11  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Red Curtain Headboard on: January 08, 2010 05:31:21 PM
I had a single red satiny curtain from my old house and it had no where to live in my new house. So I took it, part of a mattress topper, and a piece of wood and made it in to a headboard for my room. It's super easy. Just take a piece of wood that is about the size of the headboard you want and cut a cheap mattress topper to fit it. A mattress topper is way cheaper then most big lengths of foam in the craft section Smiley Then you wrap the fabric around the front and staple it to the back. I recommend two people for this job and don't pull too tight or you may end up with weird lumps and have to pull out staples... ask me how I know

The artwork is something I made, the pillows are from Target, and the white floofy rugs are called flokati rugs. It's actually two rugs side by side because two small rugs are cheaper than 1 large and you can put them in separate areas later if you want Smiley They're from Overstock.

That's the before. I think the new headboard really ties in the rest of the room and pops against the black wall. AND it was actually super easy to make too!
12  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / A new studio on: July 31, 2009 07:59:18 AM
I lurk on craftster a lot but I have a new studio area (moved houses) and it's so pretty that I was dying to share!

First, it's in a house that was built in 1929 and have lovely plaster walls, hardwood floors, and wood trim I need to strip still due to gobs of paint on it.

This photo is part of my business area. The singing flowers are based on Alice in wonderland and the cabinet hold pinback button parts.

A close up of how my button parts are organized.

This is where I craft and work on the computer. All my crafting supplies are on the shelves above me and then the finished products are put in my closet next to me if need be. I use a lot of vintage travel cases to hold my supplies and found I can write on them with a dry erase board marker

These doors lead to my bedroom. They were originally clear glass and that was bad considering I have kids and a roommate that would come in to the studio. The house is old and my doors don't lock so I put scrapbook paper over the window for now. The red thing above the door is a kissing ball I made

My favorite thing in the room. I love this weird vintage vase! Test tubes and wire? Perfect!

13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Nightmare Before Christmas Dishes on: November 12, 2008 11:32:21 PM
I'm a long time lurker, sometimes poster (sometimes being like once in a bluemoon) and I finally decided to jump in and share my stuff.

These are a set of four plates I've been working on and I love them. We'll see if I'm capable of putting them in my post now....

... or apparently I'm not allowed to post photos directly yet. They're in my craftster gallery though and on http://www.flickr.com/photos/30436812@N05/3026272733/in/pool-etsyhomefront
