Send us your questions

Some of our visitors have sent emails with interesting questions, we decided to start having a space to answer them. In this space the blog "Restless Minds" will answer all questions you send us
Send us your question for the email: Restless Minds.

Science progress affects our daily life and "to know" means you are going to chose right, because it allows you to form your own opinion on scientific everyday issues. On the other hand, having an elegant and harmonious vision of the world where we live in leads to a feeling of intellectual satisfaction.
We believe this kind of scientific day to day knowledge should be encouraged from an early age, and that's why this project was born: science, culture, knowledge, crafts for your restless mind.

Super Restless Minds- magazine box with wooden fruit / vegetables box

This is a Super restless idea from Celena, convert a wooden fruit / vegetables box into a magazine box, all we need is the box, paint and varnish, some materials to reuse along with lots of imagination (from here)

What we need:

  • wooden box, similar to those used in grocery,
  • acrylic paint, any color you want,
  • brushes,
  • varnish,
  • sandpaper,
  • old newspapers, to cover the floor,
  • old rag, to clean your hands and the brushes,
  • water, to clean the brushes,
  • plastic caps, from water bottles or yogurt, you will need about 6, depending on the box size,
  • fabric, to cover the plastic caps, you can simply paint them,
  • nails or super glue,
  • felt.
How to:
  1. Sand the box, to avoid injuries;
  2. Remove all the wood dust from the box, otherwise the paint will not fix to the wood;
  3. Paint all the box with a base color, Celena used black;
  4. Paint some details, Celena painted some flowers;
  5. Leave it to dry for 3 or 4 hours;
  6. Varnish;
  7. Paint the plastic caps, Celena used fabric;
  8. Count how many boards your box has on the base and use 1 cap for each board/side, Like in picture;
  9. Nail or super glue the cap on the wood board;
  10. Use 1 circle of felt on each cap to prevent scratching your floor.
Thank you Celena!

Et voil√°!
