{Guest Series} The Best of Me-Southern Lovely

Welcome to the final Best of Me series guest!

Hello lovely friends of Vintage Gwen. I am excited to be here today!
Since I consider Jennifer a dear friend of mine, it is wonderful to be in her space today!

I'm Lindsay, from Southern Lovely. Over at my place you will find all sorts of DIY's, sewing, painting & lots of hot glue projects. It's kind of a little of this & that. :) I have a great time creating it all though.

When Jennifer explained her 'Best of Me' series, I had to think what I wanted to talk about. Then it hit me, as far as projects go, my favorite is our loft area. It's a place in our home where I go to breath & relax. I love this space, it definitely makes me happy.

It wasn't always like this though. We gave it a big makeover several months ago.

Started with this space..

Added the board & batten

Used this art piece as the inspiration for the color scheme.
The blues & yellows were the perfect combination for this space.

And this is it!
The space I love.
The best of me. :)

So I'd love to know what space makes you happy?

Thanks so much for having me, Jennifer!

Wasn't that great inspiration? I tell ya, Lindsay has such a sense of effortless to her projects that I love!
As you already know she is behind our awesome Wednesday link party, Show & Share.  I'm so honored to be one of her partners, it's been amazing! Thanks my friend!!

And thanks to all of my guests, I so appreciate you lovelies helping me out during our move!

Happy Thursday!
