Today's Fabulous Finds: DIY Crate--from Paint Sticks (Tutorial) Are you ready for another paint stick project? Hope so! This one came about out of desperation. Prep for Assembly What you'll need 4 paint sticks--5 gallon size (you can buy them at Wal-mart or The Home Depot) 1- pine board that is 3/8" deep by 4" wide by 36" long (buy it pre-cut at Lowes, the price is around $3) Wood glue Jute or Rope Drill Staple Gun (optional) Handsaw and miter box (or an electric saw if you have one) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Assembly 1. 2. 3. The Handles I think the pictures pretty much show how to make the handles. Tip: If you're painting or staining the crate it would be best to add the handles very last. Finishing I stained it with a dark walnut stain. If you want, you can sand it down some if the stain is darker than you like. For my spring decor, I filled it with some greenery and Spanish moss. There are so many things that you can fill this crate with... 5 pint jars fit perfectly--you could fill them with fresh flowers pillar candles clay pots with flowers pine cones in the winter apples

Jamie Beck e Kevin Burg - Cinemagraphs - fotografie in movimento “There’s something magical about a still photograph - a captured moment in time - that can simultaneously exist outside the fraction of a second the shutter captures.” Jamie Beck La fashion fotographer newyorkese Jamie Beck, in collaborazione con il designer e motion graphic artist Kevin Burg, è l’autrice della serie “cinemagraphs”, gif fotografiche animate a metà strada tra video e foto. Immagini statiche decongelate e trasformate in attimi. I due artisti hanno iniziato a sperimentare questa tecnica durante la Settimana delle Moda di Milano, a febbraio. Il risultato finale è unico. Of course the technology to create GIF’s has been around for decades but I believe its potential for both expression and impact, within the fashion world, has yet to be fully explored. Jamie Beck

Painted Wood Wall Art | Via Salvage Love Photo: Claire Ferrante of Little Dog Vintage Materials: -2 pieces of MDF 30 inches x 24 inches and 1 centimeter thick which equals one piece that is 60 x 24. I bought two pieces because I assumed when I attached the wood strips, they would end up being heavy and it would be easier (and safer) to hang them next to each other as two separate pieces -approximately 100 pieces of wood various sizes and depths -7 paint colors. -bag of sponge paint brushes -sand paper -Liquid Nails (this stuff is pretty amazing) -table saw. Time: This is definitely a time consuming project. Cost: paint- 7 / 7.25ML cans of paint -$24 2 pieces of MDF- $24 sponge brushes- $5 Liquid Nails- $3 sand paper- already had some wood strips – free! Total Cost: $56 for materials (I was lucky to not have to pay for wood. With the help of my wonderful father and his table saw, we got to cutting the strips of wood.

Don't Judge a Book by Its Cover… & Elements of Style Blog If you drove by this house in Bedford, NY renovated by Alisberg Parker Architects you’d probably expect the interior to be chock full of traditional classics, right? I really do enjoy a home that has a traditional architectural exterior (and interior- notice all thought molding and trim painted over glossy white) paired with really modern furniture. It’s so unexpected. And that pool house? I die. But I alos love that this design team is capable of doing funky traditional decor as well.
