Abstract designed chair with a feathered Fan

| Mixed Media

By Hobby Ideas

Difficulty Level Beginner

For the Abstract Designed Chair - A mundane chair that has been painted in an abstract pattern with colours that are vibrant and eye catching. It could be made with any design that you desire with your own choice of colour combinations. It could also be done on a table that needs a makeover. 

For the feathered Fan - Who could imagine a table fan could turn out to look so funky and trendy. Here we have derived inspiration from peacock feathers and have painted them in a fun manner. It can brighten up any dull space that you decide to place it.
