A silk screen design
Alright, I've finally had the time to "screen print" another shirt, so here's the tutorial... Materials needed: a t-shirt, yucky/cheap paint brushes, an embroidery hoop, screen printing ink (I use Speedball brand), a glue that isn't water-soluble (I use Mod Podge), curtain sheer material/tulle/old nylons, and a computer with a printer (or a good hand for drawing things).

Nicole shares on IKEA Hackers how she beautified two solid oak file cabinets from Craigslist with just some paint and new hardware. (I seriously scrolled up and down comparing the two pics because I couldn’t believe they were the same file cabinets!) She also painted her old desktop from IKEA and placed it atop the cabinet base.
