design*sponge + DIY + Projects / Wednesday, 6 Jun 2012

Copper tubing side table

Hey! I’m doing a series of summer DIYs over at design*sponge and the first one came out today. It’s the first time I’ve done some serious home projects (serious for me anyway). I have a serious fixation on copper plumbing tubing right now so I incorporate it into a few projects. First one up is this side table for my new studio. Guess who learned to use a drill for it? Yup! It gave me an “I can do anything in this world” now attitude. Build a house? no biggie, coming right up. No, in all seriousness, learning to use a drill has changed my life. I need to give a big shout out to my downstairs neighbor, Sebastian, who so patiently walked me through these projects and directed me on how to make it feasible. PLUS, he has every single tool you could possible need/want (including one to bend metal! oh yeah, good times ahead) so thank you! Also, thank you for letting Hilda and I come crash your dinner to get some good shots of the table in your beautiful house. And once again, a gold medal to Hilda for your amazing patience, ideas, and support as I tried doing 5 DIYs in one day especially in the midst of moving :(. And one last shout out to my friend Anna who came to the rescue with engineering advice. I wish she could perch on my shoulder and direct me on a daily basis.

For the full instructions, go here.

Europe + Iceland + Life + Scandinavia + travel / Tuesday, 5 Jun 2012

Glacier Lagoon Part Deux

Remember when we went to the Glacier Lagoon? Well, right after we boated through the glaciers we hopped across this bridge
and traversed the black sands
then came across the beach. 
But this is no normal beach. This is an ice block beach where instead of throwing a frisbee around…
…you throw chunks of ice.
…and rest on an ice berg
and find true love written in nature (see it?)

The End. Only a couple more Iceland sessions I promise!

Copenhagen + Life + This week / Sunday, 3 Jun 2012

This week

This week we had the best guests in town: Cree and Amanda Jones. The. Best. Guests. Look under “guest” in the dictionary and their names will pop up I promise you. We just had the greatest time with them. We laughed, we cried. We laughed and cried at the same time (well, some of us did while watching this). Sadly, we couldn’t go on all the touring adventures with them but I love seeing how they view Copenhagen based on their instagram photos (I’m really wishing I could use the app they use but alas, my iphone 3 doesn’t handle such novelties). Aren’t these fantastic photos?! We’re already planning our next adventure together. Let the good times roll!

What went on this week?
Made DIY mini art save-the-dates for Brooklyn Bride
Showed the awesome digs of our Berlin loft
Unnur guest blogged and created a Reykjavik, Iceland thrift store/vintage shopping guide
Amanda took some magical photos of some of my oversized paper flowers in the nearby park
