I am definitely no stranger to whipping up my own sugar scrubs here and there, so when method asked me to create colorful eye candy based around their new foaming body washes (have you tried them yet? the sea mist is my favorite!), I naturally had to spruce up my favorite homemade shower must-have! Now not to toot my own horn or anything, but I may be just a teeny, tiny bit obsessed with this DIY sugar scrub sand art inspired by their colorful new line!
I mean, I never thought my inner eight year old self would be shining through all of these years later with a whole new love for sand art, but never say never. Don’t get me wrong, I probably won’t be adapting any sand art themes into my home decor or anything, but it’s fun in small, colorful doses with things here and there (especially tucked away in the shower), don’t you think?! …
As you know, I’m no stranger to color (that’s almost even laughable to say when it comes to me), so it was a perfect fit to team up with Lowe’s for She Knows by rounding up some of my favorite colorful projects inspired by the new Sherwin-Williams color collection. It was tough to narrow down (I have a new favorite projects every week, it’s like trying to pick a favorite child, you know?), but I’ve narrowed it down to the 8 DIY ways to add color to your home this Summer!

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!
