Turn A Birch Door Into a Dining Table With Prettypegs

Ok guys, I’m pretty excited about this DIY. I’ve teamed up with PrettyPegs, a company based in Stockholm, Sweden.  It’s an absolute joy to introduce you to these products, which combines classic Scandinavian simplicity with colorful playfulness. This Birch door turned dining table only takes about 30 minutes and you have yourself a lovely new piece for the home.   Materials Solid Birch Door Sandpaper Damp Cloth Minwax Water Based Polyurethane Foam Brush Prettypegs  (we went with the Otto 700) Screw Driver Instructions 1. Sand your table if it hasn’t been pre-sanded already. 2. Put your first coat of Polyurethane onto your table top. Allow to dry and sand again. Wipe clean. Put on a second coat.  3. Once your table top has completely dried, flip over and measure where you would like to place your legs. Screw in the hardware accordingly.  4. Simply screw in the legs, flip over and enjoy!! It’s so easy, you could make these all day long. If you really wanted to. I love this dining table! The soft pink legs truly make the overall space look more modern and Scandinavian-inspired. I mean, seriously. You could make so many projects for the home using their amazing selection: tables, sofas and beds to name a few.  I’m debating on using our new table as a large desk/craft table in our studio space! It’s just so pretty – what do you think?!  XOXO,...
3D Object Capture | Dala Horse Prints

3D Object Capture | Dala Horse Prints

Well, friends. Welcome to the future, because this crazy technology is straight out of the movie Mission Impossible. As a maker and DIYer, this is a truly revolutionary way to create.  With the new all-in-one Sprout 3D scanning and object capture, I can take any object, manipulate it digitally and then bring it into the physical world in a refreshing way!  It’s a rare and extraordinary way of working with materials in your very own home.  I decided to work with a Scandinavian Dala horse. My husband is proud of his Swedish backgroud, but coming across a Dala Horse is both rare and pricy. We’ve collected a few from flea markets, but those opportunities are far and few between. I decided to create a collection of Dala Horse prints. Here is how we were able to create these lovely 3D designs for our home:  1. Simply place you object on the touch mat and tap the scan button. The Illuminator will capture a 3D color image of your object. 2. Follow the simple guided instructions to rotate and capture your object from multiple angles. This is where you can watch as Sprout magically combines the images to build a beautiful, fully editable 3D model before your eyes.  3. Once you bring your object into the digital world, you can manipulate it however you want: rotate, shrink, stretch, or combine with other 3D objects to give your creation a whole new look. We played around with some of the awesome filters and decided to give it some texture using the wood and marble option.  4. You can share full 3D images of your creations online or connect to a 3D printer to create a physical...

DIY Hanging Planter Shelf

DIY Hanging Planter Shelf

I am finally back from our two week long holiday! So sorry for the absense. It was really nice for us to spend some time as a family, relax and focus on other things for a little bit. To be honest, I was feeling really overwhelmed and uninspired for a bit leading up to our vacation. But it’s amazing what some time away from the hustle and bustle of life can do for the soul. We spent a lot of time near the ocean and mountains and I came home feeling like I could breath again! I have some catching up to do, but today I wanted to share with you this fun DIY Hanging Planter Shelf I did for Curbly while I was away! It’s such a fun way to display plants and get them off of the floor. For the full how-to, head on over to Curbly! Be sure to let me know what you all think! XOXO,...

DIY Modern Heart Art

DIY Modern Heart Art

I’m back with a super simple way to add a graphic and bold statement to your space with very little supplies and without spending a ton of money! I love bold, black and white art for my home. It feels clean, minimal and fresh, no matter what surrounds it!  Materials Thick Card Stock Pencil Paint Paint Brush Frame Instructions 1. You may choose to create a small sample of what you want your finished design to look like and refer to it as you create your larger scale art. 2. Simply start by drawing out your design using a pencil. With your paint and paint brush, carefully paint over your pencil guide. Allow to dry completely.  3. Place in your frame, hang up and enjoy!  To be honest, I originally made this art piece for my home for Valentine’s Day and forgot to share it! But I love it so much, it’s still in the frame and on my wall! Goes to show that geometric hearts can still stand the test of time, especially when they are modern and bold! I would love to do another piece, but a little more current, so stay tuned! What do you think?!  XOXO,...
