Awww, I wish I could do this!  If I'd signed up when I first found the site, I coulda lol.

Perhaps we can have a second run?

I moved the bed last night a 3 am lol.  That's what the hubby gets for playing Warcraft too late at night!  He agrees now, the feng shui is better. Cheesy 

I need to clean up a tad, and I can post some pictures.

Ooh, that's a great idea!  I get it now.  Sorry, haven't had my caffiene intake for the day lol.

maehem, there is this local free women's mag around here that has really long formats!  Maybe you could try to find a big ol' magazine like that!

ohh! we have one here like that called maggie may or something like that! good idea! ...you don't live in florida, do you?! Wink

I live in the Charleston SC area, and ours is called Skirt!  Smiley

My hubby used to be a pro painter, and they used to do this in modern spaces.  Try painting the ceiling a color and bring it down a few inches to get the look!  I can't get a picture of this, but it looks good depending on if the ceiling colors and the wall colors harmonize.  A white ceiling with a royal blue wall would look a bit silly like this IMHO.

I thought of something cool.  I could make some of those letters out of cardboard in some really cool font.  Perhaps "I love you" in Czech, to play off of the Prague thing?

I totally AGREE with you on the moving the bed part.  It's been an issue of arguement for us lol.  I hate the way I feel trapped under that low wall.  hahaha

The arch actually comes into 4 parts, so this sounds totally doable.  The only problem is that the only house we could afford to buy was a doublewide, and the walls totally suck eggs for mounting things too.  Perhaps someone could have ideas on how to get that to work in sucky sucky wallboard?  (i can't wait until we're rich and famous in like 40 years lol and can afford a historic house downtown!)

I have a crap ton of tulle from a prom project I helped with like 10 years ago.  hmmm.
667  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Are wedding photographers REALLY this expensive!?!?! on: June 01, 2009 10:38:42 PM
Hey, I'm a wedding photog, (and everything else photog, really lol)  My husband and I do weddings for $70/hr.  You get a DVD with retouched images, mix of formal shots and reception coverage, and help with anything I can do for that price. 

I just want to say:  Check out adorama.com.  They have the BEST prints for Walgreen's prices, pretty much.  Why not go with the best, for the same price?!

So, what do you get when you have 2 starving artists trying to run their own business in this economy?  You get an ugly as sin bedroom with tons of stuff all over the floor.  And this leads to the sensitve artist husband (he's a Cancerian), feeling unsexy and overwhelmed.  

Anyone want to help me create an awesome bedroom for cheap or practically free?  The bedroom itself is huge (or at least to someone used to super tiny spaces), something like 16x17 or something like that.  

 This is roughly the layout.  The room starts off with 7 ft ceilings where the head of the bed is and ends up with 9 or 9.5 ft. where the bathroom door is.  Our furniture is very underscaled and the cheapest of thrifted finds.  We're starving artists, remember?  The wall where the bathroom ends seems very very blank and sterile.  We actually have no art on the walls, either.  

We're painting in the palest light green color soon with accents of Chinese red and maybe plum or orange?  The bedspread is a white on white quilt that I love, so no changes there.  I usually prefer super dark almost gothic or moroccan interiors, but the hubby wants to try something lighter for a change.  We'd love it it invoke almost a Charleston feeling, but with a heavy vintage air.  Art Nouveau would be great!  We adore Alphonse Mucha and hope to make a pilgrimage to Prague to see his work a few years from now.

669  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: Keeping toys up high? on: June 01, 2009 10:19:29 PM
Oooh, I did this when I was a wee one.  My mom made a hammock to put stuffed animals in.  Guess where she found me the next morning?!  It's a wonder it didn't come out of the wall, it was just tacked in lol.

Do really watch out for the climbing potential.  I have more scars to this day from climbing haha.

I seriously suggest weeding out the toys severely, child proofing the drawers, etc.  Maybe even making it a "thing" each week or day or something to choose the toys to go on one shelf that's high up, etc.

But after she gets over the climbing thing, you can get a chain with clippies and hang toys off of the clips.  Works well for plushies!

Go office space on it and take some really cool pictures? 

Hey, the cat bed idea is not bad.  I have a printer that would make a VERY appropriate cat litter box!  lol
