Introducing

We're thrilled to the work of Elisabeth,  a teacher at Forest Bluff School and a resident of Lake Bluff. In between classwork, Elisabeth renews old furniture with bright colors, floral design and cheerful patterns.

An artist after our own hearts, she scouts the curb, flea markets and thrift stores for good candidates to transform from old to new again. She's committed to using secondhand whenever possible to give new life to existing furniture.
