Weekend Projects

Hi, friends! Did you have a good weekend? Mine was restful and productive. At least in regards to the back room.

First up was the Saturday night paint-fest, partially inspired by Danielle's (and Lara's) artwork. While John was at his 10-year high school reunion, I busted out the paint and Pandora Radio after a quick trip to Michael's for a few more supplies. I think the last time I painted was for this project, so it was nice to get the creative juices flowing again.

I also created a second painting and pulled together a few more items for the back room gallery/TV wall. I can't wait to share how the whole room is coming together!

Sunday was months (maybe years) of mental scheming finally coming to fruition. I've wanted to make an upholstered ottoman or coffee table for quite some time now. Perhaps this DIY-ed upholstered ottoman on Young House Love, planted the seed?

After an excruciating trip to Joann Fabrics (John and I couldn't agree on a fabric); we picked up the items on our Home Depot list. Mainly wood cut to size, Liquid Nails, actual nails, and table legs. John helped me build this naked, legless box, which will soon be clothed in this fabric. Get excited!

What were you up to this weekend?

  1. I have a few pieces of art I need to repurpose (they were from my aunt and not really my style), and I think a couple of them would be really great for that dot art — so cute!
