    Gosh, to have such talent! I love to paint furniture too but not nearly as creative as most I see online. I do love the zibra brushes though so here I am! Good luck everyone!

    Alice’s work is like a well seasoned dish. As flavors enhance but do not distract from a meal, her refinishing brings out the beauty of each piece without taking over. Very elegant! Thank you Zibra for featuring such talented artists to inspire us!

    Love your pieces! I have one of them that we’ll be turning into our bathroom sink double vanity – but not the 9-drawer one you did for that purpose!
    okay, listened to the podcast and love your accent!
    i would love any of the Zebra brushes, but especially the round one for turned legs!

    I am always amazed at before and afters! I have been collecting pieces over the years from garage sales, estate sales and family hand me downs. I hope when I start painting I can make the pieces look as great as the ones I’ve seen here! And of course would love me some of those Zibra brushes to get the job done! 🙂

    Where do you find the space to work? Do you have a dedicated room or a clean garage? I have projects I would like to do (hint, I could use the Zibra Brushes!), but I feel like I need a dedicated space.

    Alice’s pieces are beautifully refinished. I haven’t heard of her work before but because of the zebra blog I’ve started following her on Instagram. I look forward to seeing more of her beautiful pieces.
    I shared this contest on Twitter.

    Wow, Alice is really busy! Can’t imagine how she finds the time but her work is beautiful. She obviously has the passion for it. I also find it very relaxing when I paint a piece of furniture. Love your website and being able to “meet” lots of other people who love transforming pieces of furniture. Listened to the Podcast and love Alice’s British accent!

    It is incredible that you have bern doing this professionally for only two years. Your color choices as well as when to stain and how much of a piece to stain or paint are just gorgeous.
    The triangle and round brushes seem to.be popular with everyone who uses them.

    What an inspiring pod cast. I thought I was busy. Ally’s work is impeccable, I’ve been following her a while now on Instagram. It’s so nice to get to know a person listening to your pod cast. Love her tips on promoting your business locally. Donating a small piece is a great idea.
    I’ve been using Zibra brushes for a couple years now and I’ll have to say I find myself choosing them more and more. They really are perfect for me.
    Thanks Lane!

    Alice really has some beautiful pieces! I especially love what I think are the original condition French Antiques Pictured above. So pretty. Don’t think I would paint those either and I paint everything! The triangle trim brush is also one of my favorites.

    I recently started following Ally on insta. Her staging accentuates the pieces well to show their beauty that she’s drawn out with paint or leaving them natural or combo of both. So inspiring that makes me want to paint even more!
