what's bloomin?

Happy Mothers Day weekend to all the mommas out there! Every May I look forward to the blooming of my favorite flower {the peony}. The white ones where the first to be cut from our beds this year. My entry smells so good this morning!

chevron picture frames

Living in a tri-level we have some challenging spaces for example I've always loved the idea of a gallery wall but the way half our stairway is open it wasn't exactly conducive to a traditional staggered gallery wall set-up. I had seen these large chevron  picture frame projects a few times on blogs and Pinterest and I decided that the large size would be perfect to fill the space. Using paint I already had and 3 pre-cut boards from Lowes and some dollar store frames I got to work taping painting and sanding. I love how they turned out and I like the idea of switching out the photos like a rolling gallery .

If you're looking for a great tutorial for this project- I followed {this one}

Have a beautiful day!

Lucy is crushing on her gouache paints...

and this little guy is the source of a lot of crushes.
