When it comes to furnishing spaces, I almost always know exactly what I want. Inspiration might come from a magazine or the internet, could be an image I’ve conjured in my head, but whatever the case, I rarely settle until I get what I want. Incorrigible? Yes, I know. But it’s a double edged sword because that’s also partly the reason my office remains empty … and the living room … and the dining room. Knowing what you want and being able to afford it are two different things. That’s where furniture makeovers come into play.
I love the idea of purchasing a great piece for a reasonable price and with a little elbow grease, paint and luck discovering something totally new and different . . . a Beautiful Surprise!
