I made something similar with curling ribbon, but I like your version better. I think I'll remake it with that softer ribbon (not sure what the term is) and add the foam star or heart on the top. Thanks for the idea!

So we are basically redecorating every room in this house (well, most of the rooms were never decorated, but you know what I mean). The first thing we fixed up was the entrance way. The walls had been destroyed by the dog that used to live here. Some of the after pictures are missing door trim; we had to replace all the trim. After that, I repainted the dining room. The red was too dark for my liking.

I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Thanks for looking!

That's really neat. How exactly did you get the image onto the chair? Did you use paint?
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Monopoly Board Game Clock!! Made from old clock parts on: November 08, 2010 01:41:35 PM
So this is a personal project that Ive been working on for the past couple of weeks, and now it is finally complete. It is a monopoly game board that  functions as a clock when hung on the wall. When removed from the wall, it sits evenly on the table and can be played like any normal board game.

The clock parts were removed from an old ugly clock that we had and no longer wanted to use. The board game has been sitting in the closet for a year now, completely unused. I was in the mood to create something but due to my tight budget, I was limited to using materials that I already owned. Hence, the monopoly clock was born.

The middle is painted white and the clock face has been altered with numbers and dollar sign hand-drawn onto paper and glued onto the original metal plating for visual appeal. The playing pieces, houses and hotels are stored inside the clear box, which originally held dollar-store thumb tacks. The box is attached to the board with magnets and is therefore removable.

The playing cards and properties are held on with elastics that were inserted through holes drilled in the game board. The ends of the elastics are strung through buttons on the backside of the game board, which hold the elastics in place. The platform was made by hot-glue-gunning empty DVD cases onto the corners, which help the board to sit evenly on the table. The DVD cases double as storage units, as they can be opened and closed. They hold all the monopoly money.

Originally, I was planning to build a compartment box on the back of the game board, using wood pieces so I could just open up the door and easily store all the game pieces there. I couldn't find the pieces that I was looking for and I don't have any power tools, so I had to figure out something else. Overall it turned out well enough that I'm happy with it. We've gotten compliments already from friends that have come over to our place.

I hope you all like it. Thanks for reading!

I just ordered that book through amazon and I can't wait for it to come in. I'd never even heard of container gardening until I read this post. All your plants look so great! I finally have a decent balcony this year that gets a ton of sunlight. I'll definately be trying this earthbox idea when spring gets here, and i'll be using your photos as a reference if you don't mind. haha.
