How to make a rotating organizer for paints

Rotating organizer paint: Jars, tubes and bottles of paint … and a lot of the heap. Find the right, it means to dig the entire drawer (but you can not
find … 🙂 Let’s try to put in order the chaos, and even to spread-to paint from the heart 🙂 It has long wanted to try.

The idea began here with this old pencil holders

At the bottom of it showed up bearing.

If the pencil holders are not there, you can buy a rotatable plate without any problems. So, decoupage shop bought wooden round bars for hours (shop for handicrafts within walking distance – the eternal temptation 🙂 Two circle – 30cm in diameter, four – with a diameter of 25cm, the three “bar thread” length of 15cm, and two wooden pencil holders (lynx tips, too, will need to live somewhere).

Bars along the edges slightly rounded sandpaper and a block sawed in half. I cover all that stuff a dark stain in the direction of the wood grain.

In order to rotate the ball bearings fun, one of the boards pasted adhesive Moment-assembling of the cover from plastic disposable food container, it is smooth and durable. This circle will be the base of the organizer.

Probably there are many techniques of multi-layer dye, but I decided to just use an old fence principle. Paint with anything 🙂 I found three blue paint of those that do not mind. One of them gave a lilac and was rejected, the second gloss. Gloss me to anything and I mixed the paint with matting paste.

So first, dark blue paint across the surface (do not forget that the painting should be strictly in the direction of fibers
of wood). Thus all paint preform.

I was about to take up the second blue paint, lighter, but just remembered the old fence. We assume that the next time it decided to make a light. Therefore squeezed just two bright paint and sponge smeared before reaching the edges of the workpieces (edge ​​”shabby from time to time”).

From time to time … Yes, it means more than not craquelure. I found one-component Crackle.

The following hypothetical fence owners decided to return to the blue and I painted over cracelures light blue paint.
Again, it did not reach the edges of the blanks. Eclipsed craquelure cracks.

In general, it’s almost enough, but not a favorite turquoise? Held in places almost dry sponge.

And once again he walked the bright paint, barely touching almost dry sponge and immediately removing the excess with a damp

Old – so old! Without dirt can not do. This is my favorite American “dirt”. It is gray and brown, both
wonderful stain.

At this point I decided to add his future tower rise to jars not hide behind each other. To do this well it came from a box of chocolates (cherry chocolate was delicious :)) soldering iron to cut a hole the size of bars (first tried proskresti nail, but it is a very long-running process and the plastic began to crack). With a soldering iron I handled in five minutes.

Dyed both halves of the box as the same as the wooden workpiece, but without stain. All parts are covered matt acrylic varnish.

Well, that’s got to build. Moment need glue-mounting screws and washers.
Assembly Diagram (starting from the bottom, “the podium” just worn on the bars).

The lower tier of the double I made preparations, as heavy paint and boards seemed to me shaky. For tubes the diameter of the hard-boiled “crocodiles” for curtains that are cemented on the screws with rings. I do not know how they
are called, in the store were in the department for the manufacture of jewelry.

Well, that’s all rotating organizer is ready and you can celebrate the new home of my paints.

Thank you for attention!

How to make a cardboard room dresser with drawers

Today is the story of how they took me to the “weak.” Background to this. My dear husband, watching from the sidelines as I have done for his future workshop organizers, somehow casually said: “A chest of drawers to make the most – weak?”.

And that’s not weak! The idea is good – it is necessary to embody.

Making it big or small does not want to, so the size is determined to pretty thoroughly, as a result of it I turned 60 cm wide, 30 cm deep, 40 cm high.

Required material for the manufacture of chest:

  • Bookbinding, beer and corrugated cardboard
  • Kraft paper
  • Calico, flax
  • Clay time carpenter, furniture PVA glue Moment Crystal
  • Decorative handles 5 pieces
  • A pair of scissors, a knife construction, square, steel ruler

Sidewalls cut out and glued them together Because gofro-beer and cardboard.

Then, under a shelf on which to stand the boxes, I cut out of thick corrugated double extra sidewall (if you do not have a double bellows, then glue the two sheets of corrugated among themselves) in height, they are the future of the boxes, between the sidewalls do gap of 0.7 see – is the thickness of the shelves when they dry out, paste them calico.

The thickness of the side wall of the chest turned I 1, see, here this centimeter inside of the bottom will be less, and the outer side of cardboard beer more, then the side walls arise, both in the groove and the outer angle is smooth and beautiful.

On the back wall pasted an additional panel of double corrugations, it will draw the top shelf, the panel is fitted a calico.

