I’m always interested in DIYs, especially about old furniture, from which one can often learn tricks of the trade. Knack Studio offered a furniture DIY (on Spoonflower’s blog) that’s unique for it’s use of wallpaper in transforming a mundane piece of furniture into a “foxy” show piece: Dresser Refresh DIY

Knack Studios’ dresser DIY so charmed and inspired me that I actually reached out to Knack Studios’ founder, Barb Blair, to inquire about our own potential collaboration. Using my vintage nautical charts, I creating a color-matched series of South Carolina coastlines and had it printed on Spoonflower’s giftwrap paper. The resulting map-papered dresser project we worked on together, Beaufain (below) was featured in her second book, Furniture Makes the Room.
