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.

Great thing about my course is great stuff like this, got my iPad at collection today. I've already set up a few things and am trying to find a few worthwhile apps to put on 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.

Arwen from Lord Of The Rings.

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

I stopped putting it off and finally bought myself a task, with my impending work load its seemed like the right time to do it. I had to depart with one of my bookshelves though to make room for it, just glad that its big enough to hold some of the stuff so I wont have to re-home those either.

Also since the last time I uploaded a picture of myself here my hair has grown quite a bit, I'm thinking of cutting my fringe again but maybe have it all layered, the bottom half is still shaved off so you can imagine how thick my hair would be if I still had it.

Got to get myself an actual HD camera. This is a progress shot of the siren painting that I'm currently doing. I haven't thought of a name, but there's a high chance that I might consider selling it when its completed. It's currently about 1/10 finished so there's still a lot more work to be done on it. So far I haven't had any major problems that I have had to fix. I'm excited to see what It will look like when I have completed it.

I have finished my first week of Uni. So far it seems really good, the work doesn't seem that hard and from what my teachers and lecturers are saying it seems that I'd be able to cope with the work that I would be doing so long as I focus, study and don't leave things to the last moment. I've met a few nice people already so I'm hoping that next week I'll get to know some more people and the place better. I'm excited!

Made Apple and Raspberry pie earlier today. It tasted amazing.

I want to eventually make the process into being a vegan so I would have to change this recipe a little in the future.

Anyway what I used was:
  • Shortcrust pastry
  • Apple and Raspberry puree 
  • Maple syrup
  • Whipped cream
  • and mixed frozen berries.
Quite simple to make, so I recommend people try and make it if they like fruit pies. The rose with the leaf was the hardest part, trying to hold that together while letting it bake in the oven was a bit difficult but easily manageable.

Getting Older

So my birthday was on Friday and I'm now 18. To me that doesn't make much of a difference a part from it being legal to now go buy alcohol and go clubbing. I kept it pretty simple though, in the morning I went shopping with my mum and she bought me some clothes and shoes that I needed. Around lunch time my bestfriend Jessica came over my place and we watched The Rugrats Movie and caught up with everything. Around 6 Jessica and I headed out and met up with 2 of our other friends; Jessicas boyfriend and Jess no.2. We played two games of bowling, had dinner, a game of laser tag and a game of pool. I sucked the first in the first game of bowling, but made a comeback and one after a drink in the second round. Overall it was a pretty good day.

Catch up...

Start my uni classes in two weeks. It's all pretty exhilarating, I still do not know what to expect though. I'm hoping that either this week or the next I get some clothes that I can wear more comfortably there.

On a side note, I started a painting two days ago. I should be making a frame for it soon and once its dry and framed it will be uploaded here. That mightn't be for a while yet so I'll post something else to keep this blog active.

If any of my readers or someone who's passing by has an idea of what I can post about, I'm all ears :)

DIY paint holder

Some little thing I made last week to hold all my paint and art supplies. It somewhat a botchy job because I didn't plan it and  rushed to get it finished but I'm somewhat happy with it.

I used:
  • 2 metres of calico cotton
  • 2 metres of thick black elastic
  • and white cotton thread.

Got some idea in my head that I going to create. Will post them here with little tutorials when I'm done!

Wednesday, January 16, 2013


Developed a bit of a routine, and managing to STICK TO IT! aha. For the last week and a half I've been starting to get back into walking and running. Only doing small amounts at the moment but I'm already feeling the effects. I feel so much better! I don't feel lethargic and tired all the time, my skin is improving a little. I think If I keep up with this and change the way I eat ( cut out all the nasties) I'll be feeling even better, like how I should be feeling and looking. Its exciting in a way.

 Haven't painted anything in watercolour for such a long time that I need to work on my skills again. Need more water colour paper so that I can practice different shapes and textures. I miss painting with this so I'm going to start up again. Painting two artworks for some people I know at the moment in watercolour, hopefully they turn out good.
