In part 1, we built the platform of the chair/reading nook. Today, we’ll be attaching the sides of the chair and painting it!

Pallet loungers Some of you may remember a while back when I made these beauties from some pallets. Someone requested a tutorial and I'm happy to oblige, especially since I was planning on doing that anyway when they were all done. At the time they were only primed white and now they're a bright and luscious red :) So I took a few more pics and decided it was tutorial time! Ok, maybe tutorial isn't the right word because I don't really have any before or during pics (!) but I'll at least be telling you how I went about it. I can also add that my lack of before and during pics are due to the fact that I didn't know if it was going to turn out well or not.

Tangeez - Tangible Lights by Emily Webster & Mustafa Bagdatli "Tangeez are wonderful building blocks of light. The magnetic click and the translucent colors are incredibly satisfying. They're continually offering new combinations, and they're impossible to put down. I want a whole wall of them." These “physical pixels” create a tactile, interactive and social experience that allows you to hold and control light. Tangeez combine red, green and blue light to create a spectrum of colors that change depending on how you stack them. The more you change and rearrange, the more colors you will see. "They've got the simple charm of a set of Dominoes and yet they're like an interactive set of Legos. -Donald Chestnut, Chief Experience Officer, SapientNitro From spaceships to skyscrapers, Christmas trees to robots, Tangeez can be combined and stacked infinitely to build glowing structures of any shape and size. Tangeez brighten up any space and are as portable and mobile as you are. "Who isn't fascinated with light? -Jim Campbell, Electronic Artist Emily Webster
