For a long time I have felt uncomfortable about potentially giving off the impression that my home or my everyday life looks like the pictures in my posts. I have two energetic young kiddos and we are messy most of the time. We are living here… it’s certainly not perfect.
Typically I clear away a lovely little 4′ x 4′ space and stage the most beautiful (AND CLEAN) little spot for my blog pictures. Ready? No more pretending, this is a quick glimpse into how it is really going down in my house.
I plan to occasionally share the “behind the scenes”, as well as #projectFAIL photos here. It’s just the crazy normal life behind the camera!
Enjoy my mess, friends.
Apricot Jam: I cleared away a spot in my kitchen where my laptop normally sits. The lighting was great and you never knew I had clothes piled up and an ironing board, stool and all kinds of random things sitting around.
How to Make Inexpensive CLAY KNOBS! : The sun was starting to set and I searched the house for the best natural light to stage and photograph my new Clay knobs. And the best spot was on the trash can by our sliding glass door. Sometimes, I can’t believe how easy it would be for you to think I’ve got it all together. People. I took these lovely photos sitting on top of a trash can! Keeping it real.
How to Update an Old Tree Stump Table : I had the HARDEST time deciding what to paint this table. I started off thinking gold all around. Then, decided to try a white edge and natural legs and table top but didn’t like it. Then, I thought this table would look so stunning with a gold edge and white legs, but the gold color seemed to really clash with the orangey top. So, then I let it dry and then tried a black edge. That was way way worse! So then I had to do a primer spray paint over the intense black and then went back to the original white. This simple little project turned into five different paint combinations before I was happy with it, oy.
