Wrapping up the week

We had gloriously warm Spring-like weather this week, which was such a gift! There was lots of playing and exploring outside on our new property, riding bikes, and remember how dirty we get in the summer!

We moved in October, so most of the plants and flowers and done for the summer on our new property, so it’s been really fun watching things start to pop up. I’m getting excited to add some life to the outside of the house with plants like climbing roses and hydrangeas, my two favorites.

Have a great weekend friends!

Girls Room Accent Wall

I am slowly but surely crossing projects in our new house off my list! Giving the girls’ room a little makeover with some paint was so fun! I’m still not completely finished with their room, but I thought I’d share what I have done so far.girls room wall2

Here is what part of the room looked like before we moved in…

I painted the ceiling, walls and trim Simply White by Benjamin Moore. This accent wall is Overcast by True Value EasyCare. It’s a really pretty deep gray with slightly green undertones.

All finished…

After I painted the accent wall the solid gray color, I traced the large flowers onto the wall with chalk. I purchased some digital flower clip art from this Etsy shop and used the flowers as templates while I was tracing. Then I hand-painted the large flowers over the chalk with white craft paint and a small brush.

After I painted the large flowers, I went back and freehanded the vines and leaves.

Here are some sources from the room:

Curtains: Ikea | Bedding: Target & Ikea | “Sunshine Girl” pillow: made by me | chandelier: thrifted

Next on the agenda for the room is finishing a window seat and a gallery wall. The fun continues!

Recent Custom Signs

Happy Monday friends!

We had a mini snow storm this weekend, but it’s supposed to feel like Spring later this week, and I am ready! Bring on the warm sunshine and longer days!

Here are a few custom signs that I created recently…sign every time I close my eyessign I'm no longer a slave

My sweet customer sent me this picture of the “Dwell” sign in her beautiful home. I love her taste! So pretty, right?

Have a great week!

One Second Everyday in February

I mentioned in this post how I am trying to do a better job of capturing everyday life so that I remember what our life is like years from now when my memory will surely fail me.

The app called One Second Everyday is a great way to do just that. You record one second of each day and it compiles it into really fun little videos. I don’t remember to do it every single day, but I try my best with the help of my iPhone alarm.

Here is a snippet of what February looked like…

Wrapping up the week

It was a fun, busy week working on new things in the studio! Lots of experimenting, painting, and creating. It just doesn’t get much better than that. I’m finishing up with renovating the girls’ room, and it’s so close to being finished. It’s always that last 10% that seems to drag on and take forever to get done!

Reclaimed Wood Ocean Paintings

Spring is just around the corner, which means I’m starting to get a lot more orders for my reclaimed ocean paintings. These are truly so unique and fun for me to create!

Hubs is a master at choosing the reclaimed wood specifically for each piece. Did I ever mention I love old wood? Well, I do. And I get to work with it every single day. My dream come true.

These are a few of the paintings that I worked on last week. Each piece is so unique and different, depending on the wood and the colors I choose to use.
