I love Ready-Made. If you aren't familiar, it's a magazine focusing on DIY home improvements/decorating. I bought an old issue and found a picture of a table I liked.
I decided to redo a table of my own with a similar feel to that table. This is what I made.
Then I sent an email into the "letter to the editor" email address at Ready-Made. It was just a letter with a picture of my table saying thanks for the ideas and here's one of probably a millions results. Well, about a week later I got an email back from the associate editor at Ready-Made asking if she could print my picture in the next issue.
So, if you read Ready-Made, make sure to check the re-ply section in the next issue. My table just might be in it.
