21  SWOOPY chair in CHALLENGE 28 ENTRIES by CraftyCarrie on: June 04, 2008 03:54:33 PM
I have no before pictures, but it was $5.00 at a yard sale.  The old owner said the chair had been hanging around their house for decades.  It was upholstered in brown shag carpeting.  You could tell that it was home to the hairy, smelly dog for quite some time.  It was covered in dog hair and grime.  Hubby didn't want it, but I did!

Here's the cleaned up version.  We bought a velour blanket to reupholster it with.  I also tried button-covering and tufting for the first time .  It went well.

I made some more for a swap. These are the small wooden letters.  I think they were only 99 cents each at Micheal's.

23  Electric Sex Gleaming in the Window in CHALLENGE 27 ENTRIES by CraftyCarrie on: May 01, 2008 03:06:48 PM
This lamp was inspired by the leg lamp in the movie A Christmas Story. I rescued the plastic leg from my parent's garage sale.  Once I saw it I knew what I had to do.  I drilled a hole in the bottom to thread the lamp kit through. I dresses it in a sexy fishnet stocking. I attached it to a wood base.  The shade was white, so I painted it and hot glued the black fringe on the bottom. My husband found a FRAGILE sign and we stuck it on. "Hmm...It must be Italian."  I made this lamp about 6 years ago.  It stays in our living room year round. 

We are still searching for the right shoe.

24  Funky Curtains - Dollar Store in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by CraftyCarrie on: April 21, 2008 11:07:21 PM
I came across some cool kitchen towels at the Dollar Tree last week.  I added them to my fabric stash and waited patiently for some inspiration. 

I bought the Roman shades at The Christmas Tree Shop for $10 each. I hung them, but I felt that they needed a little something on top.  Then I remembered those towels. I went back to the Dollar Tree and bought the rest. 

I turned them in to a cool valance. I sewed 2 towels together.  Added the ribbon down the center to hide the seam.  I backed them with some fabric from an old tablecloth.  I'm lovin' my new curtains!  I have two towels left.  I might make some pillows.  Not bad for $10 in towels.

I embellished 2 onesies for my little man today.  I used fabric scraps for the appliques.  I think he looks dapper.

27  Dog and Bunny Rabbit - Made From Gloves in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by CraftyCarrie on: March 22, 2008 09:20:46 PM
I saw these on Martha Stewart a few weeks ago.  
They are from a book called SOCK and GLOVE.
I made these two guys from gloves.  The black dog is made from those super cheap stretchy knit gloves and the grey rabbit is made from Angora knit gloves.  How appropriate.

Enjoy them.  They were fun to make.

Check out the print or video tutorial on Martha Stewart's website. http://www.marthastewart.com/article/glove-animals?lnc=bf89cf380e1dd010VgnVCM1000005b09a00aRCRD&rsc=comments_crafts&comments_page=1&rsc=comments_more#conversation-container

Thanks for the tutorial.  I think I'll make a bunch of these with my 4th grade class.  They can make a mobile to give to mom for mother's day.  Thanks for the great idea!

I made this out of a magazine page.

29  Organized Medicine Cabinet in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by CraftyCarrie on: February 27, 2008 08:29:40 PM
OK.  So I'm a bit anal ... obsessive compulsive ... neat freak ... etc.  My medicine cabinet was a mess. Everytime I tried to get something, tons of other stuff would fall out onto the floor.  I decided to solve this problem with some plastic canvas and yarn.  Enjoy!

You did a FABULOUS job on the room, and on the baby Wink Both are adorable!

I really liked how your wallpaper border came out - was it difficult? My husband I were talking about doing something similar for my daughter's room.

I got the wallpaper sample books at the local wallpaper store.  They were discontinued designs, so I got them for free.  I invested $15 in a circle cutter.  You can get one at the craft store or Amazon.com.  Well worth it! Then I just used wallpaper paste to randomly stick them on the wall.  It was really quite simple.  You can read more about the faux finished walls and wallpaper circles here.

Wow, great job! Cool furniture, very mid century modern. Where did you find it?
I love the letters, them came out great!

The furniture came from my parent's house.  I'm guessing it's from the 60's.  It was dark brown wood.  My husband sanded and painted it all.

Aww thats So cute!! I love the color scheme. You got a good one with your husband XD - making all the important stuff. haha. I adore that boarder by the way. how long did it takeyou to do the whole room?

oh and ADORABLE little baby

Hmmm... I think if I figured this out, I'd faint.   Tongue 

I love your room and your baby.  what really caught my eye was the radiator cover under the window.  I want to get one made like that for my house.  Is the grill metal or wood and did you get it made or did it come with the house?

little earthling

The radiator cover was here when we moved in.  The entire thing is made of wood.  We painted it to match the other woodwork and furniture in the room.

THANKS TO ALL OF YOU for the kind words about the room and the little man.
