DIY: BRANCH CLOTHING RACK

Loving this clothing rack that I found in VT Wonen magazine. You can make this rack yourself by finding a beautiful branch and asking a metal smith to create iron holders for it.

IKEA’S WIRELESS CHARGING FURNITURE & ACCESSORIES

ikea-wireless-charging-furniture-01

Messy charting cable are now history! IKEA has created a collection of furniture and home accessories that make charging a lot more available, yet a lot less obvious. These products are called wireless chargers, because that’s what they are: a range of products that make it possible to charge your smartphone, without cables. They blend in beautifully with your home, and can easily be placed where you need them the most. All without having to chase after outlets or hide messy cables. IKEA: “With smartphones being such a natural part of our lives, we want the charging part to become a natural part of our homes. As a result, we’ve created a collection of wireless chargers that make charging a lot more available, yet a lot less obvious (goodbye messy cables!).” You can see the entire range here.

DIY PROJECT: OLD CHAIR MAKE-OVER

I love the make-over of this pair of old chairs! The original blue paint at the end of the legs was grinded away and left bare. The rest of the chairs were then painted in a beautiful matt black color. You can find old/vintage chairs in thrift stores or on sites such as Craigslist (US) and Marktplaats (Netherlands). I believe that the chairs used in this project are Thonet chairs.
