MY SHOE WARDROBE (BEFORE & AFTER)

Earlier this week, me and my grandma re-did this old wardrobe, it is now my shoe closet. 
We painted the outside a gray chalk paint and the inside white. The white wasn't covering very well so I had to do several coats, and then changed paints to a different brand because it just wasn't working the way we wanted it to. 
 The next day after that dried, we put a stain on it. (black paint mixed with a dark wax) to get this old-timey affect. Which I really love, it looks great in my room! Then yesterday I buffed it out and now it's holding all of my shoes!


This is the before and after shot! If you want to see more posts like this, just comment below! I'm sure they'll be plenty more to come in the future!

A Beautiful Mess Photo App


A Beautiful Mess, is one of my favorite blogs that I follow. I love reading about the stuff their doing, and the pictures they post. I enjoy the DIY's and renovations that they do, and also the recipes! Who could forget those?

When they announced they were releasing a photo editing app I freaked! Being a photographer, I don't want to tote around my heavy dslr all the time, so I stick with my phone. And photo editing apps are a must have! (i'm not big on instagram filters)
Not only can you put filters on your pictures, but they've also hand written words, phrases and different borders and decor which is super cute!!

So I guess I should stop sounding like a infomercial and just let you guys check it out for yourself! (and no they don't know I'm doing this)

Happy Memorial Weekend!

Only Know You Love Her....



"Well you only need the light when it’s burning low.
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow.
Only know you love her when you let her go."

I spilled coffee on my keyboard...

Hello everybody!
I apologize for not have blogging for a while, but now I'm here! The other day I spilled coffee on my keyboard and now some buttons on my laptop aren't working! Which makes typing a little difficult... oh well.

 Some new photos for your enjoyment.

Oh How I Love My Roses!


We have three rose bushes in our back yard, and conveniently in three different colors. A really pretty medium pink, a white-ish yellow, and a really dark hot pink. They're all really pretty and make great pictures!

2. Yesterday morning, me Alex and our friend Avery from church, went to the college in Fort Smith and handed out coffee and donuts to all the college students for finals week. It was really fun, and the guys are going to do it again for the next couple of days.
