decorative pillow cases diy- long wood shelves with wood brackets geometric cushion covers
Knowing that I am in the process of designing a wall of bookshelves with a berth-like murphy bed built-in， Maria Robledo sent me pictures of the bookshelves in Creative Director Anne Johnson’；s country house. The simple wooden shelves are held up by triangular wooden brackets nestled into horizontal supports. It’；s a way to have a long length of shelf that is supported at enough intervals that it can hold some weight， giving a sleeker look than classic built-in shelves with uprights every 30 inches or so. It is an interesting design solution to the very problem I’；ve been trying to solve： how to make the shelving sleek rather than boxydecorative pillow cases， yet still able to hold the weight of books. Johnson’；s shelves live on that lovely border of primitive and modern. Because they are painted the same color as the shelf， they become somewhat sculptural， to us a much more pleasing look than standards and brackets.accent pillow case baby burlap decorative
The only drawback is that they are not adjustable. But when we think back on past bookshelves， once we set them up， we never adjusted them. Johnson’；s shelf approach would demaind that I figure out the heights they would be ahead of time， and commit to them， something I try to avoid…；I always like to be able to change my mind! But it just may be the trade-off.
Stay tuned for the continuing story of our bookshelf project.
Thanks Maria and Anne!

At first glance, it’s hard to tell what this small thing is. It glows in the dark and could resemble something that’s out of this world. But, it’s actually a lollipop that uses the phenomena of fluorescence to create a playful and edible treat! Combing candy, fun, and science, a simple-but-crucial ingredient allows this lollipop to absorb energy from ultraviolet (UV) light.
