Steampunk themed ottoman is done.

This ottoman is created out of old desk drawers. The legs are recycled wood and braces from odds & ends.

Check out the front of the corner chairs. The backside will have added decor soon.

I am excited about the way these chairs turned out. They are perfect for an artists studio. The next project is to finish the back decor on the chairs and create a matching ottoman. More updates soon.

The backside of the corner chairs are now aged and varnished.

I am so excited to have the back of the chairs looking so good. It happened that I had some Metallic Lustre' on hand and it worked perfect. Next step is to create the cushions and pillows. This project will be done before the New Year.
:-) The last photo is when I first started with the Metallic Lustre'. This product works on everything. Then I rubbed paint in around the gears to look aged.

More pictures of the loveseat.

I did some distress work with sandpaper for that natural grunge look. Now I will work on covering the springs, and finish up the backside of the chairs. Have a great weekend.

Happy December 1st. I have made more progress on the corner chairs.

Today I was inspired to get another layer of stenciling and spray distressing done to the front of the 're-imagined, restoration of the corner chairs. Another light splattering of Teal Blue and a final coat of varnish sealer. Of course, the pillows will cover this part of the chairs, but it is still fun to create this space in a unique style. December looks to be an amazing month of happy surprises. Have a terrific weekend. Peace, Love, and Light to everyone.
First layer of stenciling. Then second layer with gold added.

November continues to bless us with creative projects.

Today I had the semi-gloss gray-toned paint for an industrial look onto the corner chairs. So excited to get to this point in the project. As you can see in the photos attached that I have cut stencils out to resemble wheels and gears. Then used spackling to emboss the stencil designs onto the the backside of the chairs. Once the spackling was dry and sanded down I painted on 'Peel Stop, Triple Thick high-build binding primer.  The front of the chairs will only have the stencil painted (sponged on) wheels and gears. All the fabrics for the cushions are in the 'steampunk theme'
'. And lastly, we had some dry roses to dab into the paint for added bling to the door wreath this year. Isn't that cool looking? Gray color in progress images.

Started a new project today.

My neighbor was ready to get rid of a couple 'corner' chairs, so I have taken on the challenge to remake them into something else. This project may take a few months.I will post progress every month until they are done. This is fun because I've never owned a corner chair before! The arrow accent board is done, and it is super nice. I can imagine it on the wall in many directions, but for today it is hung up on the door. 11-15-22, Kilz primer paint added, and it is looking great! 11-20-22, The corner chairs are starting to look industrial with the legs added.

Thank You Veterans 11-11-2022.

Veteran's day is almost here, Thank You. I am also wishing everyone a happy mid-term election day. I have started working on my new 3-D accent board. Using a jigsaw I cut an arrow shape out of a chalk board. This board will not have as many attachments as the others. I scraped the paint across the board to create a kind of vintage look. Watch for more updates this month. Have a fantastic week. June
