Urban Accents - Manhole And Sewer Cover Throw Pillows By In The Seam.: "

Typically one does not want to rest their head on a manhole cover. Not unless it's one of the fun inkjet printed throw pillows by Rhonda of Brooklyn'sIn the Seam.

Available in two sizes, Rhonda has created round comfy throw pillows with images of manhole, or sewer, covers (both domestic and international) from photographs she took herself. The gritty urban imagery is surprisingly neutral when mixed with both modern and antique interiors.





Prices range from $42 for the smaller pillows to $85 for the larger ones.

Scotch Tape Lets You See Through Frosted Glass

Scotch Tape Lets You See Through Frosted Glass: "

There’s probably no better tool in the gadgeteer’s box than a roll of Gaffer Tape (or duct tape, if you don’t mind sticky or crumbly residues). But what about its humble household cousin, Scotch Tape? Traditionally used for wrapping gifts or taping broken spectacles back together, it has another amazing talent. It can let you see through solid objects.

If those solid objects are in fact sheets of frosted glass. If you have a frosted window that you need to take a peek through, tear off a strip of tape and press it down firmly onto the pane. The roughened, opaque surface is transformed into a smooth, shiny one, and the light that was previously scattered into vague suggestions of shape and color now comes through sharp and clear:

I’m amazed we never saw this trick in a MacGyver episode.

San Francisco resident Corey McMills decided he no longer wanted to deal with the heavy traffic of San Francisco. So he came up with an ingenious idea for parking his car: turning his bay window into a garage. Seen on Curbed, this amazing idea doesn’t leave room for nothing but admiration. The conversion was completed by a company of architects called Beausoleil Architects, according to the owner’s concept. We believe this project could be taken forward; what if parts from inert buildings could be put to good use and transformed into spaces for parking? Have a look at the video below to see how this unusual garage works and let us know what similar creative garage conversions you have seen lately.
