DIY Update | Anthropologie Wall Organizer Hack

August 9, 2016

Update this DIY Anthropologie Wall Organizer Hack | Fish & BullThe beginning of a new season always feels like a chance to hit refresh and start over. Even if you’re not headed back to school this fall, it’s time to get organized again and get into work mode! Do you guys remember the Anthropologie Wall Organizer I made for Brit + Co? It’s still one of my favorite DIYs —it was so easy to make (no power tools!) and it’s still going strong. I wanted to give my wall organizer a color upgrade to fit my style and repainting it was so simple.

If you want to give this DIY update a try, take a look at my tutorial for this Anthropologie wall organizer hack, if you haven’t already. It’s a simple project and it’s so useful for storing random clutter or cute little office supplies like washi tapes that are easy to lose. To give it a color update, you’ll need a paintbrush and acrylic paint in your chosen colors. So easy!

Update this DIY Anthropologie Wall Organizer Hack | Fish & BullLoad your paintbrush with your chosen color and paint a box, including the sides. You don’t need to use painters tape around the box — just paint carefully  and slowly to stay in the lines. You will need at least two coats of paint and you’re done.

Update this DIY Anthropologie Wall Organizer Hack | Fish & Bull

As a craft blogger, my work space is in need of a major intervention so I’m slowly adding more storage solutions. I’ll be sharing more DIYs with you so we can all organize our studios/workspace/dorm rooms together!

July 28, 2016

DIY Flamingo Marquee Light on Brit + CoThere are two things that are ON FIRE right now — marquee lights and flamingos! So when I spotted this Flamingo Marquee Light ($50) I had to create a DIY copycat version on Brit + Co that was more, shall we say, budget-friendly. My version of the DIY Flamingo Marquee Light is a surprisingly simple project and I’m in love with the end result. It’s pink, it’s bright and it lights up my life! It’s all on Brit + Co.

Psst, have you seen my other DIY copycats? This wall art and this desk organizer is for those of you, like me, who have champagne taste on a beer budget.

DIY Pom Pom Blanket on Brit + Co

July 23, 2016

DIY Pom Pom Blanket on Brit + CoDo you have basic white bed sheets that could use a little upgrade? I was inspired to give my bedroom decor a colorful makeover with a simple DIY pom pom blanket — they’re pink, they’re fluffy and they’re HUGE! I shared this tutorial on Brit + Co and the finished project is one of my favorite DIYs.

BUT I want to keep it real with you, my blog readers, sooo these pom poms started falling apart pretty quickly 🙁 UGH the frustration, we were finding little yarn bits on the floor every morning! It could have been that I didn’t tie the yarn tightly enough or the type of yarn I used or that pom poms should only be on items that are used lightly. Who knows?! All that said, I really loved the way it looked so I’ll try again by adding pom poms on a throw blanket this time with stiffer yarn and I’ll definitely tie it up real tight! If you’re a brave soul and you want to try this DIY, it’s on Brit + Co.
