One of the very first things I purchased for remodeling the Hovel last March was kitchen tile. I eventually purchased porcelain tile I liked better, and the original stuff I had was taking up space on my front porch. Just posted it on CL this morning for a fraction of what I paid for it and had it sold within an hour. Thank goodness for Uncle Craigslist!
The Environmental Science Institute at The University of Texas wanted a website refresh. I worked with them on their Information Architecture, site planning, wireframes, comps, content, interactivity, CMS, project management and publishing. Wireframes and site designed in Photoshop. Developed in Joomla with Coda & Transmit as code editor and FTP client.
My roles in this project: Project Manager, UI/UX Designer, Developer, QA

Two free window panels I posted on Austin Craigslist earlier this afternoon. They’re no good for windows but they’d make interesting canvases for paintings or decoupage or something. Email laura [at] eastsidehovel.com if you want them.
*UPDATE: Thanks, Uncle Craigslist! Someone came and picked up the windows on Monday. Hooray for free junk!
I have a photographer coming on Friday to take pictures of the front bedroom and bathroom for airbnb.com. I’ve already rented them for SXSW this year, but thought it would be a good idea to get professional pictures taken anyway, in case I want to rent them out later on in the year. This meant I had to paint and decorate both rooms after work each night this week. They’re looking pretty good now, and have inspired me to finish my bedroom and bath. Primer is such a boring color, especially after looking at it for 7 months.
Going over and over what I want to do with my kitchen countertops. I’ve settled on soapstone… for now. But what about these tiles from DTile in the Netherlands? Their mission is simple: ‘to tile the world’. They’re off to a great start.
