Thrifted Genius: A Miss Kris + Darling Magazine Series

PhotoGenius?!?! Who me?!?! lol Well I guess so… according to Darling Magazine anyway. I’m so excited to team up with them on a really fab new DIY series. A combination of two of my favorites things in life… thrifting + crafting (throw in a cocktail and I’m in heaven). Once and month through the end of the year I’ll be showing the Darling Magazine readers how to easily transform an inexpensive item you thrifted from the thrift store into your new favorite decor piece.

My latest project was turning a vintage glass decanter into a uber chic lamp. Seriously this project too all of 5 mins to complete and is so elegant looking. Click here to see just how I did it. Stay tuned to Darling Magazine for all the Thrifted Genius projects. A few weeks ago I made a fab succulent garden out of an old frame (here). Fun stuff!

VIDEO: DIY Lucite End Table

This project has been on my DIY to do list for MONTHS! The materials have just been sitting in a corner collecting dust, but I’m so excited I finally got a free moment to create this luxurious lucite end table. I’m obsessed with these acrylic frames you can do almost anything with them… end tables, purses, etc. I’ve been eying a lucite table from One King Lane for months, but just can’t afford it. What do you guys think of this faux lux alternative?!
