‘Tis the season to promote my friends.  Let me introduce you to Kristen F. Davis.

Kristen is an artist, blogger, jewelry designer, and expert in turning walls into pieces of art.  She has the spectacular gift of rescuing furniture, lamps, you name it, and making them chic and enviable.  She’s not even afraid to try her hand at rewiring an old lamp!  She’s either brave or just plain crazy.  I’ll choose the former.  Below are some of my favorite photos of her brilliance.

Kristen took an old shelf and painted it the same color as her wall to display her white dishes and “trinkets.”  This is one of my favorites.  Read more on open shelving here.

The girl’s not afraid of color.  You can see the before and afters here.  Isn’t that turquoise great?

She paints floors.

And walls.  The black you see hanging from the tree is chalkboard paint.  How cute is that?

She makes jewelry. 

Kristen’s jewelry is terrific and fun.  I recently purchased a fabulous hand-made necklace and the earrings above from her Etsy store.  The jewelry is reasonably priced and ONE.OF.A.KIND.  Love, love, love it.  Check out her current inventory here.  They make great one-of-a-kind gifts!

Kristen offers style tips and before and afters on her blog.  Check her out!  Also, her new site, www.kfddesigns.com will be launching soon.  When it does, I’ll put it under my “Links I Like.”

If you live in the Atanta-ish area and are looking for creative wall, floor, or fireplace painting, she is your gal.

Unfortunately for me, I can’t make things or paint well.  But give me a box of legos and the results are endless. 

Are you artsy, creative like?

    She’s great! If I did an open shelf like that it would look like I just put a bunch of junk on it….oh wait…I have one in my laundry room! :) (cheezy grin)

    She gets all of her beauty and talent from her Aunt Julie … haha! She is absolutely awesome, even if I am a little bit biased.

    Dusty,
    If you are not artsy, there is a little blonde girl in your family that is very talented. I have seen the masterpiece that she made you and Kris with just a pair of scissors and a comforter! And yes, Kristen has always been very talented and Julie, I don’t think you are being biased at all!

  11. Cute stuff. Artsy? Getting ready to be!
