Feeling the winter blues? The cold days of January can make anyone stir-crazy. Instead of staring at the same old furniture, cheer up your space with this easy weekend project using our go-to home déc material: woven wallpaper. Whether you use an old bookcase at home or pick one up from a tag sale, this refresh is guaranteed to help you see your reading nook in a new light! Follow along as Spoonflower’s president, Allison Sloan Polish, takes you through the DIY.
Join author and founder of Knack Studios, Barb Blair, as she leads a night of crafting ( supplies included)! Using techniques from her newest book, Furniture Makes the Room, the “queen of milk paint” will lead you in making your very own refinished jewelry box using supplies (yes, including the jewelry box!) provided by Spoonflower, the leaders in digital custom design. Enjoy light refreshments and snacks as you craft the night away.
Featuring instructions for 15 before-and-after furniture projects including dressers, tables, beds, and more in Blair’s signature bold style, a “toolbox” section detailing favorite techniques and materials, and photos of dozens of inspiring interiors, Furniture Makes the Room unlocks the secrets to decorating livable rooms around statement pieces. Arrive by 6:30 p.m. to learn more about the inspiration behind Barb’s newest book and make a take-home project of your own. Want a sneak peak at what we’ll be making? Visit last Tuesday’s blog post when Barb showed us how to update a jewelry box in under an hour!
Refreshments provided by Trophy Brewing Company, Union Wine Company, and Cupcakes by The Cupcake Shoppee!

If you know a little something about the team over here at Spoonflower, then you probably know we sure do love a good furniture DIY project! We especially love a project that gives a piece of furniture once considered prime-for-the-dumpster a new life with a little tender loving DIY care! Today on the blog, we’re showcasing five of our favorite furniture upcycling projects from around the web.
Barb Blair, author of Furniture Makes the Room and Furniture Makeovers: Simple Techniques for Transforming Furniture with Paint, Stains, Paper, Stencils, and More could easily be considered the “Queen of Refurbishing” in our eyes. Whether she’s using Spoonflower wallpaper to turn a drab dresser into the dresser of your dreams, or working her magic with a bucket of milk paint, Barb has taken upcycling to the next level.
