DIY UPHOLSTERY THRIFT STORE CHAIRS USING AFRICAN FABRIC

IKEA HACKED

image

Am about to IKEA hack this cuties

image

I bought this beauties at a thrift store nearby. I bought 4 of them since I have been really looking for chairs for my living room. To my husband this were just ok but me because I have the crafty syndrome when I bought them they were covered with African fabric and they were white..

SO LET’S GET STARTED….
YOU WILL NEED…
â– Screw driver
â–  Paint (this is not necessary if you are not going to paint your chairs)

image

There are so many of these paints, I never knew white has so many shade lol. use primer

â–  Wood finisher/ gloss paint
â– Fabric
â– Glue gun ( I used glue gun because I don’t have a stapler).
â– gloves ( I didn’t use them, it was my first time doing this I just went in.
See my arm lol

image

Use gloves lol

1. Started off by screwing off the seat from the chair frame.

image

image

Save the pins very important

                  

image

Observe how they did the corners of the chairs so you can apply it when you are doing your chair

2. Now let’s cover the seat padding first.

image

I used the fabric from one of the chairs as a template then I cut out this fabric here.

image

Place the chair padding in the centre of the fabric and make sure the whole fabric covers all corners of the seat.

image

I had to do this on the floor but any who...just pleat the corners and glue down around the seat...

image

This is how it should look no wrinkles on the fabric, just flawless. Now we are done, done with the seat, now time to do the chair frame.

3. Painting the chair frame… phew this is work I tell you… I used 7 bottles or cans of paint. I bought this paint from Walmart.

image

I took the chair outside and sprayed all over the chair frame and I made sure that no brown was showing, anything but white

image

I bought the paper poster board at a dollar store. Which i layed down to protect the floor from the paint.I did all 4 chairs and I waited for them to dry, which was the next day and I applied the wood finisher to give them that shinning gloss finish.

5.Finished chairs….

image

This chair just like Drake it started from the bottom now its here.

image

I thrifted the guitar too for $9.95

image

Lol now I can have guests over and rub it in their faces lmaoo.... IKEA HACKED

If you are in Miami I can do your chairs/ couch for you, using african fabric..I don’t charge much, just the change you have hihihi 😆😂😂😂😂😎.

Until next time America and Africa
Until next time.

AFRICAN MUSIC AND AMERICAN MUSIC RESPECT TOWARDS WOMAN

images

I always wondered why in America, will a woman in her right senses smile and take it as a compliment when his man or boyfriend whichever it is, calls her a bitch or a whore. I have seen this happen quiet a lot.

I also wondered why these woman will go around even boosting about being his bitch, not his bitch in fact his bad bitch, how she is a bad bitch and what not.

I also wondered why African females call themselves black queen, beautiful woman, all this beautiful names a woman will call her self in respect of her status in the community. Why an African woman will slap the hell out of a man who will call her a bitch, African woman i mean those who are educated but still not corrupted by the western lives or the so called “3rd world countries”. There is no how the word bitch can be used in a good way. Because they will say “don’t take this wrong you are a bad bitch in a good way”.

Oh really like wtf do u mean.

Well now i see this trend in Africa, you know Africans we like copying whatever Americans are doing, i think we think that is civilization. Our music is so changed. We call ourselves the N word, do u even know what it means.

It is not civilization to be calling women whores, bitches or cursing to make a song. This is the reason why i don’t listen to rap music.

Enjoy your Friday, i am about to go listen to rap music and sip some hot tea.

Had fun

image

I love Haiti too

image

Mmmhhh look at what you missed

I found this event on the app Living social I think and I downloaded the app just few minutes ago and I was just scrolling checking what not in it or what was it about.

image

image

image

image

Then I stumbled on bosses of fashion show, I wanted to put up a table so immediately I contacted them lol it was on the same day in the evening so I just texted them I want to put up a table, lol to make a long story short I did not have time but I ended up just going to support them.

image

The designers also had their game on point look at that dress

image

This fashion show was so organized

image

image

She werked it too

Now let me tell you this,  you should have come, it was my first time going there but God did I enjoy myself, I had fun, cocktails and they had meals too and you could eat for free, Lord the music was great they had two live bands. The models had it going too. And bravo to the designers.

image

image

She gave me a show,I really feel that I got more than what I paid for

image

One of the designers

image

Even though they started late than the time, I could careless, it was a saturday spend well at hollywood live night club.

image

image

The only thing I did not like about the fashion show was that,  they had too many designers and the show was long and had too many breaks and before the show was over people already started leaving I guess they thought it was over.
But other than that you missed out. I had a chance to give my business cards out and socialized too. ;););)

Go on your phone and download  living soacial app and go out and have fun.

BANK OF BOTSWANA: NEW FAMILY OF COIN TO BE INTRODUCED

NOT ONLY AM I HAPPY ITS A NEW FAMILY OF COINS, I AM HAPPY ITS MONEY, I LOVE MONEY BUT WAIT, WHO DOESN’T? YEAH RIGHT LOL YOU DO TOO.

The public is informed that the Bank will introduce a new family of coin in the first quarter of 2014. The introduction of the new coin follows a comprehensive review of the national currency, in this case Botswana coin. This is in line with international norms where currency is reviewed and updated periodically to take account of latest technology trends and security features. Indeed, in designing and minting the new family of coin, the Bank accessed the latest technology in the industry with a view to producing good quality coin.

The new family of coin has retained the seven denominations; viz; 5 Pula, 2 Pula, 1 Pula, 50 thebe, 25 thebe, 10 thebe and 5 thebe. The detailed shapes and features of the coin will be published shortly in posters and related media.

The current coin will be exchanged for new coin and/or bank notes at commercial banks over a period of six (6) months following the launch of new coin. What will then be old coin will be demonetised and exchangeable for equivalent value only at
the Bank of Botswana in Gaborone and Francistown for a period of five (5) years.

Members of the public are requested to familiarise themselves with the features of the new coin, once they are in circulation.

And now maybe our currency will be known world wide. I really can’t wait to see the new set of coins, you go Botswana government. 😉 😉

SHOES LOVER QUOTES

image

I never wear flats. My shoes are so high that sometimes when I step out of them, people look around in confusion and ask, “Where’d she go?” and I have to say, “I’m down here.
Marian Keyes

Sometimes comfort doesn’t matter. When a shoe is freakin’ fabulous, it may be worth a subsequent day of misery. Soak in Epsom salts and take comfort in the fact that you’re better than everyone else.
