New Knack Studios Collaborations


Barb Blair of Knack Studios recently sent over these photo's of a new venture of hers. She's collaborated with two local artists creating three unique pieces so far. Barb mentions she wanted to push the envelope and "up the anty" in her furniture world.  The first piece is one she collaborated on with her friend Annie Koelle (love the landscape feel) and the second set is a desk and small chest of drawers she did with her other friend Eric Benjamin. And I just noticed they are starting to show up in her etsy shop.  Check them out here.  If you're new to Barb's work, you must browse around, not only her online shop and but her site and blog as well.  Heaps of inspiration. Also stay tuned this coming spring for Barb's new book (which I'm super excited to get a copy of) where she offers up a heap of furniture DIYs!
