A fishy chair. I painted this one a long time ago, is in its 4th home in fact :)
My English chair. This one was a padded upholstered chair that I stripped back to bare wood. I took the inside back support out to give it cleaner lines. I love it even though it is full of tack holes. I covered the seat with fabric from a shirt I found in an opshop and edged it with some vintage braiding. The fittings on the back are actually old brass earrings :) With things the way they are in London right now they could do with a good sit down.
This ones my ode to the old wild west. Just a gorgeous old oak chair that I have tacked a cactus to... I cut it from a piece of rusty tin.

And of course every girl needs a throne... doesnt she?
