“I Heart U” Wood Alphabet Art

i heart you wood alphabet sign

I have adored, over the years of blogging, seeing all the different alphabet walls in nurseries and playrooms.  It adds a little whimsy to the room and, as an added bonus, helps preschool age children learn the alphabet.  I wanted in on the action to create an extreme impact on a wall in our playroom.  This “alphabet I heart you sign” is four feet by almost five feet!  It was a fairly simple project with a whole bunch of Krylon spray paint involved.

Painted Plates Garden Art

I have seen some vintage dish and plate flowers on Pinterest and thought making my own from some inexpensive Dollar Tree glassware and glass paint would add a pop of pizazz to my yard this Spring. These are so easy to make and it is really hard to screw it up.  You don’t need to have painting experience to make this garden art.  Just a few swooshes with a paint brush and some glue and you are all set.

5-ways-to-get-spring-living-room

I spotted this lovely living room at House of Turquoise, and it just seemed to embody the fresh, airy feeling of Spring.  The living room that caught my eye looks so light and cool with it’s combination of washed out sun yellow and sky blue.  I definitely love the custom woodwork (that window seat!) and the eclectic blend of furnishings.  I’m happy to say that if you want a room like this, you can have it!  I’ve collected tutorials for projects that can help you copy some of the fun design elements of this room and put them in your own house.  Enjoy!
