DIY Mylar Containers + Win a $75 Gift Card to West Elm

By Brittni • posted on 07/07/2021

DIY Mylar Containers

Right now, my mind is somewhere in between January organization and Valentine’s Day projects.

Which is probably a weird dance for my brain to be doing, now that I think about it. But no matter, because I’ve combined the two in a new DIY that is part office organization and part V-day celebration. Mylar Striped Ceramic Containers.

The full tutorial is over on my friend Chelsea’s blog, Lovely Indeed, but I couldn’t let the day pass by without sharing a few of the photos.

Scroll down for a chance to win a $75 West Elm gift card, at the bottom of this post!

Aaaand…since this post is related to organization and the new year, I thought this would be as good a time as any to ask you to take a teeny tiny survey for me, if you don’t mind. It won’t take long (promise) and you can skip any questions you don’t want to answer.

Bonus! If you fill out the survey, and then enter via Rafflecopter below, you could win a $75 West Elm gift card! Giveaway prize is open worldwide. Just fill out the survey before entering.

Your survey answers will help me make this blog better. And aside from that, I just really want to get to know you a little bit better. Like whether you’re a dog person or a cat person. Cool?

Fun giveaway! I’m doing the dance between immediate january goals (finish my room [it’s been sitting unfinished since november. NOVEMBER]! organize the pantry! set up a communal office area!) and long-term goals (overhaul my wardrobe, re-think my career goals, etc etc) so i feel you there. I love both cats AND dogs, but my current animal pal is a bun named Taylor Swift. We have a good time together.
