1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My NEW DIY "mahogany" and "antique" pine headboard on: October 02, 2006 09:46:37 AM
So, we just moved into a new home, our first home.  

We have a HUGE bedroom, and our little double bed sits on one wall, looking lonely.  We recently noticed that the lack of a headboard meant the wall behind the bed was getting stained by... well... whatever.

I woke up one morning with the idea for this headboard, and rushed out and bought the supplies right away!  I am very pleased with how it turned out - it's all the same wood, just stained different shades.





This majestic thing cost me less than 50$ all told - wood, stain, brushes, screws, felt, etc....

I'm so excited to be able to share it!

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first Craftster-inspired project! on: August 18, 2006 02:00:23 PM
So, after much looking and scheming on how to make my very grown-up little sister (she's 28, and a midwife) a grown-up purse, and having NEVER made a purse before, I jumped in with both feet and made her something using a piece of suede I bought years ago on ridiculous sale - 3.99$!

This is my first project made entirely because I was TOTALLY inspired by what was posted on these pages, so I wanted to show you folk what fruit your crafty sharing produces!

I created the pattern myself after reading about building bags on these pages, and I must say I am very pleased with the results.

The details:  The purse is chocolate-brown suede, two pieces.  I salvaged the magnetic clasp from a Value Village vinyl purse.  The lining is made from old curtains (clean, though!), and I used a piece of an old shoebox to stiffen the base and keep its shape.  The eyelets that go through the suede to let the lining show were kicking around from an old project.



Hope the picture loads!
