    Hey there! I'm Amanda and I'll be your co-pilot today. Along with my handy husband, Ben, we're remodeling our second house. We're avid DIY-ers, tackling large and small projects while raising two rambunctious boys. Thanks for following along on this wild journey!

    My orchid has rebloomed, but I don't remember it being this color. That's how long I've had to keep this dang thing alive to see it pretty again. @thehouseoffigs asked me #widn  a week ago, that I somehow didn't see until today. I just came inside from watering my freshly planted flowers. A white butterfly bush, a few different coreopsis, ajuga, to name a few. I couldn't resist a good sale, and I'm still dying to cover the entire 'yard' with plants, but it my have been a bad idea to plant during this hot, dry week. ☀️🔥Fingers super crossed I can keep these alive. 😁🙏🏻🍀 Looking for a specific size picture frame? Don't worry about spending an arm and a leg on the perfect custom design, DIY with basic pine boards. Tutorial on the blog right now.

Star Gazing

I’m a big fan of personalized his and hers art above beds.  At our last house, we hung home state watercolor paintings above the bed.

Poppy and Pinecone Art Above Bed

Unfortunately, they were a little too wide to hang above our current bed.  Those pretty paintings now hang in our family room, so I made two constellations cut outs.

Constellations Above Bed

 

Ours are cut from black and mounted to metallic silver paper, then framed in an 11 by 14 inch frame with white mat.

Constellations Above Bed Ben's Side

Ben’s Scorpio is intricate, while my Aries is simple, consisting of only four stars.

Constellations Above Bed My Side

But this (and another comment) got be thinking about his and hers art for beds.  What do you have above your bed?  One large item?  Two or three smaller frames?  Monograms?

    The master is always the last to be done for me, so ours is a work in progress. There’s hardly anything on the walls yet. I just love that wall color in your room! So pretty!

    • Hi Avilynn!

      That’s kind of how we’ve been, too. That blue was from the previous owner. It looks brighter in person, so we’re planning to repaint it a deep blue or green color. But we’ve got to scrape the popcorn off the ceiling first. :(

      Thanks!
      Amanda
