Wallpaper Art

A little insight into what's to come.

Here's one of the Florence Broadhurst wallpapers ('Egrets' on silver mylar stock) done on a frame - 600mm x 900mm - ready to go on the family room wall. I've done 2 of them and they'll go side by side on the wall alcove.

The wall is currently being painted in Moss from Porters Paints. When the painting is finished and the Egrets are hung I'll go through how to make it.

I have 2 others completed for my bedroom in Florence Broadhurst's 'The Cranes'. These are a smaller size, the Egrets are quite large, but suit where I'm going to put them.

Forgive my photography for the moment, I'm waiting on a visit from my son, the photographer, to do some decent pictures for me, but wanted to get something up on the blog.

I've gone through all the quick and easy projects I've done over the last twelve months and will start to feature them for you. The ottoman is a bigger job, so it'll be about a month before that's up. I'm still waiting on the legs to come from Victoria anyway.

Getting started

After following the Flying Ducks blogspot for a while, I decided it's time for me to get started. (I'm proud to say I have known Kylie from Flying Ducks for a number of years). Visit My Flying Ducks to see how Kylie has transformed her Brisbane apartment into a home.

designed to a T is going to be a bit of a mix of things, so hopefully you'll get some surprises each time you read my blog.

I mainly wanted to give other people the option to create beautiful things for themselves or their homes. My thoughts have been around all the projects I have done for my home and am planning to do.

It's going to be a bit of a DIY how to guide, what materials I used, and some step by step guides. Everyone's budgets are different, so I'm really only going to suggest materials and where I got them from, then it's up to you to decide how cheap or expensive you want to go.

The first step by step project I'm hoping to complete very soon is an Ottoman. I have a number of other projects already completed, just need to photograph them and put together some guides.

designed to a T will also bring to you some design and style tips, links to other blogs I'm following, and COMING SOON, my website.

Stay tuned.
