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.

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?

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
I'm impressed by the creativity in transforming a ready-made Ikea chandelier into something really spectacular. Pearl Street Interiors posted a detailed DIY requiring few materials. The Ikea PS Maskro fixture, gold paint, amuse bouche plates and some adhesive work together to create a unique and inspirational piece. Cut, paint, glue and snap the pieces together to create this stunner!
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.

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.
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.
Make Your own Tire Sandals Adapted from Participating in Nature: Wilderness Survival and Primitive Living Skills I'm hard on shoes. It's not uncommon for me to go through half a dozen pairs of shoes, or more, each year. I maintain an active lifestyle, hiking, playing, camping, and working.
