1  purple and red...great combination! in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by miep on: February 25, 2013 10:46:26 AM
Hi there craftsters,

It has been a long time since my last visit here.
I really don`t know why....because this is the best site ever with all you nice and crafty people.
Anyway...today i showed some projects i posted on craftster in the past to someone who was interested,
and now i feel like sharing some new things i have done and i also can`t wait to see all the other great projects that you made.

Since my last visit here i moved twice, and here are the pics of my new livingroom and kitchen.

Starting with the kitchen:

I made the bottoms of my lampshades myself

And the kitchentable is made with a little help from my kids.
First i painted it purple, and then we all put stickers for a cool pattern.
Then painted it yellow(ish) and peel the stickers off.
My kids always show to everyone which flower/pattern they made.

Ok and here is my livingroom.

We want to make a new bookcase (a little bit industrial), the tv will be replaced by a flat model that we can hide behind the big painting. And we have to shuffle with some other furniture and  then it is finished.
I will post pics when it is totally ready, but i could not wait any longer ;-)
Let me know what you think of it.

Thank you!

Very, very inspiring!  Could you give us a little detail on how you made the side table? What did you use for the top and bottom shelve?


I tried to make a sort of tutorial with paint, i hope you understand what i mean.

I am driven to comment by this awesome room.  I love how you didn't just pick out a lurid green and do everything in that color.  You added so many details and such thoughtfulness to everything.  I am in love with your side table (have been wanting something similar, but need it very narrow and short to fit under a window), and your clock+stocking+ stool is great!  Love the ingenuity and creativity. 

When are you coming to do my house next? 

Thank you,
just make the side table yourself to make it fit.
I have a stocking-fetish lately...i wrap them around almost everything tables, vases, cushions etc...

4  Little girl grows big, my daughters room in progress in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by miep on: March 15, 2011 10:50:31 AM
After the nice comments on my green diningroom https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=375574.0
 i decided to share another room i am working on.
I have to finish the molding to the ceiling and buy a new floor and then it is finished.
(oh and when i have the time someday i want to reupholster the blue chair)

My daughter loved her room before, but now she is 12 and needed a more grown up room.
She helped painting and decorating the room, she even bought a lot of the accessories and the lovely lamp from her birthdaymoney.

I made the desk myself by using an old cabinet, the legs are candleholders (because the normal legs were very expensive and these were even nicer)

the top of the desk is with wallpaper and glass on top of it.

on her table i made the pattern of the wallpaper in the corners.

And she had red blinds that were good, but in the wrong color...i decided to put some nice brown fabric with little blue and lightbrown stripes all over on the old blinds, and i reused them.

This is the before:

5  my green diningroom. (new pics + sort of tutorial for the side table on page 3) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by miep on: March 15, 2011 07:48:25 AM
I have almost finished my new diningroom (some little things left to do)
And i wanted to show it to you all!!!

I wanted a side table, but they were expensive.
So i started looking for an old table to cut in half and use for my project.
Unfortunately they all had the wrong size for me, so i decided to make one myself.
I bought 2 table legs and some wood and moldings and started.
The table legs were to short for the height i wanted, so i used PVC for the lowest part and painted the whole thing.

here is a before and after.
I hated the fireplace, but i did not have the money to build/buy myself a new one.
So when i saw the bricks were on sale i pimped it myself.
Some molding on top and finished

Friends gave me an old chair that i reupholstered.

I made a little table from an old clock a stool and a stocking

An old painting became a rosette, because there was a hole in the ceiling when i moved the lamp.

(i even pimped my old lamp)
painted all my furniture too.

Oh and i found a new picture from the shelf, i put the same wallpaper around it so the stripes continue. The frames were my old doorsteps, with some leftover fabric from my curtains inside.

Tell me what you think

6  carnival!!! in Costumes: Completed Projects by miep on: March 07, 2011 11:09:00 AM
Hi there,

I am so proud on the carnival costumes i made for my kids.
My daughter wanted to be a cow, and my son wanted to be a banana.
As always i started too late (a week before they needed the costumes) but i finished them in time.
I didn`t have a pattern or a plan, just started to play with some foam and see what came out.
here are the pics, let me know what you think.

since 2711 didn`t post pics yet, i will post my own pics.
this is the magazine that i found,

it was hard to choose a magazine because the most of them were foiled, so icouldn`t see what was inside.
i had a hard time to find some inspiration, but this is what i came up with.

a bracelet fron cantabs.

the cute doggy for her keys.

some magnets ala dita von teese.

and a purse with gun.

i also made one for her phone.

i hope you like it 2711.

she made me a notebook as promised Wink and a card with a dragon on the enveloppe

a make-up bag with dragons on it, but i am using it for my pencils etc.

ok...are you ready?
here comes the great package that i recieved from zuliblu.
she really really spoiled me, she even asked if there was something from california that i would like to recieve...that was so sweet.

she made me some pirate earrings...that my daughter liked and she stole them from me hihi.
she also made me some handpainted clothes hangers, a beautifull apron, some amazing paperdolls in moulin rouge style, she also send me a mug and a keychain from california, and last but not least...the magazine...that is actually a book (it sure looks like a book instead of a magazine) is so cool/beautifull.

ok here are some pics to make you very jealous!
the earrings:

the california items:

look at the little detail of the apron:

i really really love these paperdolls:

and here the outside of the magazine, and some pics from where she got her inspiration:
