Happy New Year!!!

I've been a long-time fan of TushTush. This amazing shop is run by Tali, a freelance illustrator living in Tel-Aviv. I purchased one of her original acrylic paintings a while ago, and I'm so in love with it I find myself constantly checking back to see what she's painting. She also does custom paintings of photographs that would make amazing Christmas gifts...just an idea for anyone looking for gift ideas :)

Today I tackled the back of Chair #3. Taking off both sides took about 4 hours, but at least this time I avoided blisters by remembering to wear gloves (but not before puncturing my hand with a rogue staple). Meh...lessons learned. I kept the fabric as intact as possible so I can use it for a pattern for cutting the new upholstery. I'm not sure yet if I'm going to try to duplicate the tufted look, or if I will opt for something simpler. After I got all the staples out I sanded the whole chair. Tomorrow I will do some more sanding and crack filling, and then get started on painting.
I've had a cough all week..probably the result of too much fun and not enough sleeping this past weekend. I finally caved and took some Nyquil around 2am last night so my alarm in the morning seemed like some sort of bad joke. In my groggy haze today I came across emmas designblogg, and am loving the crisp all-white Norwegian look. Those Swedes really know how to do it. It's all so clean and peaceful. Makes me want to crawl into bed...right...about...now.
