1  Victorian/Vintage Coasters in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by jjm on: January 27, 2006 04:40:53 PM
Okay....I decided to post these here.  I absolutely love them!  Made them a while ago and they look terrific in my bedroom.  I use a couple of them as actual coasters on my nightstands and a couple of them I have displayed on my shelfs with other items.

Whatdaya think?

2  Okay...My Craft Cabinet in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by jjm on: October 21, 2005 07:30:58 PM
Now I know this cabinet/wardrobe doesn't look like it can be salvaged, but bear with me.
It was given to me by a friend that was going to put it in the trash since it had
been sitting outside in her carport for a while (covered) and the elements had
done some damage, but it still had good "bones".

It took me a while, but eventually it ended up looking like this and holds
all/most of my craft supplies (paints, stencils, stamps, glues, etc.).  I installed
shelves on the side that doesn't have the drawers so that created even
more storage space.

I decoupaged two posters onto the drawers.

I did have to cut out some new doors from plywood (but at least I already
had a pattern).  I used an old piece of paneling I had for the back, some
decorative painting, and voila!

My friend can't believe that this is the same cabinet she gave me!!

3  Desk/Hutch--Cost?!!! $15 in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by jjm on: October 12, 2005 09:17:19 AM
This is just a sample of my passion....picking up "throw-aways" and re-purposing
them into something nice and usable!

Started out with this....



Total costs....$15 (for the top hutch at Salvation Army).  It was just my
luck that the top fit the desk perfectly!  Add a little black paint so that
it matched the desk, and viola!!!
