An Old Door Design

I found a nice solid old door at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for just a couple of dollars.   The door just happened to be the exact width of two craft crates that I got on sale. I went to the hardware store and got one board to top off the crates and one for a shelf. I replaced the glass with bead board… it was more practical. And then Lots and lots of paint… First I painted everything with black acrylic paint I had left over from another project. Then when that dried I coated everything with a white satin acrylic paint. I put it all together with some brackets and hooks and decorative knobs I got 75% off at the craft store. I then distressed it lightly and glazed it with Valspar Antiquing Glaze. I really like it because I wanted it more black and white than [ Continue reading ]

Ceramic House

The ceramic House was the idea of the Spanish architect Hector Ruiz – Velazquez and it is not an actual house, but rather a small apartment in Madrid. These apartment doesn’t have any entry from room to room, no doors. The idea of the architect being to ease the communication between family members in different rooms. Although I used the term ‘family’, the architect Hector says that this apartment is dedicated to those who live all by themselves, because the apartment itself it’s not big enough. The interior is all white because almost everything is made with cerami, and I suspect that the apartment temperature is lower (because of ceramic wall and floor).
