It would be much more helpful to know what you're willing/able/can afford to change in the room.

That shade of pink would be lovely with some carefully selected shades of light and dark brown, or even a chocolate brown with some robin's-egg accents.

Another really great starting point (aside from the paint, I mean) would be to theme your room around those records from your grandfather.

If nothing else, you can always donate them to a preschool or daycare. I taught Head Start for five years and we always needed magazines for the open art area and for other projects.

That's absolutely adorable.

The squish factor definitely adds some cuteness, too.

Is it too late to join in?

I'm currently working on two modified Circles to Squares blankets for a friend who is having boy/girl twins this fall, and could definitely use the support... Not to mention gaining inspiration for later projects while I'm here!

The pattern is free on LionBrand.com, and the yarn is Vanna's Choice in Kelly Green, and Vanna's Choice Baby in Little Boy Blue, Berrylicious, and Duckie.

Now... Back to hooking.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Refinishing Wal-Mart furniture? on: June 06, 2008 07:38:00 AM
So here's the situation.

I have two dressers that are a similar style (that happen to not be my style at all). They kind of match, but look horrible with the rest of our things. I'd like to sand them down, prime them, paint them either the same color or similar colors, and get matching drawer pulls.

However nice that might sound... How do you go about this with crappy wal-mart funiture? It's particle board, but covered in... laminate? or a vinyl veneer? Something that looks like it's going to be nightmarish to refinish.

Any ideas?

That's absolutely genius.

We have a grill left here by the previous owners, but it is one of the super-cheap ones that wouldn't work as a potting bench... But I'm considering turning it into a planter.

What I'd do, if I was afraid to put it on the wall, is have a thin board cut down to the size of the frame you're using.
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help needed for strengthing a lampshade made of buttons on: May 03, 2008 06:32:30 AM
I'm wondering if there is some kind of super-fine mesh you could glue strips of on the inside of the shade... without making an odd pattern of light shining through. That would reinforce the buttons.... But I don't know about transparency. Or perhaps if you lined it with a really sheer fabric? Just for support, should anything happen?

That's fantastic.

Next weekend I'm taking a bag of quikcrete to my mother's house and we're having a Mother's Day stepping-stone marathon.

This way, DH doesn't have to look at me like I'm crazy when he stumbles on the boxes of broken glass I've been hoarding.
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Home built in 1920's Help with kitchen please! on: April 27, 2008 06:29:23 AM
We're in the process of buying a house built in 1920.

I LOVE the cabinets (original to the house), and we are going to leave them white (but we're going to take them down, strip, sand, and repaint). The current owner painted nearly everything else seafoam green (ack!).

I'm thinking about a robin's-egg blue, or maybe a soft, woodsy shade of green.

Of course, we won't really know until we start moving in (May 12th).

Post pictures when you decide! I'll be back for info and advice, as well.
