1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help for a leather couch? on: March 04, 2012 01:20:27 PM
why not go with the simplest route? Use black faux leather. If they are removable you can probably take them to a shoemaker who can just stitch the new fabric on top. another fix could be finding used leather coats in the thrift stores CHEAP... and using them. I have upholstered my dining chair seats using old leather coats, sems and all, I just try to arrange the seams so they are symmetrical.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: What to do with the world's most hideous cabinets? on: March 04, 2012 01:03:20 PM
I think the cabinets are GREAT...I would use some red and white checked curtains and dishtowels with colorful prints to liven things up. If yo really wanted to cover the cabinets you might try painting cardboard cut to the exact size of the doors and then using a light glue that is removable to mount them. I think the look of old and distressed is great tho.

if you are removing the tub, why not turn the whole area where the tub is now into a shower for two? it won't matter if the tile is different. you can try for something that will have all three colors in it. You can make or buy an over the toilet unit for storage. you can roll your towels rather than fold and store them there. buy a big medicine cabinet, and with a vanity under the sink and those items you should have enough storage for two. When there is not a lot of space, think of using the unused space above for shelves.

you can use them for wainscoting too. You can screw those 1X4's to the wall top and bottom, with a spacer behind them equal to the thickness of the pallet boards, make the 1X4's about two pallet boards short of the end of the wall on one end . Be sure the spacers allow at least one inch of the 1X4's to extend past the spacers to make a pocket, then slip the pallet boards in from the open end.. You need only screw the last two boards in to hold them all. Now finish off with a short piece of 1X4 top and bottom at the area you used to slip the boards in, then cap the whole thing with a 1X3 laid flat OR a piece of door molding. You can get fancy with this technique. If you have a table saw, you can make those edges perfect and they look great sanded and stained or just coated with some linseed oil. Doesn't take long to sand them with an electric sander BEFORE you put them up, impossible to do after. plan ahead. Oh, and if you have a table saw, to can even use those 2X4 ends as the cap.
