Daily Drool

A little birdie and design guru tipped me off on the Jimmie Martin site. The design company strictly works with private, commercial and high-profile clientele, so unless your Pete Townsend or Kylie Minogue forget it. According to the press, "Jimmie Martin Provides an eclectic showcase of one-off pieces of furniture combining the decadent and quirky with the nostalgic and urban."

True, Jimmie Martin has fun with refurbishing and definitely produces one-of-a-kind pieces.

What I like about Jimmie Martin is that it's inspirational for your own DIY projects. Find a Chippendale table at the flea market, paint that sucker with a bold color and lacquer the hell out of it. Are you gifted in the arts unlike this clumsy girl? Paint something atypical on that headboard or side table. Do I hear a project in the future?