Middle shelf of double corrugations, covered with calico, but the top shelf has turned me into two parts – the lower side (calico) made of corrugated cardboard, and the upper side (county) of binding cardboard. I stuck to the fabric glue PVA furniture, it is quite thick and therefore does not soak the cardboard, besides dries leaves no residue on the fabric.

The slots and the end of the shelves smeared glue Moment Crystal base and gathered chest, here and form emerges. Honestly – time to dry out a lot of details, especially the need to ensure that the details are not led, so they dry under pressure. The main helpers in my dry parts were building a hairdryer and a conventional iron. I dried up details to iron an iron (no steam) and put everything under the press, all the details I then get smooth and the obvious-e-strong Yen.

Jumpers I made of several layers of cardboard – Binding cardboard, corrugated and then back Binding cardboard, fitted a calico and drying again 🙂

And here is the back wall – and if I had had doubts at the beginning of the production chest, now they are gone, and my husband has a sarcastic smiles, and looks with interest!

Now pull out a roll of kraft paper – which is an excellent paper, it really helps me in the construction of houses – and here is very, very useful, before she had to beg in the mail, and now it turns out you can buy at any hardware store. All angles on the dresser sizing kraft paper, flat area and at the same time securely fastened. The width of the side wall in my 30 cm, so the flax I cut width of 35 cm, was enough to bend to the rear wall, as well as 0.7 cm on the front side.

Sizing flax whole stripe – 40 cm + 60 cm + 40 cm, slightly pulling the sides, land dryer, and then makes an incision, but not completely, leaving 0.5 cm Nedorezov strip and are bent inward.

The inside of the sidewall I cut out of cardboard binding and it was stretched linen.

On the back wall, cut a piece of linen, tuck it did not, because getting unwanted thickness, so pull out the sewing machine and shoot on the edge of the rear part decorative stitch, it will prevent crumbling edges, and at the same time decorate the back wall.

Well, the base is almost ready, and I will proceed to assemble the boxes.

Glue them from binding cardboard – glue Moment Crystal, most importantly, to sustain the angle when prikleivaetya bottom off the drawer. After drying, all the corners of the sizing kraft paper and glue Moment Joiner.

Then I take a piece of linen cloth, cut out so that at one end has the edge, paste starting from the middle of the end portion of the box, exactly where I will be out front. The edge should come about 1 cm, overlapping edge strips.

A neat corner is not difficult to obtain, most importantly, do not cut it off from the edge, and leave about 0.5 cm from the corner and glue corner of the overlap, but watch out for, so that an overlap was not large – 0.5 cm is sufficient crop of flax I have not thrown away, they gave me very useful to align the bottom of the box.

When drying linen to become very strong and the box, respectively, too.

Now the beer from cardboard I cut and paste the internal parts of the bright calico, then pasted them in a drawer – first the bottom edge of the sheeting on the walls of the box infer and also sizing, extra bracing never hurts 🙂 then the side wall.

The bottom of the boxes I have to decorate in the same way as the back wall of the dresser – turned out smoothly and beautifully. The front panel is in the boxes will serve about 0.5 cm beyond the edge of the box, I cut them from binding cardboard and fitted a calico polka dot, two tones – red and brown. Decorates the front panel of a small insert of flax, I calculated how long needed a strip on one such box, multiply it by three, added centimeters to bend and cut a single strip of linen, then defer drawing on the machine, and then to cut the strip into three parts drawing all received the same. So I did the same on the lower drawers.

It remains only to paste faceplates on the boxes and screw the knob.

But I also have not yet made a small pocket under the instrument, first thought simply glue the rectangle and in it the cells, but not too interesting turns, and then my eye caught a paper tube, I did an example, look good, but it is only enough to two pockets, and they need me 7-8 pieces, that’s only because of what they do, turn the kraft paper is quite long and dry, again, hard, and then see how the husband gathered up all my scraps of cardboard and tries to shove the stove to clean up the mess and burn! Nightmare! Well, how can you – it’s a building material, my hamster fainted After a brief fight, winning, twist from scraps of corrugated tube!.

How I did it:

  • – Cut a strip of cardboard with a longitudinal section;
  • – then the strip of kraft paper is twice longer than the strip of corrugated cardboard;
  • – are coated with adhesive kraft paper;
  • – take the paper tube is wound on her corrugated;

– tightly pressed corrugation to the tube rolling on the smeared adhesive kraft paper, pick up a hot iron and then start to iron for this length of the tube, the corrugation becomes smooth, without corners, kraft paper is securely bonded, and I get a smart, smooth and I desired a strong tube diameter.

