I believe you can use this product in bathrooms too, just check with the manufacturer of the paint (or call the site help number where I bought the paint) to be sure :) Laura
Looks great, what a good idea! Laura :)
No, I did a floor paint on that job (I think it was from the home depot) but I did have to do a lot of the same steps like cleaning, priming, and painting. Give it a try! Laura :)
Thanks! I will do a full before and after, but it's not done yet! Laura :)
I believe you can use this product in bathrooms too (places that get wet) so I would give it a try! Laura ;)
Ha ha, I think it's an Obey top :) Laura
Hmm, if it's already painted I'm not sure if you would need to strip the paint off first or if you can sand and prime right over it. I would call the customer service at the site where I bought the paint and see what they recommend since it can vary from paint to paint! Good luck! Laura :)
I love a good transfer project. To me it almost feels like transfer techniques are part craft project and part science project. It's fun to watch your materials transform into something else, like transferring an ink jet printed photo onto fabric (in this case, a fabric journal). A few years ago I made this wood transfer of one of my wedding photos. You can see from my video home tour... Continue reading

I've been experimenting with whole wheat flours and alternative flours lately. Why? Well, to tell you the truth, over the past couple of months, I have been changing the way I eat. I'm trying to educate myself and make healthier choices. Which is a lifelong process, but as of late, I've been making some pretty big changes to my diet. It's been overall really, really positive and I'm loving the... Continue reading

If you've ever done a home renovation before, then you know how quickly the costs can add up. You think, "I'll just paint this wall," but then the new wall makes the trim look dingy, and the new trim makes the floor look worn, and the new floors should really have new rugs, and on and on it goes. The first thing we did when we moved into our new... Continue reading

Hey there! I've never heard of Swoonworthy, but I just took a look and it's really cute! I was with Laura when she was concepting this makeover and I can tell you 100% she didn't rip off another blogger. From time to time there are styles that get repeated (a LOT) and it's definitely a big year for brass and palm print, but I think it's really unfair to assume anything but the best on Laura's creative process. She's a great person and our whole team works very hard to always give credit when it is due. Thanks! Elsie
Thanks Kristin! xx- Elsie

I got the mold here: You should try them, just let them thaw a bit before pulling them out of the mold :) Laura
I got it here: You have to let them thaw a little before you can pull them out, but it works pretty well :) Laura
Hehe! Thank you! :))) -Elsie

Hey, friends! I thought I'd pop in and share some updates about our move (or lack thereof—I suppose). It's kind of a funny story. We found our new Nashville house in March, closed on it in May, and started renovating (well, painting mostly and getting quotes from contractors) the very next day. And then I blinked and summer was over, some of our rooms were still gutted and major work... Continue reading

Obsessed!!!!! If this is any hint at how your bedroom is going to look, I CANNOT WAIT! xx- Elsie
It's kind of a given that somewhere at some point in the moving process, a few items of yours will get broken or damaged. You could wrap everything in seven layers of bubble wrap and it will still happen. It's just one of the joys of moving. That being said, most of the furniture that went into the moving pod painted a light color had to be repainted once it... Continue reading
