Have you been waiting in mute anticipation to find out more about this cool upcycled vinyl desktop organizer? Well, if you didn’t immediately go to my Etsy shop and buy it, then I assume you want to make your own. This project is a bit more involved than the record bowls I showed you how to make last week.

I put my awesome record fascinator with a birdcage veil on Etsy as a custom order. I’m not selling that particular one, but I’ll make one like it to someone’s specifications (whatever color veil they want/different types of flowers, etc.). I stopped by Carmine’s this afternoon and made John take some pictures of me in the veil that were halfway decent.
John thinks that we should go to Surplus Sid’s and get matching top hats for the wedding, and I should just add a veil to the top hat. I kind of like that idea too, honestly. And speaking of Surplus Sid’s, if you’re in the market for a homemade K-9 made from what appears to be part of a popcorn maker and the top of a litter box for $17, stop by Sid’s in Carrboro.
We also found a Dalek Sec hybrid mask. I have no idea how much that is, because it was up high and I already felt like I’d bothered the woman working there enough.
I’m on a bit of an upcycled vinyl kick recently, so I’m going to attempt to make a record purse sometime soon. I got the handles for it today, but I need John to fix my sewing machine so I can make a lining for it. I also have a design in mind for a TARDIS apron that I want to try once I start sewing again. I have a new DIY tutorial for my record desktop organizer that I’m going to post on Monday, so be on the lookout for that.
I was about to go yell at the cats for scratching on something, then I realized that sound was actually hail hitting the window! I guess they weren’t kidding about the tornado warning / severe thunderstorm watch. I guess this is a good stopping point for this somewhat disjointed post.
Have some useless vinyl you don’t want anymore? Want a cool-looking bowl instead? Here’s how to turn your trash records into neat home decor. Be warned – this probably isn’t the healthiest project. Melting vinyl can give off toxic fumes, so make sure your kitchen is well ventilated and don’t do this if you have children around. Read the rest of this entry »
