DIY VANITY TRAY

DIY VANITY TRAY

I love this little DIY so much, and think it turned out pretty well. It is relatively easy to create, the most difficult part of this project is patience! Believe me, patience is important otherwise your tray will FALL APART the second you pick it up. You must, must, must leave it for at least a day (or two) to dry. The glue is strong, but not unless you let it cure for a few days. I had to redo the attachment process two times, so just be sure to let it dry once everything is perfectly attached, and do not attempt to lift the tray by the handles (they are decorative mostly). Another great thing is how few supplies you need to actually create this. You don't have to spend a lot of money upfront to make this DIY, I think I spent about 20-30 dollars total. If you have old drawer pulls that you can paint, or already have a strong glue or a tile, you can spend even less. So let's get to it!

DIY GOLD LEAF ABSTRACT ART

DIY GOLD LEAF ABSTRACT ART

So a few months ago, I went crazy with a diy abstract art obsession. I tried to paint anything and everything in sight, and attempted a gold leaf abstract painting. The problem was, I didn't have any gold leaf on hand. So I used gold spray paint. The results were underwhelming at best. So I lost interest in that and put it to the side in my living room.
