Do you guys don’t forget this makeover from last yr?
Properly, I’m super fired up to announce I am once once again taking portion in the Feast Watson Re-Enjoy Project!
For any person unfamiliar with the campaign, the Re-Really like Task is a charitable collaboration among Feast Watson and Salvos Shops. The venture follows eight style personalities as they each and every up-cycle an item of furnishings into a exclusive statement piece. Factors culminate in all finished pieces currently being auctioned for charity via eBay from eight – 17 July. Awesome!
It’s Bigger and Far better than ever this year.
Also, somewhat far more daunting.
You see, following such a positive response to my make-in excess of final year, I was feeling the stress. I even regarded declining. Of program, that would have been plain stupid and I’m soooo glad I didn’t! On prime of that although, the calibre of the designers this yr is crazy great. The likes of Mark Tuckey, Tara Dennis, Deb Bibby…just to title a few. Market icons folks – gulp! As flattering as it is becoming named between this kind of awesomeness, it’s also a tad intimidating for minor Kristine Franklin from The Painted Hive. That mentioned, it’s equally exhilarating so I’m gonna focus on that!
For those who don’t know, Feast Watson specialise in premium wood finishes, so the furnishings “re-loves” need to center close to just that wood. This makes for a refreshing departure from paint, and provides a fun possibility to get added inventive.
So, right here’s my glorious beginning level…
A massive melamine wardrobe I picked up for just \$50 (replete with some of my fave pet dislike furniture traits).
What, “melamine”? Didn’t you just say “wood”?
Yeah, but rest assured, I have a strategy!
Rather than take on a sympathetic restoration, I want to experiment with a fashion of furnishings I know is prevalent, affordable, and just plain meh, and completely flip it on its head! By undertaking so, I hope to inspire other folks to feel a bit sideways and perhaps even have a go at replicating my undertaking (a full tutorial will adhere to).
You with me?
Keep your fingers, and toes, crossed then. Who is aware of how this issue will end (hopefully not with me in the fetal position)!
