Dining Room Update

Happy end of July, y’all! If you’ve been following the Blonde Boss Babe blog for a while now, then you already know just how excited I am to share this update to our dining room!

For the last 2 1/2  years, J and I have been using a table I bought during undergrad from another student. It had already been through a lot by the time it came to me, but it served its purpose and fit in our tiny condo so it worked for us. Then when we moved into the house we are in now, I really started hoping we could replace it with a set that would seat more people without overwhelming the space. Lucky enough, a local family moving across the state decided they wanted to buy all new furniture for their new home and posted this set online for a steal, which as you can see I jumped all over asap 🙂

Right now I’m trying to decide if I want to put a rug in here or leave it as is. Let me know if you have any opinions on what I should choose! I’m currently looking at this one & this one. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

DIY Gold Unicorn Memo Holder

 

Happy Wednesday, y’all! We are halfway through the week, so officially almost to the weekend (Woo!) Today’s DIY is SO fun for many different reasons – it can be used for holding pictures, encouraging notes, a to-do list, or even as someone’s placeholder in a themed party, the options you have out of this simple 3-step DIY are endless 🙂

To get started you’ll need:

Supplies 

Rust-Oleum Gold Spray Paint

Hot Glue Gun & Glue

Gold Paperclips 

Unicorns

 

 

Step 1: Get out your paperclips and plug in your hot glue gun! For this part, you can choose to either straighten out one side of the paperclip or leave as it is depending on where on the unicorn you want your clip to be. Once you’ve decided, glue it into place. Repeat this step with as many as desired.

 

 

Step 2: In a well-ventilated location (preferably outside if possible) begin spray painting your unicorn memo holders. Lightly spray the first layer, letting it set for about 10 minutes or so before continuing. Repeat until desired coverage is reached – after which wait about 40 minutes before handling.

 

 

Step 3: Decide what you will use your new gold note/memo/photo/place holders for! I’ve included some ideas below:

Dreamy Lace Teepee DIY

Oh my goodness y’all, today’s DIY is SO easy and fun & I’m super pumped with how it turned out in only 8 steps! The best thing about these trending little teepees is how versatile and customizable they are for almost any event or purpose. This one in particular is perfect for bridal showers, baby showers, reading nooks, pet corners, or even just for looking super cute in your living room or home office – priorities, right? This DIY teepee is super stable and requires no sewing and zero hardware. As J and I do not have children, and Toby is pretty small, I chose not to secure the wooden dowels with additional hardware. However, if you do have children in your home, I definitely recommend using a drill and adding hardware to ensure additional stability of the teepee. Ready to get started? Me too!

Supplies: 

Wooden Dowels  5/8″X72″ (4-6 dowels depending on preference – Can use 48″ height instead if preferred)

Lace Tablecloth 60″x20″

Twine & Scissors

Hot Glue Gun with Glue Sticks

Faux Roses, Leaves, & 6′ Garland

Safety Pins x 2

 

Step 1: Get out two of your dowels, and make an “X” toward the top. Wrap your twine around and in between the dowels, then tie a knot to secure them together. (If you aren’t sure the height you want your teepee to be, stand the dowels up and adjust the X before tying the twine around them)

Step 2: Plug in your hot glue gun (be sure to put a piece of cardboard or a couple paper plates under the nozzle so that glue doesn’t drip everywhere!) Dab a couple dots of hot glue underneath the twine on the “X” to secure the knot.

Steps 3 & 4: Stand up the dowels and add in the third and fourth dowel. Before securing, make sure the angles are what you prefer – then repeat steps 1 & 2 for each additional dowel. Add in dowels 5 & 6 following the same steps. Once all have been added, wrap twine around all of the dowels and secure with hot glue.

Step 5: Get out your lace tablecloth. Holding opposite parallel corners, begin draping the lace around the teepee frame. (One benefit of unfinished poplar dowels that is particularly awesome for this is that the lace will lightly catch on the wood – making it a lot easier to drape it around the teepee by without extra help!)

Step 6: Taking the two safety pins, secure the ends of the tablecloth together a few inches below where the teepee frame was tied off with twine. Don’t worry about the pins affecting the look of the teepee – they won’t show when you begin adding your garland and flowers.

Step 7: It’s garland and flower time – but first garland time! This is the really fun part, because there are soooo many different options here, from what colors you choose to use to what types of flowers/leaves you want to use, the possibilities are endless. Wrap the garland around the frame first before adding flowers. Slide one strand of it in between the dowels and allow each end to drape down the front of the teepee opening. Your safety pins should now be covered completely by the garland.

Step 8: Begin adding your flowers in! I used a couple of these sprays from Hobby Lobby, and then these long stem roses – which were so easy to secure thanks to tiny openings in the lace! Just take the stem and poke it through where you want the rose to be, then bend the stem so that the rose will stay in place. Continue with leaves and flowers until desired look is reached.

 

That’s it! Now you can stage and set up the inside of the teepee for whatever you choose! If using it as a reading or pet nook, some faux fur rugs (I love these) and a couple soft pillows are perfect to finish the look! If you’re using it for a shower or similar event, this teepee will be the perfect touch of rustic glam for photos, or even a very sweet spot to have guests place their gifts for the bride or mom-to-be 🙂

 

If you want to make the teepee opening a bit smaller, you can tie the lace off about a foot down from where you put the safety pin. Then add a flower or some extra twine to keep the rustic vibe going. Here’s what it will look like if you decide to do that:

 

By the way, Toby is loving this spot. Seriously, I can’t even handle this little nugget sometimes, he makes my heart so full – keep scrolling to see what I mean 🙂

 

Ugh all the heart eyes for that little pup. Are you completing this DIY with your own twist? I would seriously love to see! Please comment below or tag me in the completed project so I can see your dreamy new DIY teepee!
