1  Star Wars bedroom -Image large in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Nuno930 on: March 05, 2011 12:34:59 PM
My son turned 4 so he got a big boy room for his present from us!  He has a TINY room, so we decided to take the closet out and use it as part of his bed.  My dad put shelves in to the top for storage.  Eventually, they will have the cloth bins to organize toys and clothes.... But those bad boys are $7 a piece!  Anywho that is what the closet was built to hold.  Each shelf will hold 2.  

Lego Darth Vader  Grin

Before pictures: (thats my daddy working away!!)

Closet turned bed:
R2-D2 Body Pillow... It was an infant costume I found at the Goodwill (sewing machine broke mid-pillow so it isn't finished)

One side of the bed/closet

Other side:

Chain Pull, I love it <3  It was one of the Galactic Heros that is missing his saber.  The chain pull fits perfectally!

2  2 hour, $50 makeover in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Nuno930 on: March 05, 2011 10:50:38 AM
I am in the process of adoption soooooo I am on a SUPER tight budget.  But, that said, I needed to whip out a few projects around the house.  So for the cost of paint, and a few Target clearance items I have a hallway now.  I am not totally finished... but it is presentable

3  What can i do with plexiglass model boxes? in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by Nuno930 on: January 08, 2011 07:30:29 PM
I have a bunch from work.  I am not sure what I can do with them... but I know where is potential in there somewhere!!! They are lit and about 2x2x2 ft.  They don't have to keep the contents... my children may steal them anyway  Roll Eyes 

(sorry for the mess... it is my craft room so well, well you know)

4  Grandparents presents for $10! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Nuno930 on: December 27, 2010 08:10:13 PM
I made this for all the grandparents this Chrismas for about $10.  (well in theory, I messed up a few times so I had to start over).  Pretty easy, but they loved them!  I like them so much I think I am going to make me some (only, in orange not white!).

5  1875 Hat in Costumes: Completed Projects by Nuno930 on: December 20, 2010 07:26:51 AM
I never know where to post hats... So here seems fitting.  I work in a 1875 era Living History museum in a millinery.  This is for the broomshop (factory) gal, so it has to be plain/ dark colors.  I opted for the elastic strap vs. relying on a hat pin.

6  My first hat! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Nuno930 on: July 21, 2010 05:21:45 PM
I wasn't 100% sure where this belongs so here it landed...

I work as a Milliner in a living history museum that portrays 1875.  This is the first hat I have made!!!... annnd technically it is a bonnet.

7  My first project!! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Nuno930 on: December 08, 2008 01:17:50 PM
I've done a few basic sewing projects before but I count this as my first!!  Simplicity 5827  My first pattern, first sleeves, zipper, fitted garment, so on so forth.  The neck is really wonky as i didn't understand the directions at all, but I winged it and it at least resembles a neckline... from a distance anywho.  I am also in the process of making a matching one for her American Girl doll (knock off) which both are her Christmas present so I can't show that picture! Ok sorry for TMI here is the dress:

9  Frecycle ottoman fug - to...well something better at least in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Nuno930 on: January 08, 2008 12:24:57 PM
My first attempt at reupholstering anything so well it looks like a first attempt.  But I'd take that over what it WAS.

What I started with:

Midway though rippin' that baby apart:

End results: (please ignore ugly matching chair I got with the ottoman, I have plans for that baby!... but man is it comfortable!!!Oh and the obvious need for a vacuum  Shocked )

I plan to replace the legs with something a bit nicer but for the moment I painted them to match (and I am somewhat impressed seeing as how I can't paint a sick person correctly) plus bonus shot of my dogs head Roll Eyes

10  Taggie blanket (does that go here?) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Nuno930 on: December 09, 2007 07:27:36 PM
It is simple but I just learned how to sew (specifically for this Christmas to handmake my kids' presents) so I made my baby a taggie style blanket.  Pardon the pictures and they are not the BEST show off ones (husband took it) but its what I have and I want to brag  Grin Oh and there are more tags then it looks like in the picture... they just all seem to blend.
