IN FOCUS: DIY STYLING By Nicole Kow
We’ve recently been working on building our Youtube channel to bring you more content. If you have yet to visit, you can click here. One of our new features is quite close to my heart – DIYs. It is always a joy brainstorming about creating pieces from existing products. DIY projects tend to look daunting on the onset and many aren’t sure how to place it within the home but it doesn't have to be. In our second installment, we feature another two projects which you can make yourselves and how you can then style the finish piece into a home setting.
DIY Project 1: Decorative Marble Tray
A light-weight alternative to the marble tray which can be made in a jiffy! Instead of using real marble, a sheet of marble printed vinyl can give you the same feel. Click on the video above for the full tutorial.
How do you style it?
With your completed tray, there are an array of options to display. One way is to decorate it with some icy ornaments upon a cabinet or console. Similarly, it can be decorated with a book and candle placing it on top of a runner above your bedding for a luxe feel.
DIY Project 2: Image to Wood Transfer
If you love displaying photos in your home, this is the tutorial to watch. Instead of opting for photo frames, go for a more rustic approach with wood. With just a few materials, this project is not just easy to do but it is a lovely weekend project to do in a group as well. But do note that the transfer only works with laser jet prints. The finish piece also makes a treasured memento as a gift to your loved ones (tune in Christmas music). Watch the step by step process by clicking on the video.
How do you style it?
Once your photo or photos are ready to be displayed, there are endless possibilities to styling them. Place a single photo on a side table or set up three alongside on a long cabinet. Alternatively, add on a hook on the back of the photo and hang them up on your wall. And if you are already thinking of Christmas, smaller wood pieces could be used as ornaments on your tree.
