This project has been a labor of love for sadly over two and a half years now! I finally finished the chair in September before we left for our vacation . I was determined to finish it because frankly I’m tired of hearing Mr. Woodsy complain about it not being done.
Name: Giovan and Chloe Polanco Location: Fashion District — Los Angeles, California Size: 865 square feet Years lived in: 1.5 years — rent Giovan and Chloe have embraced their downtown converted loft for all its natural light and a spacious floor plan. Using a bit of creativity and elbow grease, these two have creatively added DIY charm to their home by building their own closet and coffee table. Their style is a mix of vintage and estate sale chic put to good use in an urban loft. Chloe, a fashion designer and Giovan, a musician, both have a knack for finding random throwaways and refurbishing them into useful household products or decor. They were able to fit in a formal dining room table, using an old church pew for seating and they found an old card catalog filing cabinet and added a table top with legs to create the perfect coffee table.

Power Horses Bring an industrial chic look to your home office with a desk made from metal sawhorses, the support of choice in workshops and garages. After you prime them with a rust-inhibiting primer, paint them any color of your choosing, such as this bold cerulean blue. Add a shelf cut from medium-density fiberboard (MDF) for extra storage . Top the sawhorses with a desk custom-made from MDF, or simply span the pair with a salvaged or new home-center door.
It seems that we have to wait quite some time for all our belongings that we have shipped from Los Angeles, so this weekend I had to be creative and handy(!), so we can have a "home" while we are waiting... One of the things that I made this weekend was this dining table inspired by the lovely blog "Helt Enkelt" , and I´m very happy with the result. I got exactly the look that I wanted -rustic and cosy!

Hi guys. Sorry for the late post today. It took me longer than anticipated to write this up.
Remember yesterday when I said that I hate those carpeted cat trees? I do. I don’t know if I’d mind them so much if we had a bigger place, but we don’t. We have a tiny place. So having to find floor space to house a cat contraption is pretty much impossible.

d.i.y. wednesday: cardboard hack: two story cat climber These are pictures are of a two story cat climber that I just created using two of the same size cardboard boxes I had in the garage. Needless to say, the cats love jumping in and out of it, and the second story offers plenty of extra attack options. I used a gluegun, exacto knife and the two boxes--that's it.
Anyone else noticed a distinct lack of PHOTOS in their home? As a kid I spent hours looking through family photos. Sorting, resorting, picking out my favorites, choosing funny photos to display. We still TAKE loads of photos — with phones and digital cameras instead of on film — but they never make it to print. Offbeat Home sponsor Uprinting is here to save the day! They print anything.
You've all seen these invisible bookshelves, right? The books stack horizontally and and appear to just float on the wall. They look really cool, but they can cost a bundle. Fortunately, they're easy and cheap to make from simple L-brackets. A bit of careful measuring and making sure they're level, and you're ready to start stacking. Just make sure they're well anchored to the wall!

Charlotte and John didn’t believe this plain old $6.99 Goodwill coffee table could be anything more than mediocre. Little did they know that thrift stores, garage sales, and grandma’s basement are chock full of low slung coffee table castoffs that can be inexpensively converted into stylishly modern upholstered benches. And don’t stop there, more traditional tables with ornate turned legs, a jazzy ikat fabric and the right paint can be transformed into a handy mudroom, entryway, or upholstered bedroom bench. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
