Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation;
the old has gone, the new has come!

spring posy drawers and bench seat

I no sooner finished this little bench and it sold.

Photo: Picked this cute little set of drawers up just before Christmas and knew they would make the perfect little ottoman, for the end of a bed or for an entry just right to sit on and put on your shoes that are stored in the drawers. My dilemma is what fabric and what colour? Too many choices!
Here is a before, 
sorry it is not the best, I lost a lot of photos in a computer crash and I took this with my phone.
I picked it up at an op shop one day and immediately knew that it would be perfect with a seat on top.

I imagined it as shoe storage with a little seat on top to sit on and put your shoes on.
Originally I was going to do it in neutrals, thinking it would be for an entry, 
but instead I decided to go for a lovely green with pink floral, thinking it would be perfect for a little girl's room.

I painted it with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Lucketts Green, then distressed it lightly and finished it with hemp oil.
I kept the original handles, in fact I had to paint around them because they were impossible to remove!
I finished the drawers in white.
I was going to make some matching cushions but it sold too quickly for that!
This piece sold very quickly on my Facebook page and has gone to it's new home.
