Ikea Hack: DIY Console Table

We love ourselves a good Ikea hack. Oh yes we do. This version is courtesy of our in-house design star, Jess. She was on the lookout for a console table that would streamline her tv situation and not add bulk. One that was chic and still offered up storage for unsightly remotes and things of that nature. And from that, this yummy DIY was born. Grab the...

Tips on Starting an Indoor Herb Garden

DIY Gilded Garden Markers

It was a whopping 3 degrees outside the other day which, if you ask anyone who experienced this brutal winter, is a huge, mega, massive win. I swear I saw people roaming the streets in shorts!

These DIY gilded garden markers, of course!

DIY Herb Garden Pots

At just $1.99 per plant pot, this is one DIY that feels like a no brainer. It's amazing how a little white paint can totally and completely transform such a simple object. And by playing with different levels of opacity, layering on that paint will allow you to achieve this marbled look for less than the cost of your morning cup of coffee. That, right there, is a win as far as I'm concerned!

Gilded Black Candy Apples

I used to think that candy apples we're one of those classic treats that you just didn't want to mess with. Yeah, you could add a caramel coating, some peanuts, m&m's, what have you. But in my opinion they all palled in comparison to the original version. That is, until you gild them. Because the second that happens, all bets go out the window. Gilded black candy apples? It doesn't get much better than that.

But, before we get to the party we wanted to share the totally essential ...

DIY Calligraphy Pumpkins

I have a bit of a love hate relationship with Halloween. I love the candy aspect (obviously), and the whole costume thing is fantastic (my inner child is so in). But the designer within has issues getting on board with all things ghoulish and gross. So when our in house designer came up with the idea of carving our pumpkins using cute calligraphy quotes? Well, it really doesn't get much better than that. Pumpkin Serrated knife Large spoon Linoleum cutter Masking tape...
