1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: KISS!!! on: November 06, 2009 11:28:39 PM
This is really awesome! It takes a lot of work to look like the hottest band in the world.  Hubby officiated a KISS wedding on halloween, he was Peter, groom was Gene, bride was Paul. Great fun!

Makes me want to find an old leather couch to gut!
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Slightly lopsided cupcake stand on: September 07, 2008 02:26:17 AM
It did look better set up and with cupcakes on it. 


Not all of the cupcakes are on it in this pic.  That middle tier is weird.  I did end up using hot glue to make sure the cross pieces were more stable.

And I see other craftsters with even more beautiful stands and I feel sorta defeated.  Wish I could do something as great as theirs.  But, I made do and this is what we had.  It worked out in the end.

Wow, the only alternate use I've seen for these old iceboxes is as a beer fridge.  I had one of these about 10 years ago that was actually used as a food fridge until the ex "defrosted" it with a knife and all the freon hissed out.  Wish I would have thought to use it as a storage cabinet!

A question though.  I know most places have ordinances against fridges of this type sitting anywhere outside with the doors intact due to the risk of suffocation from kids playing hide and seek in them.  Do you not have those ordinances or is the fridge in a inaccessible area?  Or is it one that doesn't actually latch?

I really shouldn't have shown this to my dh and dd.....I had to yell at them both that we weren't changing anything else!  This is amazing!

Ok, so it's a bit weird looking because my future son in law did the cross pieces and he just could not get it to work out right.  It also looks more lopsided than it should because I just slapped it together on top of my grandbaby's little table.  I'll do some fine tuning with hot glue a little later.

Anyway, it's just a $12 piece of 4x8 hardwood plywood bought from lowes.  We had them cut the squares to our measurements (should have had them do the crosspiece strips too but oh well), a square wood dowel, little bit of craft paint, glued ribbon to two edges and lace to two other edges.  Total cost was about $18.

Oh, and those roses on top are coffee filter roses I made stuck into a styrofoam block.

So tell me, Craftsters, how bad does it look?
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: YARN STORAGE?! Show me what you do! on: August 23, 2008 02:31:26 PM
I have a couple of these http://www.target.com/Natural-Soft-Canvas-Shelf-Organizer/dp/B0006ZP6LC/qid=1219526767/ref=br_1_7/601-3156177-5994552?ie=UTF8&node=343381011&frombrowse=1&pricerange=&index=tgt-mf-mv&field-browse=343381011&rank=pmrank&rh=&page=2 hanging up.  I didn't get mine from Target though, I got them from the Dollar General Store for I think $5  The top strap is wider than those Ikea thingies and since it's not round I can get quite a few skeins in each shelf.
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My daughter's schizophrenic dresser on: August 08, 2008 10:19:31 PM
My step daughters (11 and 14) were here over the summer and kept whining they were bored.  Well there were two dressers out in the shed that the landlord said we could have and since they needed them I thought hey, let em' at it.  I still have to put the drawers in on oldest sd's dresser, but here are before and after pics of the younger's dresser.

Younger sanding hers down, no drawers

Both dressers outside being "prepped"

younger's finished

Older's painted black, without the drawers

The Older has painted her drawers neon pink and neon orange.  She still needs to put another coat on though so that's why the drawers aren't in yet.  What do you think so far?
8  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Another new person here! on: August 08, 2008 09:34:31 PM
Ok, so I think I've lurked this board for 2 years and just got around to registering tonight.  I think it took so long because I see all the beautiful stuff that everyone here makes and think to myself "I'd never be able to do something that cool".  But my daughter is getting married at the end of this month and it's a very DIY wedding and I just so happened to get some of the ideas from here.  I figured I'd better register so I can show YOUR ideas in action lol.

Oh yeah, I knit, crochet, sew, glue myself to the table, the whole nine yards.  Jack of all trades, master of none!
