before & after...

I finally finished decorating this old chair I
bought a few months ago!

This is basically what I did :
primed the frame using acrylic-primer,
put gold-leaf on the hole frame and then used
antiquing technique to make the gold look old,
then I varnished it using water-based-varnish.
I put a new cotton fabric over the old green velvet,
using staple gun, and finally I glued some
rose ribbon on the edges.

the old and tired chair...

I'm quite happy with the chair now, so I will
definitely use it in my home.
Looking forward to tackle more projects which
I have already bought! ;-)

Thank you for stopping by.

one year already!!

On this day last year, I posted my very
first blog ;-)
How a year flies by!!!

Come in the evening, or come in the morning;
Come when you're look'd for, or come without warning.
Kisses and welcome you'll find before you,
and the oftener you come here
the more I'll adore you!

Thank you all so much for stopping by.
