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…

This is the latest addition to our lovely home…

SO, remember when I said how much I like THIS piece from etsy?

you are my sunshine artwork

Well, I decided to do my version of it on some old barn wood that I stole from my brother-in-law. I knew I needed Nathan’s help on this one, so I asked him if he wanted to do a “together” project. I braced myself for the oh-man-not-another-together-project-look….but instead he was like “oh cool”.

THEN, before mothers day he told me he was actually going to do the project FOR ME as my mother’s day gift. WOW- be jealous you people who didn’t get to marry Nathan.

So here it is. I chose words from a blessing song that is my favorite. Every time I sing this part I think of Ella and my baby boy Lincoln.

I bless you sign

I bless you sign

I love it so much. Don’t believe that he actually took the time to do it himself?? Proof is in the photo:

cheers!

Remember this little gem?  Picked it up at the estate specialist  $3.00 ….

Now the beauty will serve as a nice little flower planter- too bad I know almost nothing about flowers. Any suggestions on what type to stick in it? Since it was an ice box, it already has a hard plastic liner in it….PERFECT.

I thought about polishing the copper on it, but I kinda like it like this….

I would have more pics, but the ice box was whisked away the day I finished it for a big photo shoot (as was a lot of our pieces). Hopefully I can post some of those pics soon.

Cheers!

Ella is 19 months and officially A BIG GIRL (or so she thinks/acts). A month ago we switched her to a toddler bed. I was slightly worried about the switch….and by slightly I mean, I was sure she would be able to get out of bed, open the door, climb over the railing and fall down the stairs.

But NOT ELLA- she was all “SO? BIG DEAL..I am in a big girl bed”. She took to it like a champion. If you know Ella at all, you know that its not always so easy breezy, so YES I am delighted.

Nathan took a very sacred Saturday to make her a toddler bed and I just finished painting it white yesterday. With just one 2×4, and two small boards my oh so talented husband made this ADORABLE bed for our little nubbin for only $30. SWEET, I love cheap.

AFTER: In the room all painted nice and WHITE.

The best part about it? Now when she gets up from naps or in the morning, instead of crying, I just hear a “knock, knock, knock”…..this means she is very politely ready to come out now….SO FREAKIN CUTE! I mean, she is NEVER polite!?! But she OWNS this big girl bed.

Don’t mind if I do…
