Start a Kickass Online Blog

Working on writing our first book has been one of the most amazing projects. It seems like it will be forever until I get to show you what we’ve been creating for it. Like all projects I work on, having a piece that is community...

Tile Tray with Brass Handles

Happy New Year All! I am back after the holiday break and so excited for all the home projects I have planned in 2019. So when they asked me to come out to NYC to watch The World Strongest Man, Hafthor Björnsson (aka The Mountain on...

Dining Table Chairs Makeover

I did not know exactly the shape I was looking for, but knew that I wanted to paint them with this SUPER pretty Krylon® Italian Olive color. I stopped at 5 different thrift stores, picking up different chairs along the way (each were only $6),...

Craftsmanship and Geopolitics

There’s been a buzz in the world of craft and artisanship of late, and I’m not talking about a new artisanal brew, air-dried hachiko persimmons or hand-turned foraged wood beard combs. No: I’m talking about Cuba and Iran. Having the rugs made in Iran again is...

Where Art Meets Function
