October Feature of the Month:
Congratulations to Mary @ The Boondocks Blog!


Mary worked some magic on a bedroom set using chalk paint and wax, and a little bit of distressing, to endow it with wonderful vintage appeal. She created her own personal "soft green" by layering paint and mixing various colors for a final coat. Even though she painted the dresser weeks ago, she managed to match the headboard perfectly. We all agree it's a job well-done!

Vintage Charm Features of the Week:


Cecilia’s Pick 



What do you do when you are hunting for that special something for festive party decor? If you're Cecilia, artist and blogger from The B Farm, you Repurpose Canvas Art for Halloween to create a hauntingly whimsical mantel display! I love how she brought an unused canvas back to life--recreated art at its finest! Visit Cecilia and get the details for her simple technique.

Dianne, at Deanie's Stash took a drawer she picked up while thrifting and turned it into three ideal little storage boxes. They are the perfect size to display items in her antique booth or or to use at home for organization or decor. This drawer project turned out to be one of Dianne's all time favorites, so she sees a bunch more mini storage drawer boxes in her future. (I'm seeing a few in mine too.)

Kathleen’s Pick



Jillian over at Vintage & Co. lovingly upcycled a vintage piece that I am in LOVE with! She purchased a vintage wooden mail bin that she then stained and added funky legs to, and voila! It's now ready to double as craft room storage or maybe even a shoe bin for a mudroom. The showroom in Lancaster, PA is actually in an old barn! Who could ask for more? Drop by and check out the upcycled wooden mail box sorter and see for yourself.

We live in an online world where it can be very difficult to develop truly new ideas. Laura at Decor to Adore has successfully created a fall/Halloween project that's outside the box--a black and white tablescape celebrating Cinderella's Enchanting Pumpkin. Elegant and romantic, sparkly and fun, it's a thing of beauty.
