1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Nightstand redo on: April 09, 2012 02:45:49 PM
I used a composite leaf that I got at the craft store... the basic process is to sand and then spray the piece with spray adhesive, and then apply the leaf. I finished with a clear spray enamel to protect the leafing. Silver leafing is pretty easy, I used a mix of the loose leaves and some "ready leaf" because that is what was available at my craft store. The loose leaf was a bit messier/more delicate, but I actually preferred it because I thought it made for more even coverage, and it was easier to work around curves etc.

I found these kinda ugly nightstands at the goodwill... they were really cheap, but not very attractive.


I like the look of those mirrored nightstands at pier one, but they are kinda pricey, so I decided to try my hand at silver leaf... I also filled in the holes from the old hardware and bought pretty new knobs. I ran out of silver leaf before finishing the second one, so I need to make a trip to Michael's for a few more supplies Wink

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Coffee table refurb on: April 08, 2012 03:02:40 PM
I got this coffee table for free from a friend, but my taste is a bit girlier than hers, so I decided to refinish it...


Here is the after! I think I am actually going to use it as a TV stand...
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Wall Hanging on: April 08, 2012 03:00:31 PM
I got this wall hanging free from a friend when I moved to my new apartment, but it's a bit traditional for my style...


So I sanded, primed, and painted it! Here it is now, in my kitchen!

I received from CDEeeek a few days ago, sorry it's taken me so long to post!

She sent me photos of myself from a costume party last year, but she altered them to look antiqued... Including one in a frame:


And also, this cute scrapbook full of fun vintage inspiration!


Here is a sample page from the inside Smiley

It went well! I found a great apartment and have been working at the new job for a week and a half! I don't quite have all the normal furniture a person should have yet (i.e. my living room is completely empty), but picking things out and decorating (crafting?) will be fun anyways!

I got my hat from Alchamy513! I've actually had it for a couple days, but I was bad about taking pics right away... It's super cute- kind of a slouchy/beret with a lacy pattern!







Sorry for the crummy photos- I didn't have anyone around to help me take them, so I had to do the old arms-length-on-the-iphone thing.

Thanks so much Alchamy!

I'm going to finish mine and send it out this week... I just found out I'm moving to the other side of the country this month (new awesome job), so I need to finish up my swaps before I go! Woot!
