Oh Baby!

BABY foot

If you follow me on Instagram then you know based on the plethora of adorable photos I’ve been posting that we had our baby!! The entire family couldn’t be happier. For now I’m taking some time to get to know this girl and get in some much needed snuggle-time. 

For the next few weeks the best place to find me will be on Instagram (so follow along!) But have no fear, I’ll be back and blogging in no time. I’ve got a slew of projects I’ve been itching to get my hands on.

DIY to Try: David Stark’s Painted Fabric

I love the idea of colorful table linens for spring and summer but buying new patterns every year can get rather pricy. David Stark, event planner extraordinaire, recently created his own colorful linens for a summer soirée and shared the DIY on Elle Decor

I instantly fell in love! It’s super easy and inexpensive and the best part is you can draw inspiration from anywhere to create the perfect pattern. Use different sized brushes for different stoke styles or even try making your own hand-blocked print and stamp the fabric. 

Layering the patterns is the perfect whimsical look for summer. I definitely plan on trying my hand at this for a festive summer tablecloth or even pillowcases for the deck. 

What DIY projects are up your sleeve for this summer?!
