DIY Triangle Patterned Door

Well, everyday I feel more and more like an official blogger. The studio is really changing the game for me.  I'm LOVING it.  Not only is it a great place to work and shoot my pics, but my home feels soooo much bigger. Getting all of my craft "crap" out of all of our closets and corners of our house was so freeing.  I love being able to shut the door of the studio and not have to look at my half-finished projects all evening long.  I still edit pics and write posts at home, but the messy part of the blog is houses at the studio.

Olivia still thinks it's fun to go to the studio and today she spend a couple hours cutting and gluing works of art. A friend of ours asked her last night what she was thinking when she was making these pieces, and she replied without a pause, "I wasn't thinking I was just making."  A girl after my own heart.  Makers Gotta Make!

This weekend Lon helped me give the studio a fresh coat of white paint.  I also decided the door from the office room to the larger work room need some Oleander + Palm personalizing.  All the cool kids and "real" bloggers have fun and creative doors.  I wanted something that was really O+P. So, I chose to paint the door a pretty grey and add triangles to it.  I used gold vinyl and the faux marble contact paper that I also used on the DIY Marble Shamrock Print I created.

I used my trusty Cricut Explore machine to cut out these faux marble and gold triangles in no time at all. Vinyl is magic. It's so much easier then painting and I decided my landlord might appreciate the triangles being just vinyl and 100% removable. I placed them on the door in two rows.  I chose to arrange these in a random order, kind of like the wooden tray I recently made.  The studio has all white walls, so I think this makes the space a lot more interesting and hopefully it's very O+Pish.  

The Cricut Explore has gotten even better with the new Cricut Explore Air. This new machine features built-in Bluetooth® for wireless cutting, a dual carriage to cut and write in just one step, and free cloud-based design software for computer and iPad.
