I’ve been working on my second Decorating Dilemma and should be ready to post that next week, but it got me thinking… What about doing Furniture Dilemmas? I know my readers love furniture makeovers and, since I don’t have a studio space outside of my home any longer and I’m not getting ready for markets and events, I don’t work on furniture anywhere near as much as I used to. So, since I’m not working on furniture for me, why don’t we work on it for you?
I receive e-mails and DMs pretty regularly asking about what to do with a piece of furniture and it would be fun to bring those conversations to the blog.
So, here is how it will work…
Send a few pictures of your piece of furniture to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the e-mail title Furniture Dilemma. They can be wood, painted, upholstered, whatever. All furniture is welcome! Also, let me know what colors you like, the look you’re hoping to achieve, if the piece has any problem areas or needs repair. You can even send along an inspiration picture.
From there, I will create a post with step-by-step instructions for getting that look including links to products and to specific tutorials to help you get your project done.
Won’t that be fun?
I’m looking forward to it!
If you’re not familiar with my furniture makeovers, I have worked on (literally) thousands of pieces of furniture over the years. I do everything from upholstery to slipcovers, painting, refinishing, stripping, furniture repairs, and upcycling pieces that are orphaned, broken, etc.
Here are a few examples…
And, if that’s not enough, you can find more furniture makeovers HERE.
