Cuckoo Clock

How ’bout that? The least annoying cuckoo clock you’ve ever heard.

There is a second, more traditional, clock designed but it has no current home.

Just ‘Plane’ ol’ Vinyl

Now I can’t take credit for the design of this. This is pretty much how they come stickered from the factory, but the owner of this one wanted to see some color changes. At his request we replaced the N-number, the CTLS, the colors on the rudder among other smaller items.

We did not change those swoopy’s. They came from the factory and we matched stuff to it.

And now, It’s an airplane with it’s party dress on!  Pimped…. I dare say?

Ceiling Tiles

Ceiling tiles are a unique way to give a room character.

We currently have 3 tiles to mix and match with:

3 tile choices

Any of the three sizes cost $9 a piece for any quantity. All you need are some upholstery nails to attach them to the ceiling.

Stencils

What you’re seeing below is the result of using vinyl to make custom stencils and not the vinyl itself.

This was a poured concrete floor. The tan color is the tinted concrete and everything else is paint. For this logo area we cut a stencil and stuck it to the concrete. Then it was painted in and the vinyl pulled up. Simple as that. You end up with very clean lines.

This same procedure could be done on a wall or any other smooth surface. Stencils can be cut for sandblasting or chemical etching as well.  (Un-stencil related: There is also a semi-transparent vinyl that looks etched already. It can be cut ornately for a front door window or give privacy to your bathroom window.)

Custom stencils can be cut for making tee shirts as well. This would be a unique party idea. Buy your cut stencils and some fabric paint and your party animals each get to give the DIY treatment to their own shirt.

Decorative Ideas

You can change the look of any room with vinyl.

The tile in this bathroom was a ugly mottled green. Now it’s new and improved green.

(Check out what else was done in this bathroom!)

Here’s a lovely window topper. Imagine it with the lovely curtain that is not yet purchased.

Hmm… what else….
