1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Beach house lighting on: October 15, 2012 01:43:03 PM
Hi!  I'm hoping someone can help me come up with ideas for lighting  for our beach home.  We have a room off of our living room that has a ceiling fan (white wicker blades/white fan)  & a ceiling light fixture.  I am replacing the fixture with another.  I LOVED the Ikea Maskros hanging ball light, but even the small one was way too big & hangs too long.  My husband would like something of a novelty "beach" themed light.  We need a flush mount or a semi-flush.  I had seen a couple antique flush mounts for kids rooms that had sailboats painted on them.  Cute idea, but couldn't find any to buy.  I am crafty & can certainly take something & make it into something "beachy", but I don't want to use shells (already done that for screened patio light) & don't want a nautical pendant light.  Anyone any ideas one where to buy something cool or what to make cool?

I don't think it's hard.  I have reupholstered my dining room chairs to match the valance in the dining room. Just measure the size of the seat, get the fabric, turn chair upside down, unscrew the seat, lay the fabric over the seat & staple gun on the back.  Put seat back on & screw the screws.....new dinning room chairs!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Coat rack from an old wood ironing board??? on: August 19, 2011 09:21:24 PM
I would like to make a coat rack for my laundry room using an antique wooden ironing board.  I was thinking of decoupaging it with photos of children doing laundry like the picture "Busy Day in Dollville" w/little girl washing the doll clothes.  Any ideas?Huh?  Suggestions??? I could also use a tabletop size metal & somehow screw the hooks into the metal & then attach to wall.  Just throwing some things around trying to decide  Smiley

Could you blow up a balloon (depending on his size) that would "cover" from shoulders to below butt & cover it w/paper mache, then paint it?  And hollow out the inside to go over his head? Somehow add straps to go over his shoulders?  I've seen people make paper mache costumes, but never done it myself.  I would love to see a pic of this!

Thanks!  I will post pics when done!  At 10 pm Monday night she tells me that they are to dress like their favorite video game character & wants to dress as "Princess Peach" from Mario.  She wants to know if I have any pink fabric to make her a dress.....@ 10pm!  Ugh!  So, of course, I go into my stash & pull out pink fabric & make a quick Halloween costume dress for her.  Took a couple of hours & she actually wore it yesterday!!!  She said she got a lot of compliments!  I guess w/Candyland being the HC theme, they are to "dress" in different "game" outfits all week.  Today, favorite character from Clue.  So, I'm thinking Miss Scarlett because she has an amazing HC long red dress from 2 yrs ago.  I could make a cute, short, shrug.  Noooooo....she wants to wear sweats today!  Teenagers!

Thanks for the great suggestions!  The skirt is only going to be worn once at the homecoming game.  The theme of the homecoming dance is "Candyland".  She & her friends that have football players/band member dates want to make t-shirts saying "Sweetest Date Ever" & she wanted to have something else "sweet" to wear.  After many rough drafts, we have decided on cloth.  I was able to get some stretchy black fabric for $1.47/yd.  She is tiny, so one yd. was enough.  She will be wearing purple leggings.  I stitched a seam up the back of the fabric, after folding the fabric over about 4 times.  It is somewhat sheer & folding it over helped the "see thru" of it.  She can just slip it on now.   I am tacking small cupcake papers pressed flat all over the skirt & then I'm going to hot glue wrapped candy pieces on to the cupcake papers.  I do need to think about her sitting in the car to go to the game.  After that, who cares?  Actually, I'm hoping she can pull off the candy & give to friends at the bonfire after game!  Of course, she will have to bring a pair of shorts to pull on  Roll Eyes

My daughter needs a skirt made of candy.  I'd like to somehow make this for her.  She was thinking saran wrap with candy glued on.  It's an idea, but I would love to hear if anyone has made anything like this that could offer suggestions!  Thanks!!
