An Easy Color Blocked Mirror DIY for the Entryway

This post is sponsored by 3M. All opinions are my own and additional products used in the project were selected by me.

I’ve been noticing a trend lately that involves using color in a transparent way and became over-the-top obsessed with this idea. I put together a new Pinterest board to keep track of it and everything. So, I started playing around with a few ways to incorporate transparent, see-through color into a home decor DIY and landed on today’s project.

I’ve partnered with 3M and ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape to share a color blocked mirror DIY that literally couldn’t be any easier to recreate at home. You don’t even need a paint brush, so it’s perfect for any skill level. And no, that’s not spray paint. There’s a bit more to it than that. Curious?! Click through for the tutorial.

Punch It Up: A Pineapple Mango Rum Punch Recipe Inspired by the Caribbean

A week from tomorrow, Jeff and I are headed out on an eight-day cruise! I’m so excited to get away for a week and just relax without being so tied to my computer (although I’m totally bringing it – I’m not that crazy).

And to kick off our upcoming vacation and celebrate the fact that tomorrow is World Cocktail Day (!!!), I partnered with Carnival Cruise Lines to share a cocktail recipe inspired by our upcoming travels. It’s a pineapple mango rum punch and it’s kind of my new favorite cocktail. So good! Click through for the recipe and a few deets on our upcoming trip.

Make It Mini: DIY Marbled Mini Vases

I was playing around with oven bake clay the other day and attempted a project that went completely wrong. It was bad! Has that ever happened to you? So, I started packing it all up and stumbled across something entirely different that ended up being kind of fun. And it’s today’s DIY…

I made these teeny tiny little containers for organizing odds and ends, holding flowers / plants, etc. You can add magnets to the back and hang on them on the fridge or leave them as is. I’m using them for office supplies rn, but I feel like they’d be a cute last-minute Mother’s Day gift idea too. What do you think? Click through for the tutorial.

Planter Banter: A DIY Metal Planter Makeover in Under an Hour

A DIY Metal Planter Makeover in Under an Hour

I feel like I can’t get through a week these days without talking about planters in some form or another – whether they’re to buy or to DIY. But I couldn’t resist (at least) one more planter project for spring. Especially because this one is just as easy as the hanging planter project that so many of you loved. AND it involves making something old new again, which I’m also pretty partial to these days.

I teamed up with Rust-Oleum to share my rusty planters and how I made them new again with Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Protective Enamel spray paint. Bonus! These little guys fit right in with a contest the brand is kicking off that you might want to take part in too. It’s DIY related of course and you can win some awesome prizes. Click through for all the contest details AND my before and after makeover for an old set of planters that needed a reboot.

Behind the scenes at the Paper & Stitch studio

There’s been plenty going on behind the scenes lately, with shoots and apartment makeover stuff. And I’m hoping to get started on a kitchen remodel for the studio soon too (eeeeee!). So, there hasn’t been a whole lot of time for cleaning and organizing, which means this behind the scenes post has a healthy amount of obligatory messes. I’ve said it before and I’l say it again – it’s not a mess, it’s a lifestyle. 🙂

Before and After: My Teeny Tiny Balcony Gets a Much-Needed Makeover

A colorful balcony makeover for a teeny tiny space

Before heading out for the weekend, I wanted to share a little outdoor seating area / balcony makeover I just finished up. Which seems to be just in time for a few cocktails for Cinco de Mayo and a whole lot of sun this weekend.

I teamed up with Annie Selke to show off their newest Palm Springs Collection. And it was totally the kick in the pants I needed to actually move forward with getting our outdoor space put together.

Our balcony was incredibly boring and neglected before – we hardly even went out there because there wasn’t even a place to sit down. But now it’s a functional space for us to hang out and get some much-needed vitamin D when the sun is out. It gets so much afternoon light. Click through for all of the before and after photos.
