Authentic Style Series: June 2011 Features

Pin It

Thank you to all the gals who linked up to the inaugural Authentic Style linky party inspired by the style of Donna at Funky Junk Interiors! If you missed out, you can still link up!!

I enjoyed perusing all of the linked posts. It's amazing how the components of Donna's style (rustic, nature's elements, unique, authentic, clean lines, and creative) can look so similar yet so different when other people put their own personal style spin on them.

Because there were so many outstanding projects, I'm going to feature 10 of my many favorites from the gals that linked up AND included a party button in their post or sidebar. Here they are...

Bait bucket pendant lamp at The 1829 Farmhouse

Barnwood headboard and all kinds of rustic details at Buckets of Burlap.

Metal dresser makeover at MommaHen.

Silverized bird's nest at Cottage Hill.

Garage door turned craft room organizer at Pine Needle Hill.

Vintage door hardware as curtain tie-back at Meridian Road.

Glass bottle stoppers as bud vases at Cottage Hill.

Brilliant arrangement of nature-inspired objects at four corners design.

Display of aqua glass in the sunlight at Chipping with Charm.

Living Room bookcase wall after
Beach mat lined bookcase at Harbour Breeze.

Thanks sharing your authentic style, ladies!
Please grab an Authentic Style award...

I look forward to seeing more of your authentic style
in the second Authentic Style Series post.
