We picked up a bundle of old fence posts from a barn sale a while ago, and I was inspired to turn them into something functional. They had a beautiful shape and so much potential. I asked for ideas on Instagram, and a few people suggested turning them into sconces. Brilliant!
We now have the sconces available on the website in very limited supply. Find them here. I styled them two separate ways - as candle holders and as plant holders.
Here they are as candle holders styled next to our "It's so good to be home" framed canvas.
And here it is as a plant holder:
I decorate with a lot of plants in my home, and I love this unique way to display them! We created them in a distressed white finish and raw wood.
The new Summer 2021 Collection is here! We have new wood signs, canvas wall hangings, printables, and a brand new set of wood risers that I'm so excited to share!
First up, the new wood signs:
And several new canvas wall hangings:
We created this set of three wood risers to be used as plant stands, drink dispenser holders, table centerpiece and the list goes on and on! They are made with chunky reclaimed Maple wood, and the legs are made from barn ladders, giving them beautiful, authentic character!
They are available in three sizes: 3" high, 4" high and 8" high. All of them have a 9" round diameter.
And we have three new printables that provide such easy and inexpensive art for your walls!
This past weekend I hosted a Mother & Daughter brunch in our garden house, and it was such a lovely time! I had my sister, sisters-in-law, mom, and two cousins help me to set up and to serve the food at the event, which was so special. Our menu was deep dish quiche, apple walnut salad, tomato basil bread, and mini Fraisier cakes. Here are some photos of the morning taken by Alyssa Bunton.
I'm so excited about the new tapestries we have available in the shop! These large-scale art pieces are perfect for big, empty walls that are begging for some love. The images are printed onto fabric, then we use a special hand-finishing process to give them a vintage look and feel. The reclaimed wood strips on the top and bottom complete the look.
I've been working on a brand new collection featuring large, vintage-inspired tapestries for a while, and I'm so excited they are all ready and available for you! It was a pure joy to work on these. They are made from fabric that has been hand-finished with reclaimed barn wood strips on the top and bottom. These tapestries are perfect for a large wall that is begging for some attention. You can find the tapestries in the shop here.
I'm so excited to launch my Fall Collection inspired by the new garden house that we just finished building in our backyard! That is where I took most of the photos of the new products, and it's where I feel most inspired right now.
We have several new wood signs, as well as canvas wall hangings, wood bead garlands, and something brand new - candles! I learned how to make these candles and chose my favorite scents. I think you'll love them as much as I do!
I've been wanting to try making a basket pendant light for a while, and when I saw some cute baskets at IKEA last week, I knew they would be the perfect thing to turn into a light!
Here are the supplies I used:
-A basket - mine is from IKEA
-A pendant light kit - available here
I cut a hole in the bottom of the basket with my wire cutter to allow the light cord to go through it.
Then I threaded the cord through it and hung it in my studio from a hook in the ceiling. So easy and inexpensive! I hope you have fun making one of your own!
When you look for a basket to use, try finding one that doesn't have handles and looks like it will be fairly easy to cut. However, for some of these baskets, you could cut off the handles, and they already have holes on the bottom. Here are some of my favorites from Amazon:
I love how it turned out! There is a vent on the wall behind the canvas that I wanted to cover up, so this was the perfect solution.
We created this hanging daybed for Avery several years ago, and you can see the details here. We made it from reclaimed wood and hung it to the ceiling with ropes.
While we have been in lock down, we are always trying to come up with ideas for the kids to work on. And since we are doing school in my art studio where I do my work, they often will create painting projects. My daughter Violet's sketches have been inspiring me lately (she's nine and is naturally very gifted with art), so I decided to create some watercolor/coloring pages out of them for you to use.
You don't need a lot of expensive supplies to do watercolor. I used basic kids' watercolors, a small round brush and water. You don't even need to use watercolor paint - you can just use regular acrylic paint, and it will work just fine. I printed the pages out onto thick cardstock paper, although if you have watercolor paper, that would be best.
Here are some links to watercolor supplies from Amazon:
To watercolor, basically you just need to dip the brush into water, then into the watercolor paints, and brush it onto the paper. You can add more water for a lighter color. Watercoloring is very forgiving, which is one reason why I love it so much.
If you don't have paint on hand, you can simply use colored pencils, crayons, or markers to decorate the pages.
