Furniture Friday #7 and Link Party

Welcome to Furniture Friday dolls.  It's been an uneventful week as the weather has been California crazy. For you non Californians, crazy california weather includes rain, cloudiness, cool breeze, sun, then overcast, then rain, etc. etc.  I really shouldn't be complaining as I would've given my left arm for weather like this last year when I was living in Cincinnati, but it does put a damper on the projects.

Elaine and I were lucky to find enough sun to get two projects done.  First, Elaine painted this dresser with great lines.  Here is what it looked like before.

She used a red primer and a black paint and then distressed it to show through some of the red.  We call it the Black Pearl Dresser.

and remember that other metallic project I promised you?  Well here it is....
Unfortunately I did not snap a before picture, but it looked very similar to this dresser which I did another metallic finish on.

This time I used Rustoleum Navy Blue on it, but it looks more cobalt and added the metallic glaze in a straight motion.

Now who's up for a party!!

Please put your permalink into the linky and pretty please link back here so we can share everyone's other great ideas (button at the bottom of this post or on my sidebar).   Please do not link any shops!!  Sit back, relax, grab a martini, network (visit other links) and enjoy the  party.

Note: By adding your link you are giving me permission to use your photos on my blog without contacting you.  Which means you may get featured.  

Ok.  Lets see what you got.


As you can see we're partying all week long. I probably need to go to link party rehab.  Oh well,  grab a martini and join us....Monica
