DIY Project: Restoration Hardware Inspired Shelves

Now we’re going to show you how we made them. UPDATE: See the original reveal here and how we updated them with industrial style lighting from Ikea here and where we’re using them in our NEW HOUSE here. And if you’d like to know how to make wood look old (like we do on the shelves) in just 3 steps click here. Thank you so much for all your sweet compliments, by the way! I have to say writing this particular DIY was a little tricky.

These shelves are made from reclaimed pallet wood (from skids) and metal. What you’ll need for one shelf (double everything if you’re making two, like we did): For clarification on some steps, please refer to detail photos and drawing. Step 3.Clean parts. Step 6.

Mini Manor Blog: Cutlery Tray for Jewelry!

I have a small jewelry box for my "real" jewelry. As much as I'd love to fill a wall with gold and diamond jewelry, we can't afford that :( so as far as my real items go, I only own the classics. A small pair of diamond studs, a pair of peal earrings, a pearl necklace, a cocktail ring, a couple of white gold bands, and of coarse my wedding band and engagement ring!!

An over-sized bird’s nest offering you a secluded, suspended sanctuary and unusual meeting place: it’s the perfect place for relaxation, meditation and open-air conversations - NESTREST.

Nestrest - Hanging lounger - chalk

NESTREST is made of an especially strong DEDON fiber (4 cm wide, instead of 2 cm), guaranteeing a sturdy and solid weave with excellent properties: it shelters those within, allowing them to look out while preventing outsiders from seeing in – a perfect feeling of security! Creators of the NESTREST, an innovative new hanging pod woven from supersize strands of DEDON Fiiber, Daniel Pouzet and Fred Frety are two of Paris’s most intriguing design talents. Close collaborators of Jean-Marie Massaud, with whom they have forged new ways of working and approaching design, Daniel and Fred bring a rich diversity of experience to each project they undertake, alone or in a team.
