Master piece complete

Finished table

Finally my table is finished! This painting does not really fit into a specific genre , but then again , none of my paintings do. I started off wanting it very realistic ( not being true to who i am) and then very promtly decided to mix it up a
bit.
As you can see i wanted to create the feeling of a drawing that becomes a photo-realistic picture (or visa versa)  .

Im so proud of this new master piece.next  step is a glass cover for the table.

Who would have thought that a 20 year old Ikea table that was a hideous purple could turn out to be such a beautiful centre piece.

Cheers for now

home makeover Prosee edition

I have decided to redo the house , one room at a time though.First thought: eeeek this is going to be freaking expensive.

After doing some research I found that It doesn’t have to be so expensive. There are some things u can do yourself and looking around for that one place that can do something for you at a cheaper price is also a plus.

I have started by putting an idea board together. All my ideas , a budget , what to get , phone numbers , etc, are on this board. Its always a great idea to know exactly what you want before you start. That way there is less of a chance that everything goes up in smoke ( or flames if you really messed up ).

What to have on this board :
Colour scheme ( Very very important )
What needs to change ( curtains , rugs ,etc )
Sample of material if you are re – upholstering.
Budget
Calculations of how much paint , material , etc you need.
Measurements of room.
Numbers of the suppliers and businesses that are going to help.
Time frame of your project.

So today I’m going to start with my little project . I’m re doing the coffee table. I have got the sand it down repaint and re varnish.

I’m rushing to the shops now to get everything.once I’ve started I will poast more pics .

Cheers for now
