2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Do iron-on transfers and comforters mix? on: December 28, 2009 07:09:19 PM
I have a combo home office / guest bedroom with white + black furniture and accessories with a great murphy bed that my husband made.  For the murphy bed I'd like to take a basic white comforter and iron on some 0's and 1's (like a bitstream) in a graphic pattern.

I was really excited about this until I remembered my past experiences with iron-ons where parts of characters didn't transfer over correctly.  I don't want to have to go through dozens of comforters so does anyone have any ideas how to best do this or any tips when working with iron-on transfers?

Thanks in advance!

First I'm very jealous - I'd pick either of those offices over my cube in a heartbeat.

Anywho, I saw this really funky built-in bookshelf on craigslist this morning with diagonal shelves.  What if you make a similar built-in under the desk for some interesting storage.  http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x188/ang_alx/Capture4.jpg

I guess that depends on whether you can build anything in and where you're going to place your desk.

Ok this might be too weird but it might work. If you're not into knick knacks, what if you apply one of those wall decals with a saying in the space.  You can find them at Target or there are a few websites that let you customize your own saying or quote (Google "custom wall decal" or something like that).  

Then if your space allows, put some rope light on top of the cabinet (close to the wall corner so no one can see it).  It will add a soft glow and really bring your eye upward making the room look taller.

I did something similar for the built in china cabinet in my dining room only since this is so low, I lighted it from the top instead of below.  I couldn't come up with anything clever for the quote so I just used a generic one.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Goodbye Boring Graduation Gown on: December 27, 2009 08:09:58 PM
For my son's elementary school graduation, I ordered his cap and gown from here: http://www.rhymeuniversity.com/Preschool_Kindergarten_Basic_Graduation_Package|p37_c20_o0.html

Then I took those iron on letters and ironed on his nickname ("Bubba") to the back  of the robe like a football jersey. I'll try to dig up some pics and post them.

If you wanted you could try some embroidery or appliques.  Good luck!
