I've given both crates (well, crate and drawer) a wash of emulsion, very watered down and wiped off and I like them much better now. They look a bit more muted and driftwoody and suit the living room better.
I had to re-do the lettering on the Hitchin Lavender one as it got lost under the wash of pale paint.
For the drawer I decided upon the logo from Bettys, Yorks finest tea rooms.
York is where I was born and grew up and Bettys is a must visit tea room in the City centre. They queue up outside to get in, it's that good!
Here's the famous Fat Rascal
I've never had one as I'm not a cakey sort of person but I had the most delicious Eggs Benedict of my life in here!
This is not a sponsored post! I'm just saying if you're in York, you've got to go!
So here's the crate, er, drawer...
Just need two matching plants now...
I took a sanding sponge to the lettering of the Hitchin one and I think it looks better. I'll do it to the new one when it's dry.
I'll try not to do any more crate posts for a bit ok? Obsessive? Moi?
Without further ado, the winner of the giveaway is... (drumroll...)
