Fab New JS Release and Some Before & Afters

I am SO loving Carina Gardner's new release over at Jessica Sprague! It's called "Le Petite Paperie Provence" and it is to die for. Very shabby chic, a bit masculine and a lot fabulous! She also has some darling tickets that match the paper kit here. I used this opportunity to create a layout about my sweet nephew, Jackson, and how wonderful it is to be an aunt for the first time!

Isn't he just a sweet angel? **SWOON**

I am so excited that I have been accepted into a local boutique called Trendz! It is a wonderful place--huge with lots of different vendors and goodies. It is busy ALL the time and is only about a mile from my house. YIPPEE! I have been dying to find a place for my upcycled "treasures". Etsy is great, but there are just some things that don't ship well. :) So now I am hitting the thrift stores like a crazy person so I'll have enough inventory when Studio 162 officially opens at Trendz on August 15th. Pinch me!

So, here are some recent makeovers on purchases I made last week:

Painted Valspar's Vintage Blue and shabbied up just a bit!

Fun wooden wine racks painted with my fave spraypaint: Rustoleum Ultra Cover 2X. You literally get full coverage with just 2 coats. Love it.

This yummy little wooden pedestal has been painted Martha's "Milk Pail', distressed, and coated with some poly.

Looks much better in black, doesn't it?

I updated this little condiment holder with a fun bluish-purple Glidden sample I picked up over the weekend.

This sweet chippy keepsake box was updated with a couple coats of Krylon's Blue Ocean Breeze. Love this bright blue!

Lastly--take a peek at this spectacular wall sconce/shelf! It is heavy wood and I picked up two of them this weekend for $8. They are going to receive a chippy off-white finish. Happy Tuesday!

Those wine racks would look so cute sitting on a shelf in my bathroom with white towels rolled in them. Goin' to go look for some.
