I have been toying with the idea of giving up photography for a while and basically since I moved in my new house I think I have done only one or two shoots. Its still a passion of mine and is always something I will do for me but I no longer feel the drive to pursue it so aggressively and let it dominate all my time. There was a period when every weekend would be filled with photoshoots and as a result each evening I would be editing images until 11pm having worked all day as an engineer. Those days are gone and I am learning to relax and loving doing up my house.
I spent this weekend down in Glasgow helping my amazing sister decorate her bedroom. We painted it grey...pleased she is also loving grey!!
We were having a bit of a clear out and a trip to the recycling centre proved fruitful for me!! I spied a traditional style wing back chair in amongst the unloved furniture and decided it would be perfect for my house! I have been trying to find a chair to re-upholster but Ebay and its Pick Up Only pieces located in England is frustrating!! So we piled this chair into the back of the car and off we went...
|Love the studs on the back|
I am yet to decide exactly where the chair will go (bay window in lounge or dining room), and therefore what colour it will be. I wondered about doing it myself, I know somewhere which does upholstery classes. But think this might be a difficult item to attempt as a beginner!! So I am going to get some quotes from the professionals first. Will keep you updated on the chair :-)
Next interior project will be stripping the wall paper in the hall (this could take weeks) and also making curtains for the dining room. I have found another tartan fabric which I like so hopefully will be making a final decision soon.
