8 Weekend Projects to Try

This weekend, Jeff and I are planning to start packing around the house (because we’re moving) and maybe even bringing a few things over to the studio that are most definitely not going to fit in our new place. We still have a couple weeks to go, so we’re trying to get ahead if we can. Fun stuff over here.

But if you’ve got a little more time on your hands…say…enough time to DIY a thing or two, I’ve got you covered! This week’s DIYs to try is a good one. Click through for all 6 ideas!

1. a before and after dining room table + chairs from Hey Wanderer
2. DIY gym ring hanging lamp from Fall for DIY
3. color blocked DIY pillows in geo shapes
4. turmeric dyed textiles
5. thrifted nightstand DIY makeover from Room for Tuesday
6. a simple DIY shelving unit from Sinnen Rausch
7. chicken enchiladas from designlovefest
8. giant banana leaf art idea

P.S. If you’re in the mood for Valentine’s Day DIYs, I put together a big roundup of my favorite projects earlier in the week.

Hope you have a happy weekend!

Man, that shade of turmeric yellow is absolute perfection!

This is the second time this week those chicken enchiladas have popped up in my feed. I think it’s a sign I should make them. 😉

Also, that thrifted DIY nightstand is SO cute!
Thanks for the ideas!

I’m surprised that the turmeric-dyed fabric is so bright, but then the root will stain your fingers yellow of days. Are the fabrics colourfast though?

I can’t wait until I get my own place – mainly so I can try out the decor like the things above! I’ll just have to do the enchiladas this week



I hear that Alexis. Those enchiladas looks so good!


I love the lamp, but the enchiladas look amazing!

You totally should Sophie. And if you do, let me know how it goes. 🙂


I want to make the color blocked pillows.


Thanks Corina. Ashley and I made that together and it was really fun. I’ve been wanting to do some prints like this again, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. One day!


Wow! The giant banana leaf artwork is really something!

Totally agree with you Michelle. The gym ring is so clever and easy!


I’m in love with the gym ring lamp, it looks so cool! Great picks!
