Are you so sick of my paint stick projects? I might be obsessed with these slim pieces of wood. There are just so many things you can do with them. Since I inherited a box of paint sticks, anticipate more projects in the future. So Krylon asked me if I wanted to participate in a Spring project featuring a color pallet of their choosing. So they sent me two color pallets (one of which I will showcase later this week) to use to create something Springy.
Hi Infarrantly Creative friends! It’s Sarah from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs and I’m back to share a simple update to an old trunk that anyone can do. A few weeks ago, I found a beaten up antique trunk at a thrift store for only $7. Yes, $7! I love thrifting! Once cleaned up, it was a little better, but it still needed a wow! Inspired by the latest issue of HGTV magazine, I created a bright, modern take on an old trunk.
So on our 16-hour-turned-22-hour trip to Florida we listened to a lot of music to keep the kids happy. Isaac and his buddy Andrew begged for us to play “I’m the Man” by Aloe Blacc and to roll down the windows while they sung it loudly. I think we listened to this song at least 15 times. Watching the boys get that “I’m the Man” look on their face and groove and dance in their seats was definitely a memory that is ingrained into my head whenever I think of our Florida trip. I thought it would be fun to make the boys a shirt as a memento. The both love the shirts (as do all the boys in our neighborhood). In fact Isaac is on day three in a row of wearing it. I keep reminding him it is beneficial to wash it – he isn’t convinced.
Don’t you love this back porch by designer Cindy Mihuc that was recently featured on House of Turquoise? It’s gorgeous. Everything on this porch is purposeful, from the porch swing to the storage bucket drink station. It’s totally possible to make a comfortable, useable outdoor space like this one–even if you don’t have an actual back porch. Check out the tutorials and ideas I found online to see five ways that you can get this look for less.
