If you all follow along on Instagram, then you got a sneak peek at today’s project whilst I was trying to show off my party nail (priorities, you guys, priorities), but I’m super pumped about how these DIY pattern throw pillows turned out! Mostly I’m using them to cover up the ridiculous amounts of crap that this white couch insists on collecting, so let this be a lesson to you to never buy a white cotton couch. You will hate (lounging) life.

Since I couldn’t find exactly the pattern or color scheme I was looking for in pillows, I snagged some plain white pillow covers to give myself a blank slate to work with lots of crazy colors, and though the color choices may be a bit much for an average home, the small doses of them make it easier to add to a space. Of course, you can always tone down the the color palette to your room decor, too…

Hello, Carisa from Camp Pretty here with another DIY! This tutorial is
really simple and you need very few materials! I love the look of gold and
wood grain together (it’s also very Sugar & Cloth!), so these cute little DIY retro faux wood candle holders are my new favorite thing.

Its a great inexpensive way to instantly make your decor look much much
higher end, and you can finally break down and buy the not-so-cute-candle that smells good now that you can spice it up a bit…

DIY Mid Century Daybed and Guest room tour

I’ve been wanting to fix up the guest room for forever. I actually used to use it as my craft room once upon a time before moving to the first Sugar & Cloth studio (I cringe at what this room used to look like!), and it’s basically just been the place where random things go to live until they find a real home. I also felt really bad when my Dad was here for almost an entire month trying to help us renovate the new studio space and was sleeping in this room with just a blow up mattress (yikes!). So clearly this DIY mid century day bed and guest room tour was long past due!

I really love the way it has turned out, and finding a few key pieces (thanks to my AllModern addiction!) helped make the space much more interesting. This room also leads to the back patio so a daybed DIY was perfect for making it feel like a universal space as opposed to walking straight through a bedroom, and it’s still small enough to not overwhelm the room (it’s barely a 10ft wide space!)…
