diy | gold & white inspiration board

I'm breaking the radio silence!  It's good to be back after the longest blog break I've ever taken.  These past several months have been crazy and honestly I felt a little uninspired to write here, so a break was needed.  I'm excited for new upcoming things though and hope y'all will enjoy them also!

So now for a fun little DIY....

This week Courtney of Pizzazzerie (a fun party blog that is also Nashville based) revealed the before and afters of her blog office we've been working on over the past few months!  You definitely want to go check out the full reveal here!  (She was even nice enough to share sources!)

I'm always interested to see what pieces are the clients favorites when a room is complete.  Well Courtney's was seriously the easiest and most inexpensive DIY I've ever used in a project, so we're sharing it here.

Being a blogger (or anything in a creative field) means inspiration boards are a must.  One of her 'wants' was a large bulletin board.  There are several out there to choose from but they all seemed to have one of two things in common...budget breaking or fugly!  So I DIYd less than an afternoon....

1. A basic cork bulletin board (we used one that was 36x48)
2. White spray paint (we used high gloss)
3. Gold Leaf Rub n Buff
4. Painters tape
5. Microfiber towel or old rag
6. gloves (not a necessity but I rather not have gold fingers!)

1. Tape off the frame of the cork board
2. Apply 2-3 even coats of white spray paint on the cork (obviously can use another color)
3. Remove tape
4. Rub n Buff the frame (per their instructions)
5. Voila...hang your new fabulous board and think of all the money you saved!
**The awesome thumb tacks we used are these!**

on trend | luxe family game night

Have you noticed the reoccurrence of classic games being updated in luxe versions?!  Think luxury family game night.  I have been super impressed with the new spin on pool and ping pong tables at some of the past markets...but what if you don't have a full on game room and still want to incorporate this trend into your decor?  Yes, I said decor...obviously these pieces can be used to actually play games...but many of them have the details that allow them to double as art pieces.

I also recently watched a video that was talking about this exact trend and how it shows with our lives being over consumed with electronics, ect. that many people crave the classics, no batteries required! While also forcing you to have actual conversations with people....not just through your phones!

Does he come with the game?!

we're now live on chairish!

Today I am sharing some exciting news that has been a long time in the making...I have debated starting some sort of vintage furniture and decor site for a long time.  If you know me you know how much I love incorporating vintage pieces into design.  Its my favorite way to add pieces that not anyone can go out and buy from a local retailer or order through the trade.  So as of this week Mallory Shaw Design is now live on Chairish.  

This is something I am super excited about and I hope you all will enjoy too.  New inventory will constantly be updating so make sure to check back often.  Also if there is a particular piece you are on the hunt for let me know as I am constantly out sourcing.

giveaway // lilly pulitzer for target

This past weekend I braved the wanna be Black Friday that was the Lilly for Target launch.  (I was not crazy enough to wait in the line wrapped around the building in the rain)!  Of course I was more into the home stuff and was all about the gold and white!  

So I'm giving away one of the gold and white outdoor blankets...perfect for your upcoming picnics...or honestly..just in your house!

Head over to my Instagram (@malloryshawdesign) to enter!
