Copper And Gold Geometric Wooden Eggs

The other day I shared some super easy Copper Wrapped Easter Eggs. But if that wasn’t interesting enough for you, I decided to branch off of that and show you another alternative Easter egg DIY: Copper and Gold Geometric Wooden Eggs.  What you will need: Tape  Spray Paint Wooden Eggs What to do: 1. Follow these directions 2. Take your spray paint (I used copper and gold) cover your wooden egg. You may need more than one coat (I used two) 3. Let the paint dry completely, then slowly peel away the tape 4. Display your fun Easter eggs!  I love the modern touch it brings to the space with the geometric patterns and metallic colors! It fits right in with the rest of our decor. I love the traditional Easter color palettes (like pastels), but I don’t have anything in our home that  would match that color scheme. I like to have my holiday decor blend in naturally!  This would look great with any color though, so you can’t go wrong! I love how the wood is still peaking out a bit as well. Gives it a lot more texture! How are you decorating your eggs this year, if at all? XOXO, Lidy Feel free to leave a comment!

Copper Wrapped Easter Eggs

If you haven’t noticed, I try to make the holidays as modern and simple as I can muster. I always want to have a little festive touch in the house, but in a way that will work and blend well with our decor! I decided to create these simple and modern Easter eggs, with a touch of bling!  What you will need: Copper foil tape Wooden eggs (or any material you prefer) What to do: 1. Collect your copper foil tape and wooden easter eggs 2. Begin to wrap the copper tape around your wooden egg, pressing firmly so it sticks nicely to the wood surface 3. Continue to create a design that you like, I kept mine simple and not too busy 4. Display your modern Easter eggs and enjoy – it’s so easy!  I love the pop of copper on the shelves! Because I love the look of wood and metal, I decided against painting my eggs. You could easily spray paint them a nice pastel color or even flat black and then wrap the copper foil for a little bit of a different look.  This is one way you can be festive this Easter, without having to gravitate toward all the traditional colors you see (although, there are some amazing colorful DIY Easter egg tutorials out there that I’m loving!). I do have another Easter egg DIY coming soon as well. Perhaps I will use a pop of color then! For now, what do you think of this simple Easter egg DIY? XOXO, Lidy Feel free to leave a comment!

DIY Danish Inspired Modular Shelving

It’s no surprise that my husband and I love Scandinavian and mid-century design! You’ve heard it all before, I’m sure. We have been slowly filling our home the last couple years with quite a few lovely pieces, like our dresser and Eames Rocker! We’ve been drooling over the amazing shelving units floating around the web, but had a hard time finding anything in our budget. So, we decided to make our own!  It took some planning, but we finally came up with a design that we loved. We wanted the shelving unit to be clean, simple and modern, which I think we achieved. The natural wood and white hardware fit in nicely with the rest of the living room decor. Our previous floating shelves always felt awkward and the placement was getting too old for me. But it was permanent, there was no way of moving those shelves! What I love the most about our new shelving unit is the versatility we get with the design. We can change the layout at any time, by simply moving the brackets and unlatching the shelf. I am going to have so much fun decorating these shelves, it just feels great having space to display all our little decor pieces! We are still in the process of building modular cabinets to install and add to our shelving unit.  Now that the shelves are up, I am looking for ways to utilize the shelving and wall space. I need some art and a few more colorful pieces to add – what do you think? Be sure to keep an eye out for the...

