DIY Monogram Canvas Art

Happy Monday, Friends!

I hope your weekend was excellent! My husband really puts a damper on Friday by saying "don't get too excited, you're only 2 days away from Monday" :( What a sad way of looking at it! But it does explain why weekends fly the heck by. Am I the only one who wakes up on Sunday feeling like the weekend has already ended? Boo!

I'm so excited to share with you more master bedroom progress we worked on this weekend. The big reveal is only a week or two away...yay! Decorating this room has been expensive, ya'll. I'm glad its coming to an end. 

Once upon a time, on May 31st, 2014 we invited all our friends and family to witness the best day of our lives, our wedding day. I knew I wanted a unique guest book that we could save forever and look at daily, so a giant 2.5 foot monogram seemed ideal. Especially because i'm a firm believer that if it's not breathing, monogram it. (and there are some living exceptions) :)

This was such an easy project to throw together. I started with a GIANT canvas from Hobby Lobby, and spray painted it krylon brushed nickel in satin. It's the perfect mix between gold and silver, it showed up great on the canvas. 

It took 2 coats of paint, and then after letting it cure for 24 hours, I took a damp dishrag to it to remove any overspray or dust that seemed to have accumulated overnight.

Then it was easy! All I had to do was hot glue this baby on, and put her up on the wall :)

It was an easy weekend project that made a big impact in our room. I was doing my makeup this morning reading over the well wishes and it was a perfect way to start the week!

What'd you do for your wedding guest book? Do you still get the smiles when you read it over?

Thanks for coming by!

Until Next Time,

Makin' me Blush

Blouse: Old Navy // Black Jeans: Old Navy // Glasses: ZeroUV //  Bracelet Stack: Charlotte Russe (always) // Bar Necklace: Gifted- similar here //Ballet Flats: Fibi & Clo- Cordobo Blush c/o

Well Happy Friday you gorgeous gals!

I'm so excited the weekend is here once again, I think I say it every single Friday but DAMN weekends feel good! I'm actually going to take a 1/2 vacation day today to celebrate being so close to the holidays and the gorgeous weather we're being graced with here in NWA!

Have I mentioned before that I love Old Navy? I can't say enough about these rockstar jeans. They are so comfortable, almost like leggings, but they're soft denim material. I could LIVE in them! This top is also so soft and comfortable. It has a star print that I originally thought was polka dots when I bought it online, but the stars are sort of cute, so she stayed in my closet! I love how casual this outfit is with the half-tuck, but it could also be dressed up for work with some pumps and a full tuck :)

Can we take a minute to talk about these cute flats?! Fibi & Clo were sweet enough to send me a pair and I have been living in them! They are literally so comfortable. For the price point, these flats seem so much higher-end than they are. They come packaged in a dust bag, with complimentary heel guards, and some extra rhinestones should you ever have any fall out. Talk about amazing customer service! Right now, if you visit www.fibiandclo.com/stephanieslack , you can also pick up their Daisy Sandal and for each purchase, they will donate $10.00 to breast cancer research. Doing your part to help save the world while wearing cute shoes?! Count me in.

I'm off to go finish up my work day, I hope you ladies have the best weekend ever. 7 days until Halloween- get excited!
