to the windows, to the walls...

So today i had all intentions of finishing that free desk that i posted yesterday.  {oh yeah- it was FREE} But as most of you have probably experienced, i suffer from crafting ADD.  I have so many ideas, and projects going on that i am having trouble finishing one project before jumping with joy to the next.  I guess you will just have to wait a little longer in anticipation to see the finished desk!

In the meantime i wanted to show you my three favorite walls (and a window or two) in my home.  All of these walls used to be a bland butter cream yellow.  While this color was a great neutral color to have on the walls to sell, it later proved to be boring and inspirational.  Over the past two years i have used unconventional methods to jazz up the rooms that these walls are in and even put up WALLPAPER.  Don't worry mom- you won't be helping be strip this paper off the walls anytime soon... because it is super cute!

I finished this hallway with an antique {FREE} window with original glass, and carved bird bookends!

{Thanks sis for the bookends!}
The more stuff i can cram a wall the better!  This is a frame collage in my bedroom with framed fabric, chalkboard, cork board, letterpress art, and a vintage OWL (yay bird!) crossword from 1972 that i found in the bottom of my vintage metal dresser.

This wall is probably my favorite and the most fun!  I painted an entire wall in my kitchen with
RUST-OLEUM's chalkboard paint and my only regret is that i didn't do this sooner!  This is the first chalk board project i took on, and since then everything i own now is a chalkboard. 

back to work!

  3. Thanks Karen! I think my sister got them at the family christian bookstore. I would never think they would have something like that- but they are adorable! :)
