If you have been following on ISPYDIY snapchat, I have been bringing you all along on my thrifting adventures! Over the last couple years I have been shifting my focus to home decor DIY, which is super exciting because I have been taking on some bigger room design projects (I can’t wait to show you the nursery makeover I just finished!). I have been having so much fun melding my love for thrifting and DIY to decorate spaces. Since I am spending so much time in antique stores, I thought I would share some of my finds. Good Will is often hit or miss, but I was so exited to find this rattan side table for $15! It needs a little love, but totally worth the price tag! The next to came from my local antique store, and I was there looking for a file cabinet for my succulents, and found black this fan for $50 (the blue one was a find from a year ago that started my vintage fan love). The turkish kilim rug was something a saw a few times while shopping, and finally had a den project that it would be perfect for, so got it for $150, a steal! Stay tuned for more finds and tips and tricks for getting a great deal. Have a great weekend~
I was feeling a little uninspired this week, so took a little field trip to some of my favorite stores to window shop for inspiration. I hit a goldmine at a local plant store when I stumbled on the insanely cool file cabinet plant holder in the first picture, amazing right? Remember when my friend sent me 80 succulents? I might have found the perfect place to store them all (well, the one that are still living, oooops). Now off to the antique store to find the perfect drawers!
The off-the-shoulder shirt is officially the must-have of the summer! If you haven’t purchased one yet, fear not, it’s easy to make one from a button-up you (or your guy) might have in the closet. Since it’s too nice outside to be indoors sewing, we are making a quick no-sew version that will have you back to BBQing in no time! A cotton button-up is great for this project because the fabric will hold the adhesive, and last through the wash. Quick Tip: Make sure to pick one that is a little oversized so you can pull it over your head. I loved using a super fun tropical printed men’s shirts for this DIY and most are cotton, so the fabric is breathable on hot summer days, and the designs are perfect for completing your festival-worthy outfit.

Happy Friday All! Super stoked because my whole family is going to be in town this weekend for my nephew’s graduation party. I am in charge of the guacamole, which I am pretty confident will be the hit of the party…because honestly, who does not love guac? Before the weekend starts, I just wanted to stop in and share a little Pom Palm Brunch Punch we put together for a client. I’m telling ya, if you want to make a get together extra fun, paint a pineapple, and hot glue pom poms to it! For real, how could a party get better…well, guacamole… because guac makes everything better. If you are looking for the Brunch Punch recipe stop by my I SPY DIY Facebook page for all the details. See you next week!
