A 'found' vintage spice rack gets a makeover

My lucky boyfriend was the one to spot this classic wooden spice rack a few blocks away from the apartment he was living in. It came with us when we moved in together but the sad thing had definitely seen better days so it was one of the first projects i tackled upon our move in. (Partially because we own so many spices... that's not even half of them on it)

Here's how I did it...

Deck the walls poster exchange

To my designer and design inclined friends, this is your chance to participate in an awesome holiday poster exchange. I've personally seen the awesome prints people have submitted years past and it's worth joining in on the fun - promise!

project round up

Hi old friend, it's been awhile

I know, its been ages. I should be ashamed.
To my defense, i've been incredibly busy and rarely documenting my craft projects.
While I've wanted to return to this blog for quite a while now, it just hasn't really happened. Inspired by the DIY and handmade blogs I stalk daily I figured I should take advantage of the situation at hand. I'm working from home while our office regains power after hurricane Sandy and I have less of workload on my hands for the time being. It's going to be nuts once we return to the office so nows the time to show you what i've been upto lately in the crafts dept...

 Band shirt pillows!

From left to right: VICE SQUAD Last Rockers tee (from when i saw them in London!), HorrorPops shirt (from the good old punkmart days) and The Adicts tour shirt (still got the playing cards from the last time I saw them)
