Today's DIY project on HGTV Handmade will help you get your stuff together, quite literally. Just in time for back-to-school jams for any of you who are heading to a dorm room, and for us "grown ups" who are missing the new school supplies that August and September once promised, we can kick our desk-game up a notch.

Lucite is everything. It's clean, fresh, it's like it's NOT EVEN THERE. Perfect for small spaces and absolutely a fantastic supply to get your DIY on with. Last week we organized our jewelry with it, and this week on HGTV Handmade we are using lucite trays to hold + display our favorite little items while displaying our favorite vacation photos. I've been to California every month for the last 3 months. I should get a Bi-coastal badge or something. What I DO have is a collection of California dreamy palm tree pics that I am dying to bring into my New York City apartment.
Today's DIY is the perfect solution!

Summer is in full force with vacation photos filling up our feeds and making me just a little but jealous. I've been hard at work on some really exciting projects with some incredibly talented and lovely human beings. I've also been cooking up some exciting plans for MACC, my YouTube channel that has been a little neglected as of late. Not for long! I'll fill you in on each job, video, and project as they roll out, and in the meantime, let's catch-up on the DIY-front, shall we? I last shared with you my DIY Botanical Heart Art, since then you might want to check out:

+ I'm OBSESSED with this Swell wallpaper by Aimee Wilder. The whole Bungalow line is incredible, but this design and color combo is just really on my wavelength, man.
+ I take advise from Kelly Wearstler to heart, so if she says we need these 5 art books, then we do.
+ I ordered these Outsider Pants about a month ago and they rarely leave my bottom half. Pants that make you feel naked but leave you covered are my fav.
+ New App Alert: EWG // This is my jam. It lets you search or scan your cosmetics, suntan lotion, etc to see how toxic they are. Since cancer-causing agents lurk in many of our favorite brands and there is just too much information on the web to retain, this quick and easy guide is a crucial step in protecting yourself and your kids from cancer-causing hormones and ingredients. Arm yourself!
+ REMEMBER HOW I SWAM WITH A SHARK. (exhale)

This week's HGTV Handmade DIY project takes the breezy, beachy look of driftwood and brings it to an illuminated place with an easy tutorial that leaves you all aglow.
Put this together in 15 minutes and enjoy all summer long with your backyard BBQ's and chill get togethers. Environmentally-friendly, KID-friendly, and totally dreamy, this bad boy has been giving our balcony all of the romantic vibes I want.
