spray painting project…one of many to come:)

Tanya List

Ok…..so it’s officially fall, and the snow is going to come most likely in the next month or two…….this means it’s time to spray paint my life away….i’ve tried to paint in the snow, and lets just say hopefully i will never ever have to do it again!

Here is my first project of many:)

Real wood frames from the Bracebridge Re-store 4@8=$32

Paint (random left overs from other projects)= about 10$ish worth of paint

One of my fave pics of super-model Coco-Rocha wearing a crown that myself and Becky from Blush & Bloom made while working at Pink Twig, featured in FLARE magazine circa 2010.

stump love

Tanya List

Ry and our friend Alex from Life Images Photography, cut down a GIANT (not-so-heathy) tree a few weeks back.  As soon as it was down, Tiff (Alex’s wife and my favourite design dreamer) started coming up with a million decor ideas that we could make out of the tree:)

This is the first of many to come (hopefully a whole outdoor living room will be crafted in the summer)………:)

 

This is super easy, all you need is a stump, drill, 3 wheels and some muscle:

stump=$no charge

wheels, 3@4.99(home depo)=$14.97

carpet, ecarpetgallery (a must visit for the decor obsessed)=$170.00

studio floors

As the studio is still finishing up…..professional pics to come:)  I thought i would share a few more before/afters.

First start with the combo:

1 coat “cloud white” paint diluted 1/2 & 1/2 with water + 1 coat “golden oak”stain + 3 coats of polyurethane

= cheap, cool, durable flooring

Rolling tool kit.  I have to give the credit to Ry on this one….he is the “tool man/macgyver”.  He said that i must have one, and damn he was right….look at my storage!  Plus it’s made ridiculously well!!  This was the splurge on the room, although regular price it would have been just shy of $1500, Canadian Tire has a one day sale…..we got itn%60 off!!

Before, boring tool kit:

After: amazing work bench.  I really wanted to get it professionally painted turquoise, but, for now it’s out of the budget. So for now i wrapped  some leftover grasscloth along the front to hide it’s black exterior.

Sconces before/after: i wonder how many cans of gold spray paint a girl can use??!??
