For the second installment (before the full reveal!) of Ainsley’s room makeover with Valspar, I present to you my take on the ever-faithful DIY geometric accent wall. You already all know that I love a good white, bright room, but for a little girl I wanted to punch it up a bit with a colorful, modern touch in her favorite colors.
This project is perfect for a quick weekend update because you don’t need to go full-force on a whole room, it’s more like a quick, table-runner version of an accent wall by just highlighting a small section and leaving the rest of the color up-to the pretty accessories.
Remember the before photos and inspiration board I shared with you all a few weeks ago of the room makeover we’d be working on with Valspar? Well I’m excited to share one of the big projects we worked on (before I share the full reveal!) to help transform the space with a trusty old DIY Ikea hack floating credenza. After all, what room is really complete until there’s an Ikea hack, ya know?!
I wanted to make Ainsley’s room a bit more mature while still be functional and bright, with pops of color and fun touches here and there. This credenza was the perfect place for her to be able to easily open and close the doors at her height to put her toys away, and Mom loves it too, so it’s a win-win!
In case any of you have ever wished that the Apple Sticky Notes desktop app could magically transform into a real-life disposable desktop note taking system, your wish has been granted. I’ve teamed up with Scotch® Duct Tape to bring you a clever way to transform any plain desk into a note-takers paradise with this DIY chalkboard desk for quick and easy geometric notes using their new removable chalkboard tape.
Even better, you literally only need to supplies to make this project, and you can personalize it into whatever shapes you’d like: hearts, polka dots, letters, you name it! Oh, and the kids will have something to color on that isn’t the walls…
Alright, I’m back from West Texas and slowly getting back in touch with reality again. I figured after my “woe is me” posts lately I should reward you for sticking with me with dessert and bright colors! So, with the holidays coming up, it only means one thing..well two.. endless food and crafting. It’s basically what I live for every year. To combine my two loves, I made these DIY colorblock trivets to help you spice up the dining room table or kitchen to really solidify that you are, in fact, the hostess with the mostest.
You can make these little guys in whatever colors or shapes you’d like, all you need is a blank slate trivet and your trusty ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape…
