Marble runs a really close second (to all things gold) in my list of home decor obsessions. The sad part about it is that it’s about as expensive to come by as gold is, plus I can’t exactly carve it myself, though that would make me one killer DIY’er if I could. Instead, I stick with the nail polish budget version (literally), and make my own DIY marble dipped vessels.
I thought about using marbled shelf liner paper for this project but I wanted to be able to get a sleek, seamless look, so I created my own color recipe to make a real faux marble pattern with polishes! A lot of people have done similar projects with the bright, neon colors, but I feel like you can’t go wrong with mixing a bit of traditional marble in with your decor, no?
Hello DIY’ers! It’s Teri from The Lovely Drawer, here to bring you a tutorial for some cute wall candy. I’m convinced that everyone is fond of a perfectly round mirror right now, and I’ll hold my hands up and say I’ve purchased one myself, but I wondered if you could make your own unique version. A handled chopping board is the perfect base material and if you buy one that already has the hanging hole, then you don’t even need to get your drill out (I avoid using drills at all costs, you see_) to make this DIY hanging mirror!
You can choose the colors for your mirror and a size that suits your space, too. It took me a little while to work out what would hold a mirror securely to the wood but I can safely say my research paid off!
As you already know, I’m all about adding a little color to my life… and studio, and walls, and accessories, and the list goes on. I’m also getting an itch to do a little color addition to the studio, but I’m not sure I’m willing to commit to painting another wall in there just yet (mostly due to painting so much during the reno that I think I painted in my dreams for at least three weeks afterwards). So instead, I’m leaving you with six pastel color block walls that we’re loving right now as some weekend decor inspiration!

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…
