What We Accomplished Wednesday #14

Want to be a pin-up girl?  Join the party, and if you are featured, I'll pin your project to my Green Willow Pond Features Board!

The sun is shining, it is about 63 degrees out and it is a glorious day!  I've been outside spray painting and enjoying the bird song.  Love it!!!

It's been a busy week around here.  We left Friday morning to head down to Kalamazoo  (5 hour drive) for our daughter Jamie's graduation ceremony.  She has one more summer class to take, but they let her walk with her class.

 We are so proud of her and what she has accomplished!

The weather was so nice there, that I was dreading coming back home, but we must have brought the warmth back with us!  I did manage to finish a couple of projects this week. I finished and posted about this frame I was working on a couple of weeks ago.  I went a different direction with it than I intended, but I really like how it turned out.  You can read about it here:

Spring has been slow coming this year.  The trees are just now starting to bud here, and I am longing for my flowers.  In the meantime I shared this post.  Are they real or faux?

Enough about me, lets talk about you!  The link-ups where awesome as usual.  I am constantly amazed at the talent shared at this party.  It was a hard decision, but here they are:

My place for Tea shared how she turned this damaged mirror into this gorgeous piece.

Aimee, at the Vintage Estate, did it again this week!  She used a faux zinc technique to turn this table into an amazing replica of a Restoration Hardware piece.

Isn't this two-tone dresser sweet?  Char, from His & Her Restoration, posted this chalk painted piece.

I love this idea for growing herbs or flowers!  Patty, from Creative Ideas and Tips, spills where she got everything for very little.

Denise on a Whim created these adorable pedestal signs.  These would make great shop signs, wedding table signs...anywhere you needed a sign!

Deborah, from Ramshackle Romance, found this sad, worn, cane chair with the cane intact.  She breathed life back into it.  Isn't it gorgeous?

Is this grain sack dresser not amazing?  Tanya, from Twelve O Eight, used her homemade chalk paint to transform this piece.

Check out this charming magazine rack at Vintage Breeze.  Sayuri transformed it with duck egg blue chalk paint.  

I love the soft gray color of this pretty little dresser by Mimi, at Vintage Charm by Mimi.

Here I go with chocolate again.  Someone save me from myself.  But I can't help it!  Doesn't this pie look absolutely scrumptious?  Check it out at Posed Perfection.

Now it's your turn to shine!  Check out the rules, then link up your fabulousness!!
