Barnhouse Art Studio |Garden Wallpaper & No-Tool DIY Peg Rail

DIY PROJECT

My Art Studio transformation is done, and I couldn’t be more in love! If you were thinking “Hey, I think I know this space!” — You’d be right! This little nook is one of my favorite spaces to play, and it’s seen several makeovers over the last few months. First, I did a fun sponge faux wall treatment, check it out here. When Little Yolo came along we tried the space as an adorable reading nook with a petal stamp wall. Now, this space is my own little studio where I can unplug and be creative. The best part: I used my favorite wallpaper from my collection with Chasing Paper on the wall. This pattern is called Garden, and I went with the Green colorway to bring Spring life into our home.

INSPIRATION

If you’ve been here awhile, you know I love to thrift! I was looking through some old books and found an aerial blueprint of a flower garden from 1876. I cut out the garden and started playing around with duplicating it and creating a pattern. If you look closely, you can see the bushes and stairs in the print. From further away it creates a pattern that feels like a neutral backdrop. I knew that this would be a really pretty backdrop for my landscape art.

I just love having a secret garden on my walls, it was one of my favorite books growing up! I can’t wait to share it with Little Yolo.

It comes in two colors: Green and Gray. Can’t decide between the two? Why not try both! I used the green in my studio, and I am planning on using the lighter gray version in the Bungalow Kitchen, stay tuned!

Super Easy No-Tool DIY Peg Rail

I’ve been so excited to see the Peg Rail trend take off (we have them all over our houses) and decided it was the perfect solution for functional and beautiful storage for supplies in this space.
Here’s the tutorial for this quick Saturday morning project:

Paint a 1×4 the color of your trim
Mark the center of the board, and the spacing of the pegs
Screw in the peg by hand! Yes, I found these screw in pegs, and they are a gamechanger for a creating a peg rail in without tools!
NOTE: I would just use these for peg rails that you plan on hanging lighter items. Check my DIY peg rail tutorial if you want to hang heavier items!
Level the peg rail and hang on the wall by screwing it into studs.

My Landscapes

Lately I’ve been so inspired by our family hikes that I decided to dive into painting. I’m still a beginner but I’m so excited to keep creating up here. I posted my painting starter kit a while back, and they are still my favorite supplies!

DIY Pleated Shade Pendant

I made a DIY pleated shade a this winter, and think they are just so charming, so I made another for my art studio. This time, I got an accordion sconce and mounted it to the side wall. I used a rope cord to compliment the jute rug and finished it with an Edison bulb to add a warm glow.

The Sample Kit

The full collection is launching on April 28th, but if you are ready to plan your Spring makeovers, pick up a sample kit! This sample pack includes all thirteen colorways from the collection all inspired by Spring in the Midwest.  

Check out the full post on the Fresh Cut wallpaper print, and more from the collection is to come!
