little table.  Have a wonderful day.
