Tossed & Found



This is my latest project inspiration book. It's called Tossed & Found, by Linda and John Meyers.


Like the best project books, this one is crammed full of clever ideas and pretty pictures and clear instructions. As I do with pretty much all project books, I responded to about 75% of the ideas with a sort of meh reaction — maybe they don't hold personal appeal for me, maybe they require more effort than I'm willing to expend. But the projects in the book I love, I really LOVE. And I also can't get enough of the sketch pages.




This dresser doesn't show well in my photo, but in the book, it's easy to see how awesome it is. I want.

Put together by a husband-wife team (which is always inspirational) — the wife is a former graphic designer/art director, the husband used to head out displays for Anthropologie.


Maybe my favorite thing in the book. They converted an old school boombox to work with their iPod. For sure I'm going to copy this.




This chandelier makes me super happy. If you will build this for me, I will pay you.

Now I'll be spending my nights trying to fall asleep to the thought of how I can recreate that dresser. Brilliant!

Love this idea. Tossed and found. Makes me want to hit up an antique shop and do some fixing up myself!
