Happy New Year! I'm entering into my 7th year of blogging here. Crazy. This blog has provided me a lot of business and has been a really great creative outlet. Thanks for coming back and reading every day! I thought I would do a recap of my year in business (as documented through the blog).
In January of 2014, I painted our kitchen cabinets.
I loved this project. I still want to add trim around the edges to create a Shaker style, but I'm not sure Jordan's on board, so for now I continue to enjoy the white cabinets.
In January I also did the band cover art drawings for a doctor's office down in Tampa. It was a really cool project, if I do say so myself.
In February, I painted my bedroom peach! Weird color, but I loved it.
it was "peach cooler" by Benjamin Moore.
In March, I turned regular ol' panel curtains from World Market into pinch pleat curtains. It was my first time teaching myself this trick, and I was really proud.
(now I'm thinking I should hang these again for the Winter!)
I also ended up making some for our kitchen:
In April, I transformed a dark playroom into a Dr. Seuss inspired bold bright space for the kids to reclaim:
I also ended up doing a bunch of work in our backyard with Jordan in April. I wish it still looked like this!!
it looks terrible again, with all the rain and cold weather. I will be excited to attack it again this spring.
I did a fun mural in May for the Kredible offices, here in Atlanta.
In June, I decided to draw on our powder bathroom walls. I drew pineapples in gold with peach and cream highlights.
In July, I turned two $10 Target end tables turned into a leather bench!
In September, I did some fun transformations to my studio:
in October, I finally bought a new rug and coffee table for the living room. I love them!
and in October I took on painting this star and dot stenciled ceiling:
My eyes cross just thinking about it ;)
In November, I did the BLACK + DECKER Big Finish. I will post pics from the final results from it tomorrow. I am SO happy with how that bathroom turned out.
In December, I painted three big murals at an apartment complex here in Atlanta. I will be sharing pics of them soon, I promise!
Anyway, it's been a good year, and I look forward to doing so much more in 2015, including more design work. I was actually asked to help out with season 4 of Elbow Room on HGTV, so I am joining their team as a designer starting soon. I will STILL BE TAKING ON PAINTING/DESIGN PROJECTS, and doing my current gig as well. It'll be fun, and I'm looking forward to the challenge of something new that I haven't done before. If you remember, I was on the show painting a mural in January of 2013, and that's when I met everyone there.
What about you guys? How was your year? Looking forward to a new slate in 2015?
Happy new year to you all. Now I'm off to take pictures of my guest bathroom before I head out to paint, so I can show you guys my counter top tomorrow!
