Vintage Inspiration #102 Villa Barnes

If you're someone interested in remaking, repainting, and restoring vintage pieces and furniture, then you probably know Rosemary. She started blogging a year ago last April and hit the ground running. Rosemary has been in "the Biz" for quite awhile and has a big following in the Chicago area, where she sells in local and area shows. Each of her posts are filled with inspiration, great tutorials, show updates and her latest fabulous finds that she has transformed.

Here's a quote from Rosemary 
 about how she chose her Blog name, Villa Barnes

"Finishes are what led to the name of my blog.  A customer of mine said my weathered finishes  looked like they came from an old chateau or "villa". This was some time ago. When I started my blog, that's the name I went with."

Rosemary's romantic palette of whites and grays.

She can magically transform anything 
with her custom painting techniques.
(magic to us, but it does involve some elbow grease from Rosemary!)

Here is her latest tutorial on transferring images onto old glass bottles.

Thankyou, Rosemary,
for sharing your creations with the rest of us!

If you live anywhere near the Chicago area be sure and look for Rosemary's show dates on her Facebook page. Then go shop your little heart out! And for some of Rosemary's great items be sure and check out her Etsy Shop too.

And for some extra inspiration from last week:
