Share Your Style #52

Hello everyone!

So glad that you could join us for another week of great inspiration!  I'm Kelly from the Essence of Home and will be your host this week.

  Last week, I was very busy with my son's bedroom makeover and adding some fresh pops of color to a few rooms in my house.  I look forward to sharing more of that with you this week.  

Now, for this weeks party, remember that we have added two new hosts.  So, your link up will display on all five blogs at the same time!

I have selected a few fun features from last week to share with you today.

How to Nest for Less shared her daughters cottage bedroom makeover.  I just fell in love with it!  Too bad that I never had any daughters to do a sweet room like this for.  

Rose Bakes shared this yummy recipe for strawberry cake.  It looks so delicious and would be perfect for Valentines Day.  Hmmmm.............maybe I'll give this a try myself.  

Orphans with Makeup shared how to make these beautiful pink and white shabby chic book bundles.  I love how easy they were, yet so unique and pretty too!

Do you notice a theme to my features?  I think I'm attracted to everything feminine!  

If you were featured, please grab this button and display on your blog.

Ok, now it's your turn to show us what you've been working on.  Please remember to include a link back to this party on the post that you're sharing with us.

The Craig’s List chair is done!

The Craig’s List chair I shared with you the other day is finally done!
A little paint and some new linen fabric…..
this is how it looks today!


Here is a little reminder as to what the chair looked like when I first bought it.


It was a pretty chair but I don’t have any upholstered furniture with fabric in that color grey.
The finish on the chair was much,much more yellow in person.


After a little paint and some wax……

Share Your Style #51

Welcome to the Share Your Style Party!!!!
A big thank you to all the ladies 
for inviting me to join them in co-hosting the party every week!!!

Lynn from The Vintage Nest is our host this week.

I am so delighted to announce two new hosts will be joining us in our future Share Your Style parties.  Des of Peeking thru the Sunflowers and Julie of Little Farmstead both have beautiful blogs with gorgeous photography and inspiration galore.  This means you will now have five hosts and five blogs which means lots of exposure for you when you add your blog link to our party each week.  And we love to have you....we really do.  I am your host for today's party......Lynn @ The Vintage Nest and so happy to see you.

My first feature pick from last week's inspiration is from Shabbyfufu.  She shares she is working on simplifying her home and shows us a corner of her living room with a few winter elements in it.....gorgeous...isn't it?

Chelsea of Two Twenty One blog, shows us how to make tissue paper flowers.  With Spring just around the corner, which means graduations, baby, bridal showers and all manner of parties, these would be gorgeous and inexpensive decor.  

Laura of the blog Decor to Adore, received a ton of vintage doilies and wandered what to do with them.  I hope she doesn't mind me sharing her pretty face, but I just had to show you the beautiful scarf she made from them.  How romantic!  Thank you Laura for sharing. 

And finally, I just had to share something red for Valentine's Day and I think Virtually Yours does it perfectly with these delicious and beautiful cupcakes.  This photo has me drooling!

If you were featured we would love for you to take and use this button for your blog.  You deserve it!    Don't forget to add a link back on our blog to the party and please visit some other blogs.  It's such a great way to make new friends and keep the old.  

xoxo Lynn.......Now let's get this party started with your personal style.....vintage, antiques, make-overs, do-overs, recipes

A little paint project…….

I bought two of these lamps from Kirkland's a few months back to go on the chest in the upstairs hallway.


When they arrived the finish on them was a little darker than as pictured.
I lived with them for a while but didn’t love how they looked with the mirror and painted chest.
SO, I painted them!


It isn’t a huge transformation…..I just wanted a lighter look so all it took was a little grey paint.

I love this basket….the lid is a little wonky but I think that just adds to the charm.


This is the view when you reach the top of the stairs……
