Restyled Sundays #38

Welcome Back to Restyled Sundays

Ok, so it is really Monday, and I thought about not having a  party this week. But my brain said
go ahead, so I did. I can't tell you how tired I am from packing and sorting out stuff from the office.
We have 9 more days to be out of there, but so much left to get through. My brother is coming
from California next weekend to help my folks get out of their house, why does so much have to happen at once. I just can't wait until June 12th, since all of our moving deadlines will be over. 

 Anyway, enough of my sob story, let's get on to your stories.
The party was rather small last week, I know everyone is busy with Mother's Day
and Graduations. So, I really thank each of you that participated.

Barb from Turtles and Tails shared this great tutorial on
transferring  a design with freezer paper.

Melissa from Shabby Love added some transfers to
old picnic baskets for a truly Shabby Chic look.

And, Shabby Gals adorned this sweet little chair
with an owl. I guess I am all about transfers this week.

Now, let's see what you've got to share this week.

Restyled Sundays #37

Welcome Back to Restyled Sundays

Once again we have had a busy week. My mom and dad got a contract on their
house yesterday so now we only have one month to get everything out. I doubt if we will have
time to have an estate sale since we have to hae all of our dental eqiupment out of our old space by May 31st. We ave been trying to find a place to donate our equipment to, with no luck yet. I f you know of a charity that would like dental equipment, please let me know.

Now let's see what you have been sharing this weeek.

Kathe from Kath with an e found this adourable mexican couple
and used them to adorn her Cinco De Mayo tablesccape.

Angie with Knick of Time Interiors add a chalkboard element
to this old tool box and framed it in vintage tape measures.
I would sure love to have this one.

Miranda from Pressing On shared how to creaate some
homemade chalk paint and make the table legs appear dipped.
her ladder bookshelf. I love the bird shelf!

Finally, Chelsea from Kiss My Brass found Pyrex Madness
while thrifting recently. She sells her goods on ebay, so check her  out if
you are look for some good pieces.

Now lets see what you've been up to this week. If you have been featured, be sure to grab the

Restyled Sundays #36

Welcome Back to Restyled Sundays

Once again it has been a really busy week, but at least I feel like we are beginning to get a grip on life.
I am starting to find my way around the new office and feel somewhat at home. I haven't done much yet to move out of the old office, but today I am going to spend the day there and pack and sort.
I spent the day at my mom's new house yesterday and hung her pictures. There is still alot to do,
but she is starting to get organized as well.  I was actually able to post once this week, if you didn't see my redo of a Duncan Phyfe table, be sure to check it out here.

Now, let's see what you all shared this week.
We had a really great party, thanks to everyone who joined in.
My favorites are:
I love this super functional kitchen island made from a pallet.
Check out Becky's transformation at Beyond The Picket Fence.
Stephanie from The Cozy Old Farmhouse took a set of Ikea
cannisters and made them look old with faux galvanized metal lids.
They turned out awesome!

JoAnn at life at 2810 shared the most interesting find.
No one seems to know what it was, but she turned it into a photo holder.
Be sure to check it out.
And finally, Cyndi from Blue Star Antiques share this updated foot
stool that she recovered with a stenciled piece of canvas.

Now, lets see what you have this week...

Another New Life For Duncan Phyfe

I'm not sure why I love Duncan Phyfe tables so much, maybe it's the name, or maybe it's the legs.
I think it's the legs. Anyway, your sure do see alot of them around.  The last one I redid here,
I went with black. This time I used ASCP in Old White.
I love the off white and the beautiful distressed and waxed finish.
This time I did not have chairs to paint, but I found some inlaid wood chairs that really work well.
They were on sale in another booth for $6.00 apiece. I love deals like that.

A little distressing here and there...

Check out those double legs.

I think she turned out beautiful, what do you think?
