As you know, I’m all about some edible art (nothing is too pretty to stop me from eating a slice of cake, amen?)! We’ve got plenty of DIY watercolor sweets coming up for the holiday season, but one should never pass up the opportunity to celebrate a good watercolor series when they can…
Sometimes I wonder if you all really knew everything that went on behind the scenes you’d love us more, or be worries for our sanity. The verdict may always be out on that one, but nonetheless it’s still fun giving you glimpses from behind the scenes! It also gives me the chance to show you some things that aren’t always made for the blog, like the pool photo shoot we did with American Express.
The photo we posted for it Instagram turned out awesome, but what you didn’t get to see was the rain store that happened right after we finished blowing up all one million floats at the location house!! I almost cried. I almost cried on a stranger’s porch, but I resisted!
We actually shot the floats at the owner of On Point Custom Homes house. Needless to say we were practically all besties after I ran around their yard for two hours in basically no clothing while trying not cry, and also tossing inflatable pigs around. Good times! Now you have all been warned in case you ever invite me over for a pool party…

I’m going to be totally transparent here, and tell you that I technically have no idea what a sideboard actually is compared to any other piece of storage furniture. All I know is that after some very strategic Google image searching and several misspelled words, I’m now informed that there is a difference between a dresser, credenza, sideboard, and storage cabinet. While we all resonate on that mystery for a bit, I’m going to teach you how to make said retro DIY sideboard, okay?
Without making things anymore confusing, you can also consider this an Ikea hack, so I hope you’re stretched and ready for some Swedish furniture building! To make this even weirder, I actually repurposed front door knockers to be the giant hexagon handles, so there’s always that…
