This past weekend, I decided to test my DIY skills (who says I’m not crafty) at a DIY Graphic Lacquer Tray Workshop at West Elm. The event was to celebrate the new book “P.S. – you’re invited” by Erica Domesek, the crafty gal behind the popular blog P.S. – I Made This.
These West Elm Heirloom gold scissors are adorable. Yup, they went home with me too.
Sarah from West Elm gives us a demo. Outline the tray with your design (in this case, slanted triangles) and then use the sponge brush dipped in black chalkboard paint to carefully fill in. The paint takes about 10 minutes to dry.
My neighbour, Vanessa from Modern Mix Vancouver outdid everyone at the table by making this bling-worthy design.
This was West Elm’s (Vancouver) first in-store event, they’ll be kicking off a series of events this fall/winter.
