diy metallic confetti plates

holiday confetti plates

Aren't these metallic confetti plates the funnest thing you've ever seen?! I love dishes. Love. And I know they can get pricey. These diy plates and glasses were so fun and simple to make and the best part? They were super inexpensive. I bought all my plates and stemless wine glasses at the dollar store. You'll need some glass paint and a little round sponge brush. I got all of these at Michael's. Squirt a little blob of … [Read more...]

gold & copper faux fruit

copper & gold faux fruit

This little project is so simple and inexpensive. Pick up some fake fruit. These came from the dollar store. I did also find some better looking pomegranates from Tai Pan that I added to the mix. Using a disposable brush, cover the fruit with gold & copper liquid leaf. The once sad looking fruit are now beautiful metallic decorations that can last throughout the entire season. And it took less than 20 minutes.   Until … [Read more...]

pom pom wreath

pom pom wreath

Nothing welcomes in the holidays like a festive wreath. This simple pom pom wreath almost looks like puffs of fluffy snow. All you need for this wonderful wreath is a wreath form, yarn, scissors and a hot glue gun. I'll just let the pictures do the talking.                   Until next time.... … [Read more...]

stacked plywood coffee table

stacked plywood coffee table

Have you ever come across something sooo good you just need to have it? Well that's exactly what happened when I saw this stacked plywood bench from Mandi at Vintage Revivals. It was love at first sight. Oh, and it just so happens that I was on the hunt for a new coffee table at the same time. How fortuitous. This was an easy and satisfying diy project. When I bought my plywood from Lowe's I had the nice gents make all the cuts I needed, … [Read more...]

giant white board

giant diy white board

Last week I shared our office makeover. As mentioned, Curt's must-have for the space was a ginormous white board. Instead of a big, clunky, traditional whiteboard, he ordered a stick on white board from Writey Board. Holy awesome! It comes all rolled up and you just unroll and stick it on your wall. I didn't get any install pics because it took both of us to unroll and stick. This wall in our office has wood paneling so we needed a … [Read more...]

concrete apple

DIY concrete apple

How the crap are we already a week into November?! I had big blogging plans for this week, but it just flew by too fast. Ah, well. My triangle shelves deserve to have some awesome stuff displayed in them. And what's more awesome than a concrete apple?! Not much, my friends, not much. I found this plastic apple for $7.00. It comes apart into two pieces. I'm not entirely sure what its actual intended purpose is; candy dish? … [Read more...]

simple metallic art

DIY create art

  I've been sharing all the gooey details of our office makeover this week. As I mentioned in a previous post, our main goal for the office was to be a space that both Curtis and I could really get our creative juices flowing. I thought a little DIY inspiration was in order. I LOVE the simplicity of this art. I first did this project on canvas, but canvas has a hard time showcasing the shimmering awesome-ness of metallic spray … [Read more...]

diy triangle shelves

diy triangle shelves

Yesterday I shared our office makeover (and my confessions about being a craft hoarder) and let's be honest, these triangle shelves are kinda the show-stealer. Not only are they a huge "wow factor" but they couldn't be more simple to make. Honest. Here's what you need for these awesome shelves: - 1x4 pine board, 8 ft long (I made 10 triangle shelves with 5 boards) - miter saw - wood glue -nail gun - power sander Using a … [Read more...]

confessions of a craft hoarder

office

A craft hoarder. Yes, that's me. Well, actually I'm a recovering craft hoarder. For the past five or six years I was a hoarder of everything and anything that could possibly be used in any DIY project. "I could use that for something." Sound familiar? Well that was practically my catchphrase. For a lot of years. Fast forward to 2014. The "office" was not a functional room in any capacity. It was just a big, unorganized collection of stuff. … [Read more...]

diy concrete pots

IMG_0122

My love of succulents and my love of concrete has finally collided and exploded into a plethora of these fantastic concrete pots. Oh, and let's not forget my total obsession with gold liquid leaf. It was inevitable, I suppose. One of the great things about these pots, besides how amazing they look, is how easy and inexpensive they are to make. I like to buy the buckets of Quikrete from Lowe's. A 20 pound bucket is around $10.00. And I … [Read more...]