7 do such blanks, then trimmed to 4 cm and a polustolbik receive here. Adherend workpiece between a crystal and an adhesive torque cushioning inner piece flax. Then I got carried away and forgot to take a picture as is pasted strips of peas on the front side, but, in principle, it’s obvious that the edges of the strips come into the fold and they are not visible on the front side. And for the brushes I made a special glass higher.

All end of the rep I plastered my favorite band in the peas.

Well, that’s it – my chest is ready!

Even high brush finally found my place 🙂

Chest turned out quite roomy, even the fur was a place.

Thank you that you had the patience to watch until the end!

I would be very glad to hear your opinion about this dresser!

DIY Beaded Swan Tutorial

Hello! friends, today I am going to make Swan from beads. Very simple but more beautiful.

Required Material:
packing plasticine
paper (I took the toilet, as these are more convenient glued and dry.)
PVA glue
beads (white, can be matte, shimmer can be black and red.)
Wire (copper thickness 2-3mm.)
Adhesive ( Super glue)

We form the shape of a swan out of plasticine torso. Then, paste the paper and leave to dry (day or two).

Then sheathes shape like an egg, first do the belt, then to both sides of the edges of the weaving. I have to say that both swans steering me in different ways, first I just practiced and some did not consider in which direction lie beads. I have to say that the part where the head is better to leave some space at the end, and do not bind, t.k.zatem beads is inserted under the neck.
there you are

Then we start manufacturing swan. Draw a sketch, cut better cardboard and do form.

Then we put pen drawing.

Next, do the feathers. I have on each wing had an average of 25 wings. they certainly do better for longer.

Then sew (or glue) wings.Tut main squeeze so that the edges, and lying on their sides.

Then proceed to the manufacture of the neck, unfortunately, no pictures.Thick wire, and bends the shape of the neck of a swan, then sheathe beads, while the end is best to reduce the number of beads. Potom take and stick your neck under the head. Well, that’s basically it! Thank you for attention!


How to Make ” happy Chef ” Clock

Watch “Happy Chef” with the décor and the pendulum of salt dough.

1. Draw a sketch. If the round clock (as in the photo) encircle the circumference of hours on paper. It is the center of our composition 🙂 And then we draw our chef as if he comfortably sat. Telo cook should find little in the circle so that later it was for that stick to the face of our Povarenkov! (All parts of the body) Just pay attention to the arrows. Mark the circle endpoints to reach that of the arrow so that they can move freely and cook figure they do not interfere. I had a long arrow slightly undercut. It is better to use the little arrows. Now on sale, you can pick up a variety of arrows for hours. There are arrows in the form of a fork and knife! Goodwill draws a sketch. Note that one leg will cook pendulum. A second elongated at the bottom of the dial and covers the fixing of the second leg to the base of the pendulum. (Think about these details in advance!) What would have turned out that mounting the pendulum to be seen? When the sketch is ready, you can continue! Sketch we get on the scale of 1: 1

2. Take the tracing paper and translate drawing on tracing paper.

3. Next, cook salt dough! In 4 of the salt ( “extra” small), 2 parts water, you can add 1 teaspoon of wallpaper paste (dissolve in warm water). And knead the dough, gradually adding flour. The amount of flour on the experience difficult to define at once, and it makes no sense just to fill a lot of flour, gradually add to that condition until the dough becomes like plasticine. Here, of course, you need a little practice. One thing I will say is necessary to knead the dough long and hard, the longer you have it hesitates, the more plastic it becomes! It can be constantly wet hands if you feel that is not enough water. In principle, it is possible to replace the salt dough polymer clay or plastic, now it is good enough, and the blind cook from it.

4. The dough is ready. Wrap it in cellophane and pinch off a piece to the rest of the dough does not dry. Take a pan, put it on our tracing and start sculpting! Torn off a piece of dough about this so that we have enough to make the body! Moistened hands (which is easier to work) crumble in the hands of a piece and give it a shape of the body.

Lek in front of your eyes is a drawing on tracing paper. Apply the item to the drawing in order to accurately get into proportion. The body is ready. Further, sculpt shoe (are putting to the templates), the second shoe do. Then sculpt the foot – leg and the left foot with water glue on the edge of the leg slipper. All we do in the templates! Using a knife, you can give the crease in his trousers. Just Do the second leg, we sculpt it separately from the cook to the side as it is a separate element, a pendulum. Similarly to impose shoe with water the second leg, as in the photo.

