I finally got around to using the great pieces of driftwood we collected during our little Kauai getaway. I made candle holders!

If you already have a drill, then these are super easy to make. You just need your driftwood, and a drill bit that can make 1 1/2″ holes. I picked one up for about $8.

First, I used my tea candles to  figure out exactly where I wanted them to sit on the driftwood. Then I drilled away. Make sure to used extreme caution when handling a drill, work on a safe surface, and wear protective eyewear. I also recommend holding your wood in place with some sort of clamp.

Now clean them up with a vacuum, drop in your candles, and…

Fun & Free Toy Storage for Kids

Shoe Box House Storage viawww.thegoldjellybean.com

 

Ever since Christmas, I have been working with Sydney to get rid of some old toys, and make room for the new ones. In doing so, I am also trying to make organizing her toys fun. She loves everything little, and has tons of tiny erasers, dolls, etc. So I took some old shoe boxes, paint, & markers, and made fun little homes for her favorite micro toys.

New In The Store : Gold Insect Magnets!

 

I made some insect magnets awhile back, and had been toying with the idea of making sets to add to my Etsy store. Well, as soon as I came across these higher quality bugs with nicer details, I knew it was time to get to work! The magnets are in sets of two, and come in a custom painted tin, ready to gift. They will add fun and humor to your fridge or office. Be sure to head to my store and check them out! I will also beadding some new vintage items this afternoon. Continue reading

Design Trends : Seeing Blue

 

There’s no doubt that when it comes to recent design trends, blue is in. I first fell in love with the color and brought it home when we moved to our current apartment last spring. We coated our 12 foot bedroom walls in the perfect shade of navy blue. The color has actually become one of my all time favorite paint colors, and I can’t wait to use it in another room!

The blue hue is the perfect color scheme if you’re looking to achieve a unique and globally inspired design. Earlier this summer Ikea launched their limited edition True Blue Collection. It’s an Indian-inspired collection, and, in my opinion, it’s to die for. I want to own it all, and have been eagerly awaiting a release of the collection in our local stores. Sadly, I have finally come to the realization that it probably won’t happen. Sigh.

DIY Anthropologie Inspired Floral Lamp Shade

 

Good afternoon! I am a little late posting today because I was having so much fun making this lamp shade for Sydney’s room. When we moved, some of our shades were damaged, and I have been meaning to revamp and fix them for the past year. Well, when I saw this adorable lampshade from Anthropologie, I was immediately inspired to create a similar look and finally fix one of the shades!  The flowers perfectly covered up cracks in the shade, and now it looks as good as new.

A Quick Bedroom Makeover On A Budget

 

After two full days of painting, rearranging, and accessorizing, the bedroom is done! The new paint color really transformed the room, making it feel fresh and bright. I also shifted the bed over, and moved the existing chest from the foot of the bed to the side. Now it has dual purpose as both storage and a night table. This also cleared up floor space at the foot of the bed. Then, I moved the large floor mirror to the other side of the room to help define a dressing area near the closet and bombay dresser. With this layout, the room is more spacious and inviting.

In order to marry the old and the new, I mixed in vintage items with beach accents, like this antique bowl filled with shells and starfish. The white ceramic bird adds a touch of whimsy.

Along with a few other accents, the yellow throw pillow brings a cheery feel to the room.

I couldn’t pass up this rope ball door stop. So cute!

In the end this diy room renovation took two days and just $300. As you can see, you don’t have to break the bank to update your bedroom!

Here is the Before & After:

Eclectic China

 

I wanted to register for china for our wedding, but we ended up going the Crate and Barrel route instead. And then of course a year, and a couple broken dishes later, the stores stopped carrying our set. You can get them through special order, but what a fuss. So when we moved and needed more dishes, I changed up our set. Between thrift stores and hand-me-downs, we now have a mix of fun china and great basics. Do they match? Well, no… not in the traditional sense. But they do all work together. And the best part? If something breaks, its easily replaceable. Continue reading

DIY Horse Roundup

Our daughters room is still a work in progress, but this weekend we made some headway. We found 7 molded plastic horses at a local flea market and couldn’t pass them up! After getting them home and having a long debate on where they should go, we decided they would be most fun in a child’s room. They have been sitting around for awhile, and this weekend we finally cleaned them up, painted them, and installed them in their new home. Continue reading

Making our Apartment a Home.

 

My husband and I have always been big city people, and we actually used to enjoy moving. We first met in Chicago, where we only spent a year at each apartment we rented. When we moved to California we did the same. But once Sydney came along, we finally renewed a lease. So when we moved back to Chicago last year, we decided it was time to find a place where we could get comfortable and stay awhile. Once we found apartment we loved, the next step was to make it feel like a home. Continue reading

Easy DIY Solution for an Unsightly Fuse Box

We have a fuse box right in the middle of one of the walls in our office alcove. It drives me crazy, so I thought about hanging something over it to completely hide it. Then I decided, why hide it if I can make it into something useful and fun to look at instead. So I gathered some pictures and magnets, and this is what I came up with…. Continue reading
