DIY + Pink

Well things are exciting with my jewellery line Shh By Sadie at the moment! 
There's a new gallery and boutique opening this weekend called Matchbox Studios and I have my own 'cube' within it. 

Designers set out their cubes themselves, and so I was wracking my brains to think of a simple but cool way to display my jewellery. 

And I came up with this:

I bought wooden letters 's' and two 'h' and sprayed them PINK!
This was the first time I'd ever used spraypaint and it was so much fun. And the colour was perfect!!

This is how they came out - just one coat of pink!

A test-run in the house
And the finished product set up at Matchbox!
I wanted to display things prettily, but without cluttering it all up. So I think this works quite well. There have been quite a few comments on my display on the Matchbox Facebook page already! Yay!


The shop has its launch party this Saturday. I am tres excited!!!!
What's your proudest DIY moment?


  1. I love it! What a great idea. And so current.

    Sadly, most of my DIY moments turn out a bit wonky so I usually just limit myself to hemming thrifted dresses and skirts. They are usually wonky.

  2. nice DIY!! good luck with the launch party!

  3. You are just getting more and more creative! I love it! Cannot thank you enough for the custom necklace you made me - I love it so much! :)

  6. Sadie this is major having your own cube!!! I love the way you've set it out - the giant letters are perfect & show of your designs to their full potential. Wishing you loads of luck with the launch.
