First off is Donna up in BC, Canada (beautiful country!) at Funky Junk Interiors She has a style all her own and many people love to imitate her. She's been published, awarded and she lives with her son, dog, and cat in a house that she totally made over herself with "a little help from her friends". This gal has her own sign business and can definitely wield the power tools! She's my role model..........take a look....
This is her shed.....I could live there!
Below are the stairs in her house that she made.....is that cool or what? LOVE!!!!!
Her dresser in her bedroom...amazing talent in so many areas!
She made the table below too..........
Makes you think twice about what's "junk" doesn't it? She makes it all come together and look gorgeous! Donna has more on her website and shares so much about how to do things. If you haven't heard about her yet you need to stop by and see her amazing blog....I only touched on a few areas. This woman is talented and inspiring!
Next we're going to visit one of my very favorites......Julia at Hooked on Houses I can spend hours on this site....literally! If you have a "thing" for houses like I do you have just arrived in house heaven! There is every type of house imaginable, inside and out, commentary and history, befores and afters.....her blog has it all!!!
Above is Grey Gardens....the original, the one they did for the movie and other houses that were built to look like it and finally the original fully restored inside and out....you get to see EVERYTHING!
She has things well organized on her site too...like the Top 20 according to her viewers, celebrity homes, cottages, before and afters and t.v. and movie homes.
This is one of my favs...Iris's cottage from the movie Holiday....I've not seen the movie but I love this house and it's fake....LOL! It's just a front literally........
Below is something I've been thinking of doing to my front closet......
Okay...now sit down before I tell you this.....are you sitting down? Below is a refrigerator door and the items on the shelves are all glued down so you can grab any of them to open the door! I KNOW!!!!! Is that not THE COOLEST????? Almost like a secret passage and speaking of that...I bet Julia's got some of those on her site too. I have to go back and look now!
Next up on our journey is Sausha of Sweet Pickin's Furniture You will drool over what she does to furniture and she's not shy about telling you how she does it either even though she's in the business to sell her furniture. Take a look at this transformation............

Amazing huh? I can't believe she has time to blog but I am so glad she does!
Below are some of the pieces she has in her shop but they go fast so I'm sure it's outdated already....but you can always check her website to see what's available.
She did all of this...the chalkboard door and table below it.....such talent
She also (PTL) found THE perfect shade of yellow ever.....there it is....not too bright, not too pale....just perfect....I can't wait to get some and slap it on something! Anything! I love it! Oh, I told you didn't I that she shares everything too...paint colors, brands, equipment. She is a talented, kind, giving and AMAZING person!
Thank you to all my featured guests today who so kindly shared their time, blogs, talent and gifts with all of us and thank you to all who came with today! Have a serene Sunday!
