Silver Lining: The Power of Work

June 6, 2012

The Power of Work

Working together as a couple has a lot of power. When two people work together, they grow closer together, practice teamwork and problem-solving, and learn how to complement each other's personalities. The result is a product or experience that is unique and meaningful to just the two of you.

When my best friend/sister got married, her and her husband worked together to create a lamp from scratch. He did the electrical wiring, and she assembled shards of a mirror to reflect the bulb's light {I wish I had a picture to show off their creativity! It was really awesome.}

While Sam and I probably don't have the creativity to start completely from scratch, we do want to make something together this summer. I'm looking for ideas for something to hang above the headboard in our bedroom.

Here's what I've been playing around with:



dream catcher

block letters

melted crayon art above our bed? would that be too... young?

repurposed shutters

Your opinions? Ideas? Have you created something cool?

Regardless of what we choose, it will be fun to make memories together and produce something beautiful for the lovenest. I love working on projects with the Mister.

P.S. We're also building a rocket together. Way cool, right? More details to come!

  10. That flower canvas is amazing! I don't know if my husband and I would have the patience to work on such an intricate project together... because, let's be honest, I barely have the patience for DIY projects, even if I'm by myself. But I love the ones you posted!!!
