I love using my hands to create things. And while I probably design something new every day, I am usually designing things behind a computer screen. Unless; it is one of those good rare days where I get to dab on watercolor and paper all day long. So when I partnered with Project Nursery to create DIY projects for them, I was thrilled. Every month, I come up with a do-it-yourself project, a décor hack, or a simple craft or a styling tip. For a while now, I have been eyeing these minimal metal shelving systems. Do you know which ones I am referring to? That ladder shelving mid-century inspired trend I get to see on so many magazines that pop in my mailbox these days. So, when I was thinking about my next DIY project, I dared myself to make one of those gorgeous shelves. And boy, how I liked the final result.

The other day I fell in love again. Remember when I was crushing over this sexy light bulb here? This time around a custom pillow was the one to blame. As I was brainstorming about another DIY project for Project Nursery, I decided to create a custom pillow. Since I didn't want to have to sew it, I went ahead and bought an affordable cushion cover. I thought about dying it, but for some reason, that wasn't really inspiring me. So then, I decided to try a more graphic and geometric look. That's when my heart smirked at me. To see how I painted this lovely custom pillow, visit Project Nursery here. There you will read the step-by-step instructions, see the other cute pattern I created, and get inspired by a gorgeous baby boy nursery. PS: to see more DIY projects visit here.

Spring this year came a little sooner than usual. Then it kind of waved us goodbye again and the temperature dropped. But now, it is officially Spring and that gets us thinking about outside dining, cookouts, and afternoons by the pool. I have been wanting to hand dye a couple of home items for quite some time. From placemats, to throw quilts or pillow cases. So, the other day I wore my plastic blue gloves and finally did it. Making hand dyed indigo napkins is a fun way to add more pattern and color to the table setting making the next mealtime a little extra special.
Materials1- Napkins (you can order the same ones I used here, or use what you have in your home) 2- Tie dye kit (I recommend this one here because it comes with the dye as well as a couple of tools, like the rubber bands, gloves, popsicle sticks and square wooden pieces) 3- Clothespins 4- Large bucket
