Last year I partnered up with Sherwin-Williams to create a paint dipped + yellow themed project for their National Painting Week campaign. What project was that again? Here it is. Right over here.
Recently I’ve started to aggressively worry over random finishing details around the house like art and planters; probably since those things feel more manageable than say gutting and remodeling our awful bathrooms. So for this years SWNPW project I’ve been thinking about color details and unexpected product combos that make things that look great but are way more affordable than updating the kitchen or doing the landscaping.
Oh, you silly endless remodeling projects. How you haunt me.
Thursday I’ll post a couple DIY and orange themed ideas that might include something like *DIYing an architectural pottery style planter to replace the vintage planter + giant cactus stolen from your front porch (*Previewed and pictured above in some early experimental stage of ‘what if I added this to that and it did that or something’).
More details + more DIY later this week, yo.

A sampling of some recent landscape-ish images from my pinterest and my other blog (that tumblr one) which actually gets updated and is somehow GOOP approved. Why landscape-ish? I’ve been feeling guilty about the general lack of landscaping progress at the house as well as my general lack of blogging on this blog. Also been filled with shame by the knee high weeds which have taken over most of our property. Today two separate garden entrepreneurs stopped by with their lawn mowers and offered to mow down the weeds for $5.
Things have gotten pretty bad.
Landscaping? Next year? Here be some fire to light under some ass.
