DIY Concrete Photo Background

Concrete Photo BackgroundConcrete Photo BackgroundI’ve been blogging for about 3 years now but I’m always looking for ways to improve my photography. The same plain white, poster board background was starting to get a little old. Literally and figuratively. I had seen some of the concrete countertops other DIY bloggers have been posting. I love the polished industrial look but I doubt my mom would appreciate me pouring concrete on her counters, no matter how much HGTV I watch. I figured I could get similar results on a piece of wood that I could pull out whenever I wanted to take photos, but also store when not in use. A quick trip to the hardware store and a little help from Dad, and I have an awesome new photo background.

DIY 3D Photo Shapes

IMG_8975 IMG_8898I was recently contacted by the amazing people at Buzzfeed asking if I would create a travel photo inspired DIY for them. Of course, I jumped at the chance and immediately started brainstorming ideas. We decided on 3D Photo Shapes! I created the shapes my first year of college and kept them until my last year when I threw them away because I didn’t know what to do with them. They were always one of my favorite projects from school, so I love the new repurposed shapes. They look great on a desk or bookcase, and will keep your travel memories in plain sight!
