Like a face lift..but for a chair.
When we moved into our home 2 years ago, we decided EVERYTHING should be red. I'm not really sure why, but it seemed like a good idea at the time.
I'm slowly but surely de-redding everything, and this brings me to my latest little diy project - a 'dip-dyed' chair. I've seen some beautiful images of chairs with dipped legs on the bible that is pinterest so I thought I'd give it a go.


I just measured the same distance up each leg, popped on some masking tape and got the paints out!

While clearing out our office and trying to make it resemble a room again I uncovered some old oil paints and paint brushes. These were from when I was doing about 9 years ago and guess what? They still work! I had expected paints to have shrivelled up and dried and the bristles to have disintergrated into a fine dust, but no!

I am under no illusion that I have ever been a good painter/artist, but I have been feeling really crafty and creative this last few days and thought I might try my hand at creating something. I have been after a framed picture of a blackbird to hang on my wall for a while now and have yet to find one I like - so that was my inspiration - I'm not sure if it's wall worthy though!
