11  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Wallies Wallpaper Cutouts on: June 10, 2004 11:02:15 AM
I just wanted to chime in and add my positive wallies experience to the mix- I bought some of the cherries and checkerboards a while back and went a little nuts with them in my kitchen- when I decided they were a little too overwhelming (and  a little too country) for a prime time spot in my kitchen they came down without muss or fuss! In fact, they were still in great condition and I've used several for decoupaging projects since!

I've got a pack of the mary engelbreit scotty dogs just waiting to adorn the walls of our mud room once I get around to painting over the country geese that came with the house... yay wallies!
12  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / stained glass people on: June 10, 2004 10:57:11 AM
Hey there, Mike (my partner) is a talented artist and he wants to try his hand at stained glass.... there is no place locally to buy the supplies and we found a site online that seems reasonable... all except the $300 saw... I guess I'd like to hear the voice of experience tell me what sorts of tools he needs to get into the craft and enjoy it, but won't cost the same as a small car should he decide it's not for him--
thanks for ANY info!!
13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Need help revamping 50's chrome table/ chairs-- on: June 07, 2004 10:17:35 AM
Hi there- I've lurked here for a while now, but I'm truly stumped in my latest undertaking and I'm hoping someone has a terrific idea to help me out! I've been redoing a bunch  50s/ 60s chrome table and chair sets and I've got the sewing and fitting of the vinyl down, the cleaning and touching up of the chrome down but I need an idea for how to re-do the tops! i've thought about decoupaging boomerang or other atomic patterned paper to the top, then coating it, but I can't find the paper. the actual boomerang laminate is too expensive for my tastes and I *know* there has to be a way to DIY (or DIM- do it myself? heh?) any ideas?

specifically- I am trying to recover the worn and faded plastic tops on these old tables. I'd like to find 1. a source for big sheets of retro patterned paper 2. a way to make my own big sheets of cool paper 3. a way to make my own plastic laminate in aforementioned patterns 4. any ideas you may have about what I can do to solve this problem-

THANK YOU!
