Today, I’m coveting a new vignette for our sofa table in the living room. It is very unfinished and blah right now. I need something better for this small surface!

Succulent DisplayI saw this pin on Emily Henderson’s blog and I instantly loved it! I’ve wanted to plant some succulents for the house for a while now and this vignette is perfect. Our sofa table is white too so I love seeing what it would look like for us. You could be seeing a copy of this very soon!

So, the Olympics? They’re amazing and everything but they took up all of my attention and time! I would come home, make dinner and sit on the couch every day after work. The weekends were worse. If I had to leave, I would immediately come home to watch more people doing athletic things I can’t even dream about doing. I had big plans for some big projects to get done during the past two weeks but…Yeah.

So now it is time to get those creative juices flowing again (isn’t this a great picture? Thanks, Pinterest) and work on some projects at home! I have several in the works and several more started in my head.

To get back in the groove of things, I started small with this tray for my small jewelry and accessory pieces. I wish I had a large dressing room that had room for something like this but I don’t. Luckily our bathroom counter is very large so there was plenty of room for a pretty tray that got even prettier with a few updates. The tray used to be black and was a very old Target purchase. I spray painted it white and cut a piece of navy chevron fabric (the same I used for the DIY lampshade in the kitchen) to bring some pattern and color to the bottom of the tray.

The two bottles I use to hold my bracelets are the same ones I used for our 4th of July tablescape last year. Yup, they are just beer bottles spray painted white. White and spray paint can make anything pretty! The ‘S’ plate was a Christmas gift and is a wonderful John Derian plate. It is perfect for my stud earrings and extra rings. (The rest of my earrings are hanging on my DIY window earring hanger in our closet) The yellow pillar candle holder was a clearance purchase at Pottery Barn several years ago and adds a nice splash of color to this arrangement.

This was the best kind of project to start with because it cost me $0 and took about 15 minutes of arranging, re-arranging and shopping the house. You can’t beat that! Have you done any fun ‘fluffing’ projects lately?

Displaying Kids’ Art

I saw an article someone posted on Twitter last week and I immediately sent it to my friends with kids. I absolutely loved the ideas that were featured in the Top 20 Art Displays for Kids Art!

This would be a great DIY project. Doors and windows are always at antique, thrift and second-hand shops. Punch out the glass and replace with chicken wire and start clipping up your child’s favorite art projects!

West Elm has a cable system like this and it is a great idea for an awkward or blank wall in your home! This is a great idea if you like to constantly change out the artwork or if you have multiple children, each child gets his/her own row!

This one is my favorite! I love the use of the same frames in a grid pattern. (I think I may also be partial to the wall of blue wood wall and capiz shell chandy!) Using the same white frames with white mattes helps pop out each piece of art and really make them a focal point.

So which one is your favorite? Check them all out here.
