1970 DWS on a Road Trip!

We went to Ellicott City last week to source some unique items for a client. If you have not been there, it's well worth the trip north. Funky stores, a beautiful town and great food - what more could you ask for?

New Life for Old Tables

We found these separate tables at The Back Dorr in the Mosaic district. We spray painted them a glossy black and used them together in a client's office. Even though they are not a set - painting them the same color brings them together, gives them some cohesion and makes them work well in the same room together. Easy!

Embellishing to Personalize





This was an easy project.  We found this cool wooden medallion at Target, but it needed a shot of color for our client's wall.  We used Aubusson Blue from the Annie Sloan chalk paint palette, and it helped us achieve just what we were looking for.  No prep work required!

Progress at my Watercolor Class


I'm halfway through my very first painting class EVER!  It's a "beginning watercolor" class and the teacher has been great:  showing us how colors work together, how to use water to create a different effect, and most importantly to enjoy the process.  I am enjoying it.

What I'm Reading

 
 
I couldn't put this down!  Kind of like Gone Girl, but more subtle and drawn out.  Plus you actually like the heroine of the book:)

Before/After :: Bathroom



We recently helped a doctor's office suite to choose finishes for their new bathrooms.  It's amazing what a coat of paint and some tile can do!
