glight view diy project: letter light from curbly’s new DIY book
We all know that hardware stores can be a bit overwhelming, especially if you’re an avid DIYer. Every time I pass the rows of gleaming copper pipe, I just know there’s an amazing home decor project hiding in there somewhere, but then my eyes scan to the rope section, the molding section, the brackets, and on and on. Too many possibilities! I am so excited to see that the DIY experts at Curbly have tackled the hardware store’s rows upon rows of products in their new book, the aptly named Make It! Hardware Store Decor. This “letter light” tutorial is just one of the 12 awesome home decor projects in the book. Simple to create and the epitome of industrial chic, each project inspires me to raid the hardware store and redecorate my home immediately. Thank you to the creative folks at Curbly for sharing one of their new projects! — Kate

    I’m so sorry for the mixup on our behalf. I certainly didn’t want that to effect your view of the Curbly book- we must have gotten our numbers turned around and I apologize for that.

    That said, I hope the projects are still interesting enough to make up for our snafu- we’ll definitely double and triple check our numbers next time.

    @ Laura – Yikes! What a miscount we’ve made. If you’d like to send us an email at tips [at] curbly [dot] com, we’ll be happy to send you a free copy of our other two eBooks to try to help make it up to you.
