Graphic Inspiration

I was a little thrilled when I came across this designer on the front page of Etsy last week. FreyaArt creates these wondrous and colorful prints for the home.

This artwork clearly describes how I like to feel at heart.

Wouldn’t this make sweet decor for a child’s room?

The colors in this one POP! I’ll bet you have a few strange and magnificent creatures in your life!

Hope your week  is off to a vibrant start!

Facelift: Pink Pianos chair

If you stop by often then you know how I love found objects and a good facelift.

I dug this black and white fabric that I am storing in my garage for a client. I decided to use a pinch of it to recover this sturdy wooden frame. It was missing a seat, so I simply traced the shape onto plywood then cut a new one. Luckily, I had some extra foam and batting to pad it and make it plenty comfy. I chose the glossy black paint to add a modern feel to the retro plaid. For now, she’s sitting pretty in my shop.

Make sure to stop by Wednesday, when I’ll announce the 1-year blogaversary giveaway.

It’s already June, 1 year, and time to celebrate!

Studio Rehab: getting organized!

I’m glad to be back after a busy weekend!

This past Saturday, I took one look at my garage/studio and knew I had some serious work ahead. Fall is in the air…or should I say was? and I’ve been thinking about doing some painting outdoors. Here’a a look at some quick organizational fixes that I did in my studio to de-clutter.

Oh~and since I live for using Found Objects, you’ll notice I made two floating shelves out of recycled drawers, drilled a salvaged easel to the wall and painted up some pegboard panels. My goal was not to spend a lot of money on a fancy studio redo, but to tidy up what I already had.

I plan to fancy it up with some finishing touches after I hit up the Malibu Lion’s Club flea market this weekend. I’ll be hunting for a recycling bin, vintage fabrics, and little cool containers.

Wouldn’t it be fun to design a fine artist’s workspace?

On Friday, I am excited to share what I learned at “Get Hung” a little art-biz seminar this past week, plus an inspirational DIY idea.