Then do the hand (first hand, and then impose them on the sleeve). Then the head, then the cap. Next came the small details. Buttons. Oh yes! We forgot the apron! Roll out the dough thinly, cut out a rectangle. The edges of the hurting, the bottom made wavy, apron and top, on the contrary, is gathered! Remember the childhood sculpting from clay! Moisten the body cook out there, where it will be a little apron with water and attach the apron top, as in the photo. Surplus clean. From tony use, Koy flattened sausage dough. Do the same with a handkerchief. To finish the details. Ears, nose, hair, laces, beads for the dial (I did both the cake roses and leaves and buttons just like in the photo). Just do not forget to make a wire holes antennae! (Which we then make of the wire and glued into these holes)

5. Oh, and we forgot the cake! In one hand, our chef holding the cake. With a plate of sausages does on the hand, then he cakes and decorates his balls, cherries. You can instead of cake, think of anything! Check if you have forgotten some details?

6. We put our cook in the oven! On low heat, 50 degrees, we dry our figure to rosy color. It may take a long time (it all depends on your oven, so you need to keep the process under control!) The first-hour look into the oven when the temperature is too high a figure may swell! Avoid this if for the first-hour figure has not changed, then all is well and you can add the heat to 100 degrees and raise the temperature gradually to the dough a little bit browned! Most look into the oven, so as not to burn! Once you see that the figure was the rosy cream (like the face and hands in the photo), you can pull the product out of the oven. Allow to cool completely hand-made article, it is better to continue to work the next day.

When the figure has cooled down, you can start to paint it with acrylic paints.

8. Next, Let us watch. Select a card or a napkin decoupage you like (von hours which you have in mind, as the stripes in this case).

Glue the background on the basis of hours. “Substrate” with a sponge and acrylic clock edge. You can even sprinkle on the surface for an even more powerful effect of aging (at the bristle brush a little paint recruit and hold your finger on the brush at the level of the dial spraying paint on the surface of small droplets). After drying cover any acrylic paint.
9. Our chefs are glued to the dial on the indispensable glue “moment” of the second leg of glue to the base of the pendulum. Mark up where will our roses and leaves on the dial, glue, and so does the rest of the mark (as pictured). Here is our watch and we are ready!
10. The only center of gravity of our watches can be removed (as the figure is more than the right), so the clock should be secured to the wall in two locations, how do I, or attach the other side of a counterweight-bob to the reverse side. We attach our pendulum. And the clock ready!

DIY: Homemade Vertical Garden

The materials are very basic, it’s a matter of making the list and going to a hardware store or a warehouse where tools and construction materials are obtained. The most important thing is to have on hand:

A couple of plastic bottles, all the same size. I thought the 2-liter ones were perfect.

  • Plants that are easy to care for, depending on the climate of your city.
  • Plastic noose, because that of natural fibers deteriorates when in contact with water.
  • Flat metal washers. The size varies according to the thickness of the rope.
  • Scalpel, scissors and a permanent marker.
  • Screwdriver and pliers (just in case).

We removed the labels from the bottles and cleaned them. It is not necessary to waste time removing the remaining glue because we can cut that area further.

We mark a point on each side of the bottle where we will pass the rope, so they must be aligned (parallel) so that there is no inclination.

Open the holes with the tip of the screwdriver, just in the place that we mark the point, drilling in a straight line the plastic to the other side.

When the holes are ready for the rope, with the marker, we delineate the space that we are going to cut where we will plant our plant. And we cut very carefully. We can make a small cut with the scalpel to insert the tip of the scissors and cut more easily.

With all the cuts made, we measure the space in which we are going to hang our future garden, to know the length of the rope. We begin to insert the rope, fixing the height we want with knots, always with a washer between the bottle and the knot to avoid falls.

I made my garden of 4 levels or “bottles” and chose a neon rope that contrasts with the spots in the leaves of the plant that I chose, commonly called Potos or Photos. I left about 40 cm. Between each bottle because this bush grows and its leaves hang.

When all bottles are moored and secured, we plant our bushes with the soil moist to make it easier to handle. It’s going to be a bit heavy, so it’s good to have someone close to help you hang your new, and spectacular, vertical garden in place.

This is for me the first of 4 “green stairs” I want to make to put on a whole wall of my patio. I love how it looks, and I feel very proud because I thought I needed an expert to achieve it, and I love the touch of the recovered bottles. How do you think it was?

I worked in my yard, so after sweeping the soil off the ground, we mopped up with a bit of Fabulous Fruit Passion to freshen up, even more the atmosphere.
