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!
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…

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!)…
