1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Bleached Crop Top on: July 05, 2011 11:37:09 AM
Cute! I love floyd and I love crop tops! Here is a tip for you. When I was playing with bleach I would notice that over time the bleach would wear holes into my clothes, even though they had been washed many many times. The bleach still eats it up. So I read that after bleaching douse your project with hydrogen peroxide to stop the bleach. I did it on a pair of jeans and it seemed to work Smiley

Thanks for the tip!!

Thanks! The bleaching was so fun, I ended up cutting the bottom excess into strips and bleaching them too for headbands!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Fixed up Sun Lounger on: June 30, 2011 09:42:54 AM
My dad gave me an old sun lounger that he had lying around and I decided to fix it up and make it new again!


It had all kind of gouges, no pad, and desperately needed a paint job.


First I took it apart. Then I sanded it down so it was smooth, glued parts together that were wiggling around or broken. After that I put it back together and painted it with some discounted outdoor paint I found at Home Depot for $5. Then I got a pad at Big Lots and it was ready to go!

I've been wanting a crop top but I wasn't able to find any that I liked in the stores so I decided to make my own out of an oversized tshirt that I've been holding onto.

I think it turned out really cute.

Here's the before pic

I also made up a tutorial if anyone's interested


Let me know what you think!

I just use the wood that comes to me! Even yew wood is good to use for food purposes despite it's berries being very poisonous, so it never occurred to me other wood might be a problem, I'd better go check it out I think!

The spreader is made of a leylandii branch (which is a bit sticky just under the bark, but ok if you carry on down from there)
The pickle fork is made of horse chestnut.

Once in a blue moon I oil all my wooden spoons etc, so I suspect I'll do that with these too, but I just use olive oil, nothing special. I wash 'em when I've used 'em (in the sink, I don't own a dishwasher) and the flavour doesn't hang around and natural wood has a slight antibacterial property anyway.

Thanks so much for the reply! I love wooden utensils, but they can be expensive. I might have to try this out soon!!

This is so cute! Is there a certain type of wood you're using, or do you think any wood would be okay for something like this?
Also, are you putting any wax or other protector on it so it won't soak up the pickle/olive juice?
