Vintage Remote Control Gets Bluetooth Upgrade

This swanky Magnavox remote is old enough to predate the use of infrared, and actually relies on ultrasound to communicate with the television. It’s a neat conversation starter, but not terribly useful today. Which is why [Chad Lawson] decided to gut the original electronics and replace it with a Adafruit Feather 32u4 Bluefruit LE that can actually talk to modern devices.

The secret to gleaming wooden furniture in five easy steps

The soft gleam of wooden furniture is one of the hallmarks of a well-cared-for house. In recent years, fashionable people have been rather sniffy about “brown furniture”, but what do they know? It is invariably sturdy, useful and – because of the aforementioned fashionables – often not terribly expensive in auctions, salerooms and online. It requires a little work to keep it looking at its very best, but less than you imagine. Here is what I do.

Porsche 356C Emerges from 44-Year Slumber and Heads to Auction

If you thought that all barns in Europe have been checked by now for the presence of some valuable sports car from the 1960s, clearly a few have been overlooked. Later this month, a 1965 Porsche 356C 1600 Super will head to auction in the UK—a car that had been off the road, reportedly in dry storage since the mid-1970s—giving it some actual time-warp cachet, complete with empty packs of period-correct Gitanes cigarettes inside.

Downsizing: How stuff we own now can make a difference later

Like most good ideas, this one — a book about what to do with everything you own to leave the legacy you want — wasn’t mine. The idea belonged to a publisher I worked with years ago, who tracked me down. ‘Why me?” I asked, when he shared his vision...

Homes: Furniture Flip

I’ve flipped a lot of pieces of furniture over the years, but that didn’t stop me from being intimidated by a large dining room hutch that had obviously been pulled out of someone’s barn.

A Guide to Café au Lait Bowls, Including Why They're Worth Collecting Today

Forget about the stimulating beverage inside! It's the cheery exteriors that make café au lait bowls a real pick-me-up. Cradle one filled with coffee and milk in the morning, and you can't help but start the day off right. The bowls and their sunny looks also appeal to collectors. Sitting jauntily on a flea market table, they seem to call: "Pick me up!" One enthusiast who has done just that is Living's former art director James Dunlinson. During the eight years he has been collecting, he has amassed dozens of café au lait bowls. Dunlinson finds the dishes' appeal easy to understand. "Lots of people are drawn to them because they're happy," he says. "And everyone needs bowls."

2015 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R With NFL Link Nets $147K At Auction

There’s no denying the spectacular driving experience delivered by the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R. It’s one of the best track-focused Mustangs ever built, with impressive handling upgrades plus a flat-plane Ford 5.2L Voodoo V8 that punches well above its weight. The Blue Oval produced 37 of these specialty cars in 2015 to commemorate the original 1965 Shelby GT350R, and one of them recently hit the auction block at Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas, netting a respectable $147K at the event, likely due to its history as a car once owned by Jon Gruden, the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders.
