Firstly, I would like to apologise for not having posted in a while. My final examinations are creeping up on me, and with only 7 weeks to go I am spending most of my time working, eating and sleeping – together with an odd glass of wine to keep me sane!
Anyway, I thought I would share my first ‘antique’ purchase of sorts. I bought it in a huge antique warehouse about an hour from where I live…procrastination can be very expensive it turns out! The initial thought was to cover the inside with old maps (considering I study geography) or musical notes. Having realised the inside of the chest is in its original condition I think I may leave it be – no up cycling for me! After a little bit of negotiation (mainly from my mum- i was too nervous) we managed to get it for £70! A bargain i think!
Just a few photos to give you an idea….
The only issue is…the chest doesn’t actually fit in my room. It is currently sat in my kitchen at home whilst I am at university! Hopefully my mum will give it back to me when I return!!
