11  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: I've got a problem that i hope to solve by the 17th on: October 14, 2009 12:27:10 PM
What about that layer they use on wedding cakes?  .... rushed, trying to sneak a reply before the boss walks in ... not thinking clearly ... but you guys know what I mean .... (what IS that stuff called!!!)
12  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help, no closets!!!! on: September 02, 2009 01:11:29 PM
That was going to be my suggestion.  Smiley
I have 2 bookshelves in my house working as closets.  (they aren't as deep as armoirs, either). One is in my craft room, with baskets and wooden handles screwed into the front.  I keep scouting out baskets that 'fit perfectly' instead of spending a mint.  My kids mittens are at the back door in canvas 'boxes' on another bookshelf.  Easy to get at, and easy to hide.

Another idea might be high shelving.  Use baskets or something to hide the clutter look - unify it, but stash stuff UP whenever you can.  Overhead space is often all that you have in apts - and only 'over' dressers, beds, desks etc.

What about artists frames?  I think you can get them in odd sizes, so if it's a narrow closet, get one as wide as you need, and one as long as you need .... you'd have to 'hinge' it on to the cabinet, but put fabric on the inside.

Fabric in picture frames works, too.  I have some in large heavy wooden frames I picked up for a buck or less at dollar stores.  EXTREMEly large artwork?  Take a picture, blow it up to 4 feet by 5 feet.  Or, fabric.  Get a metallic fabric, use upholstery tacks or a piece of dowling and nail it to the top and bottom of the wall.  Smiley

17  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Re: Black painted walls.... yes black!! on: June 01, 2009 09:31:31 AM
I love this!  MY Bedroom is black too - I did it about 4 years ago and have NEVER regretted it.  Mine is Matte, though - with textured wallpaper on one wall that was in really bad shape, so you can see the very faint shadows of the emblem. 
GREAT job - this is stunning. Dramatic. Smiley

This is beautiful!  I'm kicking myself for buying 2 new feeders now .... ugly, cheap, boring feeders. 
19  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Re: Mailbox into garden tool storage on: May 27, 2009 10:48:47 AM
Great Idea!!!  I was just thinking yesterday that I hate trudging across the entire property every time I forget to grab the right tool for the yard.  Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to copy it unless I make 3 and buy duplicate sets of tools.  My garden is TOO spread out.  I think I'll have to make/buy/create a carry-all type of tool holder.

I really like this though ... maybe someday, in a smaller lot ..... ?  Smiley

Oh - I've done this!  I admire your tenacity.  I did about 5 cans and painted them navy blue - I hurt so many fingers that I could never dare to do it again.  Hammering in a cylinder?  Especially one frosty with ice?  RISKY!
Great job!
