1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Bathroom Words? on: April 28, 2008 06:51:50 AM
i was going to put "cleanliness is next to godliness"  in my loo, but considering i'm a total slob, it would be kind of hypocritical LOL. Wink

I have to say, i love both main colors (minus the border of course).

But hte "after" set, with everything tied together looks PHENOMENAL.
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Backsplash: Clear Acrylic, Dry Erase or Chalkboard? Which is more useful? on: April 28, 2008 06:25:31 AM
the title pretty much says it all; I need to redo my backsplash because i'm installing new cabinets and  light fixture will be moved. I want something easy to put in (and take out if i want to change it), inexpensive, easy to care for, and stylish. (Right now the backsplash is a sheet of stainless steel and it looks horrid IMO)

My ideas:

1) Clear acrylic board: i saw it at the Bricolage store (that is the Euro name for home depot type stores). behind it there will be paint matching the rest of the room, or i can add fabric or posters or something...
My concern is that it might get too hot and melt... any experiences? (i think this would also function as a dry erase board, however i'm not 100% sure about that)

2) Chalkboard (paint): perhaps magnetic (would that be more useful?) Easy to clean, can write if i need to (although chalk around food... doesn't seem like the best idea...)

3) Dry Erase board(s): So i can scribble notes, recipes, etc on it. I was thinking to get a bunch of cheap ones and "tiling" them, or if i can find it a dry erase board roll. I am also worried about the head resistance with this...

anyone have any experiences, suggestions or ideas?

This may be in the wrong forum... could a mod please move it if it is (apologies)

Those are fantastic!
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: Book Rest, Reading Pillow - Anyone seen a tut for this? on: April 28, 2008 06:13:51 AM
It looks really simple to make... sew a pyramid but leave a lot of overhang to the bottom, and create the "ravioli effect" from that

hope this explains what i'm thinking
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / can I use dry erase markers on stainless steel? on: October 18, 2007 06:34:15 AM
i tried googling it but had no luck. I want to know if i can use a SS board that is being used as a backsplash as a dry erase board for my grocery list et al...

any one know the answer to this?
i tried in an inconspicuous spot, and it seemed to be OK, but I'm afraid it might stain in the long run

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / VagaBond Adhesive... has anyone heard of this/know where to get it? on: October 02, 2007 10:29:23 AM
I got a promotional sticker that had Vagabond as its adhesive... its somewhat similar to the 3m Command stuff, except its clear, thinner and once the stickiness goes away, you supposedly just moisten it and it becomes adhesive again.

problem: there is no official website! all i was able to find was places that make your stickers with it, but i don't want custom stickers, i want rolls of it to use for my apt!

any suggestions?
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Need Recs for EUROPEAN/Italian Vendor of Contact Paper on: October 02, 2007 10:25:42 AM
Subject pretty much says it all.

for the contact paper (to cover my kitchen cabinets) I'm looking for either dry erase board white or White woodgrain at least 55cm wide.

Google has been of little help to me, so i turn to you crafster

How about some decals instead?


i was just about to post about wall decals.

there are so many companies that make these now a days, not just blik, all you need is to google what you are looking for. Blik, wall pringt and stickyups all make the bamboo shape you are looking for.

Currently apartment therapy is having a giveaway contest you might want to enter (the BLICK bamboo decals are one of hte prizes).

(edited to clarify the last sentence)
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: HELP!! Living room too small on: September 12, 2007 07:44:53 AM
to me, a small room calls for FEW, but large/statement pieces that are versatile, and using space saving options if/when you can. IMO your floor plan looks like it has too much stuff.

ie a great sofa bed doubles as a guest room, storage ottomans, hanging a flat screen TV or projector and screen on the wall... also, declutter things that you don't use. I had heaps of stuff in my apartment i never touched, and once i ridded them from my place, not only did the space look better, but it also felt lighter (and my mind felt clearer too).
