I’ve said before that I love blogging because I get to chat DIY projects and home stuff with people who are equally jazzed about these themes. But sometimes blogging feels one sided. I show you this and that and sometimes we connect through comments (which always makes my day), but I know from my stats there are oodles of you who drop by the townhouse, and quietly check out what’s new. Hi there! I want you to know that I’m so happy you stop by.
I hope you don’t mind, but I do think it’s fun when Dans le Townhouse becomes slightly less about me and my blah blah blah, and more about you! That’s why I share other DIYs from time to time, and why I grin ear to ear when someone shoots me an email to say they tried a project of mine and “look how awesome it turned out”. After much deserved kudos, I practically pounce on the DIYer in question and anxiously ask, “Can I share this on the blog, PUH-leeze?????” If this were done in person, I would likely frighten them away with my over-zealousness (think crazy eyes and maybe some drooling). Happily, the internet protects you from my lack of social graces. But enough about me.
Today’s an awesome “less-about-me, more-about-you” kinda day. Monday I promised to share a reader’s take on the black and white painting I shamelessly copied, and here’s Jae’s version! You can catch more on her blog, Design OCD.
Isn’t it cool? I love her styling – the painting above that striped bench looks super fresh and modern. To jog your memory, here’s “my” version but, truthfully . . .
|P.S. We made a frame for it since . . . see here!|
. . . I copied this one. Not super well, mind you, but it’s important to clarify the idea isn’t mine.
Remember Erin’s cool spin on this painting? It turned out so pretty and so “her”. When Beth took a stab at it, her creativity took off and she created something totally unique. DIY art makes me happy. So, what have you been up to (she says with crazy eyes).
