Hi all! I'm new (will post some of my projects soon) and have a question...

I have a ton of sheetrock scraps in a variety of sizes left from my husband finishing our basement. There must be *something*that I can make out of them... Anyone have any ideas???

Hello!
I remember seeing a great project on HGTV's "Country Style"; the designer used scraps of drywall (same as sheetrock?) to make wall art by decoupaging images onto them . . . they looked great and had kind of an aged look about them. Here is the link:

Hope that helps!   Smiley

Whoops . . I don't know what I'm doing wrong, because I can't get this link to copy properly.  I just did a copy/paste thing from the address bar. . .is there another way?  Sorry about that.

I'll try again:

Cool, thanks! That's getting the gears turning for me!  Grin  I'll have to report back with what I end up making, although it might be awhile since things are still pretty messy around here.

(BTW - I think your link didn't post right because there was a comma in it. I just copied and pasted the address into my browser and it worked fine to get there, though.)

You can tear off a layer of the paper and then scrub off the remaining paper with a brush or scouring pad.  What remains looks like a piece of flat stone.  You can then carve into it with a sharp insturment or a long nail.  It looks like you have carved into stone.  To take it a little further, you can rub chalk into the carved lines.

Cool! Do you know how I would seal it after I carve it?

I saw a guy on t.v. once take pieces of sheetrock and glue them all over a wall, when he was finished it looked like a slate stone wall. I have been trying to find out the whole process with no luck so far. If anyone figures it out, let me know will ya?
