DIY Light Fixture : Brass Sconce

Dudez, ever since I made my first swing arm lamp last year I've been kind of obsessed with making my own lighting. I have now made three pieces for my home, and a few for some friends. Over the next couple-a-weeks, I wanted to share with you guys the light fixtures, including a parts list and some brief instructions. I have to say this because "DUR", but electrify at your own risk, bros. If you don't know lighting basics - STOP - don't do this. Please, only use a licensed electrician. I've READ MORE

DIY Plywood Hanging Planter

Hey Guys! I found myself getting uncharacteristically crafty this week when I was coming up with low cost ways to add some hanging planters to the front porch. Last summer I made a few macrame hanging baskets for the space (which I still love) but I wanted something for the other end of the porch because of my plant hoarding problem and all. Also, I think I'm finally recovering from the crazy amount of work I had to do in the basement and am feeling very, very ready to take on small easy projects READ MORE

DIY Pendant Lamp

Budz, I kinda like this new quick post method. Way less stressful for yours truly. There is so much stuff that I always want to share, but the pressure of the internet makes me feel like I should always present to you via some big, bad, epic post. How 'bout just a little tid bit? That works for me and makes it way more fun. Okay, so I am kinda obsessed with all the possibilities of making my own lighting after making the swing arm pendant a few weeks (eh, months) back. Since electricity READ MORE

Bench Cushion – Crushed It.

Okay pals! I'm getting so close to finishing up the basement, like almost, nearly, kinda there! I just got to cross a big sucker off the list, which only leaves me with a few easy tasks. I upholstered a piece of peach foam with some of my favorite fabric, and it turned into this very cool bench seat. Not only does this seat offer extra seating when we be hanging in the basement (which is always), but it also subs in as a bed, a stage for kids, and the best new addition to the basement. Can READ MORE
