Something new.:) Coś nowego.:)

Finally  I can show you something new.:):)
Some of you may have noticed that what I love most to make when it comes to miniatures are chairs. Not only those easy-to-make-ones but mostly wooden ones. Specially when Someone Special is challenging me to make not one but two kinds of chairs I had never seen before, or these unusual seen on the pages of design (mostly) magazines.

This one is one of these "seen on the pages of magazine".:) I loved it shape, specially legs.

 And boy! It took me ages to make it! Not because it was hard to make but because of real life that made me taking care of everything different than making miniatures. So....I started one afternoon back in....November last year.... and finished it not more than a week ago. LOL!

Original chair on the photo of the magazine was upholstered and was quite dark. I thought of leaving mine "naked" as it gives it king of lightness and tried a few colours - white included -  but somehow it does look best in brown.;)

Sorry for not so perfect light on the photos but we still have not much of the sun and my workshop is also kind of dark.;)

Anyway this chair made from the scratch by me, bit aged but probably won't be looking that old.;), will be a part of my incoming-finally-give-away soon. You can already see the summer hat (made by me too) and scarf which are fixed to the chair and also will be a part of give-away. So stay tuned for more details!;D

 Wreszcie mogę pokazać coś nowego! Trochę mi zajęło zrobienie tej miniatury, bo niestety życie okazało się być bardzo absorbujące i krzesło czekało na dokończenie parę dobrych miesięcy. Zainspirowało mnie zdjęcie tapicerowanego mebla w jednym z naszych magazynów wnętrzarskich. Krzesło miało urocze nogi i postanowiłam zobaczyć "czy mi wyjdzie". I muszę przyznać, że jestem z niego bardzo zadowolona.:) Pozostawiłam je nie tapicerowane, bo wydaje mi się bardzo "lekko" wyglądać bez poduch. Przepraszam że zdjęcia są troszkę ciemne, ale w pracowni niestety światła nie mam za wiele.;) W każdym razie chcę dodać, że krzesło i to co widać na nim na zdjęciach będzie częścią give-away'a mojej Pracowni już niedługo. Muszę jeszcze coś dokończyć.;)  Więcej szczegółów już wkrótce!

Krzesło jest bardzo fajne i właśnie przez to, że bez poduch, wygląda ciekawiej. No i to zdjęcie z szalem... piękne!

The chair is beautiful! I can see why it took you so long. I love the finish on the wood and the open weave of the caning is fantastic.

I think the lighting in your pictures is just fine and looks nice.
