Oh my...We're doing the same thing with Sailor Jerry art!

Well I'm using Delta paints. They are diswasher, oven and microwave-safe. I hope that helps.

Would anyone know how to thin out fabric?

I found this awesome fabric but I want it sheer.

Am I S.O.L?

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Bathroom glass on: April 17, 2006 02:00:31 PM
Okay...My questions are:

I have a really cheap set of bathroom stuff (toothpaste holder, soap holder...etc) and I want to paint it. What would be a good paint that I could use that can take the abuses of shower steam, water, Lysol without getting cracked or pasty?

Is there a washable paint I could use for mirrors as well?

Is it possible to paint in a no-slip mat in the bath tub? It would obviously have to be waterproof and not slippery.

My bathroom is slowly turning into a Vegas-themed room and I was thinking about taking the black toothpaste holder and painting black circles on it like dice.

And would anyone know where to find the following items or ideas on how to make them:

Dice or Vegasy rug
Vegas wall frames (his mom is taking pics of some Vegas casinos for us when she goes)

Or any ideas on what ideas you might have would muchly be appreciated.

Well....For some Ale-8 art...

An Ale 8 pinwheel.
An Ale 8 birdhouse (I have no idea how to drill glass)
An incense burner. 

For an incense burner, you'd have to drill a hole on the bottom of the bottle and a few on the sides. Light the incense (so it's burning, not inflamed) and drop it in it.

You could make a light out of it but that would be complicated.

Anymore ideas, just ask.

Box of mac and cheese.
57 steak sauce.

When you add the cheese, put 57 steak sauce and pepperoni and microwave it for 2 minutes.

Poor man's casserole.

Combine what you have. 

(I've been known for pop tarts, cheese crackers, barbeque sauce.....) Everyone knows not to complain even if it is gross.

Well I was thinking on making a "canopy" style bed by hanging the same fabric on the windows above my bed and the archway to the kitchen. I grew up in a house that every room was a different theme. At my mom and dad's house, the living room is a typical Irish living room, the kitchen is country with red gingham, my room was blue with a celestial theme, their bedroom was a beach theme and their bathroom was a cow theme. I've always loved the different themes in different rooms idea.

I was thinking of getting some large frames and adding classic movie posters and framing them around the living room.

But I still have issues with figuring out what I'm doing with my kitchen.
