admiring the light from my chandelier in bed - ready for a long walk - delicious watermelon popsicle - extremely lazy target shoppers
We found a new (to us) furniture store - Jonathan's Coastal Living, where I fell in love with nearly everything in sight. Like these trunks...
and this chandelier...and these headboards...
and (my favorite) this sofa...
See what I mean? The store was beautifully designed, and left me lusting after everything!
On Saturday night, our friends invited us to their (beautiful) new home in Laguna Beach for a delish farmer's market dinner. They served a vegetable stir-fry over quinoa- I was in food Heaven. I tried my first-ever (sad, I know) roasted beet, and fell in love...they now hold a regular spot on my grocery list. We had a great time, and ended the evening with an array of '80s music and sweet potato bread, yum.
sunset from their dining table...I.am.jealous.
And now, on to my promised weekend DIY. While I was not ambitious enough to paint my front door, I am loving the TWO projects I did complete!
Polka Dot Tea Towel
You Will Need:
- tea towel (or other textile of choice)
- craft paint - I used Martha Stewart Craft Paint ($1.99 at Michael's)
- spread your towel out over newspaper or magazine
- dip your q-tip in the craft paint
- press q-tip onto fabric (each dip should cover 4-6 dots)
- repeat until towel is completely covered
This process is extremely simple, but a bit time-consuming, so set yourself up near a TV for Sex & the City reruns or a good movie!
Painted Wooden Spoons
easy way to allow spoons to dry
You Will Need:
- wooden spoon(s)
- masking tape
- craft paint
- food/baby-safe shellac
- use masking tape to create your line
- paint handle using craft paint (I used 2 coats of the Martha Stewart Craft Paint)
- allow to dry, and finish with shellac
*Spoons should be hand-washed
Voila! I hope you enjoy these simple, fun tutorials!
Have a great Monday!
