Kitchen Storage: Before and After


We used this table once a year at Thanksgiving and now that we have an expandable table I realized I could find a better piece of furniture to hold some stuff & clear off my counters. (yes that's a trashcan on the table thx to my little one tossing out my $400 pair of sunglasses-grrrr). My mom found this vintage wardrobe- it's perfect to hold appliances on the right and the drawers have bibs, potholders, cutting boards and much more. Plus it takes up less room and makes my kitchen feel bigger. I plan on putting a shelf above it for my vintage mason jar collection and repainting the turquoise at some point. The folded tablecloth on top is from my great grandmothers house. Love the vintage look!

The Art Bar- who's up for some doodle therapy?

My friend and fellow artist in town has created a super fun "art bar" in her studio. I visited today and made 3 fun mixed media pieces that are now hanging in my studio. Had so much fun- thank you Sylvia! Can't wait to go back with some more ladies and make some more awesome art! Check it out and book your own doodle therapy session- http://youcreateartbar.weebly.com


Here's a quick pic of her fun space! Check out the gorgeous paint colors on display to play with. 
Lastly are my
3 little pieces that I made today. The top map is of Needham & the other is of P-town (2 fav places). Text that you can't see says "it is what it is"...I'm always saying that! Obviously the zinnias don't need explanation.
