DIY project: Black&white bowl

One has a lot of time on his/her hands while being without a job. (Quite a popular hobby lately, this job hunting thing, ha? Btw, if you know somebody who is hiring, I'm your (wo)man.) And once you have time, all you need is a simple white Ikea bowl, a black porcelain pen and some imagination.

We have had a plain white Ikea bowl, which we use mostly for salads. It is was nice but, you know, nothing special. So I used a porcelain pen (you can buy one in a crafty store) and followed my imagination.  

When I finished drawing I let it dry for 4 hours. In the end I put it in the oven for 90 minutes at 160 °C and let it cool after (just leave it in the oven). The information on the pen says that is dishwasher safe but since we don't have one, I can guarantee just for hand wash safe. :)

I liked salads before, now I LOVE them. :)

DIY project: Side table makeover

I have a really big crush on DIY (do-it-yourself) projects.
1. I always look for things that can be changed improved.
2. I could get some serious money if obsessive-reader-of-DIY-blogs would be a profession.
3. If you ask my dear M about the amount of (awesome) crafty stuff that I have in our tiny apartment he would just roll his eyes.
But why bother just him with my obsession I asked myself? And so I decided to post some of my projects here on my blog and hopefully inspire somebody else.

In the beginning of this year I was coming home from my French lessons and there she was. A little wooden table, left on the pavement for the garbage man to take it away. My heart jumped and  adopted her in a second. She was quite damaged from the rain (I guess she was an outside table in her previous life) and in a serious need of sanding.

And so it began. First a zillion hours of sanding (wave your flabby arms good bye!), followed by two coats of water-based varnish. 

I painted the legs in white and added another coat of varnish to the top part, just to be sure. 

Et voilà, I'm in love!
