Hone Your Craft: 5 DIY Projects That You Should Totally Tackle This Weekend

For some reason, September feels like DIY season to me. Maybe it’s because fall is for learning (and new school supplies). Or that the end of summer and its weekend trips means more time at home…and possibly too many hours spent with a Hulu account. Here, five ways to really make something of a Sunday afternoon. —erica

Leather Belt, by Molly Spittal of The Stowe
Because you need something to jazz up those back-to-school jeans you just bought despite the fact that you haven’t cracked a textbook in a decade.

Basket, by Lisa Jones of Pigeon Toe
After you complete it, you can officially add “underwater basket-weaving” to you résumé.

Dyed Tights, by Ann Yee
Nothing’s wrong with basic black—but these are a whole lot more interesting.

What made Entourage so good? Ari Gold’s rants, Turtle’s girl issues, Mandy Moore’s Mandy Moore-ness, and Drama’s, well…everything about Drama, including his sense of style. We break it down below. —erica

Double Take: Cork It

image

Cork has spent way too long confined to bulletin boards and bottle stoppers—just look at all of this potential. Quartertwenty uses it in its recycled form to create some thoroughly modern chairs, and Liam Mugavin's multifunctional design takes it a step further. He riffs on the process of cork harvesting—it peeled off a type of oak tree, if you’re wondering—to make a piece that can be transformed from tray-topped table to stool like THAT. —alex ronan

Weather Vain: Varmouth, Maine - 66 and Partly Cloudy

image

You know what’s beautiful this time of year? I’ll bet you can guess. Here’s how to make the most of a fall-ish day in Vacationland. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A Current/Elliott jacket that feels juuuust a little seafaring. 

+ Totally possible to shove this Eayrslee wallet in a pocket—so you don’t get weighed down on a hike.

+ The perfect silk top from Joseph. (Right?!)

+ Oh, this Aesa bracelet definitely wants to head to Gather for dinner—mussels in saffron broth!

+ Atelier Delphine pants—with a stretchy waistband so that you can definitely order two scoops from Maple’s Organics.

+ The perfect Proud Mary shoes for this transitionary weather.

If you want more travel ideas, we got ‘em.
