Hi all,

Well...I'll be moving into a student house next year and the room I'm getting is icky and ugly.

However, the crafting possibilities are making my insides twitch with excitement.

It's a nice, bright room with a little entrance hall that has one outer door and just a doorframe on the inner door of the hallway.

I think I'm going to hang some sari fabric in the doorframe and over the window...I have a beautiful Indian wallhanging so I think this is totally where I should take the space.

Does anyone have any cheap, beautiful ideas for this room? Right now, it's magenta with sea creatures and geckos on the window. It's scary. :P Although, I may not live there for much longer than a year or so, so I don't want to put too much money into it.

Thanks soooo much!

P.S. I dreamt about making resin jewellery. I think that's when you know you're a true glitter gal. *wink*

Hehe, yes you are a true glitterati when you dream about crafts,lol.
The sari fabric sounds great! sells it by the yard, but it usually has the gold part cut off. I think it's about $2 a yard? The wallhanging sounds totally awesome. I live with my Indian bf and his parents and they have a really neat one. You might try making some things(statues? mobiles?) out of found metal objects and spray painting them a yellow gold color, Indians are big into gold.
Good luck and post pics when you're done!

You can also check Ebay for maybe some pretty glass bottles, things to hand on the wall and small statues.

If you have a local Indian grocery near you they always have lots of cool stuff other than food. Check it out!

Some ideas:

Red (a lucky Hindu color) candles of different sizes on a gold plate or tray.

Fuschia, rich greens, oranges

A brass incense cone burner and sandalwood or Nag Champa incense

A small tea set (brass, ceramic, stainless steel)

A woven sea grass or other grass rug (even if your room is carpet)

Large re-upholstered cushions (silky bright colors) for floor seating

A long colored rope with large tassels hung over your doorknob.
