Golden Chair Revamp

Thrifted wire chair - before & after Thrifted wire chair - before

I found this very cool chair at the recycle centre last weekend and knew I just had to have it – for $2, how could I resist?
I have wanted to spray paint a chair gold for aaages now so after washing and sanding it down a bit, this chair came alive! I absolutely love how the rusty part turned out, like gold leaf peeling off. I sealed the gold with a clear satin varnish.

I now need to find the perfect sized cushion for my old/new gold chair! For now, its a bit of a feature in the lounge.
What colour cushion would you add to it? I cannot decide! xobec


Film Photography: Autumn (part 2)

Film Camera Arlo Film Camera FernFilm Camera Dandelion Film Camera Home Film Camera New Zealand Film Camera Red flower

I have been so excited to share my film photos this week. It is one of the most satisfying feelings having a film developed, waiting…waiting to see them and then when they turn out in a way that you could have never imagined, or done on the computer. Ahhh… I just love all of these photos. My favourite would have to be this flower above. The deep vibrant red against a blurred garden background. Which is your fave here?xobec

Arlo and I had sooo much fun on our Easter weekend away. No reception, New Zealand’s beautiful landscape, fresh fish and plenty of art and reading. I have a heap of photos to share! This week, Autumn has definitely hit with a cold chill in the mornings. It time to hunt out the scarves and wooly socks and prepare for the winter months.
What are your plans for the weekend?xobec
