11  My new old cabinet in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by evilSabina on: January 24, 2011 12:33:17 PM
I forgot to take pics of the whole thing, but did get pics of the top before the transformation.

The after:

closeup of the groovy knobs we got:

Another closeup:

It looks a little orange, but it's more of a barn red. The hubby scraped the finish off. I painted two coats of raw umber milk paint, topped it with one coat of red milk paint and sealed it with a couple coats of tung oil.

This is what it looked like before:

Okay, here are some photos. I did NOT do all of the work. My husband did most of it, cuz he's awesome and cuz someone has to watch the baby. Smiley

Our concrete countertop and tile backsplash: I helped with the pour and we both worked on the grout. I designed the backsplash.

And our sink cabinet- I designed it, hubby built it. It doesn't show well in the photo, but I painted it with milk paint and then antiqued it-- not too heavily. We'll be installing an apron front sink. The color is more of a French blue-- more subdued than the photo. We haven't made the doors yet.

I LOVE my countertops, but I would not recommend pouring in place-- it's really messy, and continues to be messy as you sand/grind it. It wasn't too bad for us, cuz we couldn't use our kitchen anyway.

17  Tiny Terrarium-- piggy's new home! in CHALLENGE 48 ENTRIES by evilSabina on: March 01, 2010 05:02:36 PM
A former coworker, Phoebe, turned me onto the terrarium craze. Seems like everyone's doing them. I'm all for jumping on the bandwagon if it's a wagon of coolness. And the tiny challenge seemed like the perfect opportunity to make a mossarium.
I figured I could use a baby food jar, but it was 2 1/2 inches. Grr. So I went down to The Scrap Exhange, a creative reuse center, and found the perfect little jar. And a piggy. Total cost? Seventy-five cents.
Piggy seemed a little sparse by himself. I got some toothpicks from my mother-in-law, cut them up and glued them together to make a fence. But... it's a little moist inside piggy's home and the fence fell apart. So instead of getting some outdoor glue, I cut some thin strips of raffia and tied it together. Talk about a PITA!
It still needed a little something, so I figured I'd add a flower. I cut up the hubby's Mountain Dew can and used an industrial staple that I had yanked out of something and Voila! A pretty little flower. I hope you like it!

With the lid on...

19  9 months in the making... a diaper bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by evilSabina on: February 04, 2010 05:11:03 PM
I started this before my son was born. He's now 8 1/2 months. I used Butterick pattern B4560. It didn't actually take 9 months to do, but I found all the pockets annoying to do (and yet so desirable to have), so it was hard to get motivated. I got the fabric at the creative reuse center where I worked, so the only things I bought new were the thread and the keychain swivel clasp.

One of 7 pockets!

lotsa room inside!

and I'll be able to find my keys Smiley

20  Owl crib rail guards in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by evilSabina on: January 31, 2010 06:52:07 PM
So my son has learned to stand up (but not sit back down yet). And so he started eating his crib. Shocked

I made these as quickly as I could. So quickly, that after sewing up and trimming the seams on the first one, I realized the ribbon ties were on the inside. Angry But I have since fixed that, and now he chews on the rail guards instead of his crib.

If you look closely you can see the dog hair that is already on it. Undecided
