1  Freecycle Trunk...to funkify or restore? in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by bubbanizzlemomma on: November 15, 2007 02:32:38 PM
I got this trunk from a Freecycle member last summer, and it's been out in the garage ever since.  The wood is in fabulous shape, however, some of the tin is so rusty that it's a bit crumbly.
It can be restored to it's once beautiful state, but that will take way more money than I can afford right now... about $500-600 dollars.
I'm a funky, eclectic girl, so I'm thinking about funkifying the trunk.  My problem lies in what I should do to it. 
Decoupauge?  Paint?  Fabric?
Help me funkify my trunk so the hubby doesn't toss it out!

And the oh so rusty pics LOL:

2  From poo brown to lilac panne-Fabric covered walls WIP w/pics in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by bubbanizzlemomma on: August 26, 2007 03:36:45 PM
My stepdaughter, Liv, has been living with the most hideous walls ever for the past 3 years.  They are striped: poo brown, dark blue, and white.  With a 2 year old monkeyboy and a 4 year old, I can't paint the walls.  We discussed wallpaper, but I'm currently in the process of stripping old wallpaper off of about 80% of the walls.
We decided to cover her walls in lilac panne velvet.   So far we've gotten 1 wall covered...took all day with trials and errors.  We're going to hide the seams with some grosgrain ribbon and decorative tacks.  I know this is the completed projects section, but we feel pretty accomplished having covered a whole wall.



The corner where icky meets princessy:

This is my walk in closet.  It's huge, and an equally huge mess.  I'd like to take over the corner underneath the fuse box for a sewing area since it has good light and there's a plug right there for me.

I'm also trying to find a place to hang the japanese silk kimono that is currently in a white trashbag on the top shelf of the closet.  It's incredibly heavy with cranes sewn on....I'll pull it down once I empty the closet and de-bagify it and share pics.  I'm also planning to hang the rifle rack you can see in the corner of the first pic...it'll go somewhere in the closet above kiddle reach.
