Make It : Plumbing Pipe Rack Tutorial

Posted by

My apartment was gifted with many things – exposed brick, a backyard garden, lovely neighbours – but a real closet was not one of them.  With a space about 2′ wide and 1′ deep, it’s more of a hiding place to stash things before people come over… I was so inspired by Marcie’s industrial-chic furniture and …

Make It : Pom-Pom Bunnies

Make It : Easy Necklaces

Posted by

I love bold jewelry and I also love making necklaces out of non-jewelry materials. I’ve used towels, kids lacing beads, pom-poms and more. Using these (big) materials rather than delicate beads or chains gives you a lot of bang for low effort. The ropey necklaces above (except for the polka-dot one) were made from metallic …
