1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / vinyl decals in the bathroom... on: June 02, 2009 02:53:31 PM
so we just moved into a new apartment that needs some serious work. (but we like fixer-uppers so that's okay!) however, I'm sort of clueless about what to do with the bathroom.

The shower has one of those molded plastic linings (with the built-in shelves). It has become discolored over the years and there is some minor damage, and even after many scrubbings it still looks, well kinda gross. there's no way we're going to get a new one. (our landlord is not very concerned with aesthetics).
I though of buying some large vinyl decals to help distract from the color but will those stay up in the shower? Has anyone ever tried something like this or have other ideas?
I don't want to spend all that money and then have them ruined in a week.

Any and all help is appreciated!
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / octopus silk-screened holiday cards on: December 28, 2008 08:40:57 AM
my boyfriend and i made these cards for the holidays this year. the actual paper part is 3 different layers (one was a shimmery layer on the glass which looked like frost but was really hard to photograph.) the little octopus guy is two layers silk screened on shrink plastic. he can be used as an ornament or whatever you like! we made about 60 of these i think.

in progress........

end result......

different colors.... (blurry)

this was my attempt at photography the shimmery layer...... i think you can kind of see it but maybe that's just because i know its there.


i'm pretty happy with the end result. what do you guys think?

I made this tote bag a few months ago. It's mostly denim. I'm not sure what kind of fabric the orange stuff is. I drew and silk screened the fish design myself, which is on both sides of the bag.

7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / selling stenciled items on: August 04, 2005 07:56:12 AM
i'm doing my first mini craft fair type thing in two weeks. i was trying to think of a few of not-so-time-consuming crafts to make. is it appropriate to sell things that you have stenciled with a stencil that you did not make (found it online or something along those lines)?
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / felt patches on: July 27, 2005 06:45:15 AM
these are nothing special just some felt patches that i've made recently. i'm thinking of making tote bags or something along those lines to sew them on and sell them. would you buy one?

(apparently i forgot to pick the loose stings off the robot and i just noticed right now.)
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / western flair on: July 27, 2005 06:41:30 AM
i made this for my sister. she's really into western stuff and it matches her room. i used pictures from a book about old westerns. (that i found in the garbage, see the post about my actress coffee table). i used modpodge once again in layers and then sealed it.

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / my coffee table of glamorous ladies on: July 27, 2005 06:38:55 AM
i don't have any before pictures of this but you can imagine - it was just your standard brown wood coffee table. i painted it pink and cut the photos of actresses out of a book. (can you believe that my friend and i found about 20 or 30 books in someone's garbage that were all about movies and full of 20's-60's actors and actresses pictures like these!!) I used modpodge to glue them down then i put about 4 or 5 layers on top then sealed it with clear acrylic spray paint. now i can look at these lovely ladies every day from my couch.
