Shout out

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

Über thanks to Apartment Therapy for posting about my DIY plumbing shelves. I can’t take all the credit, I totally just copied the Ace Hotel. BTW, the Ace actually used 1/4″ as opposed to my 1/2″ plumbing pipe…I kind of regret not going smaller…I would go smaller if I did it again.

Here are the other images if you missed them, with some updated stying.

This baby is making the internet rounds!

Shout Out

Mad props to Better Living Through Design for featuring my DIY book shelf. They’ve always got pretty stylish things happening around BLTD so it’s rad to be featured.

Which reminds me, I probably should show the updated shelf styling…

Bathroom Shelf

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

Hey it’s my 300th post!

Wow, somehow I’m a little more sad about that than celebratory. I just see all that time. Gone. Oh man.

Anyhoo, we custom built a long shelf in the fleshy pink bathroom. I despise stuff cluttering my bathroom counters, but somehow a tastefully arranged shelf seems a little more artful. Plus I’m going to install a little hook to hang my ugly dryer from and some hand towels. The hair dryer drives me bonkers – but not bonkers enough to put it away everyday.

We still need to raise the mirror, install hardware, caulk and paint everything to finish it all off.

Ugh. Bathroom. Hot mess.
