My Chairs are Here !!

My chairs finally arrived last week from
They are suitable for outdoor and are painted in an outdoor
acrylic paint rather than the 2 pac that many are painted in.
It has rained a few times and are sitting in hot sun, so far
so good, love them.  Much more comfortable than I thought
the curve in the back makes such a difference.

I made a few outdoor cushions in  some lovely fabric I got from the  They are based here in Brisbane 
and prices are very good.

This is a dark navy and off white.

One outside my studio, cushion on the way.
I ordered the wrong amount of fabric, so waiting for
some more to arrive.
Can sit here and watch the kids in the pool.

A late gift for my lovely friend Bridget.
I borrowed the wrapping idea from a picture on 
Pintrest I found, they had added some white Christmas 
balls, very simple and elegant.

My centrepiece for the Christmas table.
A driftwood tray that came with the glasses and pebbles
which I replaced with small pearly shells from Blake and Taylor
in Paddington ( Brisbane) .  I found the blue tea light holders 
in Bulimba yesterday.  Perfect, look lovely at night.

My next project is this old chair I have had for years.
I want to give it a coat of white paint but will have to start
with new seat cushions to start with, running out of time.

Hope you are having a creative weekend.
Time for something bubbly I think
