You mention that you have lots of beads to swap. What if you treated the woven section of the headboard as a giant canvas for beading?
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Help! Mermaid party for 1yr old! on: May 06, 2009 12:03:02 PM
Buy one of those clear plastic shower curtains - shower liners, I think they're called. Less than $10 at Target. Draw a mermaid and sea scene on it with permanent marker or puffy fabric paints.

Now you can hang it up as a decoration...use it to play Pin the Bow on the Mermaid...or even float it on the pool. Then take it home and use as a shower curtain.

Not sure about favor ideas...pocket mirrors or combs? (You know mermaids and their hair.) But you could have all the favors in a treasure chest.

Be sure to tuck in some goldfish crackers among the snacks.

We have the TV on top of an old dresser, and use the drawers for storage.

I've also seen suggestions to put the TV on a coffee table, slide milk crates underneath for storage, and cover with a cloth.

Looks great - and thanks for the info on wet paper sanding. The reminder about ultra-thin coats is good, too.

Excellent - and so cool that you made your kids partners in the project.

Nice work. Are the frames home-built?

Of course, those big blank spaces just seem to be begging for detail... Cheesy

Love it!

Oh, and can we please do pantyhose craft, too?

How about just some satiny ivory ribbon? Sew metal circles to each end, or attach curtain hanger clips.

Or find a fabric that complements the curtains and your to-be-green walls...maybe something in green, or a pale green with black print. Tiebacks are easy to make; here's just one site with instructions:

Men's ties can also make good tiebacks, though I'm not sure this fits your decor.

Good luck!

Oh, that's lovely! I especially like the way the cat balances out the bird.

Nice work!

What kind of paint did you use? And did you seal it?
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Painting a Wall Mural - Paint choice? on: March 29, 2009 02:09:31 PM
I've painted with acrylics and then sealed with the medium used in faux finishes - I used "Illusions," from Sherwin-Williams.

I've also painted kitchen chairs, using acrylic and latex, and sealed with MinWax Polycrilic, a water-based polyurethane sealer - bet that would also be good on a high-traffic wall.

Sounds like a fun project!
