Vintage Ottoman Makeover

I would like to show you what I've been doing last week.
I've got this old Ottoman from Antique center, It was a very solid piece in original fabric. I took it to my studio and working on a few days and now finished. I am not sure if I like the fabric but it looks okay I guess.

Here is my ottoman make over before and after.

Fabulously French Table & Mirror Make over

Its already Friday, where all week's gone.
I've been making mess in my studio and my home all week.
I found this gorgeous French Style Table/Dresser and a Grand Mirror from second hand shop.
I brough them home at once and started sanding + painting ..
Now found the new home in my entrance.
I love how it turned out.
What do you think?

Happy weekend!

My fabric collection

I love fabric. You can call me fabricholic. Yes..

I started sewing about 10 years ago when my little girl was born. I wanted to make her cute clothes, blanket, bags. you name it. That's why I started collecting my pretty fabrics.
As I now have a big space I can make all the mess I like. I moved all of my stuff to my studio.I am also starting a little sewing club. Today is my first class.

Have a wonderful day, wherever you are.

This is what I've been doing.

I'd been busy for a while, as I had a great project sending a lot of goodies to overseas.
I was fun but  hard work. Finally the container full of vintage items had left Melbourne today to a far away land. Hope everything arrives safely .

Studio Moving Day

Finally, I have moved most of the junk out from my storage and the garage at my house.
Nothing much is going on at the moment. It will take many moons to clean and organize everything.
I finally counted how many chairs I have collected over the year to be upholstered.
Can you guess how many chairs I might have?
Its 50, yes, you hear me correct. Big Five Zero. 50.. grrrrrrrrrrrr
I will have so much fun reuphostering them all.

Here is how my studio look like this afternoon..

Hope you all have a wonderful day wherever you are.
