What is the one most creative unique project you have done?
December 20, 2012 in Before & After
I would love to share creative ideas that people have built or painted or hung or whatever it is that you made or changed in a creative unique way to your house . This might be hanging photos that you framed yourself or a painting that you did personally or maybe a shelving unit you put together from a box or some planters you arranged in a unique fashion. Anything that perhaps others might not have thought of because it is unique and personal to you but might help others( me especially) to do similar projects of creativity. I guess what I am looking for is more than something you just purchased like a couch but maybe a couch you re-upholstered yourself that you found at a garage sale would be a cool idea. Anything that your that proud to have completed and can share a picture of for others to get ideas. I really like to at least try to do creative projects myself. Sometimes I get frustrated or overwhelmed and quit or hire someone who knows how to use the tools needed that I dont have but if anyone wants to share project ideas for the home I would love to learn. As for myself... well...lets see.. I could start by sharing my love of succulents. I never even knew what these were til I bought this house and became very involved in keeping the plants healthy and preceded to buy many more. I went to a nursery and bought many of them but what I love to do is to put them all together in different arrangements in these clay pots and them surround them with black river rocks. So here is one example of a creative idea that I would like to share. I look forward to learning from anyone who cares to offer ideas. I need to take some close ups tomorrow but I saw another idea as I posted this picture. Ok this one is really cool if you love to be outside and want to create an area with privacy or to block out the sun when its hot. I saw this done on some ad for curtains and i loved it so I decided to hang my curtains( which actually are not outdoor curtains) although they have held up very well to the rain and sun so far. I hung them with wire from one side of this wood beam to the other in front of the sectional I put outside. I must admit at times when its windy they blow in your face but its better than the scorching sun on you and great at night for privacy with candles lit. Anyway hope to here from all you creative people out there.
