My favorite Rattan Furniture

Rattan Furniture

I’ve been obsessing over this PINK VELVET CHAIR for months now.   I’ve been debating between the pink velvet or the light blue and the struggle is real!  They’re both so great and hopefully one day soon I can make up my mind!

I have this MIRROR and talked about it in a previous post but I love it even more in person than online, which I didn’t think was possible!  It looks so good being placed horizontally or vertically.

I was so pleasantly surprised when I found this WHITE PADDED DINING CHAIR.  It’s so simple and sleek that I thought it would have been double the price!

This RATTAN CHAIR is only $98 and would be cute paired with a pillow like THIS for a pop of color or THIS for a more subtle, light look.

I love this END TABLE and have it next to my front door.  I have it decorated with a white vase and some PAMPAS GRASS STEMS.  It’s a great price too!

I bought this COFFEE TABLE + SIDE TABLE set last summer and still love them just as much!  The coffee table is a great size and the side table is upstairs with a big vase on it.  They’re the perfect statement pieces for any room.

Currently obsessing over these DINING CHAIRS for our little breakfast table.  They’re so cute!

My sister in law has this COFFEE TABLE and it’s incredible!  If you want to splurge, which I suggest doing on big forever home pieces, this is a really great option!  It’s large and sturdy and adds that perfect touch to her family room.

Milo has this DAYBED and it’s on sale right now!  It’s a great price and fits a twin mattress perfectly.  I had been eyeing a much more expensive rattan daybed but when I found this one, I was not only happy with the price but I was happy with the style!  It’s adorable in her room.

If you’re looking for a RATTAN BED that’s not a daybed, this is it!  I like how the headboard isn’t overwhelming.  This bed is simple yet stunning.

I have had this LOUNGE CHAIR in my room for months now and I love it so much that I’ve decided to move it down into my family room.  I hated the idea of hiding it away where no one else could see it because it’s that good

Please take a moment to pause because this COFFEE TABLE comes in a size small and large and is such a great price!

This SIDE TABLE reminds me of palm fawns and I’m here for it!  I also really like the hard, white top!

You know how I mentioned a more expensive DAYBED I was obsessed with earlier in this post but I didn’t want to pay the price for it?  This is that daybed.  It’s really good.

I haven’t seen many side chairs with a pop of white and this SIDE CHAIR is everything.

This HANDWOVEN SIDE TABLE is amazing.  You can see all of the time and detail that was put into this thing and the price says it too.  It is expensive but it is one of those forever pieces.

I’ve seen some really incredible vintage RATTAN SHELF UNITs and this one looks just like them!  I love it so much.

I’ve been loving these WOVEN CHAIRS for almost a year now and I think they would look amazing on an outdoor patio!  That or in pretty much any room in someone’s house.  It’s basically a win-win.

It’s not easy to find a good RATTAN FLOOR MIRROR and this one nailed it!

I’m thinking about buying this STORAGE UNIT, not because I actually need a storage unit but because it would look so good in my bedroom.   I’m still working on trying to justify why I need it.. If you’re lucky and do need an extra place to store clothes when guests come or just to help tidy up around the house, this unit is it.

I love a good STORAGE CABINET  and this one is so cute!

This CHAIR from Serena and Lily is one of those splurges that you get and love forever!

Female Form Vase in color Peach I Face Vase (sold out but another one that I love)

I’ve been so excited to share the before and after’s of Milo’s bathroom remodel.  I justified to my husband that because it’s our little girls bathroom, we needed pink and gold tile.  But if I’m being honest, I’d be doing pink and gold tile in my bathroom in a heartbeat!  I love it even more than I thought I would and I didn’t think that was possible.  I found this tile from Concrete Collaborative and it’s available in several different colors.  What I loved most was putting together the pattern for the bathroom.  I first started with a large rainbow as the focal point then added on from there.  Overall it took me probably an hour and a half just to lay the pattern out for the entire bathroom because I’m a little meticulous, if you can’t tell.

We used an Ikea vanity and countertop and love how it turned out.  The vanity was a pain to put in, as you can expect when it comes to Ikea furniture, but once it was installed we have no complaints!  

I also put together an Amazon List with some of my favorite bathroom items including items that are pictured above.  Some of the items you will find is toothbrush holder, towel hooks, stool, trash bin, bath mat, sink faucet, oversized sink drain, etc!

DIY CLAY EARRINGS

I was surprised at how easy these earrings were to make!  In one sitting I was able to create 5 pairs.  I think that’s more earrings than I’ve had in years!

What you will need

  • Sculpey Clay in the desired colors you want for your earrings.  You can mix clay like I did below but it is always easier if you purchase it in a color that’s pre-made.
  • Earring studs and hoops.  If you have sensitive ears then make sure you purchase them in Sterling Silver.  The studs are hidden so if you have sensitive ears but like the look of gold and want the gold hoops, that’s not a problem!  You won’t really see the silver.
  • Clay Tools – used to cut out earrings
  • Clay Sandpaper
  • Clay rolling pin or you could use a glass bottle or cup.
  • Sculpy Glue– this is used to glue the earring studs onto the clay.
  • Sculpy Glaze– I suggest using this glaze on white clay products so that your makeup doesn’t stain your earrings.
  • Pliers

The craft store didn’t have the color I was looking for so I mixed the dark brown and light pink clay to create my desired color (see below).

* Finding clay cutters in some of the shapes that you want the earrings to be in does make it easier.  But you won’t always be able to find the exact shape you are looking for.

  1. Use your rolling pin to roll out the clay.  If you are creating a two piece earring using a hoop to connect the two, you will want to make sure that the hoop is big enough to fit around both of your clay shapes.  That being said, you also don’t want the clay to be too thin or else the earring will break!  Once you start rolling out the clay, you will see what I’m referring to.

2. Once you have your desired shapes, make a small hole that’s wide enough to fit the gold hoop at the bottom of one of your pieces (see above photo).  You will then take your second shape (this is the one that will be hanging at the bottom of the earring) and place a hole at the top of this piece.  These holes will be used to connect the two shapes using a hoop once the clay is cooked.

3. Place the clay shapes for your earrings on a glass baking dish.

4.  Using the Sculpey Bake and Bond you will apply glue onto the back of your earring stud and place it at the top of your first clay shape.  Make sure when you are placing your stud, the hole is directly at the bottom.  This will allow the earring to hang evenly when you eventually attach the two pieces.

5.  Follow the instructions on the back of your Sculpey Bake and Bond bottle and bake your clay.

6.  Let your clay cool then using your clay sandpaper, smooth the edges of your earrings.

7.  If you like the matte look on your earrings then leave them be.  If you want a little bit of gloss to keep them from getting dirty (I definitely would put it on your white earrings) then add the Sculpey Glaze.

8.  Using your gold hoops, connect the two pieces and your earrings are complete!
