Fun Roadtrip Finds

Last weekend we took the annual family vacation to the River with The Husbands Family. We floated, sunned, ate, and of course did some shopping. Everywhere we go I am inspired by design so I thought I would share some of my finds with you guys:

On Saturday we stopped by a little craft fair and I ran across a vendor booth that had some really cool ceiling tile art. I am obsessed with ceiling tiles and got some good ideas for projects I can work on myself. One of my favorite things are these wall hanging picture frames. They come in a ton of different designs and color combinations. You can check out their website at

We also hit up my favorite outlet mall with the Pottery Barn Outlet. I just can't seem to drive by without stopping - you never know what they are going to have! They have a huge section of baby and kids items and I really liked this dresser - perfect for a bedroom or playroom. I love the way the drawer fronts are painted a contrast color. This is something you can easily do on your own with an old dresser you already have. Just sand, prime and paint the drawer fronts for a whole new look. You can even to multiple colors.

Lastly, I thought this flower picture was super cute and simple. I like the extra tall shape of the canvas. It would look great combined with a few other sizes to create one big design. This is something basic you could easily paint yourself.

I also saw some pretty tin wall crosses but when I went back to get one, the booth was closed. I want to start collecting crosses from different places we visit and hanging them all together but I just can't figure out which wall I want to put them on. Believe it or not, I am pretty indecisive with wall art and most of the walls in our house are blank!
