Well folks, the time has come! We’re finally kicking off the 2015 events in the new studio and I’m super excited to be teaching our first home decor DIY workshop with my lovely friend Brittni Mehlhoff on March 28th!

We’ll be teaching you how to make five different home decor projects with some of our favorite brands like West Elm, Color Cord, and Decor Art to take home, plus we have a killer goodie bag with even more home decor pretties to help you freshen up for Spring! As always, there will be plenty of photo-ops, sweets, and even lunch will be on us (we had to make a day of it, you know!). You can buy your ticket right here!

While you grab a friend for that, Jared and I are currently headed to Florida to visit my family for a bit and I’m super relieved to have absolutely no plans for a week. I have lots planned for you around here though, don’t worry! Be sure to follow along on Instagram for daily happenings behind the scenes!

DIY Mid Century Planters

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!

Hex-cellent: Jump on the hexagon decor trend

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…

The Sugar & Cloth Studio Kitchenette

I know I’ve shared a few peeks here and there, but the new Sugar & Cloth studio kitchenette is finally complete!… for the most part. Technically I still have two more shelves to fill with colorful dinnerware and an extra cacti or two before it’s really done, but hey, considering it looked like this to begin with, it’s finished it my book! Plus I have to keep some things a mystery otherwise you’ll fall asleep with coffee in hand by the time we make it to the studio tour.

We teamed up with the lovely folks at Lowe’s for the bulk of the studio renovating, and though 20 tubes of caulk, paint rollers, brooms, mops, scrub brushes, knee pads, nails, screws, grout, paint, and a thousand other little sweet nothing may not seem like much, it’s actually a part of everything you see here! I really don’t think we could’ve pulled if those millions of trips to Lowe’s with a list full of questions and materials hadn’t happened.

Don’t worry though, I’m going to give you the full run down on how we kept everything within budget, all of our sources, AND the secret to our $36 countertop! Seriously, I would not even joke about that!
