You may remember our feature about Lauren Marcum and her new store, Columbus Furniture Revival. Lauren gives furniture a second chance at love, and now she also showcases one-of-a-kind merchandise from other local entrepreneurs - everything from candles to cuisine. But what if you want to make your very own unique gift? She's got that covered, too.

Displayed among Lauren's ready-for-purchase furnishings, find lotions from Tastefully Dirty; maps, mirrors and more from Vanessa Jean Speakman; Gretel's Soaps; artworks by Kaylee Paton and Sarah Winegar; Gusto Candles; jewelry from Poor Sparrow, Red Giraffe Designs, Sage Sprouting, and Jenifer's Custom Designs; Delish Dish jams; Backyard Mint cork wreaths; and Logan Family Farms syrup.

In addition to ready-made items and customer orders, Lauren now offers DIY classes in-store each month with everything you need to create your own Pinterest-worthy project. Kick back and enjoy snacks and drinks with other crafty people while you work. This month's project: Mason jar soap dispensers with custom-scented soaps. Next up: Bummer Valentine's Day Cards. Register online with Eventbrite to create fun, snarky cards for your crush, your therapist, or your goldfish... whomever you'd like to show a little love. As an awesome bonus, attendees enjoy a 20 percent discount on all purchases made during the class.

For more information, check out the Columbus Furniture Revival blog, Facebook and Twitter, or stop in to visit and have Lauren revamp those items you've got stashed in the basement, attic or storage unit.
