My Latest Mod Podge Rocks Tutorial and Concerns About Personal Hygiene

My latest tutorial is up over at the awesome Mod Podge Rocks blog.

I was casting around for affordable ways to spiff up boring cabinet knobs and came across some really large washers at Home Depot and kinda rolled with it.

In other news I am prepping for this weekend’s big Rose Bowl Market and furiously working on finishing up a bunch of projects (does it seem to you that I am ALWAYS furiously working to finish a bunch of projects?  It seems that way to me.  I did not picture my post-corporate life being quite so….furious.  I wasn’t imagining bon-bons and soap operas but I thought that gaining 45+ hours per week would allow me to, I don’t know, bathe or something.  Apparently I was wrong).

I’ll have the before and during pics up tomorrow.  And, if all goes well, (that’s my version of positive thinking) the after pics ready for Friday posting.

Wish me luck!

I’ve been surrounded by amazingly creative people my whole life. My mom can, and does, make anything. The family has on occasion speculated that she just whipped up my dad one day when she discovered some left over fabric and stuffing. My three sisters have mad skills ranging from needlework to cooking to out and out ART. My father’s desk when I was growing up had a model train set going around it, oh, and he made that desk-from scratch. I’m the youngest and, as you can imagine, it’s a hard series of acts to follow. Truth be told, I’ve spent many, many years suppressing the creative instincts I learned at home. But I realized (rather late in life) that few things bring me more joy than making and creating. For the longest time when I went to stores I didn’t think, “I want that” I thought, “I can make that.” And, with a deep breath and a leap, I’ve started on a very new, kinda scary path. I’ve given up my steady, dependable (dull!) corporate life to spend my days happily humming away in my garage designing, creating, painting, decoupaging and sawing and, since this blog will be an honest take on things, there is also a fair amount of tripping, spilling and swearing. Through this blog I hope to share with you the struggles and (hopefully) triumphs of a very non-businessy business person. I also hope to make this blog a resource for people who like to work with their hands and who are, like me, always looking at things and thinking “I could make that!” I’ve lived many places since I left Cheltenham Road; I currently live in Los Angeles California. So, with this preamble- Welcome to Cheltenham Road! Please come on over and make yourself comfortable – the place is always open.

  1. What a great idea!
    This would be a great organizing tool for kids dressers. Blue for pants, yellow for shorts or some such.

  2. Oh Donna! That is a great idea for these. REALLY wish I’d thought of it that way!

    I’m looking around my apartment wishing I had knobs on everything so I can do this!
