It’s 2 weeks before the next semester begins and we are taking the time to renovate the dorm living room. It probably has been in it’s before-state since it was built over 30 years ago. The room was just asking for a make-over!
I have been working with another student on this project. so far it’s day 4.
We started by sanding off all the chairs. That took us 2 days -or 8 hours.
Then we put a coat of wood finish and some clear varnish on them. The chairs look so much better now!
We also painted a little coffee table and started painting some patterns on the table tops. I will hopefully finish the paint jobs by tomorrow, then the bulk of the work is done!
I revamped an old desk lamp and made it into a taller lamp for the new student living room. The stand is made of concrete and a metal rod from an old bed. I think it will look great when it finds its home in Ewersbach. :)
Speaking of light, you know what is attracted by light?
Flies. In our case, about a hundred (!) of them. I have no idea where they are coming from, but they have taken over the kitchen. They are all over the windows and don’t seem to be impressed by the fly trap that has been there for the last 2 days.
Finally, I decided enough was enough, and I took a kitchen spatula and herded them out the window. Surprisingly, this actually worked quite well. There are still about 20 flies left, but I still think I can crown myself “Lord of the Flies” for tonight!
I have been working on a new painting this last week and it will probably be done by tuesday. Stay tuned until then!
If you have tried to get Seattle Seahawk-inspired stuff at my cafepress-shop lately, you might have encountered an empty page. Apparently the design was blocked because I mentioned the Seahawks in the tags. I will get it taken care of and apologize for any inconvieniences.
Here’s my new cafepress-shop! You can get t-shirts, cups, and other stuff related to works of art that I did! The site is still under construction, but you got to start somewhere. First collection of stuff: dedicated to this year’s Superbowl, for the Seattle Seahawks. Other work wil follow…
Share at will!
Here’s a T-shirt design for the Seattle Seahawks! They won the play-offs, and the way they won it will probably be remembered for a while. They are now in the superbowl.
I decided to go with a Popart retro-look, similar to Andy Warhol’s work in the 60s.
