Giveaway Winner!

So I probably shouldn't have my giveaway end on a Saturday... and the start to my vacation week because I almost forgot I promised a winner today!  Lesson learned.  Anyways- now on to the winner for the June giveaway! 

Drumroll please
(Dramatic pause)
and the winner is:

Thanks to everyone who entered to win and found my little blog along the way.  I hope that you stick around and stay awhile... if that's not your style just check back next month for another giveaway!
The winner is chosen randomly by me writing everyone's name on little slips of paper, throwing them up in the air, and catching one name before it falls.  It's pretty much the most fun way to pick a winner! :)



Something you need to know about me is that I love a glorious accent wall.  Last year I showed some of my favorite walls in my house.

There was the wallpapered hallway (yes I put up wallpaper in my house in 2011.  It's not your mother's kitchen grapevine border.)

My next favorite is a frame collage in my bedroom with framed fabric, chalkboard, cork board, letterpress art, and a vintage owl crossword from 1972.  The more on a wall the better.

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! 


And I am pleased to announce that this wall is about to get its spotlight in the accent wall of fame (soon)!

Check back to see the finished laundry room and if you won HERE!


I did it!

I finally emptied a can of paint!  This may come as a shock to some (especially those who have witnessed firsthand my crazy amount of painting and David at the Home Depot paint counter) but I have never finished off a gallon of paint. 

Until now!

Also today I received a Bloggy Award!

Doors, Cake and Gift Cards!

Welcome back birdies!  I hope that your weekend was more productive than mine was!  Like every day of my life I had grand plans of knocking out something off my to-do list.  This weekend was going to be the weekend that I repainted my laundry room... but was slowed down by a stomach bug and this sweet pup Marley (aka 'Lady Diesel') instead.

My roommate Ivy however was way more inspired to create than I was!  It pays to live with a talented baker!  Hello angel food cake!

But I did manage to get off the couch long enough to grab these two doors free off a porch in East Nashers.  Project new doors is quickly coming to fruition!

 I can't believe someone didn't want these anymore!

Lastly, you will be this excited when you get these little bad boys in the mail.  Oh wait.. you have to enter to win them first... go for it!
