My weekend was more productive than relaxing. LOTS of cleaning and washing for me, tidying up the garden and enjoying the sunshine outside (if you’re in Melbourne, wasn’t yesterday perfect weather-wise?). Lots of day-dreaming about building a new house. I hung this colourful painting that my sister did for me last week:
Cute huh? (Please excuse the terrible iphone photos! My camera has died and I’m in desperate need of a new one!)
It’s not so much a copy but shall we say heavily inspired by a painting I love by Guy Maestri that I saw in a magazine:
I was in one of those really motivated moods yesterday when I finally got started on a few projects I’ve been putting off for ages, and turned this vintage Chippendale chair:
In the cold light of day I can see the seat needs another coat, which will have to wait until my next hit of motivation strikes! I did manage to have the two grey and white cushions (there’s another chair that matches) with black piping made ahead of time. I know the curtain doesn’t go well with the pillows, these are my thick lined curtains that we put up to keep the warmth in our little old house in winter. I know exactly what I want to replace them with, but I’m still trying to track down the fabric I have in mind (that’s probably another post altogether!).
Happy start of a new week xx
