No. 11 {well traveled}

September 29, 2010

We are pretty stoked about No 11.….not only did he turn out bet­ter than we DREAMED, but he was SO much fun to create!

Take a look…

He started out with some pretty bad scratches and bro­ken hardware…but with a lit­tle repair…

No. 12    {before}

…he is the PERFECT shade of turquoise now…

No. 12

BUT that is not all folks.…we exper­i­mented with paper for the first time and IT WAS AWESOME
This was an old over­sized cal­en­dar I bought in Italy in 2003…here is the process of us fit­ting it to the top…

No. 12 {process}

as you can see, the cal­en­dar had amaz­ing images and had been stashed away for years until FINALLY we found its destiny…

It will be SO hard to let this one go, but he is up on etsy look­ing for a home as per­fect as he is…

No. 12

Happy Wednes­day.

Cheers

  • GAH!!!! LOVE, LOVE LOVE!!!! The cal­en­dar is an amaz­ing addi­tion. Great job team Torrence.

  • I’m in LOVE with this desk! The pic­tures on top just make it perfection.

    Amaz­ing. How did you apply the pages of the cal­en­dar? Did you glue them on and then put clear var­nish or glass over them?

    • Thanks! Castlesb– I used modge podge then sev­eral coats of poly on top with a light sand­ing in between each coat. It took a while, but it made for a super smooth finish!
