Hello! I have been recovering all week from our little getaway.
Lake Habeeb - Rocky Gap State Park, MarylandI got to catch up on some sleep and that's all I've been wanting to do since I got back! I hope you are all ready to go for sew & tell! (yes amy, that means you. and you too!)
I panicked a little last night when I realized I hadn't touched my sewing machine all week and needed something to post today!
Then I remembered a quick little project that I had been putting off - The Undercover Crate, by the lovely and talented Laura Gunn. Who I wish I knew (does it count that I know someone, who's sister knows her? I know, how very Ferris Bueller of me.).
I've been following her blog for a while and was pleased to see that we have the same taste in spray paint. You will enjoy looking around her blog. She's got great style. I just ordered some of her debut line, Lantern Bloom, and I cannot wait to get it!
Anyway, back to sew & tell! I have a big plan for my bedroom, involving several prints from Amy Butler's Nigella collection. I made a duvet cover about a year ago. I ♥ it so much! When I first bought the fabric I didn't have any idea what else I was going to do. But it's been evolving into a pillow, duvet, fabric wall art extravaganza! Expect more to come.
Our nightstands are a bit of the problem in the reading material storage area. So I bought some ugly crates and decided to try out Laura's tutorial.
And here it is in it's new home:
It's just a small piece of the overall vision, but I can't wait to finish up the rest! I need to go make the cover for my side now! This tutorial was SUPER easy and took less than an hour (easily).
