What We Accomplished Wednesday #19

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!

Wow, my weeks are whizzing by!  I promise I will have something new to show you before the month is up.  Then hopefully July will settle down a bit.  June is always busy for our family, with graduation parties, getting the garden in and our annual church camp week.  Add a new job with crazy hours and something has to give.  Unfortunately for me it has been this blog.  But I will be back with lots of summer projects soon!

I'm loving all the link-ups in the party and must confess I am a wee bit jealous of all you are getting done ;)  But I am storing up the inspiration for future projects.

This weeks Top Ten starts with this gorgeous hutch painted by Lisa at Create Inspire Me.  I love the new colors and those curvy legs!

Cindy at Sunset Coast shared her stunning kitchen makeover.  Inspired by some other gorgeous kitchens, she painted her lower cabinets black and the uppers white.

Looking for a smaller project with a lot of kapow!  Check out this gold painted clamshell by Diane from Extraordinary Day.

I'm loving this makeover of a French Provencial dresser.  I think I will be painting my daughter's French Provencial desk in a similar manner.  Sayuri at Vintage Breeze did an awesome job!

Isn't this the sweetest floor lamp?  Don't throw that broken lamp away.  Look what Terry from Forever Decorating did with some teacups and a coffee pot!

Andi, at Delusions of Ingenuity, transformed a sad little nightstand into this beauty with a little paint, imagination, and a bit of trial and error.  I'm loving the metallic painted details!

Here's another fabulous dresser transformation. Deborah, at Ramshackle Romance, took a tired old dresser and turned it into this gorgeous piece.  I'm a sucker for the use of script on furniture, especially with a French flair!

Isn't this desk and chair set darling?  I love the color and the bandana that Susan, from Sunflower Hugs, used on the chair seat.

 I recently picked up a tart pan like this from a local thrift store, knowing I would eventually find something to do with it.  I love this idea for a cupcake stand by Jenna from Rain on a Tin Roof.

I just picked an armload of rhubarb the day Jennifer from Thimbles, Bobbins, Paper and Ink shared this yummy sounding Rhubarb Crumble Pie.  I can't wait until I have time to try it!

So what have you accomplished this week?  Link it up below and inspire us all!

Da Simple and Easy Rules

  1. I hope your new job is going well, Deborah. It's always hard at first as you learn the ropes. I'm amazed you still have time for your link party, let alone apologizing about no new projects. With all you have going on, I hope you're giving yourself some time to rest. Don't worry, we'll all be here! :)

  2. Deborah, hope you are starting to slow down a bit. Life is busy and doing a blog is a lot of work. You do a great job and we all appreciate what you do by letting us share. Have a great week Andi thewednedaybaker
