One of my all time favorite magazines, Canadian House and Home, is now blogging! They've just started so there's only a few posts up per blogger. However, if the quality of the magazine is any indication, we should be in for some insightful posts and good sources. A post by Michael Penney on DIY lighting caught my attention as it's been on my to-do list for a long time! The inspiration is a lamp from a Tom Scheerer design (first image) Michael recommends the Medina Glass jar by West Elm and it turns out it's now on sale. Also consider checking out Michael's plans for converting thrift store side tables into DIY Stools here.
