Weekend Inspiration: No. 40

Weekend Inspiration: No. 40

I’m sad to say that I’m still feeling pretty rotten, so, again, I’m going to have to keep today’s post on the short side. I’m so sorry about that! It really is my favorite time of the year, and I’ve got so many projects I’d love to work on and stories I can’t wait to tell you about, but I’m just so exhausted. My eyes feel like balloons, and my nose refuses to stop running, so I think it might be best for me to crawl back into bed and see if I can officially kick this cold with a weekend of rest.

In the meantime, I wanted to share a list of the links that caught my eye this past week while I’ve been attempting to lay low between projects and deadlines. From cool home tours and interviews, to the one Society6 shop that I’d honestly like to buy completely out, it’s all below for you to peruse.

Weekend Inspiration: No. 40

1. This weekend marks the start of the last month of 2018—are you ready for it? Here’s one room makeover I’d love to pull inspiration from for our own home before 2019 kicks off in one month’s time.

2. Click through to the Society6 shop I hinted to above here. I really, really want this mural for our dining room.

3. I’m in love with Victoria’s California home. The eclectic look is actually making me reconsider my devotion to minimalist interiors.

4. There’s a TON of helpful coffee brewing information in this post from The Merrythought. I’m basically planning to live off their recipe for a simple maple latte this weekend.

5. Okay, who wants to buy me this diamond necklace for Christmas? I’m absolutely in love with it.

6. Thanksgiving may be over, but I have a feeling I’ll be using this guide to the perfect golden-hued floral centerpiece all winter long. Isn’t the final arrangement so gorgeous against that black backdrop?!

7. There’s still plenty of time to grab a handmade ornament for Christmas from the DGD Pottery shop! See what’s left of the collection here.

5 Mason Jar Christmas Gift Ideas

I’m so sorry to keep today’s post extra short and sweet, but I just can’t ignore the fact that I’m sick any longer. I need to take a bit of extra time off this week to rest and recuperate from whatever cold or sinus infection I managed to catch because I’ve got way too much on my Christmas to-do list to stay down for long. I’ve got peppermint lattes to drink, holiday lights to see, Christmas meals to eat, and shopping still to do! But all of that must wait until I get back to good health.

The good news is that my latest project for Oriental Trading Company was finished long before I started feeling under the weather, so I’m excited to send you right on your way to check out that extension of Dream Green DIY content today.

DIY Faux Evergreen Christmas Wreath

DIY Faux Evergreen Christmas Wreath

Confession: The DIY Faux Evergreen Christmas Wreath featured in today’s post has been on our front door since mid-October. That’s when I finished and photographed the project for my editor over at Hunker, and I loved the final wreath so much I couldn’t wait! I actually just paused for a second after typing up that admission to triple check my timing because I started to wonder if it really was as far back as October, and…yup! I submitted the story on October 22, which means that the wreath has probably been on our front door since October 19 or so.

At any rate, I was that smitten with the fluffy green texture on this faux seasonal wreath that I just couldn’t wait until after Thanksgiving to show it off. The cool thing, I think, about this project is that, depending how you style it on your door, the wreath kind of works any time of year. It’s so simple and minimalist, it would even complement a springtime entry when paired with things like potted flowers and a pastel door mat.

DIY Faux Evergreen Christmas Wreath

This cold weather season, though, I would suggest pairing the DIY wreath with a cheeky Christmas doormat (this one is at the top of my own wish list right now), and potted evergreen accents. You could even add a temporary bow to make it feel extra festive for the holidays.

Hop over to Hunker here for the full tutorial, and let me know how you’d style the wreath. Would you keep it exclusive to Christmas and winter, or could you see it working in your spring or summer entryway, too? Would you put it outside, or use it to decorate your home’s interior, like I demonstrated in these photos? Do tell in the comments below!

