End Table Refurbish

My boyfriend and I recently moved in together, combining our (surprisingly a lot of) furniture and belongings. He’s had these two wooden end tables, one which he used in his childhood bedroom, and the other found in his childhood home’s attic when he moved out some years ago. They have certainly seen better days, but I saw some potential and instead of tossing them out I decided to take on the challenge. Here is my attempt at refurbishing the first (and admittedly easier) of the two. Stay tuned for the next table.

The Magnificent Multitude of Beer!


It’s the end of the week, one day early! If thats not reason enough to celebrate, here is a nice little (albeit hard to follow) infographic.

The multitude of varieties, brands and tastes of beer available can sometimes be a little overwhelming. So what better way to showcase the taxonomy of beer than with an infographic?

A favourite here at Creative Bloq, Pop Chart Lab have now built on their original beer infographic from 2010 and created a 60x40in malty monstrosity called The Magnificent Multitude of Beer. It ended up being so big that the team had to enlist the help of another printing firm to handle the job. After all that hard work, let’s hope they found time to head to the bar afterwards.

Cheers to a good holiday weekend!

Feeling a little Vintage today

It’s a rainy spring day in Philly. Contrary to popular belief its not ALWAYS sunny in Philadelphia.

I’ve come across a couple vintage ads that I find interesting. Here’s to the new (and last?) season of Mad Men in two weeks!
