a diy dresser for the nursery and beyond...29 Jun 2016

DIY Striped Dresser

Our Creative Producer & Stylist, Julia, has had this dresser in her home for over 10 years. Her husband purchased it as his first "adult" piece of furniture. It's moved with him through several different apartments and now finally into his current home with Julia and their baby Zealand. Hoping to bring new life to the old dresser, Julia wanted to "Oh Joy it up" by refinishing and repainting it for her baby's room.

happy friday + san francisco!24 Jun 2016

Rifle Paper Co. San Francisco Print

We're keeping our summer trip this year low-key and rather than going too far away, we've decided to head to San Francisco at the end of the summer for a little R&R. We haven't been there as a family since Ruby was 7 months old, so it will be nice to be back with two walking kids to explore the city!

For those of you who live in the Bay Area or are familiar with the area, I would love any recommendations of places to eat, things to do with the kids, places to shop for inspiration, etc. Any and all suggestions are welcome. Thank you in advanced!

Have a great weekend!

what to do with leftover wrapping paper...22 Jun 2016

wrapping paper collage DIY

We all have scraps of wrapping paper leftover from those gifts we've loving wrapped and given. Sometimes you buy a roll of beautiful paper only to see leftover slivers get tossed in the trash. So we created these colorful and (super easy to make) pieces of wall art using those scraps that won't go to waste again!

We created a few different collaged pieces using a variety of wrapping paper scraps and put them in frames afterwards to make them feel more elevated.

You'll need:

-wrapping paper scraps

-a frame

-foam core

-mod podge & paint brush

-gold leaf kit (optional)

Here's how:

1. Group your wrapping paper scraps by color and compile together a combination that you like. We recommend sticking to a certain color palette so that it feels more cohesive than a mix of all colors.

2. Tear the paper into strips and shapes of your choice.

3. Using mod podge under and over each piece, paint a thin layer over the strips of paper, and mount them to foam core that match the size of your frame. Continue to layer until you're happy with it.

4. Pop the piece into the frame and display! We left the glass out of the frame but you can use with our without the glass on top.
