Are you confused about whether something you've crafted belongs in the General or Reconstructed category?  Here are some tips to help you figure it out.  If your item started it's life as something completely different with another purpose than what you transformed it into, it's considered Reconstructed.  If you have painted, reupholstered, decoupaged, embellished, decorated or resurfaced an item that still has the same function as before, it's considered General.  It's also considered General if you have constructed something from your craft supplies, like a new lampshade to replace an old one.  

Using this definition, here are some things that would fall into each category:

General
Building an ottoman from scratch
Reupholstering a chair
Decorating a lamp shade with scrapbook paper
Creatively painting a book case

Reconstructed
Tearing the guts out of an ottoman to transform it into a storage bin
Making a tote from a tea towel
Making craft storage from a record holder
Sewing a pillow from a T-shirt
Making a lampshade from gummi bears
Turning a book case into a gerbil habitat


If you want to post a jewelry display or holder, that goes over in the Jewelry and Trinkets board. 

If you're still not sure where your project goes, send a PM to one of your Home Sweet Home moderators (MissingWillow, pixieval, photojenn) for assistance figuring it out.
