I agree with Jen the NYC coffee table could sell for some major bucks!!  I think it's totally wonderful

You can crush colored chalk and mix with water to make a "paint" that you can wash off (so I've read).
113  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Ya'll have inspired me... on: April 30, 2005 09:22:17 PM
I've been reading these boards for the past couple of days and thanks to you I am going to decorate and furnish my new studio apartment for A LOT less money than I originally thought. 

Some of the projects I have planned (some are already started!!):

 :)Refinish and convert 2 cheap bookcases into an entertainment center

 :)Convert 2 plastic three-drawer units and 2 12"X36" boards (joined together and set on top of the drawer units placed back to back) into a coffee table.  The top is going to be decopauged and a "skirt" will be placed around the edges attatched by Velcro

 :)Convert a 2 shelf unit with wheels into an end table/desk for my laptop, printer, and other computer supplies

  :)Cover one wall with fabric stripes and do some ribbon weaving on the same wall to make it look like a large scale plaid pattern. 
 :)Make my own kitchen table and find 2 chairs at the thriftshop or through freecycle and refinish them to match the table (the size of table I need is hard to find and when I can find it is SOOOOOO expensive, I can make the entire table for $35)

The cost for all the above projects under $200 because I already had the bookshelves, plastic drawer units, and the piece I am going to use as the side table.  If I purchased all new furniture to replace all the above projects I would spend close to $750 or more.  My cheaper versions are going to work better for me than anything I could have bought.

 I'm going to get all these projects (except for the wall) done before I move in to the new place August 1st.  I've got a few ideas flowing through my head for the 2 backsplash areas in the kitchen, but those will probably wait until I move in.

Thanks for the inspiration!!!
