Hey hey! Welcome back to the first installment of the second half of Feature Friday! Make sense? If you’ve been with me for a while, you know that Feature Friday has been around for a while. I stepped away from it for a minute, but I miss it. And I miss highlighting readers. So it’s back! And it’s goooood.
If there’s a feature I love, it’s one who is a crazy visionary and one who says, “I followed your painting tutorial” to make it look that way. Just sayin’… Alicia from The Swedberg Project e-mailed me a while back and showed me a be-u-ti-ful project she took on. And believe me—it required vision.
She turned a consignment vanity into this! I’m not gonna lie. The girl knows how to accessorize (that mirror!!), but the vanity is really the show stopper.
She followed the directions I gave for my grandparents’ buffet, and (like me) swears by the final product! She did use water-based primer, however. That will be good to know for those of you who can’t find oil-based!
Alicia found the classy, sophisticated, perfect knobs for $2.00 at Hobby Lobby. Great choice, eh?
Thankfully, she included some close-up shots so you can see the details. It’s just a fantastic job, and I’m SO thankful she shared it with us!
Alicia is building (done building?) a house, so maybe we can convince her to share more of it with us. Peer pressure at its finest, right? Please go visit and tell her how awesome she is! 🙂

Just beautiful! The little dog in the top pic is pretty cute too! Off to visit….
This is amazing. The finish is perfect too. Thank you so much for sharing!
That IS worth building a room around! The size alone is wonderful, plus how perfectly it fit the space. Divine intervention for sure! The wall color, lamps, knobs, everything is perfect!

Thanks everyone! You know how to make a girl feel special. We have been so busy with around the house projects I think I’m going to have to start blogging about all of them! I have plenty to share so I’ll be in touch! Thanks for the inspiration!
