You guys, we have been DIY’ing like mad people over here lately, and there’s still plenty more to come. To spread the love, I’m helping welcome Chelsea’s newest addition to the club by sharing this DIY XOXO throw blanket over on her blog while she’s spending a little extra time bonding with Mr. Henry, so be sure to check it out!

And don’t forget to enter to win my bike! Because first comes love, then picnic bicycle dates, and then little Henry’s. Don’t worry, I’m still in the bicycle phase for now.

DIY Colorblocked Barn Door

Okay, I’m going to attempt to make a very, very long story short here with this DIY. I had been imagining this awesome, mod sliding door for the new studio, and at first I was picturing it to be white with multi-colored brush strokes like my DIY watercolor cake. Then Jared convinced me that would be too intense and that I should go a different route, so then I was thinking about making it white with gold midcentury starbursts patterned all over, but then those got lost in the mail and finally arrived two weeks late and were NOT cute. I repeat, not cute (I can’t stand mismatched golds close together!). Alas, I went with an old favorite, colorblocking, to bring you this DIY colorblock barn door.

I tell you all of this just to reassure myself that I’ve not completely lost my mind in the middle of all of this renovating business, and I’m not-so-secretly hoping you’re going to tell me that you have all made a million and one changes to your home improvement strategies (and a million trips to Lowe’s) before you got to “the one”. Sheesh! A thousand hours on Pinterest couldn’t even have prepped me for that amount of on the spot decision making, my friends!

DIY Color Dipped Clothes Hangers

With it being “winter” here in Houston for the last month and a half, I’ve finally decided to create a cute designated space for our coats and bags that isn’t the middle of the meeting table and every chair back in the room. We got this legit brass clothes hanger from Avelere that was begging me for a pop of color, so I came up with these DIY color dipped clothes hangers.

Yes, I know, you’re now all wondering why I would randomly have clothes hanging from our studio coat rack. Well my friends, I have to keep the mystery of the studio alive a little bit or you’ll have already seen everything by the time the studio launch party and tour rolls around! Plus a non-studioesque setting would be more relatable to most for everyday use anyways. Speaking of which, if you’re a household with lots of littles running around, color coded hangers might be the perfect weekend DIY for making everyone a designated foyer space!

In case you’ve never done an intense four hour Google search for “cute folding tables”, they practically don’t exist unless you’re spending big, big bucks. With the holidays, workshops, and all of the photo shoots going on at the studio all of the time, I was in serious need of a cool folding table that we could still tuck away when we didn’t need it. Since all we do around here is DIY anyway, it only stood to reason that we make our own, so we came up with this DIY reclaimed wood folding table using distressed white Stikwood.

I really love the way it came out and the not-so-coincidental fact that it makes one heck of a sweet background for photos. I mean, has a cake ever looked so good or what?! Did I also mention that you can win Stikwood to make your own, too? Oh, yes…
