My goal with this project was to build a retro keyboard that was fully functional and of a sufficient quality that it could be used everyday by a touch typist. In order to achieve this I chose a high quality (though widely available) keyboard as my starting point. This is an IBM Model M "Clicky" keyboard. They were made starting in the mid 1980's and a version is still manufactured today.
Here is a nice stack of different recipes for making homemade laundry detergent that I’ve collected over the years. Do they work? Yes, I’ve had good luck with them. At the time I was using them, we had a relative who was in trade school living with us.
I made a beaded chandelier from dollar store stuff, and I'm so happy I get to reveal it today. I've been teasing the Dollar Store Crafts Facebook page with this project for a few days now, and I finally get to share it! A few months ago, Dollar Tree started selling their seasonal gardening stuff, including hanging wire baskets (and yes, they were only a dollar!) For months I had been trying to find a good base for a chandelier at the dollar store, and it wasn't until my three year-old son called the wire baskets a "chandelier" that it clicked. Well, two months later, the beaded chandelier is here. It really only took about three or so hours to make, but I kept running into problems (ran out of beads, twice.
By Kate on February 17, 2011 T his fizzy magic potion is pretty fabulous and simply worth doing just to see the look on your kids face! My son was gobsmacked and kept shouting…”Mummy look..it’s getting bigger and fatter”!… …which it does… …and it made my son a very happy chap which is cool!
ok, so I saw a couple of these posted here and I just had to try it for myself! "Props" to the crafsters' who did it first! Here is my version of the recycled magazine vase/basket. I'm not totally sure what I will use it for.
After reading this tutorial about recycling magazine pages into mixed-media canvases, I just knew that I had to make some journals using this technique. I prepared 5 signatures of 4 pages each, using the magazine method (I only used 3 pages of magazines instead of 7 so that you could fold them), and I used recycled cereal boxes for the covers and covered them with paint swatches to make the designs. I used a French Stitch binding for the book.
Recently, Kristy, one of my readers and a fellow blogger , emailed me with her wingback chair makeover that she completed by painting directly over the upholstery. Since I've had this mustard yellow chair sitting in the corner of our bedroom for several months now, I was particularly interested and asked her to share the step-by-step process. Kristy's Tips on Painting Upholstery: I recently painted an upholstered chair that I purchased on Craigslist.

This three bedroom, two bathroom residence is on sale and according to the agent, “this superlative warehouse conversion in “Leicester House”, an historic 1880′s building, provides privacy and vast spaces. It features soaring warehouse ceilings, huge original arched timber windows, exposed red brick walls, imposing brick archways of 65 cm depth and high gloss timber floors. By day it is imposing and by night dramatic.” The exposed brick walls and the high concrete ceilings make this apartment feel like a loft. Update the interior with contemporary furniture and make this apartment a real winner!
It’s always been my dream to live in a home with airy, open rooms and lots of exposed bricks, so when this renovation project from Amy came across my desk, I was instantly smitten. Located in Atlanta, this building is about 100 years old and originally served as a trolley depot. Thankfully, Amy and her husband did a wonderful job preserving many of the original details while adding some modern touches that complement the overall aesthetic beautifully. Wonderful job, Amy!
This is the photo that got me busy writing this ideabook. I had never before seen a glass-sided bathtub, and this one completely appeals to my minimalist tendencies. The architect, David Stern, says the client wanted this custom made tub for the kids bathroom and wanted it to feel fresh and fun.
what a makeover! this made me feel 'myownapartamentsick' even more than ever :) bulb-lamp is great, i also made something like that, but there were less bulbs so the effect wasn't that stunning. love the shower, look really great, also the brick wall and, what surprised me, that green tone in the bedroom. you had great ideas and you fortunately put them into effect. the one thing i dislike is a study room. i hate that desk and chair, they just so boring actually. but i adore the red wall and those cat-things, sorry, i have no idea how to call it. ;)
