I normally like white and bright interior spaces with pops of color found in the décor. Lately, I’ve been drawn to dark, moody shades. Dark walls can be beautiful and elegant, but also intimidating to someone who has never painted a room in their home such a bold shade. That’s why I love the idea of painting a dark accent wall. You can still make a bold statement without the commitment of painting an entire room.
I was never really a big hat wearer. In fact, I just bought my first fancy hat two months ago for a music festival. Of course I haven’t worn it since. Even though I don’t wear hats that often, I love the idea of hanging them on a wall as a way to store and display them as decoration. Maybe if I buy more hats I’ll be more inclined to wear them…that’s how life works, right?
It’s been a while since my latest DIY post. I haven’t been very inspired to create lately, so I thought I would revisit an old tutorial. It’s so weird (and slightly cringe worthy) reading my old blog posts. Even now I still have trouble thinking up what to say in these little introduction blurbs. Anyway, can you believe my DIY Thread Wrapped Bracelet post is from 3 years ago?! That post ended up being one of my most liked and shared DIY posts. It’s funny that as a blogger you can never predict what will be popular and what won’t. Even back then I thought about all the ways you could customize these bracelets so today I thought I’d share two of those ways!
* I used 8mm end caps so make sure your rope in at least 6-8mm in diameter as well. I bought both the rope and rhinestone (with holes!) at AC Moore.*
1. Start by cutting a piece of rope long enough to go around your wrist. I cut mine about an inch shorter than I needed it to wrap around my wrist to account for the end caps and fastening. Wrap your first color down the length of the cut rope and glue both ends.
It seems as though the weaving trend is here to stay, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Wall hangings are a great way to add color and texture to your home. If you don’t want to buy or make your own loom, no-weave alternatives are a great way to achieve a similar effect. There are many different styles of no-weave wall hangings, and I rounded up 10 of my favorites!

Donut or Doughnut? No matter how you spell it everyone should be super excited about National Donut Day this Friday! I love any excuse to eat donuts, but I feel less guilty about it knowing everyone else is eating them too! Not only are donuts delicious, they are also super cute! It’s amazing how you can turn pretty much anything round into a version of the sweet treat. Donut Soap by Bespoke Bride
