I won! I won!
What, you ask? This fabulous award from the equally fabulous Jen at Sanctuary Arts. I consider Jen to be the Queen of Furniture Makeovers, so when she created this award and sent it to five people, including me (for my dining room makeover), I had to smile. Me? Ladies, when you see some of the other furniture makeovers she included and awarded, you will be so inspired and amazed, you just may rush outside with paint brush or spray can before you even finish your coffee.
I am supposed to pass it on to one person. The first person that came to mind was Kimba of A Soft Place to Land. She even does Furniture Rehab Tutorials! But, she's already one of the original five that is getting the award straight from Jen. Sooo... the next person I immediately thought of to give this award to was Marie at Watch the Wind Blow By for her lovely makeover of a dining room/kitchen hutch. Here's the before and here's the after. It's a piece with great bones that just needed a little paint and a little lovin' and voila! it's got a new life and a new identity.
Thanks again to Jen for this fun award. You know, it's ironic that I was already thinking about furniture makeovers. In fact, as I'm working away on my e-zine (nevermind that I'm a whole week behind) I had already written an article on furniture makeovers. I guess great minds think alike! Oh, and if you're on my e-zine list...well...it's coming...really, it is... :-)
