Hello March!

Things have been moving so quickly around here!  We listed our house on the market this week, and boy was that a whirlwind.  I thought it would be fun to share a few of the images from around the house.

Below is the finished music room, remember it was kind of empty in my Dropcloth Curtains post. We refinished the piano and added framed sheets of music to the back wall.  The music sheets are selections that include: the first songs our children learned to play, favorite songs and tough songs with the kids hand written notes on them. 

My own quick snap ;- )

My better half hung the chalkboard that the kids and I made for the Chalkboard Paint! post. We decided it would make a fun "menu" in the dining room. I am still working on the tablescape for the dining table and the "wine corkboard" which you see in the image below:

Finally, as a testament to what a big difference a small investment can make, here are some before and after photos of our bedroom:

The bench and chair were in different rooms of the house, and fit much better in the bedroom.   The pillows were my biggest expense, but make such a huge difference. Let me know what you think!!

All the best,

Subway Signs

I love the custom subway signs on Etsy, Restoration Hardware, Pinterest, etc. They are everywhere and so cool.

This past Christmas, I decided to create my own version as a gift to my hubby. Ours included places that are special to us. There are many different ways to format and create these signs. I decided to go with having a third party print my work. I went to Gallery Direct. You are able to print your "art" on several different mediums and I really wanted something other than I went with wood. Here is a picture of the finished product. (Sorry for the angle and blur on the picture)

If  you are interested in the template leave a comment, and I will email you the photoshop template.
