Calling all music lovers! I saw this and loved the idea! Easy DIY too...
Using a large poster frame, which can be found at your local craft store, take old music sheets and glue them to the poster frame arranging them in any pattern you like. Then place them into the frame creating a unique and one of a kind piece of artwork!
I'm happy to share some photos from over the weekend. My grandfather turned 103 years old...can you believe it?! He has seen a century roll by from the invention of the telephone to the ipad! We were happy to celebrate this momentous occasion with our whole family!
granddad and I
here is my sister Molly, my Mom, Dad, myself, Caitlin, and grandad!
All the cousins!
May we all strive to live our lives to the fullest like grandad!
My Mom and I often find gems at yard sales, thrift stores, or just curbside. Sometimes pieces may be missing a door, drawer, or leg but don't think its trash. This is an old dresser that the doors were removed and given a fresh coat of paint. Adding hooks for organization gives this oldie new life!

I have been helping out on a restaurant project in downtown DC this summer and the team has been working hard putting together all our creative ideas to make the place amazing. Here is one of them...turning two old chairs into a bench!
I am totally making one for my home! All you need are a couple old chairs, a piece of plywood, some foam (if you want a cushion), fabric, and a fresh coat of paint! Can't wait to try this!
A friend has asked me to help with her tablescapes for her upcoming September wedding. We agreed that the coral would the center of her theme...check out these easy DIY custom runners we made for her tables!
we measured the width and length we wanted the runner and then cut out each. After that we sewed a 1 inch seam around all four sides of the runner.
the coral chevron will lay on top of a burlap runner we cut and left the sides fringed for a more natural look!!!
I don't know about you but I have had many relatives try to give away their furniture to me...well after this piece remember to always check it out before you say no. My client was offered this piece and it is now looking gorgeous!!! Just waiting for some gold ring pulls and it will be competed!!!
This brown geo design buffet has great bones but is in need of a facelift
Here is the piece primed ready to paint!
I used a semi gloss black for the top portion of the piece
Here are the pulls...for less then $7!!!
A white matte finish for the cabinets...also I little peak inside and you I will find a lined backing! I removed the back carefully, spray adhesived this black/silver/white fabric and then reapplied the back piece!!! It gives an extra pop when you open the doors!
Can't wait to deliver this piece and see not only how my client reacts but the generations before her that experienced this piece!
