A few days ago I was out and about with my camera when I was surprised and delighted to come across...
...this very nice blanket box. It had obviously been sitting out in all weathers for quite some time.
I asked the owners whether I could have it...and I'm happy to say that it is now sitting out in the polytunnel waiting until I have some time to get working on it.
Wow! I was so excited, my fingers just itched to set about it with a paintbrush - I know some people would think that was terrible but it is just brown furniture and of no particular pedigree, or great age.
The inset panels are just crying out to me.
I guess before I begin painting it, I need to decide whether to keep it for myself or to paint it for one of the grandchildren to keep their toys or treasures in.
I'll keep you posted.
