Vof vof friend! It’s me Nero here and today I show you how I rescued our old dictionary and fixed one old stool.
I think it’s better to show you first how this old stool looked before I fixed it.
It is old and looked like its best days had passed. Even my orange ball couldn’t cheer it up.
Look how the paint has damaged and this fabric here looks terrible.
Voila! I painted it white and picked the happiest Ikea fabric from our stash and now this old stool looks super!
It looks new also from under because I asked hb to cut new piece of wood and pillow foam. Over the foam I placed piece of fleese and then this bright fabric. This pink flower here is my favourite!
Hanna is also happy I finally fixed this stool becuase she’s the one who will see it when helping in the sewing room.
The other thing I like to show you today is our old dictionary. Even it’s old, it is still helpful, so I thought to rescue it.
I glued the bakc of the dictionary and then I was thinking to make a fabric cover for it. But super idea came to my mind. Few years ago I had made cover for the calendar … perhaps that could fit for the dictionary. It was a little bit too big – great – it was easy thing to make it smaller.
I turned it inside out, sew lines to make it smaller and then gave it a good wash. Now it’s like new again … or even better!
Hanna was modelling with our new stool and then she smelled something …
I’m sure she smelled hb’s apple pie! Oh I wish you could taste it – I’ll show you next time.
These were our calendars in 2013. I really enjoy making covers for books, journals and notebooks.
So here Hanna shows you the fixed stool. I really like it! It’s so bright and happy!
I just found out about new great linky party! It’s “Wanderging Camera” – all about photographing. This is a monthly event and will run on the 1st Thursday of every month. Soma at ‘Whims and Fancies‘ had this great idea and is hosting this linky party. I shall join the party! How about you?
Because I shall join the linky party, I tell you that it’s often challenge to take photos of Hanna. She tries to avoid camera. But me, I love to model and show things in my blog! And the light is another thing. Soma has some great tips about that in her post. We have lots of sunlight here and it can make thricks. I went all around the house to take these shoots of the stool.
Thank you so much for visiting! I’m always happy to see you here and love to tell you my stories and to read your messages!
NERO and HANNA
