If you’ve ever stayed at an Ace Hotel you’ve probably left with more than a few pictures and notes about DIY projects inspired by the decor around you. Megan and Mike Gilger of The Fresh Exchange had a similar experience with the cushy headboards found at the hotels and decided to make their own. If you want to tackle their DIY Ace Hotel Inspired Headboard you’re going to need a bunch of wood, Army canvas, cotton batting and some tools, but they laid out detailed instructions (including wood measurements if you want to have your local hardware store cut it for you) in the project. And yes, once you build this you’re going to want to redecorate the rest of the room you put it in.
If you don’t have a cigar cutter on hand when you want to light up a cigar you need to get all MacGyver with it. And since a cigar cutter isn’t part of the average everyday carry collection, this can happen often. Instead of adding another item to your already packed pockets consider having your knife pull double duty. The Cigar Cutter Pocket Knife packs a cigar cutter right in the handle. Pair that with the long-lasting AUS-8 stainless blade and you have a tool that will assist in small chores and in enjoying a cigar when you’re done with them.
