What I`ve been up to lately...

Hello my Lovelies, 
here is what I`ve been up to in the couple of weeks.
I was on vacation, like I mentioned in the previous post.
Regained some energy to finish some of the projects...
So here we go.
The patio is finished!
Yes really, for quite a time actually.
But the weather around here is crap, always raining and no good light.
So have to wait for the final shots.

Finished some paintings for the exhibition.

My exhibition is up tomorrow! Yey for that.
Actually I put all the paintings up today.

If you follow me on instagaram you already saw this here...

Some cabinets I am revamping for myself and for a client.

So, like you see, here are they in the pre-stadium, but I will show you the results soon.
So I got some Sh*t done. ;)
And I am happy to show you the finished products.

Join or not to join?

Hello Lovelies, how are you?
I am fine and back from my trip to Tenerife.
I was there for about two weeks and it was amazing!

So my topic today is join or not to join?
It is a really tricky question, with all these social media sites out there...
I am now in Facebook, Google+, here o blogger of course, following some guys on Bloglovin
and thinking about to joining Instagram and Snapchat.

Does all this do something for my career?
Or for anybody?

I don`t know, maybe I am not taking it all seriously like other people do.
I am posting rarely on all this platforms I think...
Maybe I should visit them more often.
Or is it, that I haven`t found the perfect site for me?

I think with Insatagram I found the perfect tool for me.
I am so so lived under a rock this whole time... :)

But it is fun and I would know your opinion on this topic, 
are you sometimes overwhelmed like me with all the stuff going on and all the new social media popping out everyday?

Or am I simply too old for this kind of stuff? XD
Anyways here is my Instagram account,
Just click on the left sidebar and follow...

I will share some more private photos, projects and painting progress as well.
But really a bit more about my daily life, so, who is interested?

Some snap shots from the exhibition...

Hello Lovelies, 
here are some photos from the exhibition I talked a lot on this blog lately.
It was an launch party at our city hall.
And the next day, every attended artist opened their own studio for the visitors.
We practically celebrated ourselves...LOL

It was fun, with good talks, nice art, 
oh so many different styles and lots of sparkling vine...;)

Here are some snapshots before the craziness started.

  (There is mine, do you recognize it? ;))

And here are two with some people on it, 
most of them were artists which have their paintings hanging here.
I have just two, than my mobile died :O!

This was pretty much it.
It was a nice evening and a pretty packed weekend after.
A great experience, and I think I will do it next year too.

Patio renovation! Or how to bring home, some beachy feeling...:) Part 4! - Just a quickie;)

Hello Lovelies!
How are you?
So here is my clean, 
bright newly renovated and painted patio/ sunroom! ;)
Here we go!

I want to sew a little curtain in a striped pattern 
to close up the cat toilet, for more privacy;)
See how the scratch pole fits perfectly on the platform?
My kitties love it!

Here it is now!
Perfectly cleaned, like I said.
And all of this stuff has to move in!

What do we have here?
Pillows, blankets, a bird, rugs (which are probably not going on the patio), more pillows, reclaimed chairs, candles, candle holders, glass bottles, plants, trays, curtains more blankets and pillows...
Oh so many pretty stuff here.
Stay tuned for the reveal, this will be thrilling!;)

I don`t want these rugs above, because , (as so many of you asked what I have or have not done with the old rug I had) I leave the old one there.
I have this rug which is old, really old, dirty and filthy and absolutely not the color I like but have a nice pattern.
At first I wanted to bleach it and paint another color.
But I don`t have time, the experience or the money to do this.
So I simply washed it with an pressure washer and put it back.

It is clearly clean now, but I don`t like the color at all.
Than it hits me!
I just flipped them over and voila! 
I have the bleached and worn out look I was going for!
Like it so so much!
And it fit`s perfectly into the color scheme!

See? So much better now, no more dark brown here. ;)

Like you saw in  this post here I`ve had an idea for a new coffee table for this space.
We simply took an old cable drum, like this one

mounted some wheel underneath, 
and a bigger wooden board on the top and the new coffee table was born!

And my father couldn`t resist to mount some wooden trinkets on it;/
But it looks nice...

He said, ha had something like this in mind...

Now I need to sad and paint it.

I thought something with a creme white top and some light grey bottom.
Let`s see how this will turn out!
So stay tuned for the full review!

Patio renovation! Or how to bring home, some beachy feeling...:) Part 3!

Hello Lovelies!
How are you?
I am back from my two day exhibition experience, 
it was really fun!
Really nice talks and interesting people.
I will show some photos from the exhibition later.
But now, back to the patio business!;)

As I told in the previous posts, 
I wanted to lower the benches and build in a cat toilet. thingy, something...

This was a completely fail at first! 
Because the benches wooden structure was rotten to the ground!
You can see right here, where the wood planks are, 
underneath we have two huge barrels for collecting rain water.
And the whole construction to held them was rotten too.

The water pump was leaking and a steady water rinse managed to damage the whole thing.

So we had to open everything up, throw it away and get some metal frames and 
wood to build the benches again!
Here is the whole mess!

This threw us a bit behind but we are ready now!
(And I can`t wait to show you the beautiful after photos. But this is a whole other post!;)

So we rebuild everything and this is how it looked...

And this is how it looked before the rebuild.

A bit different, right?

Oh I really can`t wait to show you the finished space, 
but at first here is a sneak peek of the new coffee table and hutch.:)

Are you as excited as I am? ;)
Have a nice start into the next week my Luvs!
