{ makeover monday with GUEST BLOGGER: BARB BLAIR }



Hello everyone! Happy Monday to you! I just want to start out by saying how excited I am to be posting on this fantastic blog!! Thank you so much Suzanne for the honor!


I am the proud owner of my little knack studio in downtown Greenville , SC where I create custom pieces of furniture and home accessories . I totally love the creative process that happens from the moment I lay eyes on a piece. I immediately start visualizing colors, patterns, papers and hardware. I know ... big nerd! Anyway, once I have decided on a palette I'm off and running!




These two lovely ladies...buttercup and turquish delight ( get it ..turquish for turquoise .. man I'm so clever!!) ... are a couple of my favorites that I have finished in the past few weeks! You can see many more of my before and afters on my blog and if you have a hankering for giving one of your own beloved pieces a makeover, I've created a mini tutorial here. I hope you all enjoy!

I love everything that Barb touches. Her before/afters always leave me inspired and ready to get out my paint brush. It's fun to see her here!

That blue chest is just INCREDIBLE!

Vana said...

it amazes me when people turn something that can be very well considered junk by many into an adorable piece of furniture. Such great feature. Thanks!
