    Wood You Rather

    Like most folks with eyes, I hate extension cords. And like most people who live in older homes and apartments, I need one in pretty much every room. Thankfully there are few stylish alternatives to that dirt brown number we all have hidden away in our junk drawers. I especially like this Wooden Pearls extension cord from Creatures of Comfort ($290).

    DIY Floor Lamp

    I found this great industrial floor lamp DIY via How About Orange (via Homedaddys.com). Lamps – especially stylish ones – can get so so expensive, but they’re not something I usually think about doing myself. This one, however, feels totally doable. I’ve done four or five projects using black metal plumbing pipe and found it really easy to work with. You can even order the pieces online at Home Depot and have them set aside to pick up.

    Flashy Light

    This has to be the world’s most stylish flashlight. The LED M Lamp was inspired by miner’s lamps of the 19th century. It has a rechargeable Lithium battery, so it can pull double duty as a bedside or desk lamp. Which you will want it to because the price tag is $200. Available at the A+R Store. Via TomBoy Style.

    DIY: Wood Beach Pendant Lamp

    Here’s a great tutorial from Camille Styles for transforming a plain pendent lamp kit into a beaded wood pendant. The Etsy shop that makes the light kit she references is currently on vacation, but you can find something similar at More For Less NYC.

    Via Curbly.