DIY Custom Photo Mug Rail For The Kitchen

*This post was sponsored by Snapfish

DIY Custom Photo Mug Rail For The Kitchen | dreamgreendiy.com + @newsnapfish #ShareWithSnapfish #snapfish

Okay, guys. No more stalling. If it wasn’t “officially” crunch time for Christmas shopping before, it definitely is now! With Thanksgiving 2018 memories in the bag, we’re turning our attention to crossing “gift hunting” off our holiday to-do list.

We actually keep things relatively low-key among our two families (John’s immediate family and my own) by agreeing to gift one item apiece to each other, but it’s still a task we take pretty seriously. We hate the idea of giving gifts they don’t really need, so we think long and hard about what we can give them that serves a purpose. The number one item on that list? Coffee!

This season, I’m teaming up yet again with my favorite folks over at Snapfish to show how you can treat the coffee lovers in your own lives to something fun (and functional!) this holiday. Scroll on to learn more about the custom photo mugs and other kitchen accessories I put together as experiments for gift ordering later this month, plus the step-by-step tutorial for our new DIY coffee mug rail in case you really want to wow them come Christmas morning.

First, the mugs. This was my first time ordering custom mugs from Snapfish, and I’ll admit that I was a little worried about being able to find designs among their pre-built templates that would suit our mod, clean-lined aesthetic. I’m not a big fan of ultra bright patterns, but I was excited to find out that that’s not all the website offers in terms of templates.

I was able to choose four really simple designs for our mugs—one with John’s initial for his daily cup of coffee, a wood-look labeled design with my own name on it, plus a couple of custom photo mugs with our engagement pictures printed on them.

I actually kept my cart open in its own separate tab in my browser so I could refresh it every time I completed a mug design and added it to my collection. That way I could be sure that the photos and designs I chose would look good together on display in our kitchen. That might be a little too OCD for everyone, but it worked for me!

Oh, and I should mention that the interface for creating custom designs was super easy to use, too. The do-it-yourself layout allows you to get really creative with multi-photo arrangements, and, whether your style is classic like ours or punchy (think: chalkboard designs, metallics, and even botanicals), the site has plenty of design options for you to play around with.

It’s also a cinch to upload your own photos to the product builder. You can pull directly from places like Instagram, Facebook, and Google Photos, which saved me so much time. If I hadn’t had that option, I would have had to dig out my external hard drive to access the older photos I wanted to include. Being able to pull from my social media accounts saved me at least an extra half hour of hassle.

DIY Custom Photo Mug Rail For The Kitchen

Now for that DIY I promised! I wanted to figure out a way to really show off our new collection of custom kitchen items (did you see we also picked up a custom tea towel with our last name on it?!), so I built a quick DIY Custom Photo Mug Rail to go under our new open shelves. Scroll on to learn how to recreate the project.

DIY Custom Photo Mug Rail For The Kitchen

DIY Custom Photo Mug Rail

Step One: Figure out how long you want your rail to be. I ended up using a 1/2-inch unfinished copper pipe for my rail because we already had it handy, and I also really liked the look of the patinaed copper against our wood shelves with their matte black brackets. The rod was already cut to a size that worked for us (34 1/2 inches long), but if you need to trim yours down a bit, you can use a pipe cutter, like this.

Step Two: Next, choose your spot for the rail, and mark where you’d like the hooks to go that will attach it to the underside of your shelves. I used three 1-inch white hooks to support our copper rail, spacing them roughly 12 inches apart from each other under the shelves. Mark where your hooks will go with a pencil, pre-drill the holes, and then screw the hooks in place.

Step Three: Slip your rail gently through the hooks, making sure that it feels strong and sturdy. If you feel like the rail needs more support, screw in a couple more hooks between the others.

Step Four: Loop S-hook hangers over the rail, and then slip your custom mugs right over the hangers to allow them to swing freely for easy grabbing in the morning.

NOTE: When figuring out where to hang your rail, make sure you keep it away from the wall by at least a few inches. Otherwise, the mugs could bang into the wall and break.

