Summer "Art" Ideas

**Hey you, yes you, did you know you can win a $25 Target gift card from me.  It is easy--just follow me either here, on Facebook, or on Pinterest (or all three for 3 entries) and leave me a comment HERE letting me know.  A winner will be drawn on Wednesday!!

As I enjoyed my first mojito of the season on the front porch this past weekend, I declared summer is here.  Now, let me tell you, this is early for us northerners and a bit of a surprise. Memorial Day weekend is typically rainy with snow flurries--this weekend we turned the AC on. And while I enjoy all of the seasons, I am thrilled and ready summer is upon us. 

I hope you are happily anticipating and enjoying summer as well.  I thought I would share a few past summer inspired ideas for your walls.  These are all easy ideas that can be used in your home, on your front door or porch.  Let me know if you try one--I love hearing you were inspired!

For my family summer and bike riding go hand in hand, and this easy reclaimed bike art is a fun symbol of that.

Speaking of the 4th, how about creating a reclaimed wood flag?

In Montana, summer means fishing for trout.  A rainbow fish is a fun interpretation of that.

Summertime, the living is easy and fun.  Let your "art" reflect that--keep it simple and bright, something that makes you smile.

  10. So I only have the blog to enter by but I left a comment on previous post. Do I need to leave any other info? Your blog amazingly inspires me. I love to repurpose. I'm working on a little night stand right now that I put a new top & bottom shelf on. I got the cutest knob at Hobby Lobby for it.
