cre·ate krēˈāt/

  1. Bring something into existence
  2. Cause something to happen as a result of one’s actions

I’m often denying that I’m at all ‘crafty’.  Even though I’m a stylist, and am frequently recreating spaces and objects, restyling my home or even just displaying things.. . I strongly associate all things crafty with items such as wool, felt, pom poms, fabric glue and glitter.. many things I don’t own and very infrequently use. A ‘creative’ is a more apt and perhaps less humble description.

Deliver four chairs from Restoration Hardware to my apartment however and I can hardly wait to build a playhouse from them for my daughter. This may possibly be my very first ‘how to’ post.  Maybe it’s not so much of a step by step…. more a photo montage of a ‘look how clever I am’ and work out if you can do it yourself from the images…

If you do want any tips on furniture making from cardboard boxes though… please do holla at me.. I’m more than happy to help.

I don’t craft though.. I create.
