VW Beetle 1975. 1200 restoration and tuning by ErnaShu

I bought this beauty in a terrible state. By hat I mean she had not bumpers, the interior was in a terrible state, the engine needed a lot of work and service, we had to fix everything from installation to service the engine. My desire was to try to work on the cars and finally I achieved it with this cutie from 1975th. Front and rear bumpers are done by my sketch and they are hand-work of masters from Velika Kladusa, Agica and Izo. The interior is of course ErnaShu custom made :). I did new insulation in the floor, also floor and carpets are custom-made by me and leather car seats. Car ceiling I did in flames combining 3 types of colors and leather and that was to hard to make but it looks amazing. After all that hard work (handmade work) I have the most beautiful oldtimer and I had pain in my arms fon 2 weeks, but no pain no gain ;).

Before!
Starting with the floor!
Front bumpers.
Back bumpers.
My beauty with new bumpers!
Back bumper.
The only photo where you can see me working and handsewing around steering wheel. That was painfull!
Several painfull hours later.
Now this is what it looks like when woman starts making handmade car seats ;)
My beauty, and yes I love skulls :)
On the doors I have changed the old plastic window handle with this chrome handle. Everything else on the doors I had upholster with leather.
As you can see the front seats are old Recaro seats and I think that they look great, the back seat is original from this beetle.
Fron Recaro seats. I did them with this lines because I wanted to have that real oldtimer look car seats like in American cars.
Here you can see the flames from leather and it was very hard to take photo of them since the interior space is very small and flames are over the entire ceiling.
Back seat!
On the engine I have changed almost everything with new parts.
My beauty!
My beauty!

So, this project I did just for me, since I wanted a little different Lita look alike shoes and everybody these days have them in black, and with spikes and so on, for that reason I made this pair just for me ;) Under this blue denim layer is leather and with technique similar to decoupage I used this thin denim look like material and in small pieces applied it on the leather. Blue is the new black ;)

How to make a coffee table!

I did my balcony and I could not find any suitable table, so I decided to make one. And this is how it goes;). It is very simple, and anyone can do it, everything that you need is some rope, old car tire, a hot glue gun and a piece of a wooden plank in the size like the tire (just cut the plank in the size like the tire , place it on the tire and glue it). After that, begin from the middle of a tire with the rope, first glue the rope on one spot in the middle and just go around and around and that is it. In this sample I made ​​this table with wooden legs, you can buy the legs in your furniture store. Enjoy ;)

New upholstery for old dentist chairs.

Znate onaj osjećaj kad odete kod zubara a niste ni ušli u ordinaciju a već vas je strah a zub prestao da boli:). Nedavno sam prijatelju koji je stomatolog u Njemackoj predložila da mu sredim stomatološke stolice koje su stvarno bile još iz doba komunističke Njemačke i same od sebe su bile strašne. Naravno da nisam nikad ništa ni slično u životu radila i naravno da sam kao i uvjek se zaletila a nisam razmišljala koliko će to težak posao biti. Najteži dio posla je razmontirati sve i jedan dio na stolici i još teži dio je vratiti taj svaki dio nazad i da stolica i dalje radi. Tu mi je ipak pomogla muška ruka moje ljubavi koji je teške dijelove razmontiravao i morali smo bukvalno popisivati šta gdje ide, koja žica gdje da ne bi na kraju upropastili stolicu. Fotografije prije i poslije. Žao mi je što nisam uslikala i svoje ruke prije i poslije jer su bile pune žuljeva i rana od tapaciranja stolice.

You know that feeling when you go to the dentist and you have not even entered the office and you already have a fear, and the tooth pain is gone :). Recently, I have suggested to my friend who is a dentist in Germany,to fix his old dental chairs, and the chairs were really  from the era of Communist Germany :) and the chairs were horrible. Of course I did not think how hard would that be, as always I am to euphoric about new project. The hardest work was to dismantled the parts of the chair and the hardest part is to restore that every part of the chair back and afcorse the chair must work like it did before. However, thanks to male support  from my hubby, he had dismantle the chair and that was the hardest part and we literally  had to writte ​​what goes where, what wire where, what screw where. Here are the photos before and after. Now, I'm sorry that I did not take a photo from my hands before and after work because they were full of blisters and wounds from upholstering chairs.

Old dentist chair (before)


Small chair (before)


 ...and the final look of my dentist chair, yes I did it in white and grey and it looks really good ;)




The small chair looks realy good, I did it in white and grey and this grey part is hand carved in white material and then stitched together. And yes, you do not see things like this in dentist office but I think it fits perfectly.

My new collection for 2012!

Dragi moji, ili drage moje, svašta se izdešavalo a mene nema pa nema, uglavnom sad sam tu. Ovog puta donosim vam novu kolekciju, takodjer isključivo ručni rad, ubila sam se od posla, prsti me bole i ruke uzduž i poprijeko:) ali volim svoj posao, volim osjećaj euforije kad je neki model završen, kad sve sve kockice i boje poslažu i kad ga konačno neko učini svojim. Kolekciju sam potpuno sama radila i trebalo mi je jako dugo vremena,, materijali su većinom pamuk i koža, a torbe u kolekciji su od pamučnih materijala sa ukrasnim perlama, nitnama i sličnim điđama. Nakit sam također po prvi put radila u ovoj kolekciji i rađen je od mješavine kamena i školjki, ručno brušen i oblikovan, oslikan i ofarban sa neizostavnim detaljima poput perja i kože. Inspiracija?! Pa sami prosudite :)U idućim postovima ću detaljnije prikazati torbe, nakit i još po nešto;)


Dear friends, this time I bring you my new collection, also exclusive handmade by me, I am dead from work, my fingers ache and my hands are dead:) but I love my job, I love the feeling of euphoria when a model is complete, when all the colors and all the elements are arranged. It took me a very long time to make and finish this collection, the materials are mostly cotton and leather, the bags in the collection are made of cotton material with decorative beads, studs and similar Gizmos.  For the first time in this collection you can see my jewelry, the jewelry is made ​​from a mixture of stone and shells, hand-cut and shaped, painted and repainted with intrinsic details like feathers and skin. Inspiration?! Well, judge for yourself :)
