1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / boring bed transformation ideas? (5 images) on: February 06, 2008 01:23:45 PM
hello all,

ok, so currently my bed is very blah. it is a straightforward rectangle with absolutely no style. here are some pictures to help you get the gist...

i would love to have a bed more antique victorian, such as...


does anyone have any creative ideas how to achieve this look? or am i better off buying a new bedframe??
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / old desk redo on: January 07, 2008 05:07:46 PM
hey y'all!

so, i have this old, 2.5 X 1.25 ft. desk in my room. it is mainly a light, shallow blue with a cream pullout keyboard slat. it has definitely seen its wear and tear-

1. paint bald spots
2. some chemical/water bubbles
3. nail polish stains  Smiley

i am redo-ing my whole room in a loft-arty-hipster theme. for example, i am doing a faux plaster-over-brick texture in white on my walls, i have picked up some quirky/mod pieces of art, and plan to keep it minimal with spurts of color throughout the room. Any ideas for redo-ing this old desk, keeping in the simplistic, arty loft, style??

thanks, Tabitha
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / glamourous scrub- a great gift (or for indulging yourself =]) on: June 08, 2007 12:26:46 PM
Ok this is my first "bath and beauty" thing...
i LOVE audrey hepburn-especially in breakfast at tiffany's- so i made some glam audrey scrub for my friend. the scrub itself is just olive oil and brown sugar, but i really like the way the bottle turned out. i just traced audrey's pic on some notecards, glued them on, sealed it with modge podge, and tied a little ribbon. comments welcome.

ok this is sideways i know but its the overall shot.

close up of the face...

and theres a face on top but i'll add that pic latr.

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / re-vamped/recycled pencil holder/flower pot, shelf, and vase!! ( on: May 05, 2007 12:25:48 PM
hello all-

here are all the revamped/recycled crafts in my room. they were created anywhere from a year ago to yesterday. i hope everyone enjoys them! comments are appreciated.

first up, i revamped my old 6th-grade woodshop project with some yellow paint and a LOT of glitter. (sorry for the shaky image)

second, i took an old jar and splatter-painted the insides.

and last but not least, i recycled my old tilt perfume container into a pencil/paperclip holder! also shown: a mini flowerpot i painted with nail polish. it's hard to see but there are purple, red and gold stripes.

thanks for viewing!
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Glamourous Room- PLEASE VIEW on: May 03, 2007 03:36:07 PM
hello all-
OK I'm not sure if this is supposed to go here, put its apart of my room...

I'm trying to make a "glam"-themed room for myself (think chandeliers and Audrey Hepburn) so I've made/upgrade certain things to give a glitzy touch. my challenge for my fellow craftsters is to send me any possible ideas or crafts to complete my luxurious look.

Thanks everyone and I can't wait to see your ideas!

Here are my projects...
1.a "breakfast at tifffany's" magnet
2.a glam dispay of gold-painted seashells (hand-done) and vintage chains
3.an old jar repainted in silver and glitter by me (sorry for the shaky image)
4. my name, GLAM-IFIED! Smiley

this slice of cake was so simple and really fun. everything is felt with the exception of the side frosting (cotton balls)and sprinkles (beads). YUM!!

10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / easy-to-embroider tote on: April 12, 2007 06:32:26 PM
does anyone know a good online store (or one in MN) that would sell a blank canvas tote that would be easily embroidered? i'm trying to blow up this design and stitch on a bag.


i'm thinking the yellow one or the one next to it. Smiley
