Rustic, Recycled and Chic Link Up #6

I’m back from Florida and although I had fantastic weather, I think the temperatures in Michigan may have actually been warmer some of the days! – CRAZY!  At least it wasn’t a shock to my system coming back home :) .

It’s time again for another PARTY!  Link up as many crafts and decorating projects that you want…..as long as they are rustic or shabby chic in theme…or contain at least one recycled material.

First though, let’s take a look at some of the features from the previous two parties:

Here is a fantastic idea by Ribbonwood Cottage using old shutters, a pallet, some picket fence pieces and an old sprinkler piece to make a cute and useful storage shed for small gardening supplies.  Talk about recycling!  I love the styling too!  Check out the tutorial to see how this was all put together.

This chair by Vintage Mellie was given a fabulously chic new life!  I love the distressed paint and script fabric.  Check out the before and after pictures for a full appreciation!

This project by Design Dreams By Anne made me laugh!  And no, not because of how it looks —it’s beautiful.  But…because this is the third version and I can so relate.   Sometimes you need to keep reworking a project until you are totally satisfied.  Check out the process she went through to reach this point.  I actually thought all of her versions looked good :) .

Finally, I love the mixed media art that was applied to this vintage bottle by Alyssa Beth.  The old bottle was transformed into a chic decorative accent.

If you have been featured, feel free to grab a featured button, from my side bar,  for your site.

Now for this week’s party!  There are just a few guidelines to follow:

1.  The link must be rustic, recycled or chic in theme.

2.  You must link up the URL from your project post and not your blog home page.

3.  I would appreciate a link back to this site to help get the word out.  You also need to link back if you want a chance to be featured next week.  You can either grab my party button from the side bar or simply add a text link to the buttom of your project post.

4.  To stay informed of future parties and other daily posts, you can follow this site by facebook, twitter, google+, linky, RSS, email subscription or my newsletter.
