21  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / SOS Save this disater from itself on: March 07, 2012 11:02:41 PM
I had to move back with my parnet (and her sister, and her sisters 12 and 10 year old) recently and am now the proud renter of a 10 by 10 hole in the basement.  Its a very small room, my full size bed takes up most of it. I use this room alot to hang out with freinds in too (I have cousins living in the house, who dont know what GO AWAY means). So the room must be funcitional to hang out, have a little romantic fun  Wink and must be clean.  I do have the option of replacing the bed with a double thickness futon. I also have the option of adding a bookcase (or two) and have a few storage benches that can go in there. I just dont know where to start!

(sorry, they wouldnt upload anyplace else nicely)

This is curently the very unmade bed (BAD ME!) you can also see the curtained nightstand next to the bed. THe white bookcase holds some photo albums and my camera collection. The black chair (under the pile of blankets) must stay since its the one chair my back can handle.

Photo 2 is the other side of the room. You can see my blue dresser (matches the walls) and my mirror. This is my makeup area. (the mirror is actually a medicine cabinate, aka storage). THe stand next to the dresser seems to be a catch- all for all kinds of crap but has yet to get a real purpose
.
Photo 3 is a close up of the tv area with my fav. frame (with the stars inside. This area also has a window in it but it is never used. I was thinking I may replace the fish tank stand with a bookcase for extra storage (but dont know if it will look funny cause its not as tall as the one on the other side. It cant be painted) I have also thought about painting the bookcase in ther already.

Photo 4 shows my epic fail attempt at putting up a cushion on the wall. it also shows the boxes I tried to use for a nightstand (another epic fail) and my horse tack collection, which is staying. The cushion has a cover and the quilt for the bed is a nice solid black cover.
22  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / floor cushion on wall? on: March 07, 2012 07:20:54 PM
I dont wanna put holes in it. I treid using wire to go around it and tying the wire on a nail. GOod in theroy but it sags down.  cushion looks like this:http://fabrikate.net/IMG_4638.JPG its big enough for a single person to lay down and just under 5 ft tall.  so how do I get the bugger to day up?
23  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Help! closet disaster! on: January 10, 2011 06:21:35 PM
So I have the smallest closet in the house. Its a fun 5 feet long BUT only 2 feet deep! Problem is I dont have any hanging clothes in it so its large free space. I have a plastic shelving unit that holds almost everything but everythimg keeps falling out! On the other side of the closet I have my dresser. I have no room to put the dresser anywere else. Any ideas? Im sick of picking my wardrobe off the floor and not being able to find anything.  Ps. Only my winter wardrobe is in the closet right now
24  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Fish tank terrium (and cool holder on: December 27, 2010 09:02:33 PM
I needed a home for my plants and a place to mount a grow lamp and also a place (higher up) for the hamster to live. So I got out some 2x4's and got to work and came up with this.
http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r106/flyingbabyb/DSC05368.jpg   Not done yet. Eventually I would like to put a nice plastic or glass front that opens on the front to keep my cats from having a nibble on my greens.
25  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / High windows? NO PROBLEM on: December 27, 2010 08:59:30 PM
So my windows are at the top of my room. This made for some sad furbabies. So I got right to work

Now they can look out the window and it gave me some additional display space.

28  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / basement craft space on: October 09, 2010 10:51:02 AM
How do I make this disaster into a craft space? I have gotten premission to cover the wall under the stairs. I also intend to extend the shelf under the stairs out for a desk. The metal thing is open on the other side so it can be used to hold magizines. Should I spray paint it? As the second picture shows, im stuck dealing with old pipes and only get a curtain for a side wall. my space is about 7 feet deep and around 8 ft accrossed. What can I do to make this look less basementy and more crafty? I do have a rug that will cover some of the floor.

30  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / How to make kitty happy? on: October 02, 2010 09:37:32 AM
So due to the ecomony Im being forced to take my 3 furry babies and move into a tiny basement bedroom (with seprate craft space!). This means my 3 babies have to get along with moms 3 cats (who live next door to my room and have full roam of the basement (as will mine)). Most of my 3 have lived with at least one of moms so this isnt the problem. The problem is I want to make this a happy room and spoil the kittys more. I am planning on making wall mounted cat steps up to my tiny windows. What else can I do? I have one cat who likes to play, one cat that likes being up high and one cat whos whole exisitance revolves around finding someone to pet her.
