DIY Project: Apple Stamp Table Runner

With fall in full swing, it seems that everyone is heading out to their local orchard and picking apples. The after effects of those trips are an abundance of indulgent desserts flooding my Instagram feed. Instead of using all of the apples to make pies and other yummy treats, I thought why not decorate my…

DIY Project: Leather Folders

I’m an avid believer in surrounding ourselves with things that inspire our work, because after all, work is what we spend most of our time doing. Though, maybe we can’t exactly watch our favorite TV shows or sip on scotch while we work (as much as I know that those things inspire me), we can…

DIY Project: Hello Beautiful Doormat

Fall is upon us, which brings crisp air, the coziest of clothes, delicious treats and lots of gatherings with our favorite people. It can also bring unwanted outside dirt inside at times. A doormat is the perfect solution to fix that, and to make this fall completely perfect. Doormats can have such a large impact…

DIY Project: Marbled Table Legs

Every person has that dream material or finish that is always their first choice, should their budget ever allow. For some it’s brass, others a rich wood like walnut, but for me it’s marble. Marble all day. If I could top every table with old marble (I prefer something that’s worn in and less precious)…

How To Paint a Tile Backsplash

I know what you’re thinking, and the answer is yes, you can totally paint a tile backsplash. It’s all about planning your design and having the right materials.

10 Creative DIY Stair Runner Ideas

This weekend I found myself dreaming of having a home with a second floor. I’ve spent most of my life (and dorm years) living in single-floor apartments or homes, and there’s always been something so grand about the idea of a dramatic staircase leading to bedrooms or other spaces that are a good distance away…

DIY Embossed Cards

I always think of embossed cards as the little black dress of stationery. A simple embossed card always feels in style and detailed enough to be interesting but isn’t so in your face with decorative details that the message is lost in the design. I’ve always wanted to know how to make my own embossed…

DIY Tassel Curtain Tie Backs

I spent the last week soaking up the final days of summer in my hometown of Virginia Beach, Virginia. If there’s one thing I learned in addition to how nice it is to start every morning at the beach, it’s that I really need to get some window shades going in our home. My parents…
