DIY Projects are always going on in my home. Whether it is a piece of furniture I am flipping, decor I am upcycling, or a wall I am painting I am always enjoying what I am doing. I think DIY is so much fun and I love setting the scene when I start a project. Recently, I started painting a cabinet that one of my friends gave to me to paint for her. She got it on sale and was super excited to add it to her very empty hallway! It was a simple cabinet and she decided she wanted it to get a coastal makeover. I love that people think of me for DIY projects like this one! I don’t mind spending time immersed in creative DIY projects as long as I can make my surroundings reflect a certain ambiance. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not working with power tools for this project. I am only painting a cabinet.
For the creative haven for this project, I like to include 2 things:
Wine – More specifically, I am seriously head over heels for Santa Margherita Wines and their Pinot Grigio! This Italian wine is so refreshing and really is perfect for any occasion.
Music and/or a good audiobook! I am currently obsessed and fully immersed in the Outlander series.
That actually sounds like the perfect evening in my opinion. Am I right?
No matter if I am at home working on a project or hanging with my girlfriends for a ladies night, I can be myself and enjoy the Santa Margherita Wines experience every time.
On this specific occasion, a night IN was just the answer.
I like being able to fully immerse my focus and attention in a project.
I made a whole evening of it!
I like to keep my creative process light and fun. No rules. I was elated to pull out my paints, brushes, waxes, and wine! I guess you could almost say this is a form of meditation for me. After a fun evening, I was so pleased with how this coastal cabinet turned out! I think my friend will also love it! Once again a good book and good wine helped me create another beautiful piece to add to my portfolio. What do you think of this coastal cabinet? Do you like how it turned out? Do you have any rituals when working on painting DIY projects at your home? Let me know in the comments below.
