nothin' like a little "bling"...

I'm learning that I love anything with "bling"... currently working on 4 mid-century dining chairs that will be "antique brass" in color... and now... I've just discovered what to do with my antique desk chair... ooooh la la!

Stay tuned... I found the perfect antique High Point Bending Chair... it's excited to get "Belinda-fied"... LOL!

Lamps, lamps and more lamps...

Wow!  Long time since our last post!

Creativity is in full bloom at mendlbarr... just like our "hybrid tea" rose garden planted awhile back...

Seems that lamps are filling most of my days...  assembling, rewiring, painting and then deciding on the absolute perfect lampshade?  We create one-of-a-kind lighting!

Imagine the changes that evolve by simply switching its finial or lampshade... from elegant to beach cottage to artsy... possibilities are endless!   Final touches with embellishments and paint... ooh la la!

Shipped our first lamp out... client loved it even more in person :)

Stay tuned to a new page on our website that will list our shabby cottage chic furniture as well!   Remember... handmade... because you're worth it!
