DIY :: Leather Wall-Mounted Catchall

DIY Wall-Mounted Leather Catchall | coco kelley

I’m always on the hunt for items to help organize and declutter my home, so when I stumbled upon this leather wall-mounted catchall I almost purchased one, buuuuut, I really wanted it in black. So, a couple weeks later, when the piece was still on my mind I decided to try my hand at making it myself! Not only did it cost way […]

      I totally should’ve specified! I punched two holes in the back and screwed it into the wall. It’s very secure and supports a lot of weight. If you’re looking for a less permanent option, you could always punch a couple holes and tie a wire or string to the back (like a frame), and hang it on a nail.

DIY :: FLOATING WOOD + BRASS SHELF WITH BUILT IN LIGHT

Whether you own a home or rent the smallest apartment in Manhattan, we all have those nooks that are in need of two things – lighting and a little storage – where furniture just won’t fit. So, when we saw a brass version of this floating shelf with a built-in light we decided to take on […]

    What a lovely shelf idea! My guy has really taken an interest in lighting – actually, I shared a floor lamp DIY this morning! I’m going to have to show him this shelf, I know he’ll love it.

DIY :: PRESERVING PLASTER + A CHALKBOARD WALL

preserving plaster and building a chalkboard wall | DIY via coco kelley

When you’re renovating an old house, you’re bound to find something exciting behind layers of peeling paint. But the colorful plaster I found in my son’s bedroom of our 1905 fixer was beyond my expectation. I love the look of exposed plaster – we saw it earlier this month in the kitchen of this Swedish […]

    I love everything about it: The exposed plaster, the half wall of chalkboard paint so your little one can freely write on a designated wall, the benign woven taureau (I live just north of Spain, and bullfighting and all that taureau-mania exists here, in its own French form), the gorgeous bed. An entire chalkboard wall could have been too imposing, too dark in the space. But half is fine! And I am having serious plaster thoughts myself. The numerous layers of wallpaper have been removed in most of our 17th century apartment, and the plasterer has started to repair and smooth the walls for painting. Part of me likes the walls as is, but there are so many really big repairs (like all-new wiring, placed in pipes in the walls, rather than strung down the walls and around the floorboards, like so many extension cords). Sigh.

    Love everything about this room! Couldn’t think of anything more fun for a toddler than a chalkboard wall in their room. Thanks for sharing!

VALENTINE’S COCKTAIL :: THE PINK LADY

party favor gift back DIY | coco+kelley

In typical coco+kelley fashion, we can’t properly celebrate a “holiday” without a cocktail. Regardless of your relationship status or views on Valentine’s Day, I personally think it’s a great excuse to get together with friends and celebrate love. Not in the sappy, romantic sort of way… but in a fun, ‘I’m thankful you’re in my life – cheers […]
