DIY Marble Top Desk Tutorial & A Peek at R.K.C. Southern HQ!

DIY Marble Desk Top Tutorial

You’re probably thinking, “I’ve already seen this! EVERYONE is doing it!” 💁 That may be so, but *I* haven’t done it yet, and not all of you read the same blogs and see all the same Pins, so maybe this blog post will have some helpful, new information, even if it’s only new to one of you!😂

A few years ago I showed y’all how I “marbleized” my office magnetic boards and updated an old CD rack to live a new life as a shoe rack using marble contact paper. Since then, the contact paper I loved so much has been discontinued, so this “marblizing” DIY does contain a new project, as well as a link to some currently available marble contact paper!

50 Shades of Gray Paint

For the past month (since temporarily closing my Etsy shop) I’ve been receiving frantic e-mails and DMs from brides in desperate need of sequin hangers and gold foil graphics for their wedding websites! Y’all know I’m trying to move from Germany to America and remodel a several thousand square foot house too, right?! Well I remember what it was like to try to plan a wedding (I planned mine in 3 months!) and I couldn’t handle to desperation in you sweet bride’s messages anymore! I opened the shop back up yesterday and have since received 47 custom order inquiries! You ladies are the BEST! Now, I told all of you though that your orders are not going out till July 13th but that didn’t seem to deter any of you (bless your souls) so I will work hard to get those hangers and graphics out to you ASAP if you will all keep being patient with me 🙂

I thought you might like to see a little peek at my temporary work space though! My home office space was one of the first rooms I had painted and really love the deep grayish blue it turned out. The color reminds me of the sea after a storm. The entire house is painted different shades of the color you’ll see in the photos below. So yes… 50 shades of gray haha!
