Columbus Day Mini-Projects

10 Oct

Long weekends are really great for getting projects done around IBB. You can work and also still take a day off. This weekend I was able to accomplish a few things:

First I was inspired by the stripes in the nursery over at Stucco Bungalow and decided to add them to create an accent wall in the living room.

A quart of paint, Frog Tape and a couple hours later I wound up with this. but I’m wondering if the dark navye stripe was too bold of a choice? hmm..

Then I picked up these really great grocery store ads from the ’30s from an antique co-op in Geneva this weekend and I decided to frame them and hang them in the kitchen. For 15 dollars and some frames these were a really great deal.

I also finally did a Pintrest Project! When I saw this confetti art idea I really thought it was cool so I picked up a canvas, gold wrapping paper and a circle punch and hung these in my bedroom.

    GO STRIPES! Kudos to you for pulling off some fantastic bold stripes. You must have the patience of a saint!

    Love the navy/white against the gorgeous wood trim & your vintage suitcases!
