One Room at a Time

Before we moved into our new house, I decided to paint a few rooms to make them feel like “us”. So much of the house is a work-in-progress (hello future kitchen and bathroom remodel), but I wanted to have a space in our house to go to that I loved when everything else felt undone and incomplete.

Basically, I need pretty spaces or I go a little bit crazy.

Enter the family room.fr1

Here is what it looked like when we first saw it…frbefore

It really didn’t need a lot of work compared to the rest of the house. I painted the stained trim (five coats!) in Simply White by Benjamin Moore and the walls are now BM Gray Owl, the same as our previous house.fr3fr6fr11

The paint freshened up the space and made it feel a lot lighter. And you know I’m all about LIGHT and BRIGHT.fr5fr7fr4

The stone fireplace wouldn’t be my first choice, and I had a little bit of angst about it in the beginning, but it’s starting to grow on me. It’s a lot of brown for me. But it’s going to be beautiful at Christmastime.fr13fr14fr10The floors were in amazing shape, which was awesome. I finished hanging artwork and did some decorating this week. It’s still not totally done, but I wanted to show you how the space is shaping up.

Scribble Pretty Collaboration

I’ve collaborated with my friend and hand-letterer Steph who recently opened up an Etsy shop called “Scribble Pretty”. We have a few new signs in the shop that feature her hand-lettered designs.Beautiful new day wood sign by Aimee Weaver Designs

It’s once again time for a mindless blog post where I share what’s happening in my life currently…

LOOKING FORWARD TO // this weekend and an actual date night on the calendar. This hasn’t happened for many months and is much-needed.

LISTENING TO // The Piano Guys on Pandora. Because when my head is spinning with so many things to work on, I need background music that settles me down.

TRYING TO // take care of myself. My life is so busy right now with taking care of four kids, a new house, and a busy season with the shop, so I usually (always) put myself on the back burner. This video is a good reminder that I have a responsibility to make myself a priority.

WORKING ON // some new products for the shop! Teaser…it’s not signs! Stay tuned.

ENJOYING // my new studio. It has big windows and the light is just glorious compared to my old studio. I love

USING // Uni-ball Signo pens in medium point. I go through a ton of these and they are my favorite pens.

GETTING USED TO // driving all the time. Because we now live farther away from things (family, friends, stores, school), I feel like I’m constantly in the car. On the positive side, we live in a BEAUTIFUL countryside, and it always inspires me to watch the landscape go

NEEDING TO // paint more rooms in the house. The entire upstairs needs to be painted, and I just can’t seem to squeeze in the time. Although this week I did do some decorating and hung curtains in the family room. Progress! I’ll share more details on that room soon.

WEARING // these rain boots. Almost constantly. I feel like such a farm girl.

Have a great weekend friends!

Animal hutch storage solution


If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time, you know how I love to turn junk into something usable and pretty. Since we moved into our new house last week, I’ve been needing more storage solutions for the kiddo’s toys. We had a corner of our mudroom that I turned into a little play area for the kids and needed furniture to store their things.

Randomly, a few weeks ago I saw this old animal hutch at a barn sale and bought it on a whim. It confounded my husband that I actually paid money for it. You would probably have agreed if you had seen it in its original state…chalkboard before

But I saw the potential in its metal cages and big old casters. I took it all apart and cleaned it thoroughly. It was used for animals, so needless to say, it was dirty and smelly. I had some metallic spray paint on hand, and I sprayed the metal parts.

Then I stained the wood sides a darker brown to make it look more finished. Of course, I also had to make some numbered labels for the cages. I used pieces of cardboard that I cut to size and painted black, then painted the numbers on. Free + easy.

I had canvas bins that fit perfectly in the cages, and it now holds a bunch of toys.

It has been so much fun working on furniture for the new house. There is something so rewarding about giving these old, tired pieces a brand new look! I’m also loving that over-sized chalkboard! It’s perfect for the mudroom. If you want one for yourself, they are available in my website here.

In the studio this morning {it’s a mess}

We are still settling into the new house, and the studio is especially a work-in-progress. We still need to get it set up, but in the meantime, I still have work to do, so I’m working in the midst of the mess. And it’s a beautiful mess, if you ask me.studio4 studio5

The room where we’ve put the studio was a large bedroom at the back of the house. It is in an ideal location with AMAZING large windows that look out into our backyard and the natural light pours in there all day long. The space makes me so happy!

Happy Friday friends!
