The Urban Plains Project

I'm sure you all know the fabulous Mary from Urban Farmgirl....well I've had the pleasure of getting to know her better over the last year....and I've come to the conclusion....that she's my long lost twin sister....or at least if I could have a sister...I'd choose her.

While talking one day....she mentioned she was going to re-do her guest bedroom....and she thought it would be fun if we did it together....never mind the fact the we've never "met" or that we live 422 miles from each other. I was so on board to help....I love me a makeover.

Are you wondering where the title of this post fits in....well I've dubbed our collaboration....The Urban Plains Project...you know....a little bit her...a little bit me.

So....on to some inspiration....

Here are some of Mary's inspirations....

there's gonna be some cool elements in the room....

can you guess....

all photos via, except #1 is unkown

what it is?


So....now that you know what we're doing...how do you want us to do this...


do you guys want to see sneek peeks of our progress....


or wait and build up to one big reveal...what do you think.


I'm so excited to be doing this project with Mary....I so wish I could be there in person...gettin' paint in my hair....and all the other fun that comes with putting a room together....but I'll settle for helping long distance.


This should be great fun....so when do we start....


Now!
