Lucky for us, we have a few of Kalin's do-it-yourself projects from her Maui wedding. Being a stationer and all-around crafty gal, she is here to prove to us that you can pull off some pretty spectacular diy projects even if you aren't having a destination wedding.
We are going to start off with their antique doorknob table numbers, a knockout element to any table decor. We can already see this being a trend setting diy project for your wedding table. Photographed by Katrina Louise.
