Let’s talk burl. Ever since sharing our guest bathroom reveal, the messages have steadily rolled in… “where is that gorgeous burl vanity table from?!” and “please tell me you have a tutorial for that!” have been the two most common questions. Sadly, burl is kind of tough to source and a tutorial just wasn’t in the cards for the vanity table as we tried to rush to get the bathroom completed before house guests arrived, BUT- I do have good news. I modeled the table after a simple Milo Baughman vintage waterfall table and there are plenty of those floating around, as well as other gorgeous pieces on the market. I went on a rampage for this month’s Best of Etsy to bring you my favorite vintage burl pieces you can buy right now. Click through to see what I found, and for a rare peek at one of our guest bedrooms…
Burl is actually a deformity in wood that creates a beautiful swirling, organic pattern. I love that it’s unique and almost looks like a piece of art. Burl pieces really add a ton of warmth and texture to a space! Did you know, the burl vanity table in the bathroom isn’t my only piece of burl furniture? I’ve been a fan for awhile. Remember our entryway console from our previous living room? I could never get rid of that thing; I love it so much. I also picked up a couple vintage burl nightstands, pictured at the bottom of this post. They live in one of our guest rooms upstairs.

There are SO many gorgeous pieces in that roundup! I’m honestly tempted to add to my burl collection. Is anything specific catching your eye?
There’s just something about the odd texture I can’t quit. I wasn’t really in the marketplace for nightstands, but now that we have four guest rooms to furnish, I figured I might as well swipe those up.
All of our guest rooms are functional, but they’re certainly not renovated or styled as I’d like yet. Just having the pretty nightstands in there, alone, make me feel better about the space.
Who else is a fan of burl? Emmett actually told me I need to “chill out” with the burl a few months ago. Haha! There for a minute, I bought a few burl things in a row and he apparently thought I needed an intervention. Please tell me I’m not alone.
