The Orange Room

It is my dream to refinish a card catalog.

There is no doubt in my mind I will one day find it.

I have a perfectly wonderful entryway just waiting to house one.

We kept the vintage wallpaper on the inside but cleaned it up and sealed it with a clear coat…so it is all nice and clean to store your things…

My cousin (knowing my love for all things re-purposed) came across a fantastic designer, Katie Thomspon with Recreate…and I just had to share.

Taking recycled furniture to a whole new level.

I will take one of each. Thank you.

Just a little inspiration for your tuesday…

Working on this now…

We sort of owe our lives to Nathan’s brothers and dad…they devoted yet another precious Saturday to help put the roof up on the workshop.

Um, the pitch of the roof was a death trap…

the workshop tin roof

Definitely a SLIGHT chance necks could have been broken on this day….but its not any fun with out risks….

I mean….its awesome, right?

Sometimes I just stand in it while it’s raining and admire how nicely I am staying dry…

Not really, but if it rained, I totally would.

cheers!

Anthro has these on sale and if anyone would like to buy the set for me, that would be fine.

Such good inspiration for a room…

You can tell by this post, I am VERY impatiently waiting for the paint to dry on my next piece.

Looking forward to sharing on Monday!

My UNBELIEVABLY talented and closest friends over at Kellan Studios just completed one of my most favorite photo shoots over the weekend.

Of course this could be because they used No. 11 as a PROP and LET ME TELL YOU…..he looked GREAT.

The lighting, the gorgeous models, the headpieces, the clothes….the furniture :) It all was spectacular.

Aren’t we just SO proud of No. 11?

BEST find EVER.

My brother-in-law stumbled upon THREE rolls on vintage wallpaper in an abandoned home on his property. I tried to contain my excitement….because it is JUST WALLPAPER….but…oh man….this is gonna look gooooood on my next piece….

We had a good ol’ fashioned BARN RAISING at our house this weekend.

It.

Was.

So

Exciting.

Nathan, his 2 brothers and his dad all helped raise the walls, put in floor joists and put up rafters…all in ONE DAY. This skill never ceases to amaze me and I am SO thankful.

I rarely go, but every once in a while I will find something at the goodwill that can be given a little love and easily fit in my home.

These lamps @ $5 each +  yellow paint + new lamp shade = perfect bedside lamp set…

Still deciding on lamp shade colors….hence the plastic…but you get the idea…

Sweet!

cheers,

Pretty stoked we were able to pick these pieces up the other day…

I know some of you will judge for painting this one…but the picture looks WAY better than it is.

{2}

13 china cab before

Yes, it is solid wood…..great detailing….but a HOT MESS….the color is all funky and it needs some serious love.

Working on the trunk now….thank you ALL for your color suggestions! It was VERY helpful and I think I know just what to do….

Have a happy weekend!

cheers
