Made by Heather

Stripes.  I love them.  That’s why when Heather emailed me and told me she’d painted stripes in her little girl’s room I was ecstatic and with enthusiastic fingers, emailed her back asking for pictures.  Check out her toddler’s sweet little (big!) room:



The room was already tan so all she did was put up the white stripes.  She said taping and painting the stripes was tough because of the odd shape of her little girl’s room, which I can imagine, but after a little trial and error, she had a friend help her and all was well.  Doesn’t it look awesome?

And speaking of awesome, the curtains!  They were Heather’s first sewing project (umm, can we say natural talent?) and they turned out great (I’m pretty sure my first sewing project went straight to the garbage)!  The chevron pattern and the bold pink add so much to the room!  She also painted most of the canvases and artwork on the walls and she painted the corner shelf.  There’s so much she did in here for her sweet baby girl and that kind of love can’t be bought.  Ya know? :) 

Thank you for sharing Heather!

Made by Felricia & Curt

A few weeks ago when I debuted our remade coral desk, my friend Felricia sent me these pictures of a desk her and her hubbie, Curt, found at a thrift store and stripped and stained.  I was/am so very impressed because the littlest thought of stripping and staining any piece of wood bigger than a wooden nickel gets me all upset and in a tizzy…a.k.a. overwhelmed.  But, seeing their pictures just might have me begging to try it someday very far away… 



Didn’t they do an awesome job?!  And isn’t that blue chair just the perfect pop of color to top the whole thing off?  Me thinks "yep”.

What about you guys?  Stained anything lately?  Or maybe you’re into the paint can again?  That’s my mode ‘o change!  :)

P.S.  My motivation found it’s way back from Florida and I’ve been a busy bee working on a couple of awesome diy projects!  Think herb seeds, the oven, some spray paint, and a little Anthropologie.  So exciting right?!  ;)
