Recycled Craft: Custom Portable Art Case I have a couple of budding artists in my house, and it seems like we have projects and materials spread all over the house. I consider this a good thing- but I still wanted to contain the supplies a bit, and in a fun way. I made this custom art suitcase out of a thrifted book. It was very inexpensive, and makes a great portable, and customizable art studio! Blog April 15th, 2014 Daniel and I just got back from Washington, DC. We drove up for our friends’ wedding celebration, but stayed to explore a little since neither of us had been since high school.
Tutoriels d'introduction I thought I’d share with you how to make my fabric scrap “basket”. It’s VERY simple. I whipped out another two baskets in no time at all.

Chevron Pattern Recycled Wood Planter Box » The 91204 Blog After we built the planter box in the previous post for Stephanie, Dez was jealous and she wanted something cool like that for her own garden. So this is what she got and it’s by far one of our favorite DIY projects that we’ve done. It was actually kinda tedious, but totally worth it. After constructing the main box frame from cedar and redwood, the wood for the chevron patterns was mostly leftover pallet stock from various projects. We also used some wood from an old bed frame a neighbor gave us and since we’re revamping our bridal show booth, we didn’t need the white trim molding from that anymore, so we cut it up and used it too.
DIY Shibori (Japanese Tie-Dye) Today marks HonestlyWTF’s four year anniversary. Four years! To celebrate, we’re revisiting the very first tutorial we ever featured on the site: shibori tie dye. Lauren and I first discovered shibori after discovering an old photo on the web. The idea of recreating an ancient Japanese dyeing technique inspired us to spend an entire weekend experimenting with our favorite deep blue, indigo. After dyeing just about every white article of clothing in sight, our blue stained fingers excitedly uploaded the tutorial – we couldn’t wait to share it with our 30 readers. Our Home Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? I have a special delivery for you today. A WHITE CHRISTMAS Yup. I put my elf hat on, and made a little snow for you. Because I love you like that.

East Coast Creative: Modern Typography Meets Reclaimed Barnwood Back in May, I posted about this frame that I made from reclaimed barnwood: This piece is one of my absolute favorites. It’s the first frame I made from barnwood, and is what began my love affair with all reclaimed materials. I had purchased the phrase from Uppercase Living to to add to the frame and for almost 3 years, this frame has made me very happy. MAGIC Decal Tutorial with Free Printables! Some of you may remember, a little while back I posted a tutorial for DIY waterslide decals. Among other things, I mentioned how awesome they are for creating custom embellishments without the need for any fancy-pants equipment. Yep, waterslide decal paper is a truly fab product, though as great as it is, there is one drawback – although it’s somewhat tough it’s not especially durable. So, whilst it’s perfect for ornamental purposes, it’s not ideal for more practical applications…until now that is!
