Entryway : Coat Hooks

Hey budz. The entryway progress continues slowly but surely! Our house has a lot of good things going for it, but one of the things it doesn't have is a coat closet. Instead it has this really large (in proportion to our house) entryway that doesn't serve a whole lot of purpose. It basically consists of our stair case, a weird wall cut in half diagonally by the stairs, a bay of piano windows, and a bench seat that covers a radiator. These reasons are why it has taken me six years to come up READ MORE

Entryway : DIY Copper Plant Stand

Hey Guys! Hope all is well with yas. I've been doing a little webhost rearranging over here, and haven't had access to the site for the last few days. I'd appreciate it if you could please let me know (in the comments) if you notice any weird hiccups with the site. Thanks in advance on that one :) Okay fools, so I've initiated phase two of my DIY craziness. Believe it or not, I'm not a big fan of DIY when it comes to home decor.

Guys, Who am I? Two posts in one day? FTW! Like I said, I've been brimming with ideas for the house. The first was to customize this round mirror from Ikea.

Plus the frame of the mirror is made from wood so it makes it easy to modify, unlike some of it's metal framed counterparts. Also, did I mention the price, READ MORE

It seems like every summer I macrame a chair or two, this year I went a little buck and am up to two sets, that is four chairs my people!! It also seems like every year they get a little cooler too. I guess I'm just honing this craft. Anyways, I get lots of e-mails about these chairs, and I just wanted to show off this season's weaves while reminding the fine people of the internet that I have made two video tutorials on this subject (1 good one, and 1 kinda good one), as well as well as a written READ MORE

Guys! I'm back with the final installment of the girl-party-make-a-light-fixture post! My pal Nicole (aka Colz) needed a new light fixture for over her new black sink -- yep that one pictured above -- which makes its home in her incredibly awesome new kitchen! We made this brass beauty for her, and it looks amazing - I liked it so much I made one for my bathroom too. Also, don't worry! I will force Colz to share her kitchen with us once the tiling is finished up, and her cabinets are decked READ MORE
