We've admired tree-stump stools with painted tops before (see DIY: Garden Stools); we also like these side tables made from felled logs, with exteriors painted glossy white. Designer Marie-Laure Helmkampf came up with the idea for a project in Provence.
Hand painted silver and gold-leafed cherry blossom mural by artist Peter Costello. February 2013 issue of House and Home. Just beautiful. I think I might try to make a small metallic gold cherry blossom painting for our bathroom!
