DIY Ikea Hack Floating Credenza

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…

DIY Colorblock trivets

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

The Sugar & Cloth Houston Studio tour! (and a few fast facts you didn’t know about me)

If you’re an avid follower of my Instagram or Facebook then you probably already got the chance to see some of these photos (I threw in a few unseen ones, too), but for the rest of you, I’m excited to share the final Sugar & Cloth Houston studio tour! It’s been a loooong time in the works, but there’s nothing like a good feature on Glitter Guide to motivate you to get it all in tip top shape. I meant to announce the reveal and interview all in one go last week, but hey, life happens.

Now for the juicy details! The number one question I get asked by people who see the studio in photos is “How do you keep it so clean and white!?” Well the honest answer to that is I don’t. I mean, it is bright and white, but photos can be verrrry forgiving when it comes to hiding the spots where I learned the hard way that hot glue doesn’t like painted cement floors, and all you have to do is so much as look at a bottle of craft paint the wrong way and it will spill everywhere. Add all of that in with my not-so-graceful tendencies and it’s basically a recipe for an off-white studio disaster. We also spend a lot of time wiping down surfaces…
