In this week’s installment of 10 Things Nobody Tells You: what to know about the age-old tradition of plaster. Read on: 1. It can contain marble dust or soap made from olives. At its most basic, plaster is a mixture of lime or gypsum, sand or cement, and water that hardens when dry. But there are a wide varieties of options available for the modern plasterer, including slaked lime, Venetian (which has pigment and marble dust in it), gypsum, clay, and the Moroccan plaster called tadelakt—made o...

Salvaged Style: An Easy DIY Upgrade for Dry Cleaner Wire Hangers

I remember a friend in high school making fun of her mother for reusing tinfoil and thinking to myself, “What a good idea.” I grew up in New England, and Yankee thriftiness is part of my DNA—which perhaps explains my love of doctored everyday objects. I collect white cotton pillowcases that Depression-era brides embroidered modestly on the edges. I love suitcases that someone long ago improved with travel decals. And one of my favorite Remodelista posts is Justine’s DIY closet makeover in which ...

Beyond the Swiffer, 6 Eco-Friendly Mops and Dusters

We first got interested in Cuban-style mops when Justine posted on The Cuban Mop: The Near Perfect Cleaning Tool You’ve Never Heard of (and How to Use It), so we were inspired to round up some eco-friendly alternatives. Here are five we’re eyeing: Above: The Quick-Loop Mop is made from oak and steel and has no moveable parts (the handle comes in three sections that you screw together). The steel pinch loops hold a cleaning cloth that can be washed and reused. $16 from Amazon. Above: Th...

10 Things Nobody Tells You About Painting Floors

For maximum transformation on minimum budget, you can’t beat paint. A new color on the walls can change the mood of a room, but it doesn’t stop there: a few coats can change up a piece of furniture or transform an entire kitchen. So when Fan asked, in a recent editorial meeting, what to do about the unloved flooring in her guest bath, Julie’s answer was, of course: paint it. Painted wood floors are most often associated with seaside cottages, where they originated for their no-fuss practicality ...

The British Library Digitizes Its Collection of Obscene Books (1658-1940)

Many people are cheated out of an authentic education in English literature because of a longstanding puritanical approach to its curation. One might spend a lifetime reading the traditional canon without ever, for example, learning much about the long history of popular pornographic British writing, a genre that flourished in the 18th and 19th centuries as the popularity of the novel exploded. Everyone knows the Marquis de Sade, even if they haven’t read him, not least because he lent his name...

10 Things Nobody Tells You About Painting Furniture

Earlier this winter, I moved with my boyfriend into a quirky one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan’s West Village. When we found it we couldn’t believe our luck. “It’s perfect,” we told our friends and family: “We’re moving in January, so we’ll have a couple of months in the winter to take on some DIY projects and really make it our own.” Among other DIYs, I decided to repaint a table, several peg rails, and a massive wooden wardrobe, ordered from Ikea, to serve as my closet. Cut to one month later...

10 Things Nobody Tells You About Washing Your Bedding

There’s nothing like a freshly made bed, with clean sheets and luxurious pillows—particularly during hibernating season. But is your bed (where you sleep, relax, read, watch Netflix and, quite possibly, eat and work) really clean? It’s a question we almost couldn’t bear to ask. “It pays to go deeper,” says bedding maven Tricia Rose of Rough Linen, when we did ask her how to maintain a truly clean bed. Some of her tips called us to attention; others let us off the hook (good news: you don’t need ...

New Music: GoldLink Feat. Peewee Longway & WaveIQ “Got Muscle”

After teaming up with Miguel on “Got Friends,” GoldLink keeps the new tunes coming as he connects with Peewee Longway and WaveIQ for “Got Muscle.” Unexpected collaboration? Yes. Unquestionably fire? Also yes. GoldLink’s flow on this is too crazy. GoldLink recently debuted another new song called “Justine’s Interlude” — an ode to his new boo Justine Skye — so it’s safe to assume he’s been cooking. Fingers crossed for a new album this year.

WHAT SHE SAID: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

Today we bring bring back our feature, “What She Said…” in which we both review books that the other has previously read and reviewed. This feature arose because of a very serious dilemma we faced at Casa de Smugglers: what happens when one of us reads and reviews a book that the other desperately wants to read and review? We can’t really post about the same book AGAIN, right? WRONG! Thus, “What She Said…” was born. Thea read The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein last year and has been t...

10 Things Nobody Tells You About Shiplap

Here at Remodelista we’ve been nursing a healthy obsession with shiplap for the last few years. But there are a surprising amount of misconceptions about shiplap: as one craftsman pointed out, the kind of cladding that’s been popularized over the last few years by shows like Fixer Upper isn’t, in fact, true shiplap. (Or, as he put it: “No, Joanna; that’s not shiplap.”) Here’s what you need to know to separate shiplap fact from fiction: 1. How to tell if it’s shiplap? Mind the gap. Above: Tr...

10 Things Nobody Tells You About Painting a Room White

Painting a room white can make it feel open, clean, spacious, quiet, or simple, and it’s always the go-to when it comes time for us to paint our interiors.

An intimate pastel desert elopement in Valley of Fire State Park

If there was ever a reason to believe that everything happens for a reason, Justine + Peter’s Valley of Fire elopement as captured by Gaby J Photography is it. Justine had actually always dreamt of a small wedding in the desert—a complete change of scenery from New Jersey. But it wasn’t until their venue fell through that they were actually able to make this dream come true… in four months, no less! Luckily, she had a pretty distinct vision by then, so everything came together just right. Just...
