Remake of an old wooden chest

Found this wooden chest in a thrift shop for £8, I liked the size and the overall quality of it, but not how it looked.
 
So I painted it white and dabbed the edges with distress ink Walnut Stain, spray painted the metal details with a copper spray and added a French label from The Graphics Fairy and now it's a lot more me :)

Allsorts - A stitch up

Time for a new challenge at Allsorts and this time we want you to Stitch it up!
My sewing machine isn't all too keen on working with paper but I have a Churchill personality - I will never surrender! And I made some faux stitching around the image just in case... ;)

Sugar bowl - Anything goes

First contribution as a DT member at The Sugar Bowl.
The theme for this month is Anything goes, easy way to start :)

I used the Sugar Nellie image Hey little Birdie and coloured it with distress re-inkers. Boxes are so tricky to take good pictures of but I did my best :)

 I really like how the scroll die turned out, don't know why I haven't used it more...
