We love how this turned out for one of our customers!

There are so many possibilities and ways to spice up a nursery 
with our large line of wall decals.
Many of these were designed with a little one in mind:

Pops of color with Pom Poms!

Some of the goodies Adonna brought with her were these fun pom poms.

Here is a great tutorial from Creature Comforts blog on how to make these pom poms yourself:

It's amazing how much such a simple thing can add 
so much color and pop!

Sweet curtains

I am loving these sweet curtains Missy and Adonna created!

They add just the right touch to our shop.

Here's how to create these adorable, no-sew curtains:

**  Cut the burlap to your desired size in 2 panels per window.

**  Staple the burlap in pleats to the back of a thin board.

**  Drill the board into the wall or door.

**  Staple or hot glue cute burlap flowers in contrasting colors along the board.
--Missy twisted a small strip of burlap around itself into a round rosette and glued it in place.
--We wanted a splash of color so she spray painted ours.
--Then she accented the center with a vintage button.

 **  Add tie backs (ours are just strips of burlap).

I can not believe how cute these are,
how happy they make the space and
how quickly they were able to be made!
A win, win!

Wonderful Webster Staff

We could not be doing all we do without the help of our staff!

Introducing our Webster Groves Staff:
 Angela Kim and Missy Castro

 Both have been with us for almost a year now and what a difference they have made!
They started out helping in my basement and are so thrilled we have a new space (no spiders!).

We all worked hard to take the space from this:

To this!

An incredible transformation...
a lot of work but a lot of fun, too!

We came up with our own "shop rules" 
to help capture all we do:

Such an honor to work with such talented, amazing women!

Open House for studio in Webster Groves

We had so much fun at the official Open House for our new Webster Groves studio on Thursday!

The fun actually began on Monday when Adonna flew in from Spokane.  
She got to see our new space for the first time, 
add her special touches, and celebrate with us.

 It is hard to believe this crazy adventure began eight and a half years ago with the two of us
just trying to save some barn wood from my childhood farm.

It's been a wild ride 
and we're excited to see where this new space leads us.

New studio location in Webster Groves! - Come visit us!

Our work space in my basement had been getting a little overcrowded
and inefficient.

Yes, that is probably the understatement of the year.
It became evident that a move was needed.  
Right before Christmas I happened to drive by this small row of shops on Marshall Avenue in Webster Groves and actually saw a rent sign posted!  
This quaint little row has always had a draw for me
and I was excited to take a look.
Well, the shop space was perfect for our needs.  
It had great basement storage for our reclaimed materials
and space to have separate creating areas,
one for the wall graphics and one for our up-cycled products.
The extra bonus was this
 cute little backyard space we can use for our sanding and spray painting.
We have spent the last several months setting up shop.
 We would love to have you visit our new space!
We will be having an Open House Thursday, April 11th,
from 12 pm to 8 pm.
739 Marshall Ave., Webster Groves, MO  63119

We hope to see you many of you there!
