Mod Mix Monday 33

s w e e t
Time to start thinking about Valentine's Day.
I'd like to wake Valentine's morning in this sweet bed with Franklin's head 
on the pillow next to me. 
That is how I've been waking the past few days...to sweet puppy breath.

Yes, here I go again with this week's Mod Mix Monday not getting posted till a day later.
Please forgive me...

There were so many good projects linked up last week...it was so hard to choose 
my favorites...but here I go...
I was in love the moment I saw this room from Bonnie aka "The Hopeless Romantic".
Distressed chippy white 1920's dining room set...oh...yes.
Mixed with a slip covered banquet complete with shabby pillows and beadboard 
and wait for it......blackboard walls!
It's dreamy and everything you'd want for a Valentine's breakfast.
A precious little Art House from Thistlewood Farm
I know we all wish for a place like this.
Jaclyn showed off all the updates of her place at I Design.
Of course her best accessory is Chloe...sitting there on the sofa.
But the whole place is dreamy.
Laura at Cottage and Broome painted this dresser turquoise and turned it into a stunner.
Amy of The Salvage Collection painted this dresser bright red and made a hohum dresser....a Wow!
Sherry at Pondered, Primed, Perfected had wished for a Pottery Barn tripod lamp 
for a long time.
One day her husband found this actual wooden tripod at Goodwill for $3.99.
The addition of old lamp parts turned it into a lamp any Pottery Barn lover would desire.
And finally, Maricela of Painted Star shared all her best painted pieces of furniture from 2011.
This was my favorite of her's. I've been wanting something like this for my new TV
to reside upon.
Perhaps I'd paint all the drawers pink. But it looks super great in the glossy white.

Seems like every week the link ups get better and better.

Link up this week's Mod Mixes below.
Remember anything old made over to be new...anything new changed up to look old.
New and old together...
Please include the Mod Mix Monday logo and back link to me.

If you link up..I'd appreciate it if you'd follow me.
Have a great week!