DIY Wood Triangle Necklace

Hello all and happy Monday! Today I’m teaming up with The Quarterly Collab ladies for another great compilation of fun DIY’s! Our theme? Jewelry! Let me first start by saying I am NOT a jewelry maker, nor do I pretend to be. But I put my best foot forward and looked at this as a fun opportunity to branch into this whole other area of crafting! I had a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy what I came up with!  What you will need: Wood (I used a combination of pine, walnut and oak) Table saw or scroll saw Drill press Sander Wood wiping stain Gold chain (any length) What to do: 1. Gather your supplies 2. With a pencil, measure your triangles (you can choose how big or small) 3. Using the table saw, cut out six wood triangles 4. Sand your triangles smooth 5. With your drill press, create a hole depending on the size of your chain 6. I created holes at the top (point) and bottom (flat end) of the triangle so they would all hang differently on the chain 7. Stain your triangles and wipe off excess with a rag 8. Take a fine sander and sand one last time to give it a nice glossy finish! Enjoy! I love how this piece turned out! It’s chunky and definitely makes a statement! At first, I wanted to paint a few triangles some fun colors to pop, but I loved how the stain brought out all the different patterns in each  triangle. Of course, I love how the natural wood plays with the gold metal. It’s...

Happy Spring my friends! I decided to do a fun little DIY to kick start this new season and Easter, which is just weeks away! I took a classic Easter piece and put a little modern twist on it: Easter Egg Cup Succulents! Because who doesn’t like a touch of gold?! What you will need (List and link below the post – so fun, right?!): Easter Egg Cups Succulents Liquid Gold Leaf Paint brush Tape What to do: 1. Gather your supplies 2. Tape off your easter egg cups 3. Carefully paint in the designated areas you want gold (careful, this stuff is SUPER thin compared to your usual craft paint) 4. Let dry and carefully peel back the tape 5. Remove your succulents from their planters and carefully put them into their modern egg cups! 6. Display and enjoy – all year round if you so desire!  This was such an easy DIY and SO much fun to do! I am loving this liquid gold leaf and I can’t wait to do another project with this stuff. It dries pretty quick too, which is a bonus! I love the look of the simple touch of gold with these pretty succulents. They are perfect on our living room shelf.  What do you think of making a classic Easter piece and adding a modern touch for your home? XOXO, Lidy  Feel free to leave a comment!

Clay Copper Leaf Banner

I recently discovered that there’s nothing wrong with mixing metals in your home decor! Which is great, because I am loving them all! Brass is amazing, but now copper is starting to make it’s way to the top of the list! It’s a bit more vibrant than brass I think, so it makes for a great accent color in your home decor. I decided to see how I really felt about copper by doing this super simple DIY!  What you will need: Air-dry clay ( I just used kids clay from Target!)  Copper leaf Copper leaf adhesive 2 Paint brushes (one for applying the adhesive, the other (should be soft) for removing the copper leaf)  Triangle cookie cutter  Twine or string Straw What to do: Roll our your clay to the width you want your triangles. Take your cookie cutter and begin to cut out your triangles. Take your straw and create two holes at the top of your triangles for the string or twine to go through. Let you clay dry completely. When it’s dry, take your adhesive and apply where you would like your copper leaf to stick. Apply your copper leaf according to the directions. Allow your adhesive to dry completely. Once dry, take your soft brush and carefully remove the excess copper leaf from your triangles. Simply pull your string or twine through the holes and hand up your new banner!  I think this adds a nice touch of copper to our home. It’s so simple, but still pretty fun! The clay is so easy to work with and the copper leaf is a fun little...

DIY Wood House Shelf

For the longest time I’ve loved this Dorm shelf by Ferm Living! When I saw a house shelf at Michel’s the other day, I was inspired to make my own until I could get my hands on the real thing!!  What you will need: Wooden House (Michael’s) Pencil Paint  Paint brushes What to do: 1. Gather your supplies 2. With your pencil, make an outline by tracing the divider in your shelf 3. Remove divider by carefully bending back the tiny nails 4. Get your paint ready – I used black, gold, light pink and white 5. Begin to paint each compartment a different color 6. When you are done let the paint dry completely and then return the divider to the shelf. Hang up and enjoy! This shelf is just the right size to display the kids tiny little dala horses! The backgrounds help them pop a lot more and I think it’s a lot of fun! I love the idea of having a non-traditional shelf, it always makes the space a little more interesting!  It looks great in any room in the house, but I specifically made this one for the kids rooms. I might have to go and get a few more! What do you think of house shelves for displaying your cute pieces?  XOXO, Lidy Feel free to leave a comment!
