Lucy was given this blanket box for her Christening thirteen years ago and I’m embarrassed to admit that it was intended back then that I paint it in some way.

It’s done the rounds in our house, moving from room to room in it’s unprimed sate being useful in all manner of ways. Just never Lucy’s and never painted.

Until now. For her newly renovated room (which I’ll show you tomorrow) I used the floral design from the Cath Kidson wallpaper to decorate this box once we’d whitewashed it with watered down emulsion.

Et viola!

She’s very happy with it even after a thirteen year build up. More pic’s tomorrow.
