Storing paint leftovers

This is how I store paint leftovers

I hate storing paint leftovers in the original, drip-covered can. It's ugly, the container takes up too much room, the paint dries up and even if I write the name of the colour on the can, I have to open it up to make sure it contains the paint I need to touch up that banged up wall. My solution is to transfer the paint to a Mason jar with a tight lid. I can see the colour its filled with and I can dip the paint brush in it easily. Sure, it would be a mess if it suddenly got smashed on the floor, but I'll take my chances. I also think it looks pretty nifty!

It's a fact

Meat loaf is prettier before it's cooked.

One of these things is not like the other one

On the right, the lawn in front of Maurice Richard Arena. On the left, the grass that goes towards Viau metro station. Both are the same (uncut for a while) lenght. This is not photoshopped. Can you spot the difference?

MUVBOX opens in Old Montreal

When closed, it just looks like a big container. But when it opens up, it turns into a full-out restaurant with a kitchen and dining area, unfolding like a Transformer before the astonished eyes of passers-by. Müvbox, the company behind this portable restaurant concept, had their interior design and architecture done by Sid Lee, in collaboration with Ædifica.

I went to the launch and it was AWESOME. Watching Müvbox open was like the foodie equivalent of a rocket launch. The food is great (try the lobster rolls) and the location, near the river and Café des Éclusiers, could not be better.

Don't miss it this summer!
