Once upon a time in May (don’t you love when anti-climactic stories start off this way?), I was at a Smilebooth event and met a lovely lady, Corey, who I asked to be best friends with me about 5 minutes into knowing each other. She had made this amazingly clever backdrop with chicken wire and paper and I was in love.

Technically, first I tried to convince her to start a blog, then I tried to convince her to come work with me, and then I asked her if we could be best friends. Alas, she has young kids and quit her corporate job to be able to be home with them so I have to wait a few years. In the meantime I’ve come up with a version of her project that you can use as DIY paper wall art, or make an even bigger version for your own backdrops until Corey will come hangout with me in the studio everyday and share all of her cool stuff with you…

My newest addiction and a giveaway to start your own online shopping habit to Chairish…

mid-century glam favorites from @chairishco | sugarandcloth.com

Well as if Amazon Prime hadn’t gotten out of hand enough for me, my lovely contributor Nanette went ahead and introduced me to Chairish. Now I’m three mid-century gem impulse purchases away from needing a billboard hotline number for intervention.

Have you been to the site before? It’s a really, really well curated version of all of the prettiest previously loved home furnishings and goods from all over the country that you can buy and have shipped to you.  I mean, it’s like an A+ flea market high at your finger tips, 24/7. I refused to let myself keep the iPhone app because we’re currently working on two room makeovers to share with you this month (yay!), and it was getting WAY too easy to justify them as business expenses.

All of this to lead me to my next point, which is Chairish kindly asked if I’d be interested in sharing a collection of my favorite items from the site which I replied in a very cool, calm, and collected way “YES!” and then proceeded to run a lap around the studio. I’ll cut to the chase and share twelve of my favorites here and then leave you be to browse the rest of my selections here, plus…

DIY // Hanging bundt cake pan planters

Well you guys, the studio is finally coming together one little corner at a time! I’m super relieved since just last week it looked like it didn’t know what it wanted to be, and today it looks like minty happiness now that my new Smeg arrived (please see here for a quick vid accurately describing my feelings over it).

Clearly after kissing and hugging your new mini fridge, the next step is to decorate around it, which is exactly what I did with these DIY hanging bundt cake pan planters. I wanted to have something that was kitchen-esque to make it feel like a little mini lunch and snack station since the studio doesn’t actually have a kitchen area.

Of course you can use these anywhere and they don’t actually have to be hanging, but it’s a super inexpensive project to make and you can find amazing patterns and shapes of bundt cake pans at just about any flea market or thrift store…

DIY // Animal Knobs

photos and tutorial by Aileen of At Home In Love

Every now and then we do a DIY project just for the kids. I say that only because if I made cat animal knobs for myself I would be deemed crazy cat lady (and not just because Brittni always says so), but if I had kids I could just blame it on them, right? Clearly I have all of my priorities straight.

Anyways, back on track, Aileen made these super cute DIY animal knobs inspired by Ferm Living’s animal hooks, that are as customizable as you could want them to be. Let the kids (cough, cough, or yourself) pick their favorite animal and the rest is wall hook history.
