Epic Love Poster

I am constantly inspired by Pinterest, and this latest project was taken from an awesome poster I re-pinned originally from a site called www.notonthehighstreet.com .. but I knew this was something I could easily make myself in photoshop.

This is how mine will look once printed..

Ah, we’re so in love.

It was really simple, I just put it together in photoshop and used margins.. using a text box per couple.

So I’ll post a new picture once it’s printed and in it’s oh so vintage frame. My bedroom is almost all the way put together!

it’s okay for a girl to dream

It’s that time of year again. I start putting together a folder of all my yard inspirations that I would love for my own yard. And every year my yard looks a little worse than the year before. But I feel like this might be the year that we make some progress.. I know, sounds crazy.. but I have already trimmed (butchered) my huge tree in my back yard, and planted some potters…so there. I really want a fire pit, with permanent seating like this guy. I also love the idea of a little waterfall behind the pit..

I have a wood pile in my backyard right now that terrifies me. I know there is a spider city in there, and anytime my kids go near it I have an anxiety attack. I love the way this looks-a somewhat organized stylish wood pile. Maybe it would contain some of the chaos that is my wood pile that is going on right now.. Spiders runnin the show and thinkin’ they own the place in my backyard.


And this guy. How awesome would this be? Now I just have to get to work, I’ll keep you posted if any of these dreams ever come true!

And I wanna know-What projects are you aspiring to this summer?

damask fakesy wall paper

My craft room/home office has needed some attention for quite some time now. I love that patterned wallpaper is so in, but I didn’t want to go to all of the work of wall-papering so I started looking for other options. I found a wall stencil from a company called cutting edge stencils through Etsy, although they have their own site at http://www.cuttingedgestencils.com/. I have since seen that Hobby Lobby has a few patterned fakesy wallpaper stencils of their own (but not AS big as the cutting edge stencils). Originally, I put it off because I thought it would be a lot of work-but it was so easy!


See? That’s a 6 year old, yo! Easy.

What you need:

Stencil

Paint (I used leftover Behr Ultra)

Small Roller

Painters Tape

Measuring Tape

Let’s not kid ourselves here. I am by no means an expert, and if I can do it so can anyone. I finished my wall in less than an hour. It was as easy as taping the stencil to the wall and rolling the paint over it. I made sure there was never too much paint in the roller so it didn’t bleed into the stencil, but found that if I had to push paint out of the roller that would make it bleed also. I found my groove just by trial and error. Even the tries that I felt weren’t perfect still look good.

Here is the almost finished project..

I’d love to hear if you’ve tried stenciling or wall paper. If you have any questions, post me a comment!
