It was a gorgeous 71 degrees with no humidity in Houston today and other than the pollen that was visibly coating every flat surface I came across, it was a perfect day to be outdoors. I spent my day on a field trip with a group of 7th graders (interesting age to observe in mass, let me tell you) at the historic Kleb Woods Nature Preserve and trails where the students celebrated Texas independence day with the interview of a Sam Houston character actor, good old Texas chili lunch, and a walk through the nature preserve. I was more enamoured with the old farmhouse and all the cardinals darting around than the history lesson of course. It was nice to watch my 7th grade son (from a distance not to seem nosey of course) in his element with his friends at his new school and it made me so happy to see him enjoy just being that age right now. I even got an unsolicited hug in front of the boys when we got back to the school. It was a good day to be a mom today.
So back at the blog this evening, I’m sharing our Vintage Wednesday Linkup featured posts from last week. I am going to be reworking the linkup program here at Bygone Vintage, so this will be the last one for a few weeks while I work up a calendar of topics for future linkups and revamp the program to attract more participants. I appreciate those of you who have been faithfully sharing your links each week, and promise to bring those opportunities back soon. If you have any specific topics you would like to see linkups for, please email me or add a comment and I would love to hear your thoughts.
First though let’s see some great links from our friends…
My Thrift Store Addiction shared a wonderful Vintage Movie Reel Chalkboard Frame that I just adore. My Granny worked at a tiny little movie theater in her tiny little town for so many years back in her prime, and I bet I could have snagged a ton of these once upon a time from the theater owner who used to always give me a free seat and whatever candy or popcorn I wanted. Aw shucks. If I had only been a vintage junkie back then. How sweet this would be for a movie buff or in your media room. Check it out here:
Next up, My Sweet Things shared a step by step of her Elizabethan Chair Makeover and can I just say WOW?! The nailhead trim alone is enough to make me wanna cry, but this chair turned out sooooo beautiful. These balloon back chairs are one of my favorite shapes – so feminine and elegant, yet simple. See for yourself:
Finally, you really have to check out this Revamped Office Storage inspiration via A Crafty Mix. The “before” pic is the epitome of boring office furniture and then where she takes it from there is amazing. Here’s the after…
