It was an old one that I don't think ever once told the correct time and always looked out of place in my once bright blue-now gray room. However, I grew accustomed to the (rather loud) sound it made and cannot fall asleep without it.
What to do?
As a major fan of halloween, I searched extensively online to find a good subtly-eery picture that I liked. I decorate my room for halloween so I this was a great time to revamp this clock.
Here is the new version. You can no longer see the hands, but I never used them anyway. Now it fits in with my room, fits in for halloween, and still makes the ticking noise!
Hello. I'm involved in a volunteering club in my high school called Leo Club. It stands for Leadership, Experience, Opportunity.
We have assisted in creating recycling bins for our school, done fund raisers, helped with our local campus's annual Trash to Treasure sale, and much more.
Today was our first meeting of the year and we were brainstorming ideas for this coming year.
Does anyone have any ideas for a semi-large group of teenagers? It would be helpful if the ideas didn't require sewing or advanced knitting/crochet techniques. We would also like them to be upcycling [read: recycling into something better], ideas for better recycling habits, etc. but they don't have to be recycling.
I didn't know where to post this, but since it's for a jewelery box I thought I'd try here.
I bought this really awesome vintage jewelery box today for $3! I love the outside, so I don't think that will change. The inside has two layers, a top shelf and the main part of the box. The top shelf had these ugly red separators that I removed. The bottom has the same ones, but with three large separators instead.
I was thinking about lining it with fabric but I'm not so sure how to do that. Should I do it over top of the separators? Or should I cut a piece of cardboard and cover that? Is there something else I could use in place of fabric to line it? I once lined the inside of a mint tin with a Starbucks cardboard sleeve and it turned out cute.
I'm moving into my brother's old room. It is sort of small, but large enough to reasonably fit a queen sized bed and computer desk. those will both be on one wall of the room. I just need to figure out what to do with the other side.
the room is square with a notch for the closet.
The walls are going to be a light gray color and the trim around the closet will be lime green. The closet doors are being removed and will be replaced with curtains. The trim around the windows are going to be bright pink or yellow (I haven't decided yet)
Does anyone have creative storage ideas? Or just cool ideas for a teen room in general? I am going to be 17 soon, so this room will need to last me until college.
My style is casual, eclectic, at times kitschy. I like bright colors and have a TON of stuff (i'm kind of a pack-rat). I need to store about 100 DVDs, about 100 books, about 100 pairs of shoes (just kidding, probably less than 50) and assorted odds-and-ends.
Also, if anyone has ideas about how to display perfume bottles, they would be greatly appreciated. Right now they're on a vintage mirrored tea tray but it takes up too much desk space.
This is a present for my friend's birthday. Her name is Sophia. I wanted to do something inexpensive and creative and so I went to Michaels planning to get a "S" that I could cover in a great fabric for her to hang on her wall, but instead came up with making a mosaic using colors from her newly decorated room. It is blue and beachy. I bought some sea glass, little mirrors, and the "S." The seashells are from my own personal collection, as are the little jewels.
She seemed to really like it so I am pleased.
Comments would be appreciated. Sorry for the low quality of the photos. They are from my phone.
