DIY Painted Wooden Necklace

I love doing a project with natural wood supplies. It’s so fun to start — it’s like a perfect blank canvas and there are so many directions you can go to dress it up (or just leave it plain). These natural wood beads were calling my name and so I decided to whip them into […]

DIYs for HGTV

Happy Monday, lovelies! Dropping by this morning to share a couple of super-rad (tooting my own horn?) DIYs I did for HGTV’s summer how-to extravaganza.

DIY Painted Woven Basket
