1  The Chairs are finally done!!! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by monstergramma on: March 10, 2012 05:55:21 PM
Finally got the hideous 70's herculon chairs done.  Gone from Junky to Swanky and modern, looking good with the tripod lamp.

2  A lamp-nuff said in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by monstergramma on: October 11, 2011 06:02:10 PM
this is a lamp I made from an old telescope tripod found at a garage sale for $3.00 and a garage sale shade.

Oh and the chairs are my next project, just looking for the perfect fabric.

3  Ok, I'm hooked. My first fabric bowls in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by monstergramma on: September 20, 2011 10:09:41 AM
I couldn't help myself, thinking about making these kept me awake at night.  The first one is made from a wild looking orange/yellow/purple stripes..the other one is a very subltle tone on tone dupioni silk stripe.  Love them...

4  Re: Ideas for recrafting these drawer pulls? in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by monstergramma on: August 11, 2011 09:20:18 PM
If you are going to stain them a darker color, just fill the holes with wood putty and stain over it so they don't show and then you can drill a hole and use another kind of knob, maybe a sleek brushed aluminum.  I just redid a crappy old white dresser set into a cool espresso with silver knobs and I believe they came out awesome.  I didn't strip cause they aren't worth the effort so I painted them Kona Brown (valspar from Lowe's) and the finished off with a coat of Minwax Polyshades in Bombay Mahogany and it matches my Malm bed from Ikea perfectly.

6  Bronco Chair in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by monstergramma on: July 19, 2011 01:53:59 PM
Ok, so I had this chair and it looked kind of like this:

Boring, faux leather, mine was clawed by cats.  I also have a son-in-law who loves the Denver Broncos, Voila, Bronco chair:

I don't care about the Broncos one way or another, but I do think the chair came out awesome.
