Post image for fun with copying

we just got a new copy machine at the home office, and we had training today to learn how to use it – and one of our fp girls snapped these cute photos!

this is the instructor, alberto, who was very nice and very into copiers!

You'll also see builders being pickier on construction and home improvement loans. The lender will assume that any undocumented large deposit is from an ineligible source, and can deny your loan because of it. If you can have the contract ratified and notarized by an attorney or lawyer or any legal firm this will make the agreement watertight.

Post image for turn your dresser into a shelf!

yes it’s another dresser idea but i wanted to share this today too because i think its such a unique, cool idea.

if you happen to have a really old beat up dresser that you don’t use, take out the drawers and paint them a a bright color, line them with some cool wallpaper and turn it into a sweet-looking shelf!

i  think this would look awesome if you used some old vintage wallpaper like these…

wallpaper

so what do you guys think, would you try one of these ideas on your dresser?

I once did something similar with old drawers that were being discarded from my apartment building-- from a kitchen that was being re-done. I really like the idea of lining the drawers for some extra color. One could also try wrapping paper or contact paper, available in lots of patterns in hardware stores (designed for lining shelves and drawers)-- or even scented drawer liner paper, which is often available very cheaply at places like T.J. Maxx. :)

I saw something really similar in the ReadyMade book. That magazine is a must have for the creative mind.

this is such an amazing idea – i saw it on design*sponge a while ago and i’ve always thought about doing it, except i don’t have a dresser like that :)  the flowers remind me so much of our one of a kind vintage flower necklace!

for their tutorial, they used some vintage brooches found on ebay, removed the backs and glued screws on.  check out the full tutorial here!

such a great way to give your dresser a little free people touch :)

Awesome! I love that they are all mismatching it gives such a cozy home feeling. Another DIY idea with knobs, my mom purchased a broken knob from Anthropologie and is making it into a ring.

We are featured as one of the best places to work, Which is pretty exciting!!!

I got shown this book today “I Wish I Worked There!” It’s a very cool book by Kursty Groves co founder of Headspace and www.spacehopper.com and Will Knight the founder of Brew, a London and New York based creative collective.

The book reveals some of the world’s most inspiring workplaces and we are in there!

Here’s an excerpt

“An environment that appeals to their imagination and encourages them to explore…

“The Philosophy has fuelled a multitude of creative solutions and whimsical additions to the working environment over and above the restoration and preservation of the buildings themselves. An acid bath is transformed into a fern garden, former wood columns become grand staircases, and an abandoned decompression chamber has a new life as a sculptural piece between buildings”

 

This book is great – Google’s and Innocent work space looks pretty fun too, but i think we give them a run for their money!

Nikki -Mar 02, 2010, 8:46PM
Very cool. I will have to check out the book.Peace.
Amanda -Mar 02, 2010, 7:41PM
@Erin: So did i, I'd love to be an intern, or work at one of the stores.. I haven't heard anything either. Free people is the most amazing place, and there stores... don't even get me started. If I could use one word to describe fp, it would be inspirational. -Amanda

“don’t cry because it’s over.  smile because it happened.”  – dr. seuss

what was your favorite dr. seuss book?  mine was always the cat in the hat…i loved thing 1 and thing 2  :)

Emily -Mar 28, 2010, 10:26AM
I like "the Lorax" very much. Theres a quote I thought would go good on this site. My friend told me about it a while ago and we cried when we heard it. "Today you are you that is truer than true there is no one alive that is youer than you"-Dr. Seuss
Marilyn -Mar 03, 2010, 9:19PM
My favorite was The Five Hundred Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins. :D Its the best! Its about a kid who tried to take off his hat for the king but there is always a hat underneath. Most of the book is the king trying to take his hat off.

the first music festival of the season is just a couple of weeks away! this year a couple of our fp girls heading down to austin for SXSW and we’re going to be bringing you the SXSW experience …fp style!

i thought for tunesday today i’d feature one of their must-see bands for this year, white denim! they saw this garage/experimental rock trio perform last year and loved them, so they can’t wait to check them out again this year. white denim is also a hometown favorite, being from austin.  they’ll be playing this year at emo’s annex, thursday march 18 at 1:00am.

i  just listened to their album “fits,” released in october of ’09, and was really impressed- and supposedly they put on a sick live show.

listen to a couple of their songs and let me know what you think!
