OUR mission statement

MADE ON THE LEFT was founded in 2008 by independent designers to support Western Australian creative talent. We hold bi-annual handmade craft markets to showcase local designers.

Being on the left hand side of Australia no longer

means you'll be at a disadvantage.

Our aim is to support all creative designers and events showcasing independent labels. MOTL is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organisation. You may wonder why we promote other markets besides MOTL; it’s because it’s not about us, its about you; the buyers and sellers of indie wares. Here at the blog, you’ll discover up to date information about our latest market, the low-down on some of Perth’s emerging talents, other opportunities for artists and designers and a little bit of fun stuff too. It’s all right here… welcome!

Re-Love Project Part 3

Now, I know I promised the fun bit of our Re-Love Project next but first... some more sanding! Fortunately all the major sanding is done and we just need to give it a light sand this time.
We are using 2 products to add a bit of colour to our rocking chair - Feast Watson Prooftint traditional stain: Brown Japan and Feast Watson Crackle Lacquer top coat in Opal Gleam. 

We gave the base section and the headpiece of the chair a few coats of the brown japan stain. It is quite strong smelling so don't forget to use it in a well ventilated area and wear a mask! After applying each coat, we wiped with a rag to remove the excess stain.

Next we gave the armrests a coat of opal gleam. We only used the top coat as we didn't want a crackle effect.

Now we're almost finished!
