Tips on Starting an Indoor Herb Garden

Black thumbs unite! I've been there. I feel you! I vividly remember feeling proud when my basil plant had a whopping three leaves hanging off of its branches. Gardening was never really my strongest suit, but in the past little while I've turned a corner. As it turns out, all you really need for a successful garden is a little know-how, and a lot of love. And with our help, your indoor herb garden will...

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! What I'm getting at you ask? Spring is on it's way. I can feel it. It's in the air. Which means that it's now time to get started on those gardens. And step one on that garden to-do list? 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.

DIY Gold Dot Vase

The frugalista within always gets really excited when we come up with a fabulous party project that can totally be repurposed once your party guests have retired for the evening. This Kate Spade inspired vase is all that and more. Though it undeniably added that je ne sais quoi to our shin-dig, I'd just as easily place it on my dining room table any ol' day of...

DIY Fringe Backdrop

Today is SMP's Annual Halloween Party! You might remember last year's French Masquerade theme that we all fell in love with. Well, this year we're mixing it up, going in more of a Kate Spade fab direction and we couldn't have loved the outcome any more. 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...

DIY Gold Dipped X-Bench

Before we get to the most fun bit of Erin's home makeover (the full tour, of course!) we thought we'd share a quick little tutorial on how we spruced up a few X-Benches in Erin's space. Now, there was nothing seriously wrong with them to begin with, but they did lack a little sparkle. And Erin is the kind of girl that seriously sparkles. So luckily, with a quick coat of white paint and a little dipping action...

And luckily for us Ruth Eileen sharing how she tackled these bad boys in three vastly different...
