Graphic Blue small ottoman

Second Ottoman Project   Perfecting new skills and adding some fun details!

 Hello!   Today I am sharing my second upholstery project!  This ottoman is much smaller in scale than the last one I did.  This is for a young woman's bedroom sitting area and will be by a futon.  I also added some nail head details.  I love how this turned out.  

Here are some pictures along the way.

 Up to this point the process is the same as the Floral Ottoman Project 

.    The only difference was that I adjusted the overall height as this ottoman needed to be lower.

Floral Ottoman Upholstery Project

Projects and Learning new skills!

I have been wanting to learn some upholstering skills for a very long time.  Like many of you, I struggle with finding the time to learn a new skill.  I am so happy that I made the time and went out of my comfort zone.    It was well worth the effort and time.

I started out  small, an ottoman for a sitting area.  

Here are some pictures of the process

Friday's Interior Hand Rendering! Dreamy Blue Great Room

This Friday I decided to pick up my hand rendering tools again and have a go at it. 
 Conceptualizing a design idea for a space is something I enjoy immensely.  Articulating that concept into a drawing that your client can see, and hopefully feel is imperative.  This part of the process, when done by hand is more challenging for me than coming up with the idea. I hope you enjoy this artistic translation of a recent design project of mine.  
It is still a work in progress.  
Today, I combined my hand work with some computer and photo shop tools.  I kind of like the way it turned out!     

Happy Decorating!
