When looking for nightstands, we loved the look of wicker/rattan/cane but couldn't find anything we liked in the right price point. So instead we found these inexpensive side tables and upcycled them into a boho wicker rattan cane nightstand! The end result was well worth it at the cost of $35 each / $70 for two nightstands vs. $113 for a similar one at Target.
When advent calendars are too expensive and not that cute, you go with a DIY one! Inspired by the talented creators at The Merry Thought, I loved their advent calendars and decided to combine the two - this one and this one. All credit goes to these brilliant creatives!
DIY: Geometric Diamonds
I bought my first succulent in one of these geometric diamonds - can you guess which one it was from the picture below? One is unlike the others...but oftentimes people can't tell the difference. The 3rd one from the left is made out of metal pipes but the rest are made out of...
Coffee straws! Who would've guessed right? Such a simple and cheap material turned into something that looks far more expensive! A little gold spray can do wonders.
DIY: Marble and Gold Coasters
One of the first crafts we ever made were pallet coasters made from stained popsicle sticks. They matched perfectly with another one of our favorite crafts - a dark stained crate table. But as our tastes changed (as you may have noticed), we decided that it was time to revamp our coasters to better match our new minimalist style. Marble and gold have been our two go-two textures, so we used materials we already had from other projects to make these coasters!
As we prepare for our housewarming party this Sunday, we wanted to make menus for what we would be serving. We loved the look of white handwriting on glass that we had done for our wedding, so recreated it in a menu form using dollar store frames!
