Recession Design Le collectif de design italien Recession Design a conçu toute une ligne de mobilier réalisable soi-même, et dont les plans et instructions de montage sont gratuitement téléchargeables. Plus de 30 projets sont disponibles en ligne, sur le site Internet du collectif. Cette initiative, lancée il y a plus d’un an, s’enrichit au fur et à mesure de nouveaux modèles. Après s’être intéressés à l’environnement domestique, les designers ont également imaginé des modèles destinés au bureau, à l’école ou à l’extérieur. Recession Design

What's That ?! What's That ?! I'm looking at the picture, and I'm thinking to myself, "What's that ?!" The site is in french, but I knew the table was recycled and repurposed...but from what? Ready for this? Repeat after me...a washing machine drum! Made by Isa also has more great repurposed and recycled projects that you'll want to see.
I don't know about you, but handmade boxes and books fascinate me. I'm pretty sure it's because they so neatly combine variety with orderliness... think about it, the number of shapes and paper options with which to work is staggering, yet the end result is a tidy, useful object. Add arty to that description and you have boxes and books as made by Debra Glanz. all things paper all things paper

TetraBox Light by Ed Chew TetraBox Light by Ed Chew Liquid to Light Designer Ed Chew takes a green step in the right direction with the TetraBox lamp, a light object made from discarded drink packets that would have otherwise ended up in landfills already packed to the brim. The design is achieved by unfolding the packets and refolding them into hexagonal and pentagonal sections that are then pieced together to form a geodesic sphere or any other desired shape. Here, the Epcot-like ball makes an attractive overhead light and casts an impressive web of shadows and shapes on the surrounding space. Designer: Ed Chew

Today the weather was suppose to be nice and I had planned to be outside doing a little gardening. But the past two weeks, the weather has been poop, so I opted for an indoor project. Time to make use of the mason jars I had sitting in the garage. Just the usual mason jars, and a couple of small preserve jars. This is the poor mans way of doing things. One day, “As God is my witness, I WILL GET A CRICUT !” Mason Jar Tea Lights | Recaptured Charm Mason Jar Tea Lights | Recaptured Charm

The Brick House May 5th, 2011 I’ve been helping out Shelly Leer – aka ModHomeEc – with the design of her brand new upholstery workshop in Indianapolis. Shelly is a fantastic upholster and hosts classes to teach folks the ins and outs of fixing up and reupholstering their old forlorn stuff (a skill I can really appreciate). With this open warehouse space, one big design issue Shelly needed help with was figuring out how to layout and define areas for various work and private “zones”. She needed areas for tools, areas for storage, an area for a personal office, a waiting area, an area to teach and work with students and so on and so forth. Functionally, this one big room had to be used for many many purposes and still be open, accessible and of course look awesome. The Brick House
Want to do your bit for sustainabilty and have some fun creating useful crafty ideas - Re-purposing tires can get your creative juices happening. Tires are one of the most difficult items to recycle today. But a solution is needed. Millions of tires are dumped yearly at landfill sites or illegal deposits. Finding a new use for recycled tires helps the environment and it’s an easy way to make a tree swing or sandbox or tunnels for your backyard for hours of fun.

bike innertube wallet the backbone of the wallet: - choose a portion of the innertube that has writing or doesn't depending on the aesthetic you want. hipsters will want to stay away from brands and might stick to writing that includes the dimensions of the tube. professionals may want to avoid any kind of writing all together for a sleeker, leathery look. - cut the section of the tube that you want to use. - make a cut where you want to start, then measure 9 inches down the tube and cut again - do this twice - make another cut down the seam so the innertube is no longer a tube. ( i noticed i got a straighter edge if i cut at a side seam verses the top or bottom seam. - when you're done you'll have two opened pieces of inner tube ( see picture below) that measure 9 inches long by 3.75 inches high.
Add a burst of color to your room with this crafty pouf! At 17” wide and 10” deep, it’s large enough to serve as floor seating or a foot stool. (And if you have pets, I have a feeling they may want to make this their new favorite spot!) This project is a little challenging to sew, but it’s not too difficult, so if you’re comfortable with the basics of sewing, give it a try. You can make a colorwheel effect with a range of solid colors, or choose a variety of patterned fabrics for a louder patchwork effect. sewing 101: making a pouf
