new inventory

As much as we’re loving winter and the quiet simplicity that it brings, we’re already considering spring and perhaps a flock of chickens too.  Paper mache or the real thing. We’re undecided.  What do you think?  The paper versions are pretty darn adorable and require very little work.

We’re obviously about 2+ months away from digging in the garden soil but it’s not too soon to start preparing,right?  How handsome are these forged iron tools?

If we can’t have garden flowers, we might as well have galvanized flowers!  galvanized flowers

There are galvanized roses for your sweetheart too.  Valentine’s Day is just about 2 weeks away.  Check out these pretty vintage-style cards…

Good morning friends and happy Monday! How was your weekend?  Our was filled with final wedding DIY projects and prep…mostly outside because it was gorgeous out.  I’m getting so excited for our wedding festivities!

In the meantime, a little eye candy for you…

We have this amazing pair of oak twin beds in!  Only one is pictured here but honestly there is a phenom pair.  So I cleaned them up and hydrated the wood with hemp oil from Miss Mustard Seed’s milk paint line which enriched the color and patina of the wood.  This hemp oil is the bomb.  I’ve used it for so many projects from hydrating wood like this to a top coat over paint on a porous surface and also in between layers of paint.

Each bed comes with a solid antique oak headboard, foot board, side rails & slats.  All you need to do is add the mattress and box spring. Check out the detail on the foot boards…

I pretty much love them and keep imagining a twin room featuring this pair of beds (only one bed is pictured).  So tell me, how would you style a room with these beds?  I pulled a few inspiration photos below of twin rooms.  (Please do not pin them from here, rather click the source link to take you to the original image.)
