1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My Craftrooom, Cleaned And Organized on: March 29, 2007 03:58:49 PM
It's been ten months since we moved into this apartment, and FINALLY the room is cleaned and organized. It was where we put EVERYTHING while we were unpacking, so it was a huge mess.

This is the bookcase right next to the door. The boxes hold incomplete projects, because I can never finish something before going on to something new.


Yarn and fabric storage. My yarn stash is too big.


The Comic Book Chair. Most annoying project ever. I've been working on it on and off for months: decoupaging old comic books onto this chair. I should not have chosen a chair with round spindles, it's a pain in my butt. Someday I'll finish it.



I like to hang random things above the bookcase. Originally, I tried to put up shelves, but the apartment is old and I couldn't find any studs, just lathe board. The mittens are mismatches because I spun the yarn on my drop spindle, but I didn't spin enough for matching pairs.




This is from the window looking towards the door. That's our cat, Totoro. Usually I keep my spinning wheel covered with a sheet because he loves to try and chew through the drive band. String is Toti's greatest enemy, he'll swallow thread right off the spool.


So Orson doesn't get jealous, here's his picture. He's on this grass-green piece of fun fur that I got at a Jo-Ann store's closing for ninety cents a yard. Orson has fallen in love with this fabric, and just lays on it and purrs.

What is the name of the reading nook couch thingy? I tried looking for it on Ikea's website, but couldn't find it. :-(
I really, really want one now. I've fallen in love with what you did! It looks so good!

I love how you used the panel curtains: I would never have thought to use a different color in the middle of two others. It looks great.
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Re: Fairy Wings - What type of paint to use?? on: January 16, 2007 10:54:48 PM
I am in the process of making a ton of fairy wings, the same way you are. High-gauge wire with white knee-highs pulled over them.

I use acrylic paint, and mix it in a plastic cup with water: half paint, half water. Then I stir it, and start painting. I like how the paint bleeds and leaves a nice fade effect: it looks cool if you have a lighter shade/color on the middle of the wing and it fades to a darker color or shade around the edges. Sometimes it takes three or four coats before I get the color saturated enough for my taste. Then I go nuts with glitter glue (because who doesn't like glitter?) making patterns on the wings. When I'm done, I spray it with one of those clear coat finish things (not sure what it's called). I don't know if the clear coat finish actually does anything, but I like to think it makes the pantyhose stronger.

I made a pair for my boyfriend's niece's 5th birthday back in April, and she plays with them all of the time. They haven't ripped or gotten too badly bent, and she's requested another pair of wings for her next birthday so she doesn't have to take turns when she has a friend over.

That is TEH AWESOME. I'm trying to think of what else I can do that to, instead of just silverware.

Great idea.

Is that an IKEA end table?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: i like plaid. you should too! my first dress was a success. on: January 02, 2007 06:25:38 PM
Great job on the dress. The belt completely makes the outfit, it makes the dress look more "dressy" and flirty.
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Post your picture of your UNIQUE STORAGE SOLUTION on: January 02, 2007 05:29:49 PM

I have a lot of bags and not a lot of spaces to store them--so I hung an old curtain rod on the wall and used drapery rings to clip them up.


YAY! I have been trying to figure out a way to display my frighteningly large purse collection for MONTHS. Shelves don't work because the walls in my apartment aren't sturdy enough, but a curtain rod will totally do the trick!

Thank you thank you thank you thank you! You're brilliant!

Holy crap, that's AMAZING.

You have awed me with your skill. Grin
