1  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Covering the ugly porch ceiling? on: August 30, 2011 02:59:37 PM
I want to make my little patio a haven now that the temperature here in north Florida is dipping in the evenings, but the ceiling is ugly particle board. I'm trying to think of something semi-permanent (I rent) to cover it in. I was thinking about cutting up soda cans (I have PLENTY thanks to my hubby) and hammering a pattern into them and tacking them up with metallic thumb tacks....anyone have any other ideas? Smiley

Oh yeah, I'm 21. On facebook as Jama Jenkins (jamajenks@gmail.com)

I love making things from found goods, recycled items, vintage stuff. Smiley

I know it's been a LONG time since anyone has posted in this thread, but I just moved to p'cola from Alabama. Don't know anyone and would love some folks to hang out and get crafty with!

Aww man, if only you live near here, you'd be in luck. I have literally hundreds and hundreds of books that are sitting in a storage room in my house that came from what used to be my one of my in-laws' office.

Are you anywhere near Alabama? Lol.
5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Rolls of calculator/cash register receipt paper? on: March 06, 2010 09:52:14 PM
I have a many many rolls of the paper you would load into an old school accounting calculator or make receipts from on a cash register...They are old and the paper is stained and brown. I don't want to throw them out, but I have no idea what to use them for! Inspiration, my crafty friends?

I love it! I have two of these big ugly things in my dining area, but sadly they aren't mine (yet) so I can't do anything awesome like this with them.
7  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Where can I find Cinder Blocks? on: March 02, 2010 05:38:19 PM
I have some pretty neat ideas, but I have no idea where to begin looking.

I have been looking for a ton of cinder blocks lately, so you could always send them to meeee!

Lol, I really like the wine rack idea, but of course you prob. don't want just bare cinder blocks...it wouldn't look that great. What I was thinking of doing is stacking a bunch of them, held together with some quick-crete (quick dry concrete) or something similar. and then covering them in a mosaic style, but instead of buying really expensive tile, I bought a lot of plates from the thrift store, which on their own look pretty tacky as far as plates, but when wrapped in a towel and busted up with a hammer make really pretty tile bits!

Just an idea! I'll have to find some and let you know how it goes. Cheesy

fish pond/aquatic garden:
when my kids grew out of their kiddie pool I spray painted it with undercoating
(black, rubberized- used for car body to prevent rusting) $5 /can . I used 2 cans.
I dug down in the ground & set it in, put in a small pond/fountain pump, then bought
some cheap goldfish (they grow big & even make it thru the winter) or if you want
a couple koi fish. Plant some plants around, a few plants set into the pool/pond.
the kids love to feed the fish breadcrumbs. this year I'm re-using the "wet banana" slip & slide that's no longer, adding more rocks on & around it to get a riverbed effect. I'd post a picture, but we have a couple feet of snow right now. can you tell I like gardening too? Smiley Good Luck Whatever You Do!

Thanks, seleniebeanie! I had been thinking of doing something like that, and I even have a nice little place that would work perfectly, I just need to figure out the logistics, (and convince my husband I'm not crazy.) Lol

I've used 1 large and 1 small coffee tin as an ice cream maker.

What you do is find a recipe for the ice cream you want, and put those ingredients into the smaller tin. Place the small tin inside of the large tin and fill the hollow between the two with crushed ice and rock salt. Then you roll them around for a while for it to harden up. Yummy small servings of home made ice cream!
