I recently announced my participation in Pinterest’s Creator Fund over on Instagram, and I want to reiterate my excitement here! I’m so excited to share all of the projects I’ve been working on this month!
My entryway has evolved over the last year. I recently leaned into the tropical feel that was starting to take shape. Check out how I created my entryway!
I took two of the popular Ikea Ivar cabinets and hacked them until they were exactly how I wanted. Black metal legs add height and some contrast. I went with a mid-tone stain, Ipswich Pine. I’ve really been into tropical woods like teak and acacia, and this stain has a pretty finish that has a similar feel.
DIY gallery wall art
A small apartment calls for a small gallery wall! All of the art featured on my wall was DIYed, repurposed, or printed.

DIY basket lampshade
A simple project, I turned a rattan basket into a lampshade.
To do this, I used a craft knife to cut a small hole (just wide enough to fit my light fixture). I used a bit of superglue to seal off any loose ends.
A fiddle leaf fig brings life to the console and acts as a divider in my space. I love the bright green paired with a large woven basket.
The woven fan on my wall came to me in my monthly Something Special box from a Brother Vellies. This fan come from Kenya.
This tray is also a Something Special treat. Too cute, this tray brings a perfect pop of color to my console.
I love receiving a special gift each month. Many of the items work amazingly in my space as decor.
I hope my space brought you some inspiration for your space!
