I’m 100% one of those people who’s house looks super organized and neat until you open a closet and 200 things fall out all at once. Basically out of sight, out of mind is my life motto, and I’m now spreading that profound love to morning routine form with this DIY vanity tray with storage.
This DIY also happens to be great for those of you that do actually organize your things (please send me some of your good juju!), but just so happen to only like a few things on display — I.e.- your new blush is only cute for the first few weeks and then it starts to look like it has bald spots.
All of this to say that there’s a little something for everybody with this project, and I’m super excited to back into the swing of more home decor DIY’s!…

Due to my prop hoarding capabilities, I’ve now successfully driven us to resort to more studio storage. I love the wide open, bright white studio space, but when we we’re building everything out, I really underestimated the power of being able to conceal junk behind closed doors. All of this to say that desperation led to cuteness of our new DIY color block storage.
At first I had a bit of color shock considering I’m used to seeing everything white except for the kitchen, but after being able to shove about three weeks worth of upcoming project materials into the cabinets, I’m officially on board!…
Much like the donut has become just as cool as the cupcake, copper is quickly creeping up to be the new gold in town… and I like it. These ten crazy, and I say crazy because of how insanely genius some of them are, copper DIY’s will have you on the decor forefront in no time! Just don’t be mad if the guys in Home Depot happen to look at you funny as you strategically pick out your favorite pieces of copper, all of the cool kids are doing it too.

A little insider tip: Did you know you can polish copper with ketchup? It’s true! If the smell of that much ketchup doesn’t make you nauseous, you can save yourself a lot of money cleaning up your DIY projects with it instead.
