If you’re an avid follower of our Instagram or Facebook, then you probably already got the chance to see some of these photos. (We threw in a few unseen ones here too!)  

But for the rest of you, we’re excited to share the final Sugar & Cloth Houston studio tour! It’s been a loooong time in the works. But there’s nothing like a good feature on Glitter Guide to motivate you to get it all in tip top shape.

We meant to announce the reveal and interview all in one go last week… but hey, life happens!

Now for the juicy details! The number one question we get asked by people who see the studio in photos is “how do you keep it so clean and white!?” The honest answer to that is we don’t. It is bright and white. But photos can be verrrry forgiving when it comes to hiding the spots .

We learned the hard way that hot glue doesn’t like painted cement floors. And all you have to do is so much as look at a bottle of craft paint the wrong way, and it will spill everywhere.

Add all of that in with our not-so-graceful tendencies, and it’s basically a recipe for an off-white studio disaster. So we also spend a lot of time wiping down surfaces…

When it comes to styling essentials, we do much better when we can pull inspiration from our bag of styling tricks quickly. So adding a few open shelves made that way easier.

We’ve already concluded that we’re a super hero for surviving our previous craft room at home and still managing to have any cute props in photos whatsoever before the studio came along. It’s night and day easier!

Funny story about these shelves. As it turns out that we invited my brother over to help “clean up” the studio just before everything was getting photographed.

And it accidentally turned into 2.5 hours of him trying to find a way to drill through the thick metal studs in the walls to install the shelves just where we wanted them and patching the mistakes.

Basically, he loved every minute of helping me “clean”.

We wanted to incorporate some of my favorite DIY projects that I’d made before into the space. The Ikea hack bar cart had to be one of them.

We use it as another way to house props and add a bit of color and personality to the blank slate.

Meet Our Sugar & Cloth Photographer

Now let us introduce Jared. If you haven’t already met, he’s the guy behind the camera for most projects you see here on the blog as of lately.

Jared is one of the few people we know that stays as calm with an award winning poker face when we have accidental meltdowns over cupcakes and crafts here and there.

He also has a tough time acting natural in front of the camera. So you should all feel honored you get the chance to see him hold a frilly honeycomb while remaining calm.

It’s kind of the equivalent of capturing an image of a dressed up, endangered snow leopard.

A Few Other Fast Facts You May Not Know

  • We get overly concentrated when it comes to DIY’ing and styling. So this in turn comes across like we’re just seriously rude and unfriendly, which isn’t actually the case (though that’s personal opinion)!
  • This is the one dress we’ve ever splurged on. It’s OUR DREAM summer white dress, and it was on super sale. Plus, I’ve worn it everyday since. Okay, not everyday, but really close.
  • The first photo in this post is an accurate description of my belly laugh.
