Tuesday's customer inspiration - Joy and Craig's beautiful bookcase!

Tuesday customer inspiration came to me last fall as yet another of my amazing customers showed me photos of what they had done with something they'd purchased from Jubilee Furniture. Realizing others would enjoy - and might even be inspired by - what our customers were doing with their Jubilee Furniture items it was a natural progression to simply add a second post each week to the blog which was already up and running.

In a nutshell, I invite (at times substitute the word "invite" with "beg," "plead," "whine," and sometimes even "threaten") anyone who's ever purchased anything from Jubilee Furniture to take a photo (or two or three) and email me (at sgalbraith@outreachcommin.org) with said photo/s. The photo/s might show how the piece has been transformed in your very capable and creative hands -or - simply how fantastic the furniture looks in your home exactly as it looked leaving our store.

Today's customer inspiration falls into how fantastic it looks in their home but basically not very different than what it looked like prior to leaving the store - except for a few minor changes and a good cleaning. Let's take a look:

Here's Joy's email: About 3 weeks ago my husband and I saw this beautiful Ethan Allen bookshelf for sale at Jubilee. He thought about it all week, held his breath and went back on Friday to see if it was still for sale. Luckily it was! He purchased it and brought it home.

We gave it a good cleaning and polishing with furniture oil. He went over the scuff marks with a brown furniture pen to cover them up.

Then we bought some baskets on clearance and two brass knobs at Hobby Lobby to complete the look.

For little over $100 we got a stylish and sophisticated bookcase!

Thanks Jubilee!

What I especially love about Joy's email is - for minimal cost and time they truly did create a fabulous storage piece! To read more head over to Joy's blog (and for other creative fun ideas too!).

Until Friday - when I post photos of some of the new-to-us items which have been donate this week - I hope you, dear reader, enjoy each day!
