A big hello to all you fabulous readers of Life as a Thrifter.
I'm Jen from Bungalov and SO excited to be here! I've been a long time admirer of Holly's work so this is just the icing on the cake! And as a new momma who recently welcomed a second baby myself, I know how the first weeks are such an adjustment. I am happy to help in any way I can!
Oh, and here I am. I always feel it helps to put a face to the name!
Now, for why I'm here. I too am a girl who repurposes and upcycles. For my sweet Annie who was born this past July I filled her room with vintage and repurposed items.
My fav is the barn wood sign I made and hung over her bed. There is not a better way for my princess to wake up.
This was my inspriration.
I LOVed how the sun looked but I did not want any words. Only the image. The sun in all its glory.
I first used some barn wood from our family farm. My Mr. put them together and created a canvas for me to work on.
Tracing the image with chalk and painting it with a bright yellow paint on hand I came to this.
I LOVe the rusticness. How the barn wood peaks though the paint. And how it all fits in so nicely in Annie's nursery. Best of all...it is from me!
To see more about my sun I hope you'd come on by here and follow along!
