1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help me organize my fabric stash! please!! on: July 11, 2009 06:31:36 AM
Maybe get a clothes rack and hang big pieces of fabric on hangers? For smaller pieces, keep them organized in bins or those three-tier drawer thingies that have lots of compartments so you can sort by color....
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Futon--making it less futony? on: December 15, 2008 03:24:24 PM
I have a futon and I am very sick of that "futon" look with the wooden arms and all that.   Sad Any suggestions on how I can reupholster it? I threw a sheet over it and it doesn't look right as is. Advice much appreciated!

That looks fabulous! Great job!

Wow 5 coats of paint! That's some dedication. How bad was it sanding it? Did you just use paper and get some elbow grease going?

For the first poster, I would definitely fish around ebay or contact the manufacturer...

In a pinch maybe something like these?





To the last poster, maybe a piece of wood cut to size? Glued with er wood glue? Dunno if it would really work though? Or maybe you can use some strong elastic or rope or something to hold stuff in.

I have painted those very successfully-use a primer first. I prefer to decoupage them-I have one covered in old New Yorker covers

 and several in torn maps.

I'm still working on this one. After you glue the maps on you can polyurethane it.



So you didn't sand it? Just primed then painted?
