Suzy's House Party #7 - Link Up!

You might remember that last week I shared this little chevron table and asked for tips on how to get nice crisp lines when painting. 
You readers are the BEST!  I got some great tips.  Flour Blossoms shared the cutest striped laundry room and this tip: tape off your stripes, then take your base color (white, in the case of the table above) and paint right back over the edges of your tape. This way, your base color does all the bleeding through the tape and essentially seals the edges of the tape.  Genius and so easy!

My bloggy friend Vicky from http://decorharmony4290.blogspot.com/2011/08/shes-so-pretty.html from shared this tutorial on painting chevron that she found over at Elizabeth & Co.  Go check it out.

Now, on to the features from last week's party.  I think this was the best party yet and it was so hard to choose just a few favorites. 

First up, is the Red Devil from Life We Live 4.  The detail is amazing and I like her bold color choice.

I also liked this midcentury piece that Vicky did.  It's a little hard to see from the picture, but it has kind of a metallic finish.  Check out how she used Rub 'n' Buff to get this unique look.


Party Time!
