Finding Inspiration

Thursday, September 13, 2012

We love looking for interior design and furniture refinishing inspiration. 

We find it everywhere.  Even in things we don’t like or love.  If there is a good idea we appreciate it.  I’m posting a couple of images that have given me inspiration, despite the fact they are not my particular taste.  I appreciate these ideas and will reinterpret them in future projects.

I love this idea of taking a small table, refinishing it, and putting a piece of glass on top to make it larger.  I think this idea could be reinterpreted in many ways with all kinds of tables, coffee tables and end tables.  I will definitely keep this idea in mind when I’m looking for furniture refinishing projects in the future.

I also love this idea of using a headboard for something other than a bed, how cleaver to make a headboard into a backrest for a bench.  Perhaps for an entry this would be perfect.  If I was making a headboard into seating for with my table I would probably look for an upholstered headboard for comfort.  Either way it’s a great idea, and can be reinvented in many different styles.
