2091  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need a Desk! on: April 12, 2008 06:18:28 PM
Find 2 matching pieces for support-file cabinets,bedside tables,storage drawers. Get a sheet of plywood cut to size for the top.Cover with paint,or fabric,or contact paper. Or use an old door.Find a cool old table at goodwill,ect. Put a couple of drawers under it on each side for storage.Or if your city has a freecycle or craigslist, check it out.Ask for a desk,or just check frequently for people giving furniture away.

Use the door for storage. Hang up one of those shoe organizers and use the pockets to hold stuff,maybe hang one on each side of the door. Someone here made one with pockets from old jeans.Maybe also one of those hanging wire baskets you see in kitchens-you know,3 wire mesh baskets,separated by chain,hangs from the ceiling? For lightweight stuff.And for stuff you don't need to get to often-skinny flat boxes under the bed,and under the couch.Hang pegboard on the wall

How about if the outside of the bottle was decorated with a fairy-glass paint,etching,ect.? Or a little scuply fairy sitting on top of the cork? You could fill the bottle with sparkly glitter,tiny silk flowers, or maybe a different scroll?

Roanefaery, I love the harley quinn icon!

Whee,I boxed everything up tonight! I was driving myself crazy trying to perfect things-and honestly,they're as good as they're gonna get. Plus I had the house to myself for a few brief shining hours. I found one lonley roll of the perfect paper at family dollar. It was enough for most of the things,yay! I had to use such a big box to allow for wonky shaped items and packing.
Now I can start worring about everything making it there in one piece...

I just found the perfect kitchsy thing to make a fun craft with-if I have a partner who won't mind one item dealing with tropical islands. It was so hysterical, I had to buy it today!

I bought 4-5 things that had crafty possibilities,5 books,1 shirt for me,22 tops,4 slacks,3 purses and 3 dresses for her.Spent 113.00. I love Goodwill.
22 tops? Wow, you must be a shopping goddess! Smiley  I have a few local thrift stores I love too but I dont think Ive ever made out that good! My favorite thing though is to take the items home and torture my manfriend with guess how much I paid for this? ahhhe hates that game. Tongue

Hee, I love playing that game! My daughter is the shopping goddess-those tops were for her. She outgrew everything from last year.Just 2.00 a shirt, and today's Sears ad had plain old tank tops for 18.00. Sears, for pete's sake! That's not even a pricy department store.Whenever I go shopping with DD, I usually find diddly squat for me, and lovely,fancy things that even still have tags on for her.She has a gift.
And to get back to crafting, I found a cute little thing for the sea swap today that I'll have to tuck in my partner's package. Or make as part of a larger craft if it's a theme she  likes.Hmmm....

Arrgh! I'm in landlocked kentucky-you are all making me exceedingly jealous with all the ocean pictures! Lovely,all of them.

I want one so bad! Man, wish I'd thought of that instead of just the magnetic poetry kit I did for the swap. Great idea-I think I'll make one for myself one of these days(giving you full credit of course!). I'd like to do that with my middle schooler. Hey, you have to expose the kids to the classics,right? Grin
Again,great idea!
