Floor treatment inspiration

My new studio space has wonderful wood flooring. Two rooms are a beautiful herringbone pattern and the other is plain vertical planking. I’m ACHING to paint on some black and white diamonds like this party scene on the plain planking and then keep the integrity of the herringbone with a wonderful stain. What do you think? Have you ever done either? Any tips?

Tucked away

Still working through these Iceland photos. What do you think so far? Nuts, right? Paul and I rented a car for a few days and drove across the island. We stopped periodically to capture the houses built into mountains*. I’m guessing this technique came to be because it’s so (so so so so so so so) windy and the rock is at least one solid fortification. 
*kind of reminded me of that rock house in Laguna Beach. You know what I’m talking about OCers?

Kissing clothespin magnet

I did a version of my wedding couple clothespin (originally on Brooklyn Bride) for Chalkboard Mag, but this time I turned into…drumroll please….a magnet. *GASP*. I know, contain yourself. 
Materials: oversize clothespin, acrylic paints, paintbrush, pencil, magnet strip, double sided tape or glue, scissors.
Step 1: Create the outfit outlines of the couple’s clothing with your pencil. (I based her outfit off of Lauren Moffat‘s fall 2012 line)
Step 2: Paint in the outfits with your acrylics.

Step 3: Cut a strip of magnet and use double sided tape or glue to attach it to the clothespin.

Voila! 
I mostly wanted to find a way to find a practical use for this clothespin rather than just have it sitting on my bookshelf so I thought the fridge would be a much better place for it. Plus, you get a little peek into the chalkboard cupboard that I painted in our kitchen. 
As always, photography by Hilda Grahnat