We love how the custom collection turned out (it’s such a treat to see them swinging there on our DIY rail every morning!), so I’m definitely planning on ordering more to give to friends and family this Christmas. Wouldn’t they make for the perfect personalized stocking stuffers? I vowed that this would be the year that we finally find functional gifts that look cool, too, and I think this idea definitely nails that criteria.

What types of personalized photo gifts would your family like? I love trying to think beyond the standard photo gift (remember my custom ’12 Reasons Why I Love You’ photo book from last year?), so if you have any clever ideas, tell us about them in the comments below. Whatever inspiration strikes your fancy, be sure to use the code ‘SANTA40‘ now through December 31, 2018, to enjoy 40% off your order sitewide.

Happy Monday! I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving if you celebrated the holiday last week. John and I filled ourselves to the brim with delicious food (think: turkey, mashed potatoes, homemade dinner rolls, pie), and were so grateful (of course!) to spend lots of quality time with both of our families. Isn’t the holiday season just the best?!

Well, I’m ready to kick things off in real festive style this morning as I tumble right into the countdown to Christmas with a brand new collection of handmade ceramic ornaments. I actually started putting this collection together back in October, and even though I felt like I was jumping the gun a little bit starting them that early, I’m really glad I did because the ornaments took lots of careful detailing over the course of several weeks.

First, I cut the shapes, cleaned them up, and then laid them out between boards to dry. Then, I spent a couple of hours carving out designs on each one, and, later, came up with a plan for glazing them in my favorite earth-toned color combination. After that, it was just a matter of actually following through with my glazing and firing plans, then I added super strong leather hangers so that you guys can eventually loop them onto your Christmas trees. Phew! After all of that, I was ready to photograph them and list each and every one of the 22 ornaments in my Etsy shop for you to peruse.

See the full collection over on Etsy now, and feel free to let me know in the comments which one is your favorite. If you have requests for different shapes, quotes, or patterns, I’m always open to ideas, so shout them out below and I’ll hoard those requests for next season.

I couldn’t be more thrilled to be able to offer these exclusive holiday designs, and am even more excited to see where they end up this Christmas. I hope you’ll share a photo or two on social media if you decide to add one to your own tree next month!

DIY Paper Christmas Tree Centerpiece

DIY Paper Christmas Tree Centerpiece

Since Thanksgiving is tomorrow, I feel like I have full license to turn on the Christmastime charm, and I’m kicking things off with a brand new holiday project for Hunker: DIY Paper Christmas Trees. These colorful bendable cuties take just 20 minutes to make thanks to a printable template that I included in the full tutorial here, and the best part (at least I think so) is that they store flat when the holiday season is in “hibernation.” Just fold them at their cross sections, slip them into a sturdy folder, and then hide them away in a box with the rest of your Christmas décor.

Visit Hunker for the full step-by-step tutorial, including that Christmas tree printable I mentioned, which, honestly, takes at least half of the time and hassle out of this project. Of course, I can’t take much credit for that time-saving tool—whoever invented printable PDFs is my favorite human.

Speaking of favorite humans, I’m headed out of the office this afternoon to spend the rest of the holiday week and weekend with family, so I’m going to take this opportunity to wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving (if you’re celebrating) and I’ll see you first thing Monday morning—cheers!

Thrift Store Score: Round Coffee Table

Thrift Store Score: Round Coffee Table

Ever since adding a sectional to our family room, I’ve had my heart set on a round coffee table. I just felt like something round would suit the L-shaped couch so much better than a rectangular one because we could scoot around it easier when we wanted to have a seat on the sectional.

The problem was that we were already using a rectangular ottoman as a coffee table, and I was having a lot of trouble convincing John that we needed to get rid of it. The ottoman was in fine shape, but I still felt like the space could look and function better with something different.

After months and months of dropping hints, I finally figured out a solution. I was able to “get rid of” the ottoman simply by moving it into the room that John uses to tie flies and listen to music. That way he gained the perfect spot to lounge and read his fly fishing magazines, and I now had a blank spot for a new coffee table—win, win!

