Time to Breathe



Wow! Summer is my favorite season of all but I am definitely ready to unwind, get back into my rythms and be HOME sweet HOME



 Here is our cozy new abode! Nestled in the woods amongst the lumbering bears and speckled fawns, I could not possibly love our home more.  John and I have been so busy from dawn to dusk painting, cleaning and unpacking - hence my lack of posts as of late.

 One of the first things I did (besides unpacking the kitchen and our bedroom) was set up my new studio! 

I took the before picture after we had added a coat of primer. I don't know if you can see in the first picture but this room had giant red and black squares teamed with black windows, it took 3 coats of paint (4 if you include priming) to paint this room! Removing the basketball hoop was quite a job as well, I still have to touch up the spot is was with some more paint.


I love how the Ecru paint came out, it has a soft glow without being over powering. 75% of this studio is from antique shops, maybe 10% is Ikea and the rest is "hand me downs" or gifts.

Now back to painting, which I have been itching to return to!
