1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Redoing retro chairs help!! on: May 11, 2011 06:16:46 AM

I saved these awesome chairs from the dump, but I'm now not sure where to start to fix them. They're super rusty and my hubby doesn't think they can be fixed. I got some primer, and spray paint for metal, but I don't know if I should sand them or what to get them smoothed out and most of the old, chipped paint off.
If anyone has any ideas to help please let me know! Really anxious to get these done so I can enjoy them this summer!! Smiley

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / painting plastic cell phone case question on: April 17, 2010 11:13:11 PM
ok, i'm not sure if this is the right spot to post this or not, but i'm going to ask anyways
tonight i tried to paint the case for my phone, i cleaned it and sanded it but the paint doesn't seem to really be sticking and you can see all the brush strokes.
my question is, if tomorrow when it's dry i sand it a bit and use spray paint this time if it'll work?

I've been busy this week....

So I started out with this

and ended up with this

This skirt was made from a pair of bondage capri pants

This skirt was made from a poorly made vanity dress haha

And this shirt I found in my mom's closet. I guess it was some weightloss program from the 80's. This shirt rocks and I wish I could actually fit in it haha

This thing was such a hassle for me to finish, I pulled more seams out while doing this piece than any other thing I've done. First I totally screwed up the hood and had to redo it, then like a dummy I bought the wrong kind of zipper and didn't realize it until I had already sewed it on.
But, it's FINALLY finished and I love it!
