1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Jute end table tops on: September 28, 2007 12:16:22 PM
I got the jute at Hobby Lobby.  It took one roll for each table top.  I got a tube of liquid nails and a caulk gun.  I started by running a bead of glue around the entire edge and just wrapped the jute around, pushing it down hard as I went.  I had the glue in one hand and the jute in the other and kept going round and round (till I got dizzy).  I put a glass gem in the center to match my living room and to cover up the ends.  The tops are pretty flat and even.  I was worried it would be lumpy.  Thanks for the great feed back.

Is your bed on a frame?  You could attach legs to the head board and attach it to the frame for stability and height.  The legs could be made out wood, pvc, etc
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Chain link fence on: September 19, 2007 12:24:17 PM
My back yard is fenced with chain link and looks like it has been there a long time.  I can't afford to replace it right now but I would like to dress it up a bit.  An elementary school's walking track butts up to my back yard so I would kind of like to do something to entertain the children that walk too.

Double sided tape and vellum paper.  I use this with my daughters doll house so we can change the decor without breaking the bank.  She's six  (so are all of her destructive friends) but the paper has held up very well.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: painted concrete? on: September 19, 2007 12:05:59 PM
I recently painted my concrete porch with paint made for concrete.  There were a ton of colors to choose from.  I put a coat on early in the morning and was able to walk across it by afternoon.  The next morning I put on a second coat.  Then the third morning I sealed it.  It was my first floor painting experience and I liked it better than painting a wall.  It took longer to get out my supplies than to paint.

It depends on the glue that was used.  It may just take water and elbow grease.  If not, then you need mineral spirits.
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: We are Homeowers! But... we've got alot of work today. Fire / Soot Damage on: September 19, 2007 11:57:01 AM
This is going to sound odd but my father was a fireman.  Use the scrubbing bubbles bathroom cleaner.  A few years ago my friends' house burned pretty bad and everything had smoke damage ie. walls, furniture, carpets, clothes.  We saved almost everything by using the bubbles.  Make sure to wear a mask and very good ventilation.

What type of style are you leaning toward?  A lamp base can be made of almost anything.  I'm going to use one of those little suit cases you see at craft stores as a lamp base.

That's such a clever idea and it looks great!  Way to go!
