Popup Happy Birthday

By Ashley Page Norton

When I saw these silver foil Helvetica stickers, I knew I had to use them somehow! This popup happy birthday message would look great set up on a coworker’s desk or as a surprise somewhere around the house (like in a medicine cabinet or on top of a dresser). You can customize the message by adding the recipients’s name or changing it to say whatever you like. It would also be cute to mail them to a long distance birthday boy or girl – they can unscramble the letters and set them up wherever they want!

Oh Happy Day + Pottery Barn Kids

For the past few months, we’ve been having so much fun creating DIY’s for the Pottery Barn Kids blog, Building Blocks. I’m really proud of all the projects we came up with, so I thought I’d share some of the final photos here too!  For Valentine’s Day, we designed an awesome template for Paper Heart Boxes that you can fill with treats instead of candy. I love that this Pop-Up Paper Alligator template can be used for party decorations or room decor. Our Jumping Jack Easter Bunnies have legs and arms that actually move! And finally we showed a sneak peek of my Kids’ Room. (And don’t forget to check out my favorite items from the Pottery Barn Kids spring collection!)

DIY Easter Nesting Three Ways

by Kathleen Ballos

Have you dyed your Easter eggs yet? I usually dye mine on Good Friday and then set up my basket for the Easter bunny to find overnight. Plain paper nesting is available in stores of course, but why settle when you can customize your own to match your eggs and basket??

You Can’t Always Get What You Want

I almost titled this “Stop adding this stuff to your cart Jordan, you can’t ever have it.” We are starting to actually decorate the house (way more fun than redoing the electrical!) But lately I’ve found that I’ll narrow down my lighting options for the dining room and realize none of the tabs open in my browser cost less than $9000. Since when did my taste get so expensive? I’m a big believer in saving up for the one thing that is really special and makes your heart happy but $9,000?!?!?!? That is not happening. My father would roll over in his grave and send me another copy of “The Richest Man in Babylon” from heaven. No judgement to the people that can afford it (um…can I come over to your house and look at your light fixtures? ) Anyway, it’s still fun to dream about all the pretty things out there. What is on your dream list?

You can't always get what you want.

A. Lawson Fenning Chair (I think I would have it upholstered in linen.) B. David Weeks Mobile Light is gorgeous. C. This Cherner chair is so sexy. It’s like a sculpture. D. I love the clean lines and brass details on this Milo Baughman chair. E. This light fixture is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
