our latest projects

Our main project at the moment is Olivia's room. Josh painted it yellow, a color that I picked out, but I'm just not sold on the color yet. I think it's just brighter than what I had in mind. We ordered her furniture this week--it's white so I'm hoping once we get everything in there and in it's place, the color won't seem quite so dramatic.

Olivia's room in progress. We have a lot to do!

BRIGHT yellow walls!

This is the prayer that I say with Julianna each night before bed. Julianna has a wooden plaque with this prayer on it in her bedroom--it's the same one that I had in my bedroom as a child. I order this canvas print from Etsy with the same prayer on it. It was about $10.00 with shipping. I bought the frame at a thrift store for $1.50. Josh spray painted it and now it's good as new. I love how this turned out!

I have done a project similar to this one before. It's recycled art using toilet paper rolls. It's cheap and so much fun to create. The last one I created was just an abstract design. This one has been a little more challenging because it's a flower. I have been working on it for about 2 weeks and I'm getting closer to being done. It's one of those projects when it's hard to decide when you're done. The flower will be pink and white. It's also for Olivia's bedroom.

It was time for a new wreath. I looked at my front door in mid-January and realized that I still had my Christmas wreath on the door. I found the pretty, polka dotted letter S at the thrifted store for just 50 cents! A little laquer and glue and it's good as new. I picked up the wreath at Wal-Mart for $3.00 and the green tulle for $2.50 (we didn't end up using much of the roll at all so I can use the rest for a future prokect). This was a very inexpensive way to spruce up the front door!
