Updates!

Hi! Sorry to be away for a few days! We were busy moving. Plus, we're currently without wifi at our house in Maryland .. not good for bloggers!! The internet on our phone is also VERY slow at our MD house. So we're hoping to get wifi in the next few days.

For today, two things.

1. We just finished up our paint project for tomorrow's #cwts2014 post! Here's a sneak peek (the rest has to do with this) .. remember that $3 painting from my thrift store tips and tricks post? It's looking MUCH better! I just spray painted the frame and mat board white (leaving the corners as is) and painted a few dots on a canvas. I've been pinning lots of dotted things recently, so I had to give it a try!


Ranunculus is one of my favorite flowers - so happy to see it in store. btw .. it was snowing yesterday and I'm in shorts and flip flops today, hopefully the warmer weather is here to stay!



2. If you didn't see my post at Infarrantly Creative last week, make sure to stop by!

























We made this tiered light out of aluminum flashing and a few other materials. Tutorial here! I'm obsessed :)

  4. The weather is crazy is it not? I had my flips on today too! Awesome thrift store upcycle. I just saw a trend post on Dalmatian print so you are perfectly on trend!

  6. You did such a great job with that frame and painting, it looks one million times better now! Ive noticed Ive pinned a lot of make-it-yourself artwork - maybe I have to do some painting soon as well !

  10. I can't wait to see the finished entry. Everything you do is amazing. I have a question regarding the pendant light. Is the gold downrod (coming from the ceiling) part of the Januari light kit sprayed gold, or does it extend all the way to the ceiling hardwire? I'm hoping to hang a large pendant over the kitchen table adjacent to our family room where there is a ceiling fan (here in AZ we've been wearing flip flops all winter and we are expecting 97 degrees tomorrow- so we need it), but I don't want the fan to cause the pendant to sway, but I can't find any downrod at IKEA that goes from the pendant all the way to the ceiling. Does that make sense?
