Vintage Inspired Drop Cloth Wreath

You know what? This post has been in the works for weeks now.  For some reason, as much as I love blogging, I cannot stay on a posting schedule like I used to be. I feel pulled in too many directions. I've been sick (nothing serious, just sinus issues and a spring cold). Plus, not a ton has been going on here decorating wise. I still need to list this house for sale, so I have been purging, rather than adding and it's looking a bit bland.
 
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I made this drop cloth wreath for my front door. I felt inspired to create one using that material after I was featured on Apartment Therapy (here) in a roundup they did of drop cloth projects. (BTW, I'm completely embarrassed about that project. It is super old, photographed with my old junky camera, and my home is decorated in a style that is totally not me!)

Comparing Fabric & Foam Rollers When Painting Furniture

This is a sponsored post.

Hey friends!
 
A while back I started working with RollerLite, which was exciting for me since I paint so much furniture and they are the leading manufacturer of paint rollers.

Bold Red End Table

Bold and bright colors have been the general rule this past month when it comes to custom orders.
 
Since I typically gravitate towards white and lighter colors in my own home this is been a particularly fun month of work for me.

Repurposed Wine Crate Storage Ottoman

Lately, I've been craving brighter colors.
 
It's probably that I have completely hit my limit with snow and freezing weather and want to add in colors that remind me of spring to my home. Are you all there with me, too?

Vintage Red Dresser

Hey there everyone!  
 
 I spent a good chunk of my week working on custom orders and General Finishes Holiday Red was, by far, the most requested color.
 
This is such a pretty, pretty red. And, I say this not being a huge fan of red, but this just has that prefect true color to it without the undertones of orange or blue.

Fun & Modern Patina Green Chair

Hey all!
 
We've been spending the majority of our weekends road tripping around New England. My boyfriend and I are both super into furniture hunting and poking through flea markets so its the ideal way for us to unwind after a busy and stressful week.
 
During our travels we have been picking up furniture (a couple things for us here and there), but mostly items for my awesome customers.
 
I love to be able to find unique pieces and then work with them to make their vision come to life.
