How to Build a Greenhouse Made From Plastic Bottles The bottles are washed to remove labels, then the bottoms are cut off. You will need to remove the bottle lids too.

How to Refinish Furniture If you discover missing veneer, chipped wood or a damaged molding, you can fix it easily with epoxy putty. Kevin showed us the process he uses (watch a video of him patching a piece of chipped veneer with Quickwood), and the resulting repair is so realistic that it’s hard to spot. When it’s hardened, the epoxy is light colored and about the density of wood. You can shape, sand and stain it like wood too, so it blends right in. Quickwood and KwikWood are two brands of this Tootsie Roll–shaped epoxy. You’ll find it at home centers and specialty woodworking stores for about $9 a tube.

Stripping, Repairing, and Upholstering a French Chair, Part 1 - Shades of Blue Interiors I decided to show a “play by play” if you will, of how to strip, repair, and reupholster a chair for the absolute beginner. For someone who maybe has some ugly chairs with good bones (wooden frame) but is a little intimidated to tackle it. I think this is doable for most anyone with some determination! This first post will be simply on how to STRIP the upholstery, batting, hog hair (or what have you), and burlap so you are down to the bare springs.

Neri Oxman Designer Neri Oxman is the Sony Corporation Career Development and assistant professor of Media Arts and Sciences at the MIT Media Lab, where she founded and directs the Mediated Matter research group. Her group explores how digital design and fabrication technologies mediate between matter and environment to radically transform the design and construction of objects, buildings, and systems. Oxman coined the term “material ecology” to describe the study and design of products and processes integrating environmentally aware, computational, form-generation processes and digital fabrication. Her goal is to enhance the relationship between the built and the natural environments by employing design principles inspired by nature, and implementing them in the invention of novel digital design technologies. Areas of application include product and architectural design, as well as digital fabrication and construction.
Rouleaux de papier toilettes encadrement géométriques Well that’s a mouthful! So the time has come, it’s Pinterest Challenge time again! Every season Sherry from YHL and Katie from Bower Power throw a little link party to get people to stop pinning things and actually start making.

Stripping, Repairing, and Reupholstering a French Chair, Part 3 This post will be showing how to paint (white wash) the frame, & place, cut and staple fabric onto a chair.

So on Thursday morning I will head back to Marscott Upholstery Supplies, since I noticed they had a lot of gimp trim in lots of colors. If you remember, this is where I left you, last Thursday:
