DIY ~ Pyramid Stud Wall Decor

Hi lovelies!  I feel as though my condo is in an ever-changing state of decorating.  I'm constantly reassessing what I've done and what I can still do to further incorporate my glam mountain resort condo theme I've chosen.  I have this empty space above my desk that is the backside of the kitchen (is it bad that I use my dining room as my crafting room rather than it's intended use?) which I've struggled with for years.  I hung some foam core board to use as my inspiration board, but the plain spot of wall between that and the ceiling has perplexed me.

I finally had a brainblast (Jimmy Neutron fans? Anyone?) and thought that I wish I could just put some huge pyramid studs up there.  So I hit my recycling bin, dug out some cardboard, and got to work. {Click to keep reading, and to see how I made these!}

DIY ~ Dirty / Clean Dishwasher Magnet

Hi lovelies!  Today I've got a fun yet super practical DIY for ya, in partnership with Finish Dishwasher Detergent!  I can't tell you how many times I've heard the excuse from my kids that they couldn't put their dishes in the dishwasher because they weren't sure if it was dirty or clean.  I'm sure everyone can relate to this, whether it's kids, roommates, or even yourself!  So I wanted to make a magnet so that way there'd never be any uncertainty again (unless one forgets to spin it or something!)

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty brand-loyal for dishwasher detergent.  I only use Finish products, because they friggen work better than any other I've tried.  I even use the Booster in conjunction with the tabs so my dishes are extra clean.

You just put it in the pre-wash dispenser, pop a tab in the main dispenser, and you're good!  It's so easy, my kids have to do it as part of their chores.  But that's after we can get them to rinse off their dishes in the sink and load them into the dishwasher.  I wished there were a way to let them know if the dishes were clean or dirty, and I figured a fun and easy DIY!  {Click for the how-to and for some awesome #SparklySavings on Finish Detergent!}
