My latest build, an easy upholstery project, embellished with some EL wire
This is the latest installment in the revamping of our sitting room.It's a solid, oak piece of furniture that was the boy's side table. I made a cool side table to replace the clunky thing, http://www.instructables.com/id/Sci-fiJetsons-Side-Table/ but didn't want to toss it, figured I could use it in some way. At this point, we are all set for tables, and could probably use one more seat offering(besides, around here, tables just become an opport...

My daughter and I like to make Dolls and Stuffies. I've been wanting to make a crib for some time, partly as a challenge to try something new, and also to create something that other people would like to have or re-create for themselves. It is difficult to find lovely cribs out there, reminiscent of days gone by. I thought back to what I had as a young girl, and also old bed designs that I had seen in a museum, with the rope-style platforms. It i...
