Experimenting with small beads

I always love to create things myself, especially when giving presents as I’m a firm believer that these should be meaningful.

Here’s a recent craft I did to give out as a present.

White canvas, letter cutout, glue and small beads.

 

DIY: Chair Transformation

I love new products and innovation however I have a soft spot for things which are upcycled and given a new life.

I hate to see so many things trashed because they have a small part which is broken.

Why not fix it? I understand most of the cases it’s not even worth the hassle, however when it comes to furniture they can become a wonderful object with some TLC.

Here is my take on a chair my father found dumped. He fixed the leg and I decided to paint it and give it a new life.

Must say, one of the main inspirational source was my visit to the Greek islands of Santonirini and Mykonos!

The process is extremely simple! First sand it down using a sand paper, clean it off with spirit and start applying the base coat.

Found this particular one which you can apply directly to wood or laminate.

Once all of it is applied evenly with a brush let it dry as instructed by the product you will be using.

Choose the colour of your liking and apply after the base coat is dry.
In this case 2 coats were applied to get a more solid colour finish and this is the result!

Hope that this inspires you to be creative with something you have or you might find and turn it into a lovable piece.
