Loving Lately: Painting

After my kiddos go to bed, I break out the two things I can’t have when they’re awake. Wine and paint. Lately, my creativity has been demanding that I paint things. And so I oblige. Here’s what I tackled last night.

Glass of wine + paint = my kind of night

My first Ikat-esque painting attempt

Almost finished

I got a few shots of the finished painting but I’m not convinced. This one will probably be shelved, but I love that I got to get some painting done. One thing I am loving is the color combo.

Kind of reminds me of this gorgeous pillow that I pinned as inspiration for a color palette:

  1. I love spraypaint!! It makes everything better:) My last project was buying two $5 baskets from Ikea and painting them pink then dipping them in gold at the bottom. I use them to hold all my daughter’s stuffed animals.
