Let's start off with Epbot reader Angela E.'s AMAZING new bathroom, shall we?
Angela tells me the room still isn't entirely finished, but I'd say she's well on her way to having the steamiest bathroom of the year. Check out that amazing clock over her equally amazing copper soaking tub:
Dale Mathis, who has several famous furniture designs you may have seen before. Here's a close-up of the clock (titled "Wicked") from his website:
Click on over to Angela's blog for more pics and details - or, if you're like me, to ask if you can move in to her bathroom. I'll even bring my own pillow, Angela! (Btw, have I mentioned that I can practically wash my hands in the sink while taking a shower in my bathroom? No? Consider it mentioned.)
This just popped up in my Pinterest feed last night, and I am officially in love:
Now I'm going to rant for a bit about the web of thieving Tumblr and Pinterest accounts that REFUSE to properly credit sources, thereby flooding all the Google image results with redundant, non-credited links, and making it pretty much IMPOSSIBLE to find and credit the original source. ARG.
K, rant over, and moving on...
Here's a fabulous idea for upcycling old globes:
From Anecdote Design on Etsy (although it sold two years ago.)
And for more stellar upcycled globe ideas, check out this post over on Dishfunctional Designs - so many great designs!
Here's another brilliant potential DIY, this time from the catalog Napastyle:
Kristine over at The Painted Hive posted this brilliant sconce makeover using a plastic safety light cage, if you can believe it:
Hit the link up there for details and process-shots; it's brilliant. Pun intended.
Prepare for a design-gasm. Then feast your eyes on this industrial piping book shelf, complete with attached lights:
By Stella Blue Designs on Etsy - and there are several different styles to choose from.
The phrase, "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY" comes to mind.
Here's a positively genius idea for your next steampunk-styled furniture makeover:
Cut up an old leather belt, and use it for draw handles!
Like I said, GENIUS.
Via Apartment Therapy - hit the link for a tutorial, if you need it.
I mentioned Melanie R.'s patent prints in a post not too long ago, but I neglected to show off her fabulous steampunk living room. Time to remedy that!
Ooooh, I like it!! And the gear buttons on the accent pillow? DELISH.
Plus, check out her ceiling fan:
Melanie didn't mention where she got the table or fan, so you guys will have to beg her for details in the comments if you want to know.
And finally, I'll end with the window to end all windows (although the room it's attached to is a bit vanilla):
Doesn't it look like something straight off the Nautilus? Or maybe the luxury passenger car of a dirigible? Add a few giant rivets on the cross beams, put a well-worn circular leather couch in front of it, maybe cover the rest of the walls with shelves and shelves of books... [dreamy sigh]
Hey, John? Can we knock out a wall somewhere and put this window in? Pretty please?
Hope you guys enjoyed the home design goodies! As always, I welcome your photos and finds; just send 'em to me via e-mail or over on the Epbot Facebook page!
