A few months ago I purchased a couple of candlesticks at the thrift store. They were a beautiful shape and size but the finish was a bit confusing. Were they tarnished brass that resembled silver or were they silver plate rubbed down to the brass. Either way I liked them so they came home with me.
Then I stumbled upon an article proclaiming the wonders of an inexpensive product that could easily be found in the automotive aisle. This stuff really is magic-----that is if you can get beyond the horrendous odor of ammonia. I wore my paint mask while scrubbing away with an old towel that quickly turned black as I rubbed and rubbed.But all of the odor and rubbing and elbow grease was worth it when the results are as dramatic as this little before and after. The new finish is a silver-ish with a gold undertone---a really beautiful combination.Now my thrifted treasures are a real treasure find!
Desk design made of stainless steel. Simple desk minimalist style checkers. Suitable to decorate your home interior.
French designer and artist Max Ingrand created this combination of art and functional design back in 1966. Still looking modern, the Max Ingrand Desk consists of a single continuous form bended into a whole seat-inclusive workstation. The stainless steel from which it was made gives it an industrial-chic look and places this desk ahead of its time.
We saw this adorable pillow line at the New York Gift Show and we thought you might want to check them out. The pillows are made of cotton/linen fabrics and are either embroidered or silk-screen printed. They're so pretty and fun....

Hello everyone! We hope you are having a great new year. As you might have noticed we've been MIA for a while. Last year was crazy, we tell you. We were so busy we thought we were going to die! We've launched 3 new sites, moved our office to Sausalito and added some new staff, so needless to say, things have been hectic for us.
But, we're back and we're ready to work.
Here are some pretty, bright room to brighten up your winter days... don't know what it's like where you live but it's been raining forever here in California! We're praying for a little sunshine!
This is what I used:
Bibs and Baby Toy (optional and changeable)
Clear Elastic Bands OR a Helpful Extra Finger
First open each diaper and wrap
around the wreath form.Then tie a ribbon around each.
If you don't have an extra helpful finger,
you could secure the diaper first with an elastic.
I choose to use the finger belonging to my
fourteen year old son. After all, it made the
creating process much more fun to listen to
a teenage boy complain about having to
touch girly ribbon and baby diapers.
Be sure to skoosh the diapers together and
add on enough to completely cover the wreath form.Next tie on toys, bibs or whatever you choose.Finish with a pretty bow.Then be prepared to hear the
ooohs and aaahs
from the new mommy and shower guests.
Table design is very simple and minimalist look. But behind this simple table design, there are many drawers. I see the picture below.
This is a special desk - it`s equipped with different sized drawers (from small to A2 format) and a translucent mat surfaced glass desk that keeps your things hidden underneath. Designers from Process created this versatile desk to be used in many situations: it can be a desk or a working station or even a place to keep tools in the garage.
