It had a bit of mold growing on it from the damp atmosphere, so I gave it a clean, painted an undercoat, oh I know it could be classed as a terrible thing to do to an antique ! then painted it with 'China White' eggshell. it looked boring and lacked character, so I added some artists acrylic in blue and painted stripes, and sponging. Then it still looked boring so I made a wee bunting to hang on the eaves. What do you think of it ?? I tried to make it look like an old beach hut, I feel that I have succeeded. It was to go back into the summerhouse, but I love it, so it may go in my study as I need extra storage space for ribbons and buttons and it has a very handy deep drawer inside.
