Whew! Sorry about my extended absence! I was away at a very long trade show and underestimated the degree of exhaustion I was facing! I had intended to post... but alas. However, I'm back to regular posting, and you were on my mind! I don't think you realize what a creative outlet this is for me and I missed it! So, to kick off I've got a super cute, diy, off-grid haven to share with you, located in the deserts of Joshua Tree National Park in California. What started as a birthday camping trip for owners Edmund & Lizet ended in ownership of this run down home, seeing potential in the spectacular views and not letting themselves be discouraged by the junk, old linoleum and purple walls. Here's the good part: doing yourself and having being handy with a hammer really pays off: Edmund & Lizet did this entire home for $10,000! True, Edmund is a furniture maker, which helped save a few bucks. And, if you like the look of this home, you can rent it!
The wall art are actually the old linoleum tiles that they ripped off and liked the random pattern the glue made on the back! Make art with totally unexpected, upcycled things!
