It’s not so bad if the brush is CLEAN, but if it has even a trace of medium left in it, it could very well be a goner. Now check this out, London designer Dominic Wilcox took paintbrushes–much like the one pictured above–and dried/hardened them into hooks. Continue Reading

There never seems to be enough shelving or hooks in bathrooms. This lovely how-to from the idea room helps solve that little problem and in a very stylish, Pottery-Barn kinda way. We’re told that it’s ‘so simple that anyone can make one’. Here’s the supply list to do just that:
3 foot length of 1 x 12 Pine (or composite wood) (back of shelf)
4 foot length of 1 x 6 Pine (or composite wood) (top of shelf)
These wall hangers put a clever spin on the term ‘cup hooks’. DIYable? I’m thinking it might be worth a shot. If the cups were more cylindrical than conical, the interiors could even be used to stash stuff. To attach them to the wall, we could drill holes in the bottom of the cups, or we could epoxy them onto something which we could then in turn hang.
Submitted for your approval: Imagine as you enter your home, disembodied hands reach out from the walls, gesturing to you. They offer to take your coat, keys, wallet. (Insert spooky theme song of The Twilight Zone here.)
Available through Unica Home, Harry Allen’s Hand Hooks are made from “detailed casts of the designer’s own hands.” The truncated appendages will set you back 75 bucks each–or 15 bucks a digit.
