Holy hell, where did you get the cabinet and chair in the 4th picture down? Those would look amazing in my living room, or something like them anyway...

Excellently done, those came across very cleanly. Also, what kind of shirt are you printing them on? the fit is exquisite.
3  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 10 ENTRIES / My new Paisley combat boots on: April 05, 2006 09:27:28 PM
I turned a pair of old black combat boots from 9th grade and a pair of Italian silk goodwill ties ($1 each) into these amazing new paisley boots. I am very excited about them at the moment.

This is my first post on Craftster and probably my first ever legitimate creation of this kind.

The boots are deceptively simple, I just opened the ties up and ironed them, then cut patterns out to fit the boots and slowly superglued it on to each piece. The only tough part was trying to smoothly cover the curved toe, which is more or less impossible.

Also, the superglue seeped through in some spots where I used too much. This is them on my feet:

Hope you like them. If you really really do, say so and perhaps I will post a tutorial, because they're really easy. Seriously, $4 and as many hours.

I love the headphones shirt. I've actually been planning to print one just like it, almost exactly, but I wear those headphones on a regular basis and I'd feel silly with one pair on my head and another on my shirt.

I say make it a lamp. Get it? L-amp? ha.
Seriously though, use the power button on the front of the amp to turn on a lamp which you mount on the top of it. For bonus points, install an alarm clock in it and replace the controls on the amp with similar-looking buttons to control the alarm clock. Serious bonus points if you can use the amp to make the noise for the alarm clock.
6  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: A dead 17 inch flat screen LCD moniter on: March 29, 2006 11:06:58 AM
Take out all of the actual junk for the screen but leave the light and figure out a way to make the light turn on. now find a bunch of color film negatives, enough to cover the screen. Slides would work too, especially wierdly exposed ones. glue them across a sheet of plexiglass and put the plexiglass in the monitor... a backlit film display, not functional for actual film but it would sure look cool.
Alternatively, get a picture you like printed on a transparency (like, for overhead projectors) and it will look awesome backlit.

That is really really excellent, I'm planning on doing something like that for my room in my new apartment. Pardon the ignorance, but did you just paint a rectangle of pink and then paint the flower directly over it? If so, good detail work. Also, have you considered running the lamp cord through the wall?
As a side note, my friend has the same bed...

Jigsaw is almost definitely the way to go with these, trace them out on the sign a little larger than you actually want to cut them (not much, a mm or 2 at most) because you will need to grind down the edges. If you don't have a grinder, there are dremel attachments that can do the trick but dremels aren't really high-power tools so it will take you some time, even with the right bit. A dremel will probably work best on the detailed areas like the inside of that "2." If you don't have a jigsaw, prepare to tire your arm out with a hacksaw because that will be a lot of work. I suppose you could do the whole thing with a dremel cutting bit but it will take forever and you'll wear down your bit and your dremel. Good luck though, those look awesome. I love the look of reclaimed road signs.
