Wallpaper as Drawer Liners

Quickly and easily dress up your home―brush and paste not required.

For a flash of style with every pull, line the inside of a drawer with wallpaper cut to fit. Attach with double-stick tape or removable mounting squares so the lining won’t shift when you’re rummaging for a sock’s mate in a pre-coffee morning daze.

Recycled Shipping Containers

LOT-EK’s design for the Open School focused on activating the open space at the river edge. Set on a site that included an incredible sloping hill and extended water and rock path, the architects were provided an unmatched opportunity to create a beautiful space for visitors, spectators and actors to showcase their curious and artistic endeavours.

Constructed from 8 shipping containers carefully arranged, the program features three different and interconnected areas each evoking a different spatial experience mainly driven by the natural environment.

Rightside Upside Down

It'll make you FLIP.

    Reading, writing, and...repurposing. The creative makers at renegadehandmade.com turned this vintage school desk on its head -- literally. They built a simple wood box that fits between the desk's legs and houses a sweet array of succulents. A second wood box outfitted with a pull becomes a drawer to stash garden supplies. Extra credit for the fab folk art designs woodburned on the front and sides. Amazin'
    Before: Shabby ole Desk
    After: Super cute garden.

Play with your food

I remember when I was a kid and my mom showed me how to make a rose out of a radish. I thought that was pretty cool. 
Food that looked like something it wasn't = culinary genius. 


Fast forward uhh... a lot of years later, the exact number isn't important. :) and there's complete works of art composed of edible yum yums. 


I dedicate this post to Superbowl food fans everywhere:

Greek gods would play here

"sweet cat pizzas bro"

Shark Week meets Food channel

Carbs are bad for you... see!

To quote an old friend: "I never met a sandwich I didn't like"


thanks bro
