this is a piece for a swap (!?!)...

As I said in my last post, i love collecting junk and changing it into something else. So I found this old drawer in a pretty bad state... i love cubby holes hung on the wall to fill with bits - so I painted this little lady...
and she now looks like this - but I still havent finished with her...

There was this defect in the wood which I decided to leave and paint around!

Have a peaceful weekend everyone!

    Interesting you left and painted around the defect because now I can imagine some figure sitting down in that little box that could be a room in a little house.
    can't stop my mind :)
    have a lovely evening

    There is so much to love about cubby holes. I could probably have 200 in my house and still not have enough. I love the color you have chosen for it.
