Thrift Chic: DIY Chalkboard Serving Tray

Photo 5Have you guys been following along with my Thrifted Genius series in collaboration with Darling Magazine? I was so thrilled to collaborate in this series where I turned thrift store finds into fab new decor pieces. I transformed a glass liquor decanter into a lamp (here) and a frame into succulent planter (here). Click here to see how I transformed a vintage silver serving tray into a chalkboard, perfect for those home personalized messages.

Special thanks to Kasey of Kasey Jones, Ink. for the lovely chalk art. ( …my handwriting is pretty awful lol)

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!


Style Break: Darling In The Desert

Miss Kris Darling Magazine Sylvia Gunde Photography Palm Springs Desert 2I’m absolutely THRILLED to share my editorial feature on Darling Magazine. I feel in love with Darling some time ago and I was honored when asked to be apart of their website. While I was in the Palm Springs last week, Sylvia Gunde and I headed to the desert to shot this glamorous (and windy) editorial. I’m so excited that I finally get to share!!! Click here to see the full spread.

As many of you know I was a wardrobe stylist for yeeears before focusing on my blog full time. It’s been many months since I’ve style a editorial, but this project┬áre-energized and┬áreignited my love for the stylist life! Maybe it’s time for me to pick up my stylist kit once again. Enjoy!
