First off I apologize for being a total tease and I am now happy to report that the awesome Amy of Mod Podge Rocks has completed her cross-country trek and has posted my tutorial for the Subway signs! So, if you’re at all interested in learning how to make theseOut of some bits and pieces then by all means head on over to Mod Podge Rocks to get the full tutorial.
They are easy to make and, of course, totally customizable to whatever city inspires you. For a local store I’ve since made ones for London and Chicago!
Now, I think I’ve chronicled my exploits of furniture acquisitions:
- Beg: “you gonna take that with you when you move”,
- Borrow: “Does taking things left on the street count as borrow?” and of course
- Steal: It wasn’t my fault!
Bottom line: I’m all about getting furniture wherever I can.
However, I’ve never had a piece of furniture just walk to my front door of its own volition.
Logic tells me, of course, that a friend, knowing of my sickness, dropped it off. However, there was no note or subsequent email.
So, I’m choosing to believe that word has gotten out among the cast off, discarded and dilapidated furniture subculture that “there’s this guy in LA who can help you out.” And, even as I type, pieces of furniture are making their way carefully down the yellow brick road to my door. There’s no place like home…the garage. There’s no place like the garage…..!
