Furniture Facelifts

Design Trends, Tips and Advice

Have you ever had a piece of furniture that serves you well, but just doesn’t have enough….personality anymore?  Then it’s time to think about a face-lift.  Really, for your furniture!  Melly Schwartz of Turn the Tables in Northbrook can give new life, some pizzazz and charm to an old piece, or you can even consign and sell your old pieces.

Melly’s adventures as cosmetic surgeon for furniture actually started about 10 years ago when she found a table lying at the side of the road that was perfect for a project she was working on.  She picked it up, painted it up and gave it new life as someone’s treasure!

Her degree in Art gives her the ability to see ugly-duckling furniture as a swan in the making.  Here are some of her latest beauties:

Be sure to visit Melly at Turn the Tables in downtown Northbrook!  You’ll find her at 1955 Cherry Ln, in the shopping plaza across the street from Sunset Foods (near the old Blockbuster’s).  Phone (847) 272-9966  www.turnthetablesstudio.com
