A while back, I bought a little desk trinket at Anthro, on sale for $9. Total impulse buy consideringI wasn’t a big fan of the green malachite base. But I really liked the brass wire that formed the hand, so I brought it home and refinished the base to something more my style. Concrete anyone?! And now, I totally love it.
Here’s how I transformed a $9 sale piece into my new favorite DIY desk accessory. Before photos after the jump.
A while back, I framed up a few pieces of art that I’d been meaning to get to for the longest time. And I got some questions on Instagram about where I source my frames, since pretty much all of the frames I use are a medium to light tone wood and a very particular depth.
I had never thought about how hard finding good ready-made frames were until multiple people asked. So, I thought I’d put together a quick list of where I shop for the ‘perfect’ wood frames when I don’t have the time or patience to wait for a custom frame job.

A while back, I bought a couple of Block Shop napkins at a local shop with the sole intention of using them as fabric for a sewing project. Napkins and tea towels are perfect for small projects when you can’t get yardage in designs that you might find. I do this all the time!
Anyway, at the time I had no idea what I wanted to use the fabric for, but more recently decided one of the patterns would be super cute as a baby bib. They’re napkins, so they’re absorbent enough to use for a project like this, and the pattern was too cool to resist. Here’s how to make a super easy DIY bandana bib for babies and kids.
