Whether it’s a counter, dresser, or table, most men like to have a designated spot to keep their keys, wallet, and phone. Why not add some style to that tried-and-true spot with a DIY leather valet? Dabney, whose husband enjoys working with leather, shares at Apartment Therapy how easy it is to make your own valet with basically just an X-acto knife and rivets. Dad will love the functionality of it, and what says manly like leather?!?
Amanda from A Hammer & Heals almost wrote this zebra jewelry dish off as a DIY fail. However, after taking a little breather from the project, Amanda came back with a clear head and completed her playful catchall for only a fourth of the designer price. Like Amanda says, the fun of DIY is being able to customize the project to your liking, and I love how she put her own spin on it with the gold and turquoise color scheme!
Heather of Setting for Four loves decorating her house with beautiful bowls and plates. Throw in Kate Spade’s “sophisticated yet playful” style, and Heather’s totally smitten! Heather replicated the look of Kate’s Confetti Collection on a plain white bowl using reinforcement stickers and nail polish. The stickers made for perfect circles with zero fuss. While this lovely dish can definitely be year-round, Heather points out that the touch of pink is also perfect for celebrating Valentine’s Day.
