FEATURES and Everything but the Kitchen Sink

I've made a resolution!

I'm going to start doing my EBTKS features BEFORE the next EBTKS! I know, it's a crazy, whacky and zany idea, but I just might be able to pull it off.

For too long, I've been neglecting my poor "You've Been Featured" button. It's sad and lonely and needs some use! So, without any are this week's features!

Art is Beauty shows us how to make this awesome vintage mirror. I've been wanting to try this forever and can you believe she achieved this result with toilet bowl cleaner? I know! Go check it out!

And, my favorite furniture re-do lady, Korrie from Red Hen Home knocks another one out of the park with her clock table. I mean....really? Can I have this? Please???

And Amy from Tulip & Turnip tackles an amazing upholstered ottoman project that turned out....amazing! I love her fabric and her inspiration piece is pretty much an exact replica of what she created. Awesome job!

I'm a sucker for a vintage mantle and Danny from Cottage in the Oaks snabbed a genuine, vintage mantel from an old church! You can't replicate this kind of weathered, old, patina look! And I love that clock!

Ok, Elizabeth from Elizabeth & Co. is known for her beautiful furniture transformations...but look what she did today! It's a lovely ruffled pillow....swoon....I love this! It just reminds me of a comfy shabby cottage somewhere, waiting for people to come and chat and relax...ah.....

And finally, Melissa from Shabby Love re-did this farmhouse table with...wait for it...steel wool, vinegar and rusty bolts and nails all mixed together in a jar. Crazy, right? Who knew all that could create such a beautiful finish!

Ok, ladies, don't forget to grab your featured button below!

Now, on to the link party!

This week's question....

    Hope yours is a blast!
