DIY Acrylic Dinosaur Bookend

There are dozens of variations of the plastic animal bookend, but this version may be the easiest, chicest one yet! Back when I lived in Germany I bought a bag of 20+ vintage plastic dinosaurs and have been trying to decide what to do with them ever since! About a year ago I purchased a few $5 acrylic boxes from Amazon for makeup storage and one of the lids broke. Put them together with a little spray paint and you have a piece of modern, kitschy decor! I’m thinking about finding a larger glass or acrylic box, topping it with…

Hallows Eve Cocktail Bar Decor

Many times before have I mentioned my aversion to overly-decorating my house for holidays! However, the two little things I will decorate are my mantle and bar/coffee cart. The best thing about this Hallow’s Eve themed bar cart makeover is that almost none of the items are “Halloween” specific, so there’s no need to search high and low all over town, or the internet, for the perfect pieces!

You may be lucky enough to find a set of these black-edged shams at HomeGoods or the like, but I haven’t been so fortunate, and I’m unwilling to pay $50 -$120 for a set of these chic shams. So we’re going to DIY them! Adding ribbon boxed shams is a fast and cheap way to elevate and personalize your bedding.

Wine Cork DIY Decor

We’ve all seen the Pinterest and blogger obsession with wine cork based DIY projects. Most of them are quite good ideas, but if you don’t drink enough to corked beverages to amass the amount of corks needed for any of these projects, please do not be one of those people who goes out and buys a bag of corks from Michael’s. Just don’t. However, if you love the idea of cork decor, but don’t have enough for a large project (i.e. you’re not an alcoholic), than this DIY is for you! For this DIY you will need: 12 oz. square…
