So we took a look at three of the featured images and found alternatives from the PANYL store so that, if...

Hey, Sugar: Coffee Stirrer Keychains

Something as ordinary and disposable as a coffee stirrer is not what one would typically expect as the foundation for a beautiful DIY project. But that is just what Jamie Costiglio implemented for her lovely keychain 'hack' on Pretty Handy Girl.  

As she explains, the Coffee Stirrer Keychain is a perfect party favor or small gift since it's highly customizable (to the giftee's liking) and can fit into the scheme of any situation or...

When IKEA revealed that it was retiring the world's most ubiquitous bookcase, the web erupted in EXPLIDITIVES.  “What a KALLAXAMITY!”, they typed in all caps.  Alas, the situation is not nearly as bad as we feared now that, in truly EXPIDITIOUS fashion, the KALLAX has landed! 

Yesterday’s routine IKEA run was met with a curious situation in Aisle 1 of the...

Stuart Haygarth's Toy-Inspired High Design Will Melt Your Mind


At the Carpenters Workshop Gallery branch in Paris, 13 pieces are on display by English artist/carpenter/scavenger Stuart Haygarth.  His show, titled “Play,” uses incredibly novel design techniques to create furniture out of what were, in a previous life, merely toys.  Haygarth turns ordinary found items extraordinary.

He explained the premise to the Carpenters Workshop Gallery:

"Starting in 2004 I have been working on design projects which revolve around the collections of...

The EXPEDIT Is Dead! Long Live the EXPEDIT (Using PANYL!)

By now you've heard the news: IKEA is discontinuing its wildly popular, seemingly untouchable EXPEDIT line.  Sigh if you haven't yet sighed.

NOW REJOICE! Because here at PANYL HQ we're seeing a Pinterest board worth of silver linings from this development.
