Getting good pieces into your child's room should be fun! I recently saw these Jonathan Adler Pillows and think they would be adorable in a toddlers room...but the price may not fit the budget! Here are some comparable...
The final product of my gray/white washing job for a client has made my day.You know when something just goes smooth, no major touch ups or in life trial and errors. Check em out!
Happy Friday too!
I wrote about the first two passes of this bench here but it was a pass of a brown wash then a light gray wash...I used a faux glaze that was 1 part paint to 3 parts glaze. They sell it at your local hardware store...after applying thin light brush strokes of this mixture I used a rag to wipe away the excess paint...layer by layer it began to look like the finish product above! Clients happy I'm happy! And she loved it! Happy to make a special nook or bench in a home that much more cozy.
This brick was just not the look client wanted in her family room...we debated over how dark or light we wanted the white wash, which was a mixture of 2 parts semi-gloss white paint to 1 part water mixed well. Same approach you brush on the mixture and then use a rag to wipe down the excess.
Love how this fireplace turned out...now only if Boy and I had one of these...Oh the the possibilities
Rock it this first summer weekend Notebook Readers!
A client hired me to brown/gray wash their entryway bench...the client wanted it to pop so we applied a couple coats starting with a brown wash, then a light grey pass, and I will be applying one more with a straight up gray...excited to see the progress!!!
Happy Wednesday Notebook Readers!
sorry about this no post yesterday busy running around gearing into summer!
Boy and I had such a fun weekend with a BBQ on Friday at the apt and a going away party to one of my deariest friends in the whole wide world- Raegan. She is moving to England to start a new chapter in her life and we couldn't be more proud. Her final bush was a blast...check out some pics!

one of my most favorite dogs EVER...the one and only Ms. Luna B! I'm goign to miss her once she jumps the ponds!
Raeg and I gearing up for the night out
we rocked it at Crazy Lil's in Federal Hill...good times for sure!
Loved the USA and England decor! Cute touch for the party!
Now I am off to go check out the two studio spaces we are looking at in Kensington, MD to open up shop! Can't wait!!!
I can honestly say school is out forever! Today is my last year teaching students with Autism. After 10 years of teaching self-contained special education I am thrilled to start a new adventure in my life. I will be opening a studio in Kensington, MD where I will let all the creative juices flow on a daily basis. More details to come!
So pumped about this craigslist find! As I said yesterday I have been all over craigslist looking for items for one of my clients and check it...I found this awesome faux bamboo table! Picking it up friday!!! Wooohoooo going to be a great one for either our dining room or this may just have to be my new oversized desk for my studio!
I'm think she needs a layer of kelly green!
I found this McGuire Dining Table on 1st Dibs for $6,800 and I found mine for $100...designers style on a budget baby!
A client of mine has been on the hunt for a peacock chair...we have found a ton on craigslist and here is the one we bought for $100. What a fresh coat of paint and new upholstered cushion will do! So excited for the outcome!
check out some rehabbed ones I found!
so many options...a desk chair, corner seating, or if you find a pair they would make really fun bold dining room chairs!
Love it when I get a fun and custom job having to do with textiles! One of my girlfriends has a tough space in her rental that includes a unique bay window. She wanted custom blackout drapes made with a greek key trim...check it out!
as you can see the counter top cuts off the window or any drapery from falling nicely
I started with a white cotton blend, measured out the height and width
