I can't stop. I can't stop dreaming about DIY projects, I can't stop rearranging... Life feels full right now. So happy to have a place I can finally call home on Seattle. Here's what I've been up to all last week... Before the hub's been trying to snap photos along the way to document the transformation (really this is his way of helping- as he sits on the other side of the living room watching Monday night football!- ha.- And an "After" picture below...

Misc. Creations!, mixed media art, painting, Paintings, Personal -

I've been trying to help my Mom accessorize her house. Lots of empty walls to fill. tackled this empty wall space above first. We bought these metal panels at a nearby Ross store, then I picked up a handful of acrylic paints at Walmart and did some abstract painting to pull the colors from her new sofa into the kitchenette area.

I mixed a few colors out...
