Just about a year ago, Apartment Therapy posted about Nick Maggio's blog, A Time To Get — a tribute to California culture and cool. Now, he's got a new blog celebrating the art of craft: The Get Up and Get Down.The Get Up And Get Down is a mecca of crafts, both the kind handmade by other people but customized for you, and the kind you make yourself. Nick vetes his picks through the same sensibility — clean, classic, California modern — that characterizes his other blog, with the goal of becoming a resource for all things crafty cool. You'll find tutorials on furniture, simple gadgets and tactile accessories, all assembled under one roof and presented in a way that harkens back to Don Draper's time and suggests that the crafts you find here — whether you make them or buy them — will be strong, sturdy and built to last and age well.
