the story of us

i’ve proclaimed it on instagram + facebook, and i’ll say it again here…this latest custom order that i had the honor of making and delivering last weekend was the reason why i started re-nest studio. making your home yours with personalization and your story is what drives me + brings me so much joy!

back in november, i met a lovely mom + wife at the washington street holiday market in naperville. she had an idea that she wanted to bring to life for her husband as a special gift. the whole idea was to take the special places, moments, and dates in their life and transform them into a subway art style canvas. oh, and did i mention how big the canvas was? we went big….the 24″ x 30″ gallery wrapped canvas from michaels which was perfect size! 

since this was such a fun and different order, i also decided i wanted to take my instagram followers through the maker process with me. (if you’d like to see the step-by-step, head over to my instagram account and check it out!)

while i was making this, i’d be lying if i said i wasn’t already trying to plan out our own story of us canvas for the re-nest house. (yes, i started a list of places, dates, and meaningful words that mean something to our story!) keep watching because i already have a space picked out where ours will hang. 

want to see the final look? 🙂 

isn’t this just the best? i can’t wait to have
ours ready for our house!

tell me: what color combo would look best in your house? and, don’t forget if you want to see the whole process to head over to my instagram account and see how this great piece came to life!
