some of the last pictures were terrible! i'd imagine some of it in a kid's bedroom! each to their own i suppose! although i do buy second hand or donate, sometimes you really do have to go for new. but new doesn't always mean expensive. it's called 'shopping around' for the best price of things

One of the most beautiful pieces of furniture I've seen had an Indian mural on it.

A lot of people see outdated or plain looking funirture and think it should taken apart and dumped. It's great that there are people that see the value in them and can make them look as good as new or even better than they did before.

I love the look of painted furniture. It's so modern and fun, and a great way to add color to a room.
