Every year the senior class gets me a gift for putting up with them……….uh, I mean for mentoring them and helping them be succesful in high school. One year they gave me a dog, a BIG dog, he was part Great Dane, and part Pit Bull. He was one of the sweetest, dopey-est dogs I’ve ever known. This year they gave me a new camera. To show my gratitude I decided to take some pictures of stuff I have made or modified with my new camera to share with the kids. As I was putting a presentation together I decided I’d like to share my work with a broader audience 🙂
I found these theater chairs in Bodega Bay at the old school-house there which was featured in Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds”. They are from an old theater in Sebastopol which is about half an hour from there. I made the base and decoupaged some pictures from an old calendar.
This is table made from a reclaimed five panel door.
This is an end table with a Celtic knot tile mosaic. I cut down the tiles from regular 4 inch tiles, it was pretty tedious, but turned out alright.
Bought this mirror at Target, it had hooks on it, I replaced them with antique doorknobs.
Metal flowers I designed and cut out with a plasma cutter after finishing a welding class.
A pebble mosaic paving slab I made for my folks.
