… get sentimental with your artwork?
Whether you’re still holding on to pen pal letters of years passed or are looking for something creative to do with a particularly telling grocery list, handwritten notes can double as custom artwork faster than you can nail another hole into the wall. Simply take the original to your local printer or office supply store and have them scan and blow up the image. Then, head to the craft store for an over-sized frame and – boom – instant graphic-based art for your happy walls.
Now that the temps are finally heating up, I’ve got the great outdoors on the brain. And if I can’t frolic in the fields or bask in the sunshine during the day (curses, deadlines!), I might as well fake it, right? Here are three lovely ways to bring that beautiful, inspired weather inside my own four walls – and yours!:

Admittedly, I’m not the best at DIY projects. I get impatient and stop measuring and then all the sudden there’s a pile of shredded fabric and dripping paint all over the room. Yet this smart dresser transformation from Elisabeth Dunker seems like it might be doable – even for me, yes?
… mural your ceiling?
I posted a glorious chalkboard ceiling last month, but isn’t the idea paling in comparison to this Sistine Chapel-esque muraled room? It’s overwhelming, yes, but is the perfect hiding spot for an art lover with a penchant for painterly inspiration.
