Fixin Stuff!

20110921-121541.jpgSo I did it! I tore up the old chaise lounge after my cat Harper had tore the living shite out of it and recovered it up with this lovely beige and green upholstery fabric. Both fabrics were donated to me by friends! I am still working on the back pillow and will make a cover for the seat area that can be removed or washed. I am SURE my cat will do his number on this one as well!!! I guess it’s good that I can recover it again if needed. Plus he needs the one sacrificial piece of furniture in the house to destroy instead of all of our living room furniture!!

So if you have a chair or lounge to recover….. don’t be afraid to tackle it. It’s like a puzzle. Just remember the steps you took to remove all the old stuff. Use those pieces as your template for the new fabric. and cut. Then staple like you have never stapled before!!! 😉

I have been artistic in one way or another all my life. Growing up in a creative family fueled my desire towards being an artist. I moved to Santa Cruz, CA from Detroit, MI in 2009, I needed a creative outlet and started volunteering at a local Clay Studio where I created many hand built ceramic vessels and fun sculptures. From there, I stumbled into sewing and started a handbag line under the name Mackerilla Design. After many years of sewing my bag designs, (which I currently still sell sewing patterns of my designs on ETSY and through a few online retailers) I wanted to get back to being an artist and started painting in 2014. Since I am passionate about animals and volunteer for rescues, painting dogs and cats in acrylic paint on canvas would be my subjects of choice! But I do love to paint all other living creatures as well as a few humans here and there! My approach is to capture the animal’s essence through the look in their eyes. To show their vulnerability and love for their humans. I truly love painting and have so many ideas continuously swirling in my head! I feel I am still learning and growing. I am looking forward to my future to see my progression as being an artist. -Janice Serilla

    1. Yes the stripy green for the base and pillow. The other fabric is from my friend Jason. I am happy how it came out!
