what i’m loving this week

DIY framed canvas Art

I snagged some canvases on the cheap — a 5-pack for $10 — and painted some abstract shapes on them with leftover paint samples from my color palette for this room.

I built custom frames using 1”x2” lumber and mitered corners (cutting the corners to 45 degrees like a frame) I attached them to the canvas with a nail gun and some wood glue.

You can make this project with NO POWER TOOLS! Just use a miter box to cut your mitered corners and then use a hammer and nails instead of a nail gun to attach.

stuff we just need to talk about

i wallpapered my fridge!

A plain white fridge just wasn’t going to cut it for my studio space, so I added wallpaper and painted the handles to zuzsh it up.

I had seen this idea floating around Pinterest where someone used peel and stick wallpaper to add a pattern to their fridge, so I decided to try it with regular paste wallpaper.

A little nervous about using paste paper for the first time and unsure of whether it would stick to my fridge, I dove in and started measuring, cutting, spraying the back to activate the glue, and sticking it up.

To my surprise it stuck super well and was actually very easy to install since the wet paste allows you to slide it a little bit and reposition it if you don’t get it perfectly lined up.

I LOVE how it turned out, and so excited for all the possibilities for all of you that have reached out to say that you’re trying this with your basic white fridge too

let’s talk about it!
