Last weekend west elm opened their doors, pulled out the craft supplies and brought in local bloggers for a diy workshop. The event was inspired by erica domesek’s who is a style and diy expert and author of p.s. – … your’re invited. The idea behind the workshop was to take typical home accents and make them your own by infusing them with custom design. 
(my tray, book and scissors /  all the craft supplies set out for our workshop)
In the middle of west elm’s showroom, a small group of ladies crafted away, creating custom designed lacquer trays with paint, metallic washi tape and hopes of designing something special. My sister-in-law krista joined me for this workshop and we each walked away with a unique tray to accessorize our home. We had such an awesome time customizing our trays, posting pictures to instagram (#pswestelm) and checking out the new fall line in the store.
