A Touch of Vintage & Glam - Laundry Room Upgrade

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

Friends, I have some fabulousness to share with you today!

A while back, I received the loveliest email from an extremely talented artist.  The email was really and truly one of the nicest emails I have ever received as a blogger and I would have hugged Ashley if I could have.

Not only was the email full of kindness, she also generously offered me a few of her amazing prints and I could have been any more excited to add her amazing work to our home!

I have to admit, it's taken me a while to hang the prints up (I'm sorry Ashley!!!), as embarrassing as that is, they have both found a home and I'm pretty thrilled with how they look.  Of course I have to share some pics!

I had been searching for a print to place on my bedside table.  The minute I saw this one, I knew it was perfect!  I am still however, searching for the perfect frame:


The second print I chose, well, you'll know why I chose it when you see it. I die!  It's so good:

This lovely ended up in our laundry room.  Gah, I know, but it's not as bad as it sounds.  You can see the print from the hallway when you walk past the laundry room, so she'll be seen often.  And honestly, what's better than a touch of vintage and glam in one's laundry room?!

You can see more of Ashley's amazing work here.

The vintage frame? You want to know more. Well, I will tell you then.  Believe it or not, this was a curb-side pick up.  Yeah, totally true.  My mother in law spotted it at the end of her neighbours driveway and couldn't leave it.  I'm so glad she didn't.  A little spray paint and tada, perfect frame in a frame frame!

You can easily find one for yourself.  Check your local vintage store or thrift shop, they often have a good selection of frames just waiting for a project like this.

Cheers,
