Idéias criativas Janela SEAT Redesign your window to create a cozy corner to curl up in the sun. What would you wish for? For the second part here Bamboo orb pendant lights Apologies for my long absence. A month ago I landed a full-time job (gotta pay the bills) along with a 3-hour round-trip commute. Ugh. It’s left little time for crafting. Inspired by the Cassiopeia chandelier. Anyway, these bamboo orb pendant lights were inspired by the Cassiopeia chandelier from Ironware International that I saw on the cover of the April 2011 issue of House Beautiful. So, I made my own version using bamboo strips instead of wrought iron and a single CFL bulb instead of five candelabras. Two more things: I found that fabulous shabby-chic trunk on the side of the road with a “free” sign taped to it! Tutorial and photos after the jump! How to make bamboo orb pendant lamps The bamboo for this project comes from an inexpensive bamboo roman shade, purchased from The Home Depot. Supplies and tools *Choose the width of the shade based on the size of pendant you want. **The most time-consuming part of this project is waiting for glue to dry. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Maisonette convertible furniture series is perfect for smaller homes Portable and convertible furniture became kind of outdated when video chat and virtual hangouts replaced having friends over to one’s backyard. But that doesn’t mean that the market for minimalist, purely functional furniture has vanished. Today, these kinds of furniture items are used to make small-space living more comfy for apartment dwellers. Simone Simoncelli, Italian furniture and product designer extraordinaire, has used the needs and wants of such clients to fashion her highly stylish and practical Maisonette series. The name of the furniture range literally translates into ‘little home’ and that is precisely what the multifunctional furniture series aims to fit into. The trolley can also be used as a storage unit though we can totally see it being used as a rather low dinner table for two if one hangs a lamp from the pulling rod and throws two floor cushions at either end of it.
exclusive: Letter lantern tutorial | Font Crafts Want a quick and easy way to make your space look super hip in only a couple hours? I wish I could tell you that this was hard, but it was sooooo easy. It just took the time to randomly stick vinyl letter type stickers in various sizes (I purchased mine at Michaels) to a plain white paper lantern. You could do this with really any kind of plain sticker. It would also be cool if you used all of the same color but then put in a sticker in another color (I’m thinking red) for an added pop of color. I know you’ve seen me do this same sticker look on other projects, but since I have so many extra vinyl stickers, I decided to whip up another project!
Bookshelf Porn | StumbleUpon.com We're Obsessed With This Easy DIY Artwork Project (& You'll Be, Too!) UPDATE: The long weekend is the perfect time to start some new projects, so why not try this awesome (and so easy) artwork DIY? This story was originally published on July 25. If there are two things that have been commanding our attention lately, they're cool artwork and chevron prints. So, we were obviously pretty stoked to find a way to incorporate both — for cheap! — in an amazing DIY project for your apartment. Inspired by the work of artist Nancy Ramirez, two stellar Refinery29 interns collaborated on this easy-does-it way to spice up an empty wall. From the moment we spied this Nancy Ramirez painting on Pinterest, we were smitten. Assemble your paints and squeeze a quarter-size amount of each color onto your palette. To incorporate all of our colors, we used one at a time, rinsing our brush between each and blending until we covered the canvas. Once you've covered the canvas, let it dry for a few minutes. Et voilà! Photographed by Maia Schoenfelder
