Beach Weekend & Personalized Bedroom Art

Last week Ryan and I fled the city for a relaxing long weekend at Virginia Beach.  No computers, no cell phones, no blackberries.  It was refreshing – I didn’t think about the blog, didn’t worry about my ever growing list of DIY projects, or anything related to our jobs or hobbies.  We just completely disconnected.

I did, however, work on our bedroom redesign project in a way. . . when one morning I awoke to enjoy the sunrise.  Inspired by the photography in this Etsy shop,  I took a crack at making some personalized art for use in our bedroom makeover.

I’m not sure which photo(s) I’ll use, but here are my options:






I’m leaning towards photo 4 or photo 5, but haven’t made up my mind yet.  Either way, I’m super excited to be able to hang such a personalized photo in our space!

The sunrise made for some amazing photography opportunities that morning.  You can check out more photos, and read about my trip, over here.

    I LOVE #2. May steal your idea next time we make it to the beach. And I do not believe that you didn’t think about your blog. I think that’s a lie 🙂 Wish I could disconnect for a few days. Love you!

    I’m leaning towards number 1. I like the lighting and the simplicity.

    I swear to goodness, I truly did NOT think about blogging, projects or anything else. I was SO worn out, because it’s usually always on my mind, that I just left it behind in Northern Virginia for the trip. Don’t get me wrong, I love blogging and all my projects, but some times you just need a break.

    Doing a little catching up here–these are amazing photos! I love #2 b/c of the light, the richness of colors, the angle and the waves. Will go awesome with the new bedroom!

    #2 is my favorite, hands-down!!! LOVE the idea! Wish I could get my butt out of bed that early at the beach!

    […] so I finally got our personalized wall art hung in our bedroom.  Remember how I’d created personalized photos when I watched the sun rise on our beach […]
