Thursday’s Theme: Sink Skirt Inspiration (and tutorials)

Thursday, April 25th, 2019

The sink skirt: a decorative and affordable way to hide unsightly pipes and under-the-counter storage space. It has apparently made a reappearance in home trends this year, although with many farmhouse and rustic home trends we often find ourselves thinking timeless decor never goes out of style! Anyway, we’ve rounded up a few lovely skirted sinks for inspiration, as well as three tutorials for making your own. Take a look below.

Tutorials

First up is Exquisitely Unremarkable’s sink skirt how-to. This one is unique because instead of removing cabinet doors under the sink, the skirt fabric is mounted to the doors. This technique is perfect if you prefer a swinging open over a sliding or velcro open, but still want that authentic skirted look.

Second is a velcro sink skirt from Life After Laundry. This particular one is made to be gathered, which gives the fabric a little more decorative appeal, but it could be left ungathered if you prefer. This tutorial is also a great reminder that skirted sinks aren’t just for the kitchen – they are perfect in a bathroom, too (around a pedestal or console sink, especially).

And third is the tension rod technique from HomeSpunStyle. This skirted sink requires a little more hardware but the result is worth it, especially if you opt for the pleats!

Inspiration

And here are some skirted sinks that caught our eye. If you’ve ever considered a sink skirt, or have one in your kitchen (or bathroom), let us know below and tell us how it has worked for you.

Monday Must-Haves: Storage & Organization (Winter 2019)

Monday, January 7th, 2019

Our latest Must-Haves list is all about storage and organization, and five new home accents from our Winter 2019 catalog. These items are decorative, but they also function as helpers throughout your home so you can stay on track, stay organized and keep your rooms as tidy as possible throughout the year.

This magnet board adds Americana charm and a place to hang important notes, grocery lists and even a photo or two on a wall of your home. The five star magnets are included, too.

This metal wall organizer coordinates with the above magnet board, although it will keep your organized all on its own. With five hooks and two envelop slots, this multi-functional home accent is perfect for a kitchen or home command center.

With the start of the new year, it’s time for a new calendar. This one is designed by artist Susan Winget and includes everything you need to hang it on a wall – besides a nail or hook. Keeping track of the days and weeks will be a breeze.
