11  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Sailboat Wall Hanging on: October 07, 2008 06:11:49 PM
My room mate and I had a pretty large spot on our wall with nothing to hang... so this is what I did to put there. I just bought a map, cut 5X5 inch squares, covered them with the road map, and painted sailboats. I've been wanting to do a wall hanging for awhile now, so it was fun to do this one. Hope you enjoy =)

(P.S. no matter how hard I try I can't get them all to hang straight... so please excuse the crookedness)







(this one is pretty much the same as the first picture, but here it is anyway)

Last summer my dad helped me build a coffee table (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=261880.msg2935847#msg2935847) so this summer my dad helped me build a book shelf! I did the same finish as the book shelf (super dark with a black glaze), and then I painted the trim at the bottom. Here's the finished product!













Thanks for looking! =)

thanks everyone!!

to make the circles i actually made a single spiral, but there are like cross braces of wire coming from the center and radiating out to keep it all in one flat plane. ...i hope that made sense. heh

So, I've been wanting to post this for so long but haven't gotten a chance.... so YAY for this happening!

Number one of two lamps:

I began by making beaded circular coasters, but then I realized how cool they looked in the light and decided to make a lamp shade. So I made 18 of them (at about 2-3 hours each...whew) and wired them together. then I added these cool fish beads in the diamonds between the coasters. I found a white lamp at a thrift store with like rings of light colors (something from a baby's room) and stripped the wood, stained it, glazed it, and painted turquoise stripes. annnnnd here is the finished product!!

I hope you craftsters enjoy it! =)




















Lamp number two:

This lamp was an ugly brass, gold-colored floor lamp with an off-white crinkly shade (the typical ones). So I spray painted the stand, dry brushed it with dark brown (which you can't really see in the pictures =/) and completely altered the shade. I ripped off the white, covered it with navy satin, and painted with acrylics on it. Finally I wanted some sort of fringe but didn't want beads, so i sandwiched ribbon between pennies and hung them off it. Here is the final lamp. Hope you craftsters approve!! =)
