The second stool.

Again I don't have a photo of this piece of furniture as it was before I tried to age it.;) This is the first photo of the stool with the first stage of aging I made. This time using sienna acrylic paint wasn't the right choice as the colour of the furniture is wood's light colour and sienna was not really seen on it at all.:)So I used light grey colour instead:)

And here it is almost ready to put in the office. It has got too much of grey colour on the legs right now so I will work on it in the near future.:)
On this side you can see one of absolutely beautiful Nikki's potion bottles I was able to buy sometime ago and two of my simple wooden books.

On the right side: two fab notebooks by very talented Ira on the top and great Slytherine's memory album from equally talented Nina I won in her first give-away.:)

And the view from the above so that you could see my books' covers ;D



Żeby postarzyć drugi taboret musiałam go pomalować tu i tam jasnoszarym kolorem. Okazało się , że przy tej barwie mebla, kolor sienna zupełnie się nie nadaje do tego celu:) Na górze taboretu ustawiłam 2 moje proste drewniane książki, butelkę po eliksirze od Nikki, 2 notesy od Iry i pamiątkową książkę Slytherinu od Niny.

That's a really pretty little jointed stool, Ewa -- did you make it? I love your book covers, too with the straps!

Alienora said...

O rany Ewa masz już chyba całą pracownię wyposażoną! A ja bym chciała małe conieco tam dołożyć od siebie:))))

How much load for one little stool - and kind of risky, I think. The books are balancing on the edge of gravitiy, I bet they'll fall down when Snape rushes in his office in a hurry... ;O) But now in all honesty, your books look great and you did a fine job in aging the stool.

Greetings
Birgit

Thank you Nina! and no, I didn't make it. Still need some tools to build the furniture;)The books with the straps are made by Ira :)

The Old Maid said...

Dzięki Zosiu! Meble rzeczywiście są już wszystkie - więcej się nie zmieści ;)Ale półki mam jeszcze 4 puste więc się muszę teraz skupić na słoikach żeby je zapełnić ;) Dziękuję,że wogóle o mnie w tej kwestii pomyślałaś!!!:D Wiesz, mnie się ta ciemno różowa chusta zrobiona przez Ciebie szalenie podobała...;)

The Old Maid said...

Brigit it is always a pleasure and fun to read your comments! Thank you so much! :D

The Old Maid said...

Muchas gracias Ascension!! I too think Ira's miniatures are genial!:D Besitos to you too!:D

Sans! said...

Ewa, I am so happy that I have 2 of your books :):) . I too put them on a bench :).

I really can't wait to see you put all the pieces together :). You have so many wonderful creations, whether done by you or friends.

Speaking of friends, where is Ira, do you know?

The Old Maid said...

Hey Sans! Slowly making progress but I want to wait till I have most of shelves filled:) There are still 4 to go ;) so more than half is ready ;)
I have no idea what has happened to Ira - I wrote to her like 2 weeks ago but with no reply. I am a bit worried about her silence too. Still hope she and her family could go on holidays perhaps?
