French Hat Box - oooh la la!

you may remember in a previous post that I revamped an old trunk into a gorgeous French style storage piece. Then I found a very large old hat box and thought they'd make perfect partners...

In this photo the trunk is on top of the wardrobe and even the leather straps match - what are the chances??

I painted it using some home made chalk paint and used the same image on the top as I'd used on the trunk...

This address originally came from a photographers label on the back of an old photo but I love the style and transferred it using freezer paper...

I'm really pleased with how both these pieces turned out and they'll both go to the next Milton Keynes Handmade and Vintage Extravaganza on 7th/8th September - save the date and come and see me right next to Costa coffee - yum!


  1. I came over from The Cottage Market's Junkin' Joe link party. So glad. I have read and read your posts and was thoroughly delighted with the photos, the items, and the vintage vibe! I am now a follower.
