I get a lot of inspiration from various other bloggers and “furniture artists” I have discovered over the past three years online.  You may already be familiar with the lovely women I am about to share, or their names may be new to you.  Either way, their work deserves to be recognized and passed along.

So join me as I introduce you to my five favorite online furniture artists!

Mary of Orphans with Makeup

Mary’s work is always highly professional.  Her finishing techniques are so varied, she is constantly presenting something new.  Her photography and staging are stunning as well.

Linda of Q is for Quandie

Linda finds some of the most beautiful pieces to makeover!  I am often drooling with envy over her latest Craigslist discoveries.  She paints a lot with MMS Milk Paint (which I love using) and has a whimsical, fun style.  Plus, her writing style is full of energy and spunk.

Suzanne of The Painted Drawer

Suzanne also produces professional quality makeovers that are always elegant and refined.  I have had a little bit of interaction with her over email and blog comments, and she comes across as a genuine, kind person. Her blog is filled with gorgeous images and inspirational makeovers.

Rachel of Shades of Blue Interiors

I have not had the pleasure of meeting or interacting with Rachel, but I feel like if we ever do cross paths we would be great friends.  Her blog is youthful, energetic, and very stylish. Rachel does a lot of excellent hand-painting on her furniture, which is a style I love.

And lastly . . . Marian of Miss Mustard Seed


In my mind Marian’s work is the ultimate in furniture style and transformation.  She is my blog “idol,” and I mean that in a very non-creepy way 🙂  Her pieces have inspired so many of my furniture makeovers, and much of what I know about fixing and repainting furniture I learned from reading her blog.

Please take a minute to visit each of these artists and show their blogs some love.

I hope you have been inspired!
