We’re on a Roll!

Happy Friday! Today, we’d like to share a little project that Ingrid created a few months ago.  On a warm winter’s eve (south Texas is home for us), she pinned the night away, finding some some super cool art made from toilet paper rolls.  Thus, the obsession began to create her own original piece.  We love scrolling through pins to get our creative juices flowing—what in the world did we do before pinterest!?!  Ingrid started collecting her toilet paper rolls until she had enough for her project.  She created these two canvas pieces with toilet paper rolls, acrylic paint, and some wooden sticks & buttons from the craft box.  The trusty painter’s tape helped create the stripes, and hot glue put it all together.  They hang side by side in her bedroom, and the color scheme blends perfectly with the decor.

As we are inspired by so many, we hope to pay it forward and do the same for others with our designs….have a lovely weekend!

Reinventing Rubbish

When it comes to making someone else’s trash into our treasures, we are definitely not shy.  Our city offers a “bulky trash pick up” once a year.  Creeping slowly through the neighborhood during this time makes us feel a little like Joe Pesci & Daniel Stern in Home Alone.  We’ve stumbled upon some great finds, including a neat suitcase (circa 1970) that still waits patiently for us in the garage.  This time, we discovered these adorable terracotta planters hiding underneath some old wood.  They definitely needed some work but we immediately saw the potential.  With a little sand paper, soapy water, and a brush, these planters have been given a second chance….terracotta pots 1
