a few months ago i was walking around my sister-in-law’s new house for the first time, oohing and aaahing at how she’s made her home beautiful and very her. the last room she took me into was her master bedroom and i gasped! on the wall was this old window in the most beautiful shade of turquoise and she had filled the panes with random pieces of amy butler paper.
i knew i had to do this, too. i had a similar, but smaller window that i have used as a coat hanger for years, i think since i first got married. i painted the frame a similar turquiose and finally got to papering the panes tonight. oh. my. goodness. was that so much fun! i get so caught up in making things for business purposes and rarely do stuff for my home that i forget how gratifying a quick little project can be. it makes me want to be more purposeful about dedicating time to pursuing my design interests away from business things.
