I love the tulip skirt and I am even a boy.  Seriously it is so cute.

Last summer I was going to hinge together a couple old doors to make a divider for the attic.  I ended up deciding I liked it as one big room, but I still really want to do this sometime, it could look really cool.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I've been conducting experiments with coffee, tea, and root beer, and they aren't working very well, the wood is barely changing color.  I might look for some acrylic paint and try that, but I'll probably end up using boring regular woodstain.  I have some other kinda cool ideas for the boxes too, so I might still post pictures somewhere on here when they're done.

I'm planning on making some wooden record cubes pretty soon, and I can't decide if I should leave the wood plain, paint it, or try to stain it.  I really want to stain it, but I don't want to use just regular wood stain.  Has anybody tried using anything cool for staining before?  I know some people have used coffee, how does that work exactly?  What else is there?  Thanks dudes!
5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:vinyl's cool but what about old tapes? on: April 03, 2004 03:45:10 PM
A few days ago I pulled apart a tape to make a... wall... thing of one of my favorite bands, TV on the Radio.  

I used tiny cut up pieces of poster squares to hold the tape to the wall, but that was a huge pain, and there's probably an easier way to do it.

One college apartment I had, I hung a few old records on the wall for decoration. For added umph, I hung an old cassette tape, and pulled the tape out, stringing it around the records and around the walls. It looked pretty cool.

That sounds awesome, I'm going to try something like that.  Because I definitely don't have enough crap taped to my walls already.

oh dude, maybe you could even write something with all the pulled out tape?  This has potential to be so cool.  I'll start trying stuff and posting pictures if it works.

You know how girls boil (i think?) toothbrushes and then twist them into bracelets and stuff?  Maybe you could boil a few of your old ones (or just buy a few new ones) and twist them into some kind of  holder.

One of my friends bought a whole lot of 7-inches (tons of old ones at thrift stores, they usually only cost like a dime or quarter) and hung them in a line all the way around the top of his room, it looked really cool.

Awesome, thanks for the link!  I was looking for something similar a long time ago but gave up because they all cost money.

You can always just open the form in mspaint or something, and write the letters in there, too.  It won't look exactly like your handwriting, but it'll save the trouble of making sure everything's lined up right.

This is really cool, I'll have to try it soon.

Does anybody know if etching cream comes in any other colors?  You think it would be possible to dye it?
