While I was gone a big box arrived at my doorstep...
what a fun surprise!
I had forgot I had purchased this little piece with all the craziness life has been the past couple of weeks...
Isn't it a sweet little thing?
Just 15" tall...
I thought that stripping/painting/waxing & distressing this piece would be a fun winter project,
after seeing her in person
i'll leave the paint as is...
Flip open the lid
Shoe shine anyone?
I don't know much about this piece other then it came from Ohio.
I'm thinking it may have been something someone crafted on their own and wasn't a purchased piece...
but that is what I loved about it...
looks like something my dad would have built...
that is what attracted me to the piece.
Doesn't she have the cutest little legs??
I love her green chippy paint...
Then there is the cloth part of the lid...
It is about the size of a piece of note book paper.
Do I replace it or leave it?
replace it with a
cross stitched sampler
needle punched design
wool appliqued design??
You have seen the before pictures...
hopefully I will have
by winter's end...
According to the Farmer's Almanac
it sounds like tis
going to be
here in the midwest...
time to start
hoping your holiday weekend is filled with family, friends & fun,
