Inspiration: Remarkable Repairs

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

The art of repairing things is one that we just aren’t very versed in—we’re trying to learn, but it’s taking some time. Luckily, we’re still convinced that the art itself is making a comeback. Well, we have a little proof …

Check out what’s going on over at Platform 21’s The Remarkable Repairs contest. It’s pretty fantastic. They’ve actually chosen a winner, but we’re getting a real kick out of looking at all of the entries.

People have sent in pictures of and stories about things they’ve repaired. Some things are simple and some things are downright artistic. Most of the entries are at least a bit whimsical.

But, we’re just loving the idea: A contest that celebrates repairing things.

What was the last thing you repaired?
