MY FIRST DIY POST ON ABOUT.COM HOME

.

I'm so excited to let you know I am now a contributor for About.com's home vertical! 

I met About.com editors Jeanine Hays and Bryan Mason of AphroChic at the Blacks In Design Conference this Summer and was super elated to chat with them. I've followed and admired their work for quite some time so having a conversation was dreamy! We spoke about design and at some point I expressed my love for DIY projects. They we're really interested in seeing my work and after a lovely conversation back in NYC, I agreed to create DIY content for About.com. I was a bit nervous about the opportunity but more excited and grateful than anything else. Thank you for the space to share my perspective on DIY Bryan and Jeanine! 

This first project is a DIY marble-inspired coaster with gold leaf edges. They really fun to create and can be done in one weekend! The coasters add a touch of glam with the gold edges yet provide a modern feel with their organic shape. Head over to the post to see how you can create these beautiful coasters!
