heres goes AGAIN i messed up a couple times and lost everything i'de put together for the post....
so i had this ugly bedstand and i decided to button it up...
So I started with sanding it and removing the legs and handle on the drawer. Then I  painted it pink. Next I attached all the buttons to the top.. Then I painted and put glitter buttons on the bedstand. Next I glued a button to the handle for the drawer then I sealed the top of the buttons with glow in the dark star glaze. Then I sealed everything with a clear glossy spray paint then I screamed a few times as I tried to put the pictures on the computerfinally attached some and here we go here they are.sorry I meant to explain better..hope this isnt late my time says 11:38 on the 5th its not midnight quite yet

Teaser pic for main pic

Comments much appreciated and I hope I win but if not im just glad I finally got it finished and posted

6  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / no more cold feet socks just werent workin on: March 11, 2008 02:52:55 PM
ok so my rooms in our finished basement well i have a fireplace. but my dad wont let me use it and so it gets cold down here sometimes when we dont have the heaters on. So me finally getting annoyed by my feet getting COLD i swear its so annoying being on the computer or watching tv or whatever im doing and my feet wanting to fall off haha not literally. so i decided to change that so i got the idea to make something like those rice or corn heating things i have a square and a long rectangle for like my back or neck. so i thought why dont i just make like a sock type thing with rice on the top so i made these. despite that there really ugly but my feet dont care they love them. i put a sock on my foot and then the rice sock on after that and then another sock that are really big that my friend gave to me for christamas (winnie the pooh YAY, lol) sry no tutorial... ok heres my pics
 the top of the rice sock thingy hehe (out of stretchy material)

 the bottom of the rice sock  (regular cotton material or whatever not stretchy)

 heres a pic of me wearing it over a regular sock it can get alittle to warm so i wear a sock so it doesnt over heat my foot lol

 after i put the rice sock over the other sock i put another sock over that so i dont get the rice sock dirty...
comments are very appreciated on my very strange creation

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / COOL turtle neck shirt into a awesome hoodie. with a sorta explained tut on: January 21, 2008 07:44:35 PM
Soo i wanted to make a hoodie but i dont have alot of experience making clothes so i made a hoodie out of two turtle neck shirts, i added a hood, pockets, and zipper, to begin i cut off the huge turtle neck off, then the way i made it was i measured a pocket of a regular no zipper hoodie and cut that size from the second hoodie and ironed it into shape, pinned it onto the other turtle neck  (about and in and a half up from the bottom), and sewed. next i put my rotary cutter board inbetween it and set it flat, got the measuring tape and handy dandy yard stick and found the center and held the yard stick still and cut it straight up the center. next i folded the edges of the cut center over once and ironed it (both sides) then i pinned a 22" zipper in. sewed that in next i got another jacket and used the hood to make a hood, sewed the curve. then sewed the front edge of the hood (folded twice), then i attached the hood to the top edge. AND WALA, and for an extra touch so u cant see the retarted sewing on the pocket (stretchy material. ugh) set up a sheet that u dont mind having paint splatter on, get paint (i used those little things that u have leftovers off with paint by number pictures) added water to them, mixed it up with a tooth pick, got the paint brush and splattered paint all over (i tap the paint brush against my finger so i dont get paint in my hair and everywhere), now. the pics...

On me
