do you know?

do you know where one can get a degree in DIY?

these before an afters (from design sponge) make me GIDDY with excitement. i wish i had the patience and skills do these myself.






SERIOUSLY? WOOD PALLETS. you can get those for free, almost anywhere.






and let me tell you from my very limited 14 hours of reupholstery experience, what she pulled off here is NO SMALL FEAT.

i'm feeling rather inspired - so inspired that i'm fairly sure i'm buying this (for a REAL steal... it's a dovetailed henredon!)

to make it into something like this.

Oooooo I love all of these and YES I think you can make your dresser look just as amazing! i once saw pieces of those crates used as a coffee table and it was the cutest thing ever! Good luck getting inventive!

How is London?! Are you there yet? I really do need to send you an email and catch up.

you've inspired me, friend. I totally masterminded a heist which involved "stealing" a throw-away pallat (sp?) for my studio. Thanks for the inspiration!
