nursery chair

A few of months ago, I was on a hunt for a nursery chair. I knew what I wanted, a white rattan chair…but didn’t want to fork out big bucks for it so I decided to make a trip to my local op shop (second hand shop). It took me a couple of weeks to finally spot one. It was an ugly dull green chair. Oh well, I couldn’t care less about its colour as I knew it had potential, a few spray cans later and ta-da, totally transformed!

  • Second hand chair: $15
  • 3 White spray cans: $9
  • Total: $24

Now that’s a bargain. They retail for at least $80. Give it a try the next time you’re thinking of buying something new.

we’re moving…

Out  inshallah! We get the keys to our new place on the 15th so we’ll be leasing this place through an agent soon. I am due in 2 weeks so hopefully we can have a smooth transition before I go to labour. (edit: I gave birth 2 weeks early, 3 days before we’re supposed to get the keys!). The good thing is, its only a 5 minute drive. So that makes it all a bit better as we don’t have to rush all in one go. I have been busy packing everything into boxes incase I give birth early, but usually they say first babies go over their due date. (edit:I didn’t manage to pack everything (due to early labour) so hubby had to chuck stuff into boxes and now I can’t find my things!). Notice the burgundy wall? No, I didn’t decide on that colour. It was already there when we first moved in.

Our new house needs a lot of work modernising. Though still in a very good living condition, I’d rather fix up the necessary such as, update the kitchen (more like demolish and re-build), strip out the ugly wallpaper and vinyl flooring etc before I move in with bubs. So the plan is to vacate this place before my due date. Get new tenants. Go to labour. Have bubs. Stay at parents for x amount of weeks until hubby finishes renovating. Move into our new home.

We got my sister to take photos so we can put it on lease soon inshallah. I really hope the new tenants will take good care of this house as much as I did. I am going to miss this place *sob*.

canvas // handpainted


I love lime green + dark brown. I think its such a fresh colour concept. It will be the theme for our new home inshallah. Currently, I have just finished painting a set of 3 canvasses (30 x 30cm), using acrylic water based paints. I have no idea where I’m going to hang it yet but at least I know I have something, handmade. And I know that had I not made it or plan to make it once bub arrives, it will never happen. Or at least for the first 6 months. Simply because, my baby quilt patchwork that I have been wanting to make ever since I found out I was pregnant, (the cut fabrics) are still sitting in the drawer. I blame it on the morning sickness.
