Perfect for the room, for my feet, for my glass of vino, for TV remote! What else would you be doing in these days, aye?!
While it's still fresh I shall share some DIY happenings in our house.
I have these spontaneous ideas of how to style our home.As it is very difficult to get samples of paints, floors, timber even tools to do the job in these pandemic times, I have ideas in my head and I try to visualise how it might look.
Well, I know, modern day problems!!
We have nice glass coffee table but when I got opportunity to get an old tired leather ottoman, I knew it will be perfect fit for sitting room. After some TLC of course.
It was brown leather and now it is mustard yellow. It is unbelievably easy to achieve good result these days because most paints are good quality as long as you pick the right type of paint.
and I am loosing battle of organizing it all. I have purchased extra space on Drive, uploaded rake of stuff on Hard drive. I don't have skill and patience to think it through and organise my stuff. You know what, creative people often are chaotic and messy!
That's me all over!
Chat to you soon... hopefully
Next might be post about my leather puff painting..
I have earned no money this year and spent all I had on the house in beautifying efforts. Ooh, how I loved that part! The spending, I mean! :D
And of course decorating part has been blessing in these times.
I cannot justify my complaining, it will all pass. By the summer it should.
Just a week ago or so I have gone on a mad one!
Booked 4 online courses to learn new skills and create some stuff. Ordered materials I will be using and I AM feeling very upbeat.
Pumped up, lads ! feeling pumped up!
I might be just influenced and unconsciously guided by that Vision Board I made for 2021.
Year doesn't matter, but time line is kinda important.
It is Joanne Condon's short course of How to make Vision Board.
I think I made mine quite right because every time I look at it, it makes me smile. Just leaves me feeling happy. Calms me bloody nerves!!!
Roll on 2021!!!!
I am ready, armed with cement bags, carving tools, paint cans, plywood sheets, saws and staplers, galore of books to read....
Talk to you soon
:))) when you think?! All this social media conundrum is your foot print, your digital footprint that will be there FOREVER! Kids! FOREVER! So make sure you leave a nice one!
I tried out lightbox even I don't have proper lights yet. I ordered them just have to wait and pray that they will arrive. Actually from Aliexpress everything arrives sooner or later. They are very organised there I must say. Seller does not receive payment until buyer confirms delivery. Very organised indeed.
So up here in the gallery you can see my efforts of taking some pics in lightbox with white and black backgrounds. Oh my! Why there is so much mini dust visible on the black one and white balance! where are you?
All I can tell you I am shit at photography and even more on the editing :///// I need to learn a bit more photography art and conker my camera who is not at fault here. There is something I do wrong.
Oh Yea, I forgot to tell you that I actually bought photography course with online coupons which was a scam and on the bright side I got my money back.
At the end of this verbal diarrhoea I shall admit that there are bunch of decent photos. But bloody hell, the struggle is real!
p.s. until official start of Spring only two days left. YAY! So don't disappoint us, Spring!
