21  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Grid-Lock Shelving: Any Tips on how to make them? on: October 20, 2006 12:06:32 PM
Hmmm... I don't know how well I will be able to explain this, but bear with me. You could make or go to Target or Wal-mart for the individual cube shelves. I know Target has some that I think are $7-$10 per piece, can't remember the price exactly. But once you get those made or bought, you can take some regular wood glue, and a few nails or screws (screws will hold better if you want to put heavier items on the shelves) and just kind of connect them together. I think that would even look better than the one on the site.
Then you can paint whatever color (actually, you should probably do that first), organize them in any shape you want. And then put up!
Or if you don't want to do that much work (wouldn't take too terribly long), you can always check out Ikea, they have some cool shelving units.
22  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Upholsetering headboard on: October 20, 2006 11:54:08 AM
Well, here's the lowdown. My boyfriend and I bought a fancy bed with a fancy wood frame, thinking it was all groovy, we'd have it the rest of our lives. Ha! Don't ever spend tons of money on particleboard! (I'd like to let it be known, while looking in the store, they totally fooled us that it was partical board or MDF, whatever that horrible, flimsy, fake wood is.) Anyways, so theres a great wooden simple frame with the basic headresting part of the headboard done in that crap.
Okay, done with my long rant, now I would like to be able to sit up in bed and read without breaking the headboard (you laugh, but trust me there a few cracks from both of us). And I have seen on all the design shows, them cool people redoing headboard with batting and a uber cool fabric. I want that!
So, I think I have the basic concept down, any suggestions from experiences, anyone may have? It would be much appreciated!

PS I did a search but couldn't find anything, if I missed it, just point me in the direction! Thank you tons!
