You know me, I’m all about a good budget friendly home decor project, and these DIY gilded marble hexagon serving boards are seriously budget friendly compared to their name brand cousins. I found these gems and couldn’t decide what to do with them because I wanted to just make marble hexagon everything, but for now I’m settling with simple serve-ware to help you prep for your upcoming dinner parties and Spring soirees. You are going to have those soon, right? Someone please invite me, I’m super over dusk at 5pm!
Now back on track, these literally take all of five seconds to make, and you can skip the gilded edges and just them unaltered marble, or go bold with pops of color. Totally up to you, but either way, the tiles themselves cost less than $4, so you’ll be winning regardless! I think they’re so cute as dessert plates, but they’d double as great place cards for guests to keep as party favors, too!

All it takes is one good Christmas tree cactus project to set me off on a cacti DIY frenzy… and I’m loving it. I’ve decided to put them in alllll the places. Two year olds beware when it comes to visiting the new Sugar & Cloth studio, that’s all I have to say.
Don’t worry though, I’ve made sure to put them on the pedestal they belong on with these DIY mid century planters that you can make on a budget (thank goodness! “mid cenutry” and “budget” rarely go together). We even made what I’ve now deemed a “drive-thru” version of this project with a spin-off that you can make in less in ten minutes that has no legs at all. We figured that one out when we accidentally busted the bottom out of the planter and needed to glue a new one in place, but hey, we made some delicious lemonade out of those life lemons, if you know what I mean!
While I’m currently pinning my life away while feeling a bit under the weather, my love affair with all things gold is getting a little jealous about having to share my time with all things hex-cellent (see what I did there?). How can you blame me though when there are so many pretty ways to jump on the hexagon decor trend these days, and I haven’t even gotten to my own hex DIY’s yet!?
You don’t exactly have to be undertaking a renovation (thank goodness, the studio did me in for a while!) or breaking the bank to add a little hexagon to your life. For instance, the brass mirrors above from a home tour by Fantastic Frank on Planete-Deco are actually from Ikea for only $15! What?! I’ll take twenty…
