Dropping in to say "Hi".
I was looking around at my blog the other day and besides the fact that a lot of things need updating I've noticed I've totally dropped the ball with DIY projects. I have a few planned and decided to mark them on my calendar..you know in hopes of actually accomplishing one of them!
On the RG Furniture front things are chugging along. I have some client pieces I've been tackling and a dining room table that has been giving me a run for my money.
It was all done.
The top was a really pretty whitewash/reclaimed wood technique. I went to apply the poly you know the kind that isn't supposed to yellow...well what did it do...yellowed my beautiful table top.
I had to step away before I took a hammer to it.
I was bummed.
I'm still bummed but that's all part of this gig. Experimenting.
So back to the drawing board. I haven't mustered up the energy or creativity to get back to it yet but I will.
I've gotten back into Pinterest lately. There was a point where I just couldn't keep up but over the last week or so I've really gotten my creative juices flowing again and have pinned some great new eye candy.
And if you're on Pinterest and want to check out my boards you can fine me @ "Averybird"
Don't even know where to begin. The textures. The layers. The mix of patterns. The warm palette. Divine.
I saw this photo and did a cartwheel across the room. I've been torn with what to do in our empty room...or better know as the room I take all my furniture pictures in. I love that this is a dining space but relaxed and looks like it could be multi functional with the settee pulled up for additional seating!
Vintage cheese graters with candles. Nuff said.
Jeff has really gotten into fishing this summer. Avery loves it now too. I totally think I'm gonna DIY this for under the Christmas tree. We may fight over who gets to play with it first!
