DIY-Furniture

DIY projects are a lot like cooking your meals at home—you’re saving money, gaining a bit of satisfaction and often cursing and throwing things by the end of the night. We all know our way around a table saw, but when it comes to DIY projects, far too often it’s the creative spark that leaves us with a coffee table reminiscent of something in the discount bin at Ikea. For some projects that you’d be proud to put on display, pick up a copy of DIY Furniture. Featuring more than 30 crafts from the world’s best design-minds, this book/manual will have you creating usable works of art in no time. Just make a quick trip to Ace or Home Depot and follow the simple plans to have a home that collectively costs less than the one distress leather chair you want from Restoration Hardware.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
