I’ve been on the hunt for some unique glassware for cocktail posts for a while now, and every time I find something I love, there’s either only one glass or it’s a set that’s overly expensive. So when Chambord asked us to add a touch of odd luxury to a holiday DIY, I knew just what to make! Alas, I ended up with this quirky and fun DIY metallic patterned glassware made with permanent gold vinyl.
At first I thought I wanted to do all retro starbursts, but then I got a little frisky with the scissors and made some abstract geo versions that I ended up liking even better! The vinyl I found makes them feel super upscale, so I got a little carried away with making a ton of them, because why not?!…
Even after my DIY marble clock and DIY gilded marble serving boards, I still had approximately one million of these marble hexagons left in the closet, just screaming to be used. Okay, so a million is a bit of an exaggeration, but I could serve snacks to an entire city block with them for sure. All of this to say I’ve given them YET another twist, with this DIY hanging marble serving board project.
The good news: I’m getting rid of some more of these marble weights (which is essentially what they’ve been for the last few months) and I’m also whipping up DIY gifts to give left and right! Seriously, these are super perfect for gifting considering you can make them for less than $5 each. Not even the Target bargain dollar section can compete with that!..
Are you guys tired of hearing about holidays and traditions from me yet? Hopefully not, because I’m introducing yet another new element to our annual Christmas celebration this year with a little s’mores party action (…and my five other new traditions, but you know…). Can you blame me, though? This little guy is so super cute!
To show him off, I took it upon myself to jazz up the studio a bit with some affordable holiday style and invited some of our studio neighbors over. And by invited I mean that I told them to dress cute and act natural because almost no one gets out of the studio without a least one photo to prove it.
It also let us test drive our new studio sofa (we finally got rid of the miserably hard to clean white one!) and coffee table setup that I picked out from…wait for it…Walmart.com. Now before you judge, and because I like to keep things super transparent with you guys, I feel compelled to admit that I was hesitant about it.
They’re not exactly the first place that comes to mind when I think of modern and cool, but then it kind of blew my mind to find out that I could order basically this entire room online and it was still in our budget. So for those of you that are turned off by the in-store thing, or for those of you wishing you had known you could get this $89 coffee table before your holidays guests arrived long before now, let me show you what I picked out…
