1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Babys Furniture on: November 17, 2009 04:53:47 AM
Rather than spend money on new furniture for my expectant daughter, I decided to refurbish 3 pieces of old stuff which was mine from when I was little. A chair, 3 draws and a mini wardrobe. This was my first time refurbishing a chair and im tempting to steal it for myself Cheesy


The lush laura ashley fabric i got from the market.


The finished product painted white, new webbing, foaming and material (excuse the food in the background!).


3 peice chest of draws. White with pink cherry blossoms and blue and pink kurt hasley birdies on.






And finally my favourite her mini wardrobe. My boyfriend knocked out the shelf and put in a rail. which is now stuffed full of all the clothes, winter suits we been given. it looks so cute but i dont want to see another cherry blosssom for a looooong while!



She's currently going to be in our room as we plan to move early next year Cheesy
 Just need our baby now!




2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A Strippers Dressing Table on: November 15, 2009 08:01:23 AM
No im not a stripper actually but I do have one on my newly revamped dressing table =] Is anyone familiar with freecycle? I managed to pick up a gorgeous kidney bean dressing table with cut glass and matching stool. The dressing table fabric had to go which was a nasty faded pink but the wood itself was in great condition so i didn't need to sand anything off - yay!



The nasty faded pink material that im not quite sure what to do with. Only kept it for measuring purposes.



All stripped bare and removed any tacks around the outside



Painted 2 coats pink, crystal knobs in place.



I then scowered the internet for a stripper stencil and luckily found a half decent one. I used simple black spray paint and touched up any major bleeding with the rest of the pink paint I had. Voila finished complete with glass.



Like i said i kept the material that went around the edges so hopefully I can get a black curtain made up. Dealing with material and sewing is not my best point.My bf also bought me a french mirror which im spray painting black and attaching some jewels to but thats another project Wink Either way I loves it my new dressing table=]


3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Which type of Glue, Suggestions please :) on: November 15, 2009 07:18:23 AM
I was wondering if anyone can offer advice on which type of glue i should use/works best when gluing rhinestones and embelishments to hard back things - not material. Glue gun? pva? Hardware glue? I live in the uk so please bare in mind when suggesting. I'm struggling to find a decent glue that will do the job for covering an item I have.
