So the top image is what the chair originally looked like when I bought it, and the bottom is what it looks like now. I'm so happy with how it turned out.
I used an outdoor/ interior paint, tinted to 'nightsky' so just slightly lighter than black. It only needed two coats with and undercoat.

Process in how I did it
  1. Bought chair (obviously)
  2. Removed base of the chair
  3. Took of the material that was originally there.
  4. Replaced with black crushed pane (velvet). I used 1cm tacks to attach the material to the base.
  5. Sanded back the chair with sand paper, and files for the crevices.
  6. Painted undercoat.
  7. Painted two outer coats and left to dry for 15 hours.
  8. Re-attached and screwed in the base
Bada-bing bada-boom!!!

I think I will add a varnish to the top paneling and maybe some pink colour gem/rhinestones.

I know I promised a photo of the chair, but I get to complete it this weekend and will put a photoset up instead.

Today was better than yesterday at least, I'm not such a grump. We had a math test, which my teacher decided he'd turn up an hour late for. I feel confident that I didn't fail, and there was only 1 question I couldn't answer.

<Had my hair in buns today but there was excess hair, so I plated there rest. I quite like it.

Dreaming of far off places

Wish That I could go here again. There's nothing much to do and it's very small but Cattai is one of the prettiest places I have been to. The trees there are just amazing. The smell is amazing, and is so far away from everything it is extremely peaceful.

I wish to travel to a forest somewhere and stay for a while, with nothing but nature.

With my cut fringe that I did last week. It's growing on me now.

I FOUND THE CHAIR. I went to an op shop coming home from uni today because I spotted some furniture outside the shop while I was driving past. It exactly how I wanted it and the seat is cushy, so I wont have to be replacing it. I only spent $20 (I could have bought a cheaper one, but I liked this one more). I will upload some images of it tomorrow.

I can finally get started on my DIY project. Now to get some fabric and paint, so I can decorate after I've sanded it back and fixed the footing (slight chipping). AAH I'm so excited.

On another note, got another part of my major assignment back today. I did much better than I thought and turns out that I was freaking out that I didn't do enough for nothing, I DID TO MUCH, ahah. But I still got 11.5 out of 15. Now I have to start with my essay which is due in 2 weeks. Wish me luck!!

Week Off

Had a week off but didn't manage to do a vlog or post here, I've been lazy. I went back to uni today and had a test for biodiversity, I'm confident that I didn't fail, but I probably didn't do as good as I'd hoped for. I find out in the next couple of weeks though.

The iPad they gave us is the biggest distraction I could ever possibly imagine, I didn't log onto my computer FOR A WEEK. How bad is that. Turned out not logging onto my computer gave me a very nasty virus that I had to spend a few hours fixing and backing up my HDD.

I cut my hair again, just the fringe this time, just above my eyebrows. I'm not too pleased with and will try fix it later on. I'm trying to refrain from cutting any length from my hair so that it manages to grow to the length that I want it.

Do you guys think I should take photos and post them here more often, I'm trying to be a better blogger but I don't dedicate enough to it.

Massive DIY plan ahead.

Since getting my desk for my room I have been meaning to get a chair for it. I currently have a gas lift chair that I'm borrowing from another room in the house and its waaaaay to big for my room. I want to see if I can get a second hand wooden chair with padding on the base and on the back so that I can reupholster it with black velvet. I want to sand back the chair and add some extension on to it before painting it a colour, haven't decided what yet, I may just go for black to match with the velvet but I will see when I compare colour swatches and choose then. I'm really excited for this to start happening.

As for uni, all is going smoothly. I have already had my first assessment and test, and managed to pass on both. I have a major assigment coming up soon, so I should start planning what I will be doing soon so I don't get to far behind. I also get my iPad this week. Which means I will have something to be able to efficiently take notes with considering my laptops battery is broken and wont work without the charger BUHUH.

A vlog will be up sometime during the week.

New drawing

Tested out my new pencils! Im so happy to be drawing again, it took me so long to get back to the stage I comfortable with. Anyway this was done with Derwent Studio colours. It's a little off focus because I couldn't get a scanned copy on my computer.

Okay so I want to try out video blogging, they all be put here via youtube. I don't know what I will talk about or video so if you can, suggest me some things.

<This is my cat Rusty and I. He was playing on my chest with my hair so I decided to start recording only he calmed down by the time I started.
I reactivated my youtube account so I'll probably start having video posts here more often now
