Paradise Desk finansieras på Kickstarter – datorskrivbord utan kabelhärvor - Kringutrustning Sedan urminnes tider har datoranvändare kämpat mot kabelhärvor. Många försöker snygga till datorhörnan med kabelkanaler och buntband, men det finns betydligt elegantare lösningar. En av dessa är att utnyttja skrivbordet. The Paradise desk is the first desk designed completely for computer enthusiasts and gamers who want a premium desk. Till skillnad från exempelvis Red Harbinger är Paradise Desk inget chassiskrivbord. Själva skrivbordet är en rejäl stålkonstruktion på 157,5 x 71,0 x 77,5 cm, där höjden är justerbar. Paradise Desk har redan redan samlat in närmare 100 000 dollar, betydligt mer än efterfrågade 30 000 dollar. Den som vill ha ett Paradise Desk behöver ställa upp med 349 dollar eller mer, motsvarande cirka 2 300 kronor.

We’re a wee bit competitive, so he gave us just the challenge we needed. Step 1: Sanding There were many layers of paint to remove. Each drawer needed to be sanded and then all of the framework for the dresser. We used an orbital sander and a little mouse sander as well. Step 2: Template & Cut We just free-handed a template of the little shape that we needed to cut on each drawer. Sometimes we’re a little intimidated by power tools, but the more we use them, the easier it gets. Step 3: Create a Faux Metal Finish While I was busy doing a jig (AKA jigsawing), Jess used a few spray paints to get the faux metal finish we were going for. And we liked the results much better. Step 4: Fill the Holes Step 6: Poly Time

38 Anthropologie Hacks They Turned Concrete into Something Cozy in their Hom Who said concrete could never be elegant? Granted, when you think of materials for making furniture, concrete probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. It is heavy, not comfortable and is difficult to work with unless you’ve been properly trained. Concrete tends to inspire images of industrial factories, not cozy living spaces. But one guy is proving us all wrong. He made an awesome coffee table in his own home. Image Source: viralnova First, he made a few molds to test out concrete colors. He used melamine boards to make the concrete molds. He tried over a dozen samples until he found the right color. Next he made the mold for the top of the table. Using a spray gun to distribute the concrete into the mold, he sprayed it up the sides so the tabletop was hollow. This is what the first layer of concrete looked like. He then packed in glass fiber concrete and mesh by hand to reinforce the tabletop. When he finished, the tabletop was just 3/4 inches thick. Next, he made the hollow base.
