What have I been up to for the past few days? I’ve been covered in paint working like crazy, along with my family, at my sister’s coffee shop. Although it was a lot of work, we had so much fun.
We gave it a much-needed makeover with paint (mustard + gray = fabulous), new lighting, and, of course, some fun decorations.

I painted this verse onto the wall and really like how it turned out.

The long windows came from an old barn that a friend of mine was renovating. The plates on the wall came from HomeGoods and Pier 1, and I painted the “featured art” sign using an old piece of wood.

Can we just talk about how awesome this clock is?? I mean, really. Sara & I saw it at Hobby Lobby and decided it just had to be in the shop. We had lots of fun shopping for the makeover. 

The shop is now updated, fresh, and fits my sister’s style perfectly. If you’re local, you must visit soon and tell her I sent you (maybe she’ll give me free drinks in return, thankyouverymuch).
Now it’s time to get started on painting my studio! Sheesh. I need a vacation!