Thrift Store Score: Round Coffee Table

Thrift Store Score: Round Coffee Table

As you probably already gathered from the post title and photos, I ended up finding the perfect new-to-us vintage coffee table for the room. It came from a semi-local antique store (in neighboring Staunton, Virginia), and cost $135.

I had actually gone to the store planning to purchase a different retro round coffee table that had been in the lower level of the shop for over a year. I remembered seeing it there ages ago, and thinking back then that it could be just right for the family room. I couldn’t recall the price, but I thought it was something like $125. When I finally got to the antique shop and was able to take a closer look at the price tag, though, I found out that it was listed for $175. That was a little out of my price range.

I thought about asking if there was any wiggle room in the price, especially since the piece had been there for more than a year, but this particular store isn’t very amenable to haggling, so I pretty much decided against pursuing the table within a couple of minutes.

Thrift Store Score: Round Coffee Table

I headed back upstairs from the lower level of the store with a pretty dejected attitude, but decided to press on and wander through the rest of the space to see if anything else happened to jump out at me. And there she was! The perfect mid-century round coffee table with an even better silhouette and gorgeous finish. The one I had been considering downstairs had metal legs and a tile top, whereas the second one I found was solid wood and coincidentally stained to match the paneling (which we love) in our family room.

I felt like it just had to be too good to be true, but a quick peek at the price tag showed me that it was well within budget—marked $135, down from $165. Sold! Within 10 minutes I had paid for the new coffee table and packed it away in my car destined for the family room. Luckily, it fit perfectly into the blank space left behind by the old ottoman, and it’s now one of our favorite pieces in the house. Even John agrees that it was the right way to go now that he can see it all together.

Thrift Store Score: Round Coffee Table

Isn’t the finish just beautiful? It’s a Lane Furniture piece, which is another serendipitous detail in the story because we have a small collection of vintage Lane furniture scattered throughout our house. I especially love the two-tone wood look, and the angular support underneath.

I couldn’t be happier with what we ended up getting, and am actually really glad that I had to wait as long as I did to convince John to let me look around for something new because that’s how we ended up with this beauty. Got a Thrift Store Score story of your own to share? Do tell in the comments!

How To Install & Style Open Kitchen Shelves

How To Install & Style Open Kitchen Shelves

One of the very first things I hung in our house when we moved in three years ago was a set of open shelves in our kitchen. There was this one section of cabinetry and countertops off to the side of the space with the perfect patch of blank wall above that practically screamed for open shelving. Luckily, I had a set from IKEA that I had previously used in my old studio, so it worked out really well. The only problem was that the shelves were on the smaller side and not the same width, so they ended up being a little more decorative than functional.

It worked for several years, but this fall I found myself craving more. I wanted to be able to load the shelves with extra plates, bowls, and glasses, not to mention canisters for dog treats, coffee pods, and other kitchen-themed goodies so we could make more room in our overstuffed cabinets.

Well, three years later, and we finally managed to cross “install bigger open shelves” off our to-do list. You may have seen the full reveal of our mini kitchen makeover earlier this month, complete with that brand new set of upgraded open shelves, and today I’m back to talk about how I actually installed them. Scroll on for the full step-by-step tutorial, and then feel free to head over to Hunker where I’m offering a numbered guide to styling kitchen shelves, too.

How To Install & Style Open Kitchen Shelves

How To Install & Style Open Kitchen Shelves

Here’s What You’ll Need:

1. Level

2. Stud-finder

3. Pencil

4. Power drill and bits

5. Heavy-duty screws

6. 6 metal brackets

7. 2 1-inch-by-12-inch-by-48-inch wood common boards

How To Install & Style Open Kitchen Shelves

How To Install & Style Open Kitchen Shelves

Step One

Start by using a stud-finder to locate the studs behind your drywall. If you plan to load your shelves up with heavy dishes and glasses, like we did, you’ll need to attach your brackets right to those wood supports behind the drywall to ensure a strong hold. Mark the studs with a pencil, and repeat for however many shelves and brackets you plan to install. For this demo, we installed 2 shelves over 6 brackets—3 brackets apiece.

