The Design Confidential Real Reader Showcase // The Pursuit of Handyness Campaign Dresser

I chose to build a Campaign Style Dresser for the hubs side of the bed. For my side of the bed, you might remember that I built the Parquetry Dresser that can be seen as a Builders Showcase here.

The Design Confidential DIY // A 6 Second No-Sew Pillow Vine Video with Lowes

I'm back! Did you miss me? Did you notice I was missing in action? No? Shucks... Well you just might have noticed this project from a little while back, and if not, feel free to check it out... I shall be here! 

Last week, I had the pleasure of joining the fabulous folks at Lowe's in the Big Apple, and we put this project to film of a very different variety, or in other words... to film that was shot by a crazy big team of professionals and not with my camera! I am so excited to share this with you guys, it just happens to be the most fantastic stop motion six second vine video and was completely directed and produced by a rather large team of people who do this sort of thing for a living - in real life! The star of the show is such a hunk and I was sad to leave him behind. But alas.. all good things come to an end at some point or another, am I right? Lucky for us, this hilarious take on my easy no-sew pillow project runs on a loop so we can enjoy this over and over till our heart's content! Yahoo, feast your eyes!

I will be back in the next couple of days to fill you in on all of the behind the scenes details! It is definitely not something you want to miss! There was impromptu dancing, a private concert of sorts, a gorgeous hotel and fabulous food with some mighty fine company... good stuff.
