Last night I was fortunate enough to meet up with my favorite ladies of the Columbia South Carolina Mommy Blogger Tribe at our monthly event. We were hosted at AR Workshop Lexington and we had a (sand)blast!
This place is such a gem hosting a workshop right in the heart of Lexington and another down town Columbia, South Carolina. It was challenging before we even got there because I wood literally do every project they have to offer and fill my home with beautiful, hand crafted decor! But, I chose to go with a Welcome Porch Sign that I have been wanting for so, so long.
After sanding, just like any wood project, you must pick a stain color, you could pick a top wash color to give it a nice rustic, modern farmhouse touch, and choose your colors for words and designs. Beth and Ashley of AR Workshop were so helpful with this. I recommend looking around their large shop for inspo to see which colors really work well together. I love that this allowed your mind to really get your own creative gears turning. And don’t worry, if you are not artsy, their employees will totally guide you and give you knowledge that makes sense to those who are not Picasso by any means.
While I waited on my paint to dry, which dries fairly quickly, we were catered with special treats from Clean Juice Lexington which totally hit the spot!! I tried their Yummies bowl with Honey Poppyseed dressing and literally could have licked the bottom of the bowl if no one was watching. (Maybe I did).. so dang good and healthy! It was light and fresh and made all of that working up a sweat easy to continue because it was just the right amount of energy boost to keep ya fueled!
I was so excited to showcase my new front porch decor I snapped a photo to show it off for you all. My colors go seamlessly with my homes vinyl siding color and I’m so proud of it! This was sooo much fun and AR Workshop is a perfect place for girl’s night out, team building for work places, tween birthday parties, date night and much, much more! Give them a call to book your next project and be sure to use code SODACITY10 for 10% off!!
I can’t wait to see what you build and to hear all about your experience! Don’t forget to grab Clean Juice on your way there to munch on too!
