Catie O’Keefe…get it? Like Georgia O’Keefe…

I was window shopping in a cute little boutique a few months ago and spotting an adorable painted wood frame. It was quite large and had beautiful saying writen on it with a small picture in the center. I wanted to get one for my, then pregnant, sister-in-law but was shocked to see the price – $275.00!! Don’t get me wrong – it was a beautiful peice of art but that seemed quite expensive! I thought to myself, I bet I could make that…

And now, several months later, I am attempting just that. I made our solarium into a make-shift art studio, (the empty room in the picture with the green chair…SIDENOTE: This pic when taken before we bought our house, the chair was there from the previous owner, but we asked that they include it in our contract! ) I bought a nice thick peice of pine, cut a small sqaure in the center, and sanded the thing. I spent the weekend painting it with a cute little saying. I am not finished yet, and i do not have a camera yet, so I can not show you a picture of it quite yet. But once I have a camera (I hope to at least borrow one soon) then i will put up pictures galore!
I have been having a lot of fun. Besides my pine picture frame, I also made a little sign, and I found an old chest in my parents garage that I am going to paint and write on as well. If I like the finished products, I think I may create my own Etsy.com shop and try to sell them!

  1. cates….how fun that we can communicate through our blogs now too:) if only you lived closer we could work together on our artistry!! I am doing a painting in the basement right now too (my art studio:)) and I think that we should both be required to paint something for one another and ship it to each other. It could be quite fun! I love you and cheers to creating beauty!abs
