OK! so i had this really bad accident with myself going through a glass window the other morning. 7 stitches in my ear and 4 in my head! OUCH! and various cuts on my hand... but ANYWAY i was home from school for the past few days, and i really couldn't do anything involving a lot of energy, so this is what i did to get my mind off the pain!  Grin

all i did was measure a section on my wall from end to end that lined up with my window on the left side.

then on the top and bottom i traced 1 1/4" radius half-circles, one next to the other with a good ol' black sharpie. then painted inside the lines because that's what i'm best at.

then i took a bunch of pictures, ads, ticket stubs, postcards, cards, ETC and taped them up on my wall in whatever way i so pleased. i covered it up pretty nicely!!

i'm proud. i like the way it looks.

ALSO! last year (jan 2004) i created an easy way to store most of my thread. so its right next to my machine, i can see all the colors! ETC/WHATEVER!

i found a nice long slab of wood in my shed and asked my dad if i could have it. he said yes, so i spray painted it SILVER! just for fun... (actually it was all we had) then about every 2 inches or something... (i can't remember now) i drew a mark then nailed in a nail! its holding up pretty nicely

i nailed 2 more nails on either side near the top, and attached string to that and its hanging up! i nailed it into the wall with help from my dad. its a little heavy but i haven't had any problems with it.

hope you like! or at least get some ideas or something!

That is so cool!  I wish my room looked like that! I'm so jealous!  I'm definetly going to try looking at thrift stores for a chest like yours and I'm going to start my collage project right now! 

Thanks for the inspiration!

It's weird because I had an accident with a window a little while ago too!  It's been like two weeks though.  I had to get stitches on my lip, my chin, my back, and my knee.  I didn't get anything as nice as that collage out of it though.  I just sat around feeling sorry for myself.
