well here’s my first diy! it was just a matter of sanding, priming, and painting. but it still took a bit to get the photos posted because well, i’m a lagger. anyway, the project was pretty simple and actually kinda therapeutic. sometimes when i feel stressed i find that painting or redecorating (or shopping… eek. yep, already failed my shopping hiatus) helps. one thing i would suggest is getting decent brushes- something i went cheap on. it’s such a pain when the bristles get stuck in the paint and then need to be removed which leads to repainting. i won’t make that cheapie decision again. better brushes next time!
with spring on the horizon i couldn’t help but gather some dream garments and accessories for the season, especially since i won’t be shopping until then anyway. good thing there’s always polyvore to give me my “shopping” fix. when i do get to hit the stores again i’ll be eyeing lots of black and white, orange (those swedish hasbeens are so cute), and navy. a pinafore is a must this spring as well. i’m sure these picks aren’t much of a surprise (maybe even predictable?). these pieces would be perfect for picnics, trips to the museum, and little adventures with brian. any dreamy pieces or colors you’re looking forward to this spring?
p.s. i know i’m on hiatus, but that backpack is perfect for travel. let’s hope i don’t fail too soon.
