Thursday Blog Share: Furniture Mentors

Happy Thursday everyone!  For today's blog share, I'd like to introduce you to some ladies who I very much admire.  They are women who were once at the same place that I am - just starting out restoring and restyling furniture and interiors.  They provide a lot of learning and inspiration for me and have been very kind in answering questions I have and encouraging me.  If you have a chance, check out their fabulour blogs!

Holly over at Life in the Fun Lane runs her furniture restoration business Whiteberry Reinvented out of Edmonton, Alberta.  Yay for Canadian gals!

Across the pond in New Zealand, Karen shows off her furniture restyling on her blog Restyled Vintage.

 The lovely Barb over at Knack Studios shares her amazing work on her blog and as a guest blogger for Design*Sponge.

Kristen is an artistic furniture painter in Atlanta and I love seeing her transformations for her clients at kfddesigns.
And finally, Twice Lovely is the blog by two lovely ladies Ann Marie and Cara who are turning old furniture pieces into modern designs for the home.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