How To Install & Style Open Kitchen Shelves

Step Two

Hold your first bracket up to the wall over the marks you made at the studs, and mark through the screw holes onto the drywall with your pencil. Repeat again for however many shelves and brackets you plan to install, using a level between each bracket before making your marks so you know you’ll have an even shelf when finished.

How To Install & Style Open Kitchen Shelves

Step Three

Drill through the marks you made using a power drill and bit that matches your screw width. Then, hold the bracket up over the holes, and use the drill again to screw the hardware into place until the bracket feels nice and snug. Repeat across all brackets.

How To Install & Style Open Kitchen Shelves

Step Four

Lay your wood common boards across the brackets so that they’re centered across the brackets. You may choose to screw yours into place, but the weight of your dishes and glasses should keep the wood from shifting in the end. We still haven’t screwed our boards to the brackets, but they haven’t budged.

How To Install & Style Open Kitchen Shelves

As you may have noticed, we decided to leave our wood raw for now, but will eventually give it a clear coat stain to make it water tight. There’s no big rush on that now, though, since they don’t come into contact with much (if any) direct moisture.

These upgraded shelves feel so much more grown-up and functional than the old IKEA set ever did.

Weekend Inspiration: No. 39

Weekend Inspiration: No. 39

Happy Friday! What are you getting up to? I’m actually headed out of town this weekend for a mini getaway with my sister, so please keep your fingers and toes crossed that I don’t hit a ton of traffic. I imagine most Thanksgiving-related travel is happening next weekend, but I’m still a little anxious about making the trek south. I almost always end up in some kind of nail-biting gridlock on the way to her house, so I’m honestly not holding out much hope.

We’ll see, though! The college football tickets, margaritas, and brunch plans I have waiting for me on the other side make the traveling bit worth the hassle. Scroll on for a quick roundup of links to inspire your own time off this Saturday and Sunday!

Weekend Inspiration: No. 39

1. Here’s one of my favorite DIY paper projects ever if you’re planning to break out your craft supplies this pre-holiday weekend.

2. Did you hear that Megan, of the Fresh Exchange, launched a shop? I’m smitten with her debut collection of handmade items. Check everything out here (I bought a plate and hand-dyed napkin!).

3. I’m about 15 pages away from finishing my favorite book (for the up-teenth time, of course). What’s your favorite book of all time? I’m in need of recommendations now.

4. This modern DIY napkin holder is so pretty. I’d love to add it to our table before Thanksgiving, but don’t think I’ll have time to make it before Thursday. Bummer! Hopefully you do.

5. I posted on Instagram the other day about how I was considering painting my office a bold dark color, and a lot of people suggested an accent wall. Now I’m falling down the rabbit hole of inspiration images wondering what I should try. Let me know in the comments if you have a favorite type of accent wall treatment that you’d recommend.

6. A freak ice storm earlier this week has me online shopping for updated outerwear. I wish I could pull off the ‘Royal Cobalt’ version of this gorgeous coat! ‘Warm Caramel’ might just have to do.

7. Juuuuuuuuuust in case you’re opening yourself up to full-on Christmas mode, this video is full of cute craft-able gift ideas.

Designing Around A Molekule (Plus A Review!)

*This post was sponsored by Molekule

Designing Around A Molekule Air Purifier | dreamgreendiy.com + @Molekule #ad #mymolekule

It has been more than a year since we added a Molekule air purifier to our home, so I figured it was the right time to share an update and a review. I also wanted to talk about ways to design your space around a Molekule, so I put together a full mood board inspired by this ultra cool, mod device.

