{ before & afters }

Heres a few projects I have wrapped up recently..

A pair of windows I got at a vintage store in San Diego for 10 bucks each!
Painted them white and hung them up on our depressing little patio to try to add some life.

This came out of our ceiling during our kitchen demo, but instead of taking it to the dump...
We made it into a chalk board for Chris' studio.
A little pedestal table my in-laws wanted vamped up

A set of barstools I got at a yard sale for $30
the color of the wood was a little out dated..
Simple black vinyl, darker stain..

 Wire chairs from craigslist $20
Extreme Sanding, and 8 cans of orange spray paint later...

{ S t e n c i l i n g }

Hey There!
Attempted my first stenciling project today! A lot harder then it looks and way more time consuming then I expected! There may have been stomping and a few bad words involved in the process but very gratifying when you see the end result!

{ Seattle Washington }

So when it comes to traveling lets just say I am kinda obsessed. I love seeing new places, trying new foods, and meeting new people. I Finally talked my husband into taking me on a little mini vacation to Seattle to visit some of his family that lives there. We had a GREAT time and I loved the lush greenery and charm that the city has. Grandma Shirley took us to a little town called Snowhomish, I instantly feel in love with the adorable little road lined with charming antique and vintage shops. It took a lot of will power not to buy everything in all the stores and ship it back home. Here is just a glimpse of our trip!
