17 Apart: How To: DIY Stump Table You guys, we made a table from a slice of tree stump, no joke! We mentioned tackling a DIY project we were pretty excited about weekend before last — well we finally got it finished and this is it. Here's the whole (very long) story of how this all came about and step by step instructions of exactly how it went down in the event you want to tackle making one of your own! We started out with a stump — obviously. What's funny about how this all came about is in how we actually found and brought the stump home. It just sat there day after day and about 2 weeks after she began seeing it she started telling me each evening how she wanted me to go get it so we could make something out of it. The stump was heavy as all get out but I was able to get it in the front seat of the car safely, buckle her in and bring her back home (please don't ask me why my shorts are riding up so high in this photo, maybe the most embarrassing shot of me on the blog to date): I sanded and sanded: What's that?

40 Must-See Photos From The Past The phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words” was coined by American newspaper editor Arthur Brisbane in 1911. It’s a simple notion that applies to many aspects of our lives, but especially to historical photography. Sometimes, one simple picture can tell you more about history than any story you might read or any document you might analyze. These photographs all tell stories about the historical figures or events that they represent. Perhaps the wars, poverty, fights for freedom and little miracles of the past have lessons for us that we can use today?

THE SUN WAS HIGH: DIY // Galaxy Jeans I don't want to enter in a "I liked galaxies before it was cool to like them" monologue, but I've always been obsessed with outer space! My brother and I used to visit the local library and borrow tons of books about galaxies, spaceships and planets. The obsession stuck and now, even my design portfolio is filled with space-inspired pieces. There is something so fascinating and mysterious about coloured clouds, planets and stars... You'll need: - A pair of black jeans. - A spray bottle filled with two parts bleach (javel) and one part cold water - Some acrylic paints. - An old toothbrush - A sponge - Little containers/plates to mix the paint WARNING: As you can see, the pictures show both sides of the jeans. HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR DIY JEANS: As long as you are careful while washing them, the paint should not come off. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Did you enjoy this tutorial?
