I am so happy that the studio is finally coming together! This triangle shelf is putting a huge grin on my face, and looks perfect in the space. After looking at a bunch of inspiration, I sketched up a design for my amazing wood worker, Mike, who made it come to life. I know, I know… it’s not technically a DIY, but with so many project needing to get done in the studio, I asked for a little help. We decided on 8ft for all the sides, and made 30 degree miters to create the base. After centering the middle shelves, he channeled his inner gemometry to cut and fit the inner triangles. I am so so so happy with how it turned out, and had the most fun adding my personal touches to the shelves. Stay tuned because I am sure I will style and restyle the triangle many times! (more…)
I spotted a triangle shelf on Pinterest a while back and knew I had to have one in the studio. I love that they are such a statement piece on a blank wall, prefect for displaying all my succulents and chachkies. Plus, I have couple brick walls that are tough to hang anything on, so it’s the perfect way to decorate the blank space. Next up was deciding the configuration, and working with my favorite wood worker handyman to make it come to life. Stay tuned to see how it turned out. And in the meantime, how amazing are these above? So obsessed!

I have been on a bit of a plant buying extravaganza! My studio doesn’t have any outdoor space, so adding plants brings the outdoors in. They bring so much life to the studio, and are really helping to fill out the space New plants means I need places to put all of them, and instead of buying crazy expensive pots, I decided to give a few inexpensive ones a colorful makeover. If you are anything like me, each year you have a new color scheme, so I was beyond excited to try out Krylon®’s Spray ‘n Peel paint. No joke, you can spray all you pots one color this year, then easily peel off the paint to create a new color palette next year. Crazy right? And it works. I have been trying it on a bunch of different surfaces, and am super impressed with the coverage. It’s the perfect spray paint for the indecisive mind! Since you know I love my pops of yellow, I had to add some sunny accents to my pots before planting my succulent garden. If you do have outdoor space, these pots are the perfect addition to add color to your patio or backyard. Get all the steps for making your own after the break… (more…)
I am in Cleveland right now for a photoshoot (get the behind-the-scenes look on ISPYDIY snapchat!) but wanted to pop in with a quick and uber cute tassel accessory. With a little bit of fringe trim, you can turn a string of beads into a statement summer necklace. Steps and supplies after the break… (more…)