But let me step back for a moment before I get into all of that. I know the idea of an air purifier isn’t the sexiest topic of conversation, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised by this particular one—not only in the way it functions (which, of course, is key), but also the way it looks. You all know better than anyone that I care a lot about how things work within our home from a decorative standpoint, and I’m happy to report that our Molekule looks good in every. single. room. No exaggeration!

Designing Around A Molekule (Plus A Review!)

The main reason we decided to work with the Molekule team on this post (and the first one) was because we really do believe in the technology they built the device on. We have three cats and a hound dog, all of whom are indoor pets, so we’re constantly battling things like dander, dirt, and litter dust. Gross.

Needless to say, John’s allergies got pretty bad, especially when we moved into our home back in 2015. Our last house had a central heating and air system, and we were always really good about replacing the air filters, but our current ranch has no central air system at all. Instead, we rely on baseboard heaters and a collection of wall- and window-mounted AC units. Because we don’t have central air, we don’t have a way of filtering the air in our home, so we eventually figured out that we needed to run dehumidifiers and air purifiers to help keep our air cleaner and healthier.

Designing Around A Molekule (Plus A Review!)

Since setting our Molekule up in our master bedroom last year, John’s been able to sleep better and has felt much less stuffy. We still have to dust, of course, but I find that our air purifier helps cut that down so we have to break out the microfiber duster less often. The Molekule uses two filters to help purify your air, and you can sign up for recurring deliveries of your filter replacements so that you never have to worry about remembering to replace them each season.

The other thing I love about it one year later is the fact that it’s so mobile. I’ve moved the thing from our bedroom, to the guest room, to the office, to the living room, and back again. Whenever I feel like a certain space smells kind of musty, I just use the touch screen to turn off the device, unplug it, and lift it by the handle to move it into its new space.

Designing Around A Molekule (Plus A Review!)

As for the looks factor, I hope the mood board at the beginning of this post and the photos of it set up in our living room (its current location) are enough to prove that the Molekule is one of those types of functional pieces of equipment that you won’t mind seeing out in plain view. Since I don’t suffer from allergies, myself, I’m admittedly more enthused about the purifier’s looks, and the sleek lines and minimalist color palette just speak to me.

Designing Around A Molekule (Plus A Review!)

So, are there any cons? To be totally and completely honest, not really. It’s not the least expensive purifier you could buy for your house and the filters are a little on the pricier side of things, too, but it’s one of the best devices you can buy on the market, and if you have allergies in your family like we do, then the investment is worth it. You can also sign up for monthly payments to help spread out the cost of your new Molekule, too.

Another question I get asked a lot is if the purifier is loud. My answer is yes and no. There are three settings you can put your Molekule on: Silent, Auto, and Boost. It’s probably pretty self-explanatory, but here’s a very brief rundown of each. Boost is great for a particularly dusty, musty space, Auto is perfect for everyday use, and Silent is a great setting when you want to run the machine at nighttime, when you have company, or certain situations like that.

Boost is the only setting that is sort of on the louder side (kind of like a hair dryer, but still on a really low setting). Auto is a soft hum that you get used to with everyday use and won’t notice at all after a while. I would definitely not characterize the machine as loud. As with any type of air purifier, just be prepared for a little white noise, but this particular one is very modest and blends right in with other daily sounds.

Designing Around A Molekule (Plus A Review!)

As I said, the Molekule is a pretty big investment, and we are extremely grateful that we were given the opportunity to test the product in our home because of the blog. That said, I’m certain that we would have bought this air purifier out of pocket if it had been necessary. I could clearly go on and on about the sleek, beautiful design, but it really makes such a difference with the air quality in a home, too, so I have zero qualms about encouraging you guys to look into the device to see if it’s a good fit for your home.

You can find out everything you need to know on the Molekule website here, and feel free to revisit my first post on the topic here to learn more about the purifier’s technology and our first impressions of its impact on our day-to-day lives. Questions? Leave them down below and I’ll make sure to answer everything I can—if I’m unsure, I’ll reach out to my Molekule contact to get you all the details you need!
