So I really wanted our living room to be unique. When I think of "Living Room" I think back to when I was younger that was the one room in our grandparents house that we were not allowed to play in because all the valuable antiques and nick knacks. The one thing I always loved about it was it had so much history. Every piece in the room had a story and I learned all the stories growing up. It was a happy place, we all would gather in the room for the holidays and other special occasions. My goal was to bring that same feeling into our house, so here they are!

DIY: West Elm inspired Branch Shelves

This is currently our big project, we have never really worked with wood crafting. I wanted something other than wall canvas art for our family room, I found this picture online and looked EVERYWHERE to see where I could buy it. It turns out that the place that use to sell it does not sell it anymore...so I was out of luck. I talked to my husband about it and he being the encouraging person that he always is said "Sure you can do it!"

Seaside Wall Art

Total Cost of Project: $31.00 (keep in mind I had a canvas laying around and I didn't need to buy paints)

I am working on designing our guest room, I wanted something calm and relaxing for guest to stay in...you know nothing crazy or busy. My first thought was we live in Florida and I have TONS of sea shells from all over Florida, why not make it beachy!

Recreating “Starry Night”

This is one of favorite art projects; I came up with this all on my own. I had TONS of beads  and I had no idea what to do with them. I thought it would be different to see an art piece come alive from the beads. So the first step was choosing a piece of art. One of my favorite pieces is Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” I will admit I was a little intimidated at first at attempting the project, what inspired me the most was that it was different and all together challenging.  This project took me over 3 years to complete, not because it was that time consuming but I needed bright blue beads for the sky. It was taking me forever to get the blue beads I needed.
