This past week we introduced Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home, based on the concept of a step-by-step recipe book (everything you need to know to make it through a remodel). This coming week, we’ll be riffing on the theme, covering subtle changes you can make the kitchen: new outlet covers, a quick lighting or hardware switch-out, a new coat of paint.

Our friend Rena Tom tipped us off to her latest venture: A Makeshift Society in Williamsburg. Head over to Kickstarter to support this worthy cause.
