You ! :laughing6 My heart stuttered. I thought perhaps you'd had a family member that was in the locksmith business or something. Sigh. At least it was a nice burst of adrenaline before stepping into the classroom. Today: "Eliminating Comma Splices and Fused Sentences" Yay.

I just want to come hang out at your house now and I believe you are referring to the 2nd Matrix movie with The Key Maker.

I have seen people use a table saw to saw all of the bookends off at say 3/8of an inch and then they glued them to a surface. It cuts down on the weight factor.

Oh and another thing, the HPL (houston public library) was tossing books by the truckloads into recycling dumpsters all over the city. They did a story about it on the news. Maybe you could find out where they are dumping them and then do some dumpster diving...lol.

Edit: It was Harris County..

Ok, not sure how many keys I can come up with but can I offer up other stuff that just doesn't work at my place and might at yours?

Actually Mala, you would probably be impressed with my strange habitat as well. Mine deals more with colors though.

Keys to nothing: 14
Key to old Givi case too add a motorcycle flair: 1

(I can look, but I might have already cleared out the locks and internal lock parts that I had a big bucket of - there's bound to be a dozen more keys in there if I haven't already thrown them out)

mala004hl4

Pair of green glass lights with wall plugs - one long, one round. Kinda heavy, but nothing a good ceiling anchor can't handle. I think they're great, but I just don't have anywhere to put them and they've been collecting dust for a few years now. This is the round one on & off.

I had a thing for primary colors when I had my last apartment...

Custom coffee table. Looked AWESOME under rotating-colored Xmas lights!

Rebecca, you rock! :laughing6 Are the lamps too big to fit in a backpack wrapped up all safe and sound? Looks like Mogee and need to make an acquisitions trip across H-town. Those things are hella cool!

Whoa! Did you use the heavy duty foil? I tried covering one of the big oaks with it, but it didn't create the effect I wanted. It looks good on your wall though. I've thought about doing something like that and putting a thin layer of squishy between (like quilt padding) then impressing patterns into the foil and brushing with a light stain or glaze. How long has that been there? No rips, sags, etc?


Tin foil (aluminum really, but who cares) is awesome. . . unless you get it caught in metal fillings. Talk about some bangedgoofy pain!

Perhaps I should have a MH meet-n-greet in a couple of weeks so you guys can come experience the Mala Hovel. Maybe I can scrabble enough keys or books together to have at least one impressive display by then. :icon_bigg It'd be a good time since we have several new members.

No, it's standard foil (actually, probably less than standard because I bought it at the dollar store to safe a few bucks). The wall I put it on was flat, so I left some natural wrinkles in it and used a few thick coats of plycrylic over it to seal it in.

So far no rips or tears, but I would imagine patching it would be super easy - rip off a piece of foil, spray it with adhesive, let it dry, then poly the patch.

I also have a full wall upstairs that I foiled, but it had a popcorn texture on it. I cut the foil into small pieces (4 x 6 in ?) and flattened them out, then stuck them on and used a clean/dry paint roller to press them into the texture of the wall. Poly over it again to seal it.

The lights are too bog to take both at once in a backpack, but let me know what side of town you're on and when and I'm sure we can work something out. The round one in the pic is probably about the size of a helmet, and the long one is about as long as my arm from the elbow down.
