My Fridays

…are always full of hopes for the weekend. Things to do, places to go, errands to run. This weekend is Fall for Greenville, and I think we may even get to take our bike ride this weekend too!

Quite possibly the most anticipated event though, is adding a new piece of furniture to our house. We’ve been looking for an excuse to buy one of Barb’s amazing pieces for a good while now, and this beautiful dresser will be coming home with us at some point this weekend.

I love the way she breathes new life into old, often broken and discarded pieces of furniture.

Barb gives each of her transformed pieces a name, and knowing that this piece was for Andrew and me, she did some research on our newest favorite place: Prague. She chose the name Vltava, after the river that runs through the middle of the city. What a perfect surprise!

If you haven’t seen Barb’s work before, make sure you check out the before and after photos of this piece in her blog post. Or, if you’re not in Greenville, and her work inspires you to update your own furniture, you can read the how-to articles she writes for Design*Sponge.

Either way, prepare to be inspired!
