Workspace Wednesday 97.

August 28, 2013 | Photography, Workspace Wednesday

I know these last couple of “Workspace Wednesdays” have been less about my workspace and more about the general goings on around here.. but I haven’t been doing much work that warranted pretty photos lately! I hope you don’t mind seeing more of these day-to-day bits.. even if they’re not strictly work related ;)

Found Film

Dave likes to collect old film cameras, and every now and then he gets the bonus of finding one that still has a film inside. I find this so exciting! Who knows when or where these photos were taken.. or who owned the camera before us. It’s like uncovering a mystery.

Such was the case with these photos here.. this film came out of a camera Dave bought years ago (although he can’t remember which one) and we only just had it developed a few days ago.

The photos are nothing spectacular, and might even be seen as more of a mistake than anything.. but I think they’re so cool! The colours, grain, light flares.

DIY Faux Dipped Legs

August 23, 2013 | DIY

After I’d finished the stool from yesterday’s DIY, I went looking around our apartment for something else I could attack with Washi Tape. I decided pretty quickly that this little lady with her lovely peg legs needed some faux gold-dipped legs STAT.

Washi Dipped Legs

It’s a much more subtle look than yesterday’s bright teal, but I really love how the gold looks with this timber.

It was a piece of cake to do too, just upturn your table (or chair/stool etc), take some MT Casa Tape in whatever colour you choose (normal width washi tape would work too), measure down the leg to the point at which you want the tape to start, and get sticking! Repeat for each leg.

NOTE: Washi Tape is quite gentle, but if you’re worried about what it might do to your furniture/walls once it’s removed, please do a test first!!

Voila! It’d look great in a bright colour too don’t you think? Maybe around dining chairs, or a hall table.. so many possibilities! And if it turns out you don’t like it, or want a change… just take it off ;)

And now I’m off for the weekend.. I hope you all have a good one! See you Monday. x
