11  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: What can you do to a room you can't do anything to? on: June 16, 2010 12:05:49 PM
You could get some removable wall stickers. i just searched on Amazon and there are tons of them, and they will peel off without damaging paint:


Cheap and cute!

Or you could add a giant, colorful poster or "tapestry" - Giant canvases are pretty expensive but if you are somewhat handy you could easily make wood frame and nail some funky fabric around the edges.

Ditto that adding color to furniture or maybe a colorful lampshade, rug or pillows would help.

Adding lots of light will make the room nice and bright. Definitely consider sconce wall lamps and the kind that project light up to the ceilings, those can make a room feel soft and comfortable. A digital photo frame or backlit wall hanging would also help brighten the room. I would paint the ceiling a bright white and also the duct to make it blend in rather than trying to disguise it as something. Paint the walls a cheerful color and use light wood, wicker or white accessories/furniture to keep it light and airy. Maybe a nice-looking fake plant or fish tank would help bring it to life. You could frame the big mirror with edging to make it look more like a real window and put some breezy curtains on them.

It sounds like whatever you do will be a huge improvement! You should post before and after photos!

That's awesome! The squirrel holding a nut was a great idea.

I have looked extensively and didn't seen any, but it shouldn't be too hard to make one I don't think... they are basically circular or ovular blobs with feet right? Maybe we should all try knitting one and then post the results!

My cousins, sisters and I got together to create this winter wonderland. It took about 6 hours from concept to creation. We started with a giant piece of cardboard and ended up with a scene of Santa's workshop surrounded by an igloo, hockey pond, ski hill and santa himself in his sleigh. We had a ton of fun making it and a huge mess in the process.

Here you can see the unwrapped presents going into the machine and coming out the other side all pretty.

Our hockey players on the pond:

One of the skiiers was "injured" so we had to make him a rescue team and gurney:

A closeup of the sugar cube igloo, penguins and polar bear:

Gingerbread Santa and reindeer:

And a close-up of the presents in his sleigh:

And last but not least our goofy gumdrop snowman:

In case you are wondering, the googly eyes are candy sprinkles! Thank you for looking.

I found the answer on this forum. Thanks!

19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Can I cast off from the beginning of my project? on: December 05, 2009 03:13:41 PM
This is sort of dumb, but I made mittens and one thumb is a bit shorter than the other. At the time, I thought it wouldn't bother me but now I would like to fix it. My dilemma is that I do not have any more of the yarn left. I only need a tiny bit more, so my only thought is to shorten the cuffs a bit and use that yarn to extend the thumb.

I am wondering if it is possible to unravel the bottoms and re-cast off in reverse... does that make sense? I don't even know how to search for that. Thought I would ask before I go ahead and mess them up completely.

I have been knitting hats for the ships project, it's organized by a woman in Florida.

They send wool hats and other handmade items to troops overseas. Their "hugs from home" help save soldiers lives on the field, provide comfort for wounded soldiers, and remind the men and women that they are appreciated.

I think it's a great cause.
