I just love switching out my window treatments...it changes up a space and gives a fresh look for a turn of a season! But this Fall I am psyched to try this new DIY project...making acrylic curtain rods!
If you go on Pinterest you will find a ton of tutorials

Good Morning Notebook Readers! I hope everyone had a great weekend and are ready to take on another Monday. Boy and I had a mix of work and play this weekend but doing it together made it all a blast!
So excited to get in our conference room chairs in...they are stackable and heavy duty metal which will help with any wear and tear!
found these cardboard letters at Michael's on sale for $1...Larsen is my married name! Can't wait to get them painted and prettied up!
Never throw something away that you thought was trash...this sink that my Father-in-law helped me remove from the kitchen was so gross and dirty...I wanted to just buy a new one but after he said that he would try to clean it....I was happy I listened to him!!! You won't even believe these before and afters...check it out!!!
Saturday afternoon Boy and I headed out to a cute neighborhood outside of DC called Woodmoor. My parents actually bought their first started home in this neighborhood. We met three couples, a total of 7 kids, and had a great afternoon drinking some cold ones, playing on the playground with the kids, face painting, balloon making, and pumpkin painting. Boy and I don't have any little ones yet but it was still fun to hang with our friends and spend the afternoon together.
So Saturday night I met up with my guy friends, Dan and Jesse, to watch come college football! Fun times!
I hope you all had a great weekend filled with family and friends like Boy and I did! Now I'm headed into a very busy work week with some very fun projects including an octagon painted dining room floor, a peacock painted hutch, a geometric print painted dresser, and many more projects for the studio!
Have a great Monday people! check back in all week!
Hey Notebook Readers! Hope everyone is as pumped as I am that it is Friday. I am excited to share this Friday Finds because it is a neighboring business of our studio!

They are helping us create our logo decals for the studio signage so I wanted to give them a shout out...check out some of their decals!
They have more options then you can wrap your brain around! And they do any custom decal you want! So head over and check it out!
So I have been working hard getting the studio ready...from painting, tearing down walls, replacing light fixtures, installing a kitchen counter, and much more it is finally coming together! And I am SO excited to get all our furniture in this week! Check out the transformation...
More pics to come when the furniture comes! So excited for mid November! Many more details to come about our retail and opening! Have a great day people!
Yesterday on my way home from NYC I stopped at IKEA for a bunch of small items for the studio...cups, mugs, plates, utensils, dish rack, and much much more. As I was veering my way around the market I took notice as to how much their fabric by the yards has grown! And I have to tell you all the fabric averaged less then $9 a yard. Not that you want to have fabric that everyone else may have but there were some traditional patterns that you could get for less!
check some of em out!
Now its just finding a project to use it on! Do you have dining room chairs to recover? Throw pillows that need new life? A table that could use a new runner? So many simple projects that don't even require a sewing machine.
So if you have or do use some of this IKEA fabric by the yard I'd love to hear about it!
