nice! how did you do the dowels so that you could add new or subtract empty spools?

I screwed hooks the wood blocks on each end so the dowel sits on the hooks. 

I'm a fan of tension rods, too, and that's a great idea!  I used one for the curtains I made for a shelving unit so I didn't have to look at my stuff all the time.  I'm a big fan of hiding stuff!   

Post your dresser when you repurpose it!  I love to see painted cabinets and dressers!

You are welcome! Smiley

I'm going add this to above it for more storage solutions and storing project sheets and ideas!

The wood is the same base color and the coffee cans match one of the drawers.  It's just a mater of screwing the cans to the wood and then I used eye hooks to hang it on nails in the wall, which are in the studs, of course!

$165 for polka dot shoes? maybe if you painted the Mona Lisa on them! Good luck!

I just sold a pair for $175, so clearly there's a market!

Awesome!  My friend does this for herself and friends and I've told here she should sell them!

4  Re:Mood lighting in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by udandi on: February 05, 2004 06:35:29 AM
i was thinking the same thing, more or less, but instead using like a mason jar or some sort of colored glass jar. just a thought. beer bottles... u may have something there....

I did one with mardi gras beads for my bathroom and though I have a feeling a poster like Diamond would say it looks unappealing in daylight hours, to each her own, I like the way both my CD and jar lights look!  

though it looks a little un-appealing in day light hours (inset).

5  Typical banner/button size? in Crafty Business Discussion by udandi on: January 18, 2004 10:17:01 AM
on the topic of buttons for your site, what's the standard size or is there a standard size?

I made this one and it's 120x74 and I have no clue why I made it that size  Roll Eyes haha!

anyway, I'd like to rework it so people can use them to link to my site, if they want.  Your input is greatly appreciated!

I agree with whatever you do it's the prep work that you can't skimp, but I like the idea of the wax and paint!  

I've been debating getting a roll of corkboard and adding it the sides of my cabinet.   Or using that magnetic paint (but I hear you need lots of coats for it to work) and then repainting it another color.  So far all I've added is a curtain to so you can't see all my stuff.

They sell faster than you can make them!!

or maybe she's just looking to make something for herself, rather than sell it??!!

yami, I think it's awesome!  I used a mayo jar and mardi gras beads to create a night light in my bathroom

I use the 50% off coupon at michaels (that you only get every once in a while) to buy the bulk 3/4" dyna-mite button magnets.

I'm partial to the large glass pebbles too (which I get at Garden Ridge).

I'm not sure it is any cheaper than buying a handle from UMX, but I had beads, wire and a drill so I made my own.

10  Re: Ribbon Belts - Help? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by udandi on: August 27, 2003 05:55:17 PM
As I children of the 80s my sister and I had those belts so a few years back I made some with 1" webbing and 1/2" cherry print grossgrain ribbon. But I would think interfacing would work if you were just using ribbon.
I got the d-rings in the notions section of Joanns or Hancocks.

Good luck and I hope you post a picture of your completed project!
