Make it Friday: Clocks, Wood, Color, & Pattern


I’m gonna start with my usual opening: this week went by FAST! Holy moly, we’re almost in September you guys.

It was a good week for inspirational projects, some old some new, so I’ll skip the blah-blah and just dive right in:

Jeran of Oleander and Palm made this fabulous table runner to showcase the new Nate Berkus fabric line. I’m sold.

Francois et Moi’s leather and teak clock looks soooo high-end, but don’t be fooled, all it takes is two steps!

These ombre teacup candles by Miss Renaissance are just beautiful.

Another clock? What can I say, I’m loving these simple platter clock projects. Fiona of Craft Hunter shows us how to use a wood bowl and stickers to create this lovely wall clock.

If you are a sewist, would you please make me one of these gemstone zipper pouches by See Kate Sew? I can trade in cookies.

Have I ever mentioned that woodworking projects are my favorite? This simple dipped cutting board—using Plasti-Dip, which is apparently non-toxic!—is no exception. Also by Francois et Moi, who has clearly won my heart.

In a genius repurpose, Little White Whale uses temporary tattoos to update a plain plate. Awesome.

What’s inspired you this week? I’m off to Ikea to get some finishing touches for my living room—have a fab weekend!
